Alvin Bragg Is Not Out Of The Woods; Jordan Says Subpoena On The Table

Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan district attorney, is still subject to a subpoena, according to Sen. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who made the announcement on Sunday.

In an interview with Fox News' Sunday Morning Futures, Jordan criticized the indictment of former President Donald Trump and threatened to use his authority as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee to compel Him to testify before Congress if necessary.

If Bragg refused to testify voluntarily, Jordan responded to host Maria Bartiromo, "Everything's on the table, Maria." "We just received his letter back. We're evaluating that," the chairmen said, "and we're going to communicate with the other chairs and look at the response."

When asked about the IRS knocking on Matt Taibbi's door while he was testifying in Congress, he responded, "I don't think it's an accident that the same week we learned that a district attorney has got a left-wing district attorney, a Soros-backed district attorney... to go after the former president of the United States."

Jordan used the occasion to criticize the charges brought against Trump and level misdeeds against Bragg.

Overall, he said, "it's ludicrous since Mr. Bragg has admitted that he used federal funds." As you pointed out, the first debate in the primary elections for the most important seat is four months away. "We know that this evolved out of the federal — the special counsel inquiry, which is a Federal Act, and most significantly, includes a federal election."

By pointing out that Bragg used federal funds, Jordan countered arguments that Congress shouldn't get involved in local prosecution choices.

They keep emphasizing that you shouldn't get involved because, you know, the local prosecutor makes the prosecution decision, he added. "And we're saying, well, look, you use federal funds. You can see that in your response. To the letter that myself, Mr. Style, and Mr. Comer sent to you a few days ago, you can see that you've, we think this grew out of the special counsel investigation, as I said earlier, which is obviously a federal statute," Comer continued.

In response to criticism from congressional Republicans, Bragg has accused them of attempting to intimidate and obstruct the probe.
