In his attempts to pursue former President Donald Trump with various campaign finance offenses, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is facing an uphill struggle. The house committee is questioning Bragg.
Despite Trump’s “successful” arraignment last week, Bragg still has a lot of problems to address to establish that the 34 felonious allegations brought against Trump are valid.
First, the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice already decided that there wasn’t a case worth pursuing against Trump and that the fabricated allegations were baseless and politically motivated.
According to James Trainor, former FEC chairman, Bragg was trying to make something fit. Trainor stated there is no violation of campaign finance laws or reporting a violation of any kind.
Second, and possibly more concerning for Bragg, is a trio of Republican legislators with whom his office is now at odds. That trifecta comprises Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, head of the House Judiciary Committee, Kentucky Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and Wisconsin Rep. Bryan Steil. They have been a continuous thorn in Bragg’s side.
Those three have sought transparency and answers from Bragg’s office, but their requests have mostly gone unheeded.
Perhaps not on absolutely deaf ears because Bragg’s office wrote the three congressmen a fairly hostile letter in response to the GOP probes, urging them to back off and calm down. The GOP trio threatened a subpoena in response to the letter from Bragg’s office.
Bragg’s answer to the GOP leaders was to pursue legal action against them, filing a complaint directly against Jordan on Tuesday. An order to Show Cause, as well as a temporary restraining order, were requested by Bragg.
Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil, in a letter acquired by SDNY Blog, shattered Bragg’s expectations by flatly refusing both the restraining order and the show-cause order.
The Judge stated in her message that the Court declined to enter both the Temporary Restraining Order and Order to Show Cause which Alvin Bragg’s office had requested.
Mike Davis, a former court clerk, legal expert, and creator of the Article III Project, took to Twitter to explain why this little letter would be so terrible for Bragg. Davis described Alvin Bragg’s frivolous legal argument: Congress is meddling in Bragg’s misappropriation of federal monies and violation of Federal Law to political influence in the next presidential election.
In a statement to Breitbart News, Davis slammed Bragg’s educational credentials. He said that the Soros-funded Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s complaint against House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is so frivolous he couldn’t even get a temporary restraining order. Davis told the site that Harvard Law should require Bragg to return his law degree.
Meanwhile, Donald J. Trump, the former president who, through no fault of his own, has found himself at the center of this controversy, appears unfazed by the indictment. Bragg’s star witness is Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen. The former president recently filed a lawsuit against Cohen, seeking over $500 million in damages.
