Manhattan DA Fires Back After House Republicans Open Probe Into Trump Case | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's team sent out a defiant public message after House Republicans opened an investigation into the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump.

    Fox News reported on Tuesday a statement from a Bragg spokesperson one day after GOP lawmakers demanded records and testimony from the prosecutor who is investigating Trump over alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election cycle.

    "We will not be intimidated by attempts to undermine the justice process, nor will we let baseless accusations deter us from fairly applying the law," the spokesperson said. "In every prosecution, we follow the law without fear or favor to uncover the truth. Our skilled, honest and dedicated lawyers remain hard at work."

    A trio of House Republican committee chairmen sent a letter to Bragg on Monday announcing an investigation and demanding communications, documents, and testimony in response to reports indicating that an indictment against Trump was imminent.

    House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), and House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil (R-WI) signed onto the letter that warned of "an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority: the indictment of a former President of the United States and current declared candidate for that office."

    Trump said over the weekend he expected to be arrested on Tuesday and called on his supporters to protest. A spokesperson for the former president later said Trump received no "notification" other than "illegal leaks" to the media - likely referring to reports about law enforcement preparing for the possibility of an indictment.

    Just what a possible indictment against Trump will look like remains uncertain, but there is widespread expectation that it would center on a charge of bookkeeping fraud to cover up an alleged affair, which the former president denies happened. Trump, who announced a third campaign for the White House in November, claims Bragg's inquiry is politically motivated and denies any wrongdoing.

    Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY), who led the first of two impeachment cases against Trump, condemned his Republican colleagues for opening an investigation into Bragg's endeavor.

    "Defending Trump is not a legitimate legislative purpose for Congress to investigate a state district attorney," Goldman said in a tweet. "Congress has no jurisdiction to investigate the Manhattan DA, which receives no federal funding nor has any other federal nexus."

    Jordan issued a fiery tweet chastising Democrats for criticizing his inquiry.

    "Democrats think it's ok for them to examine and defund local police," Jordan said. "But not ok for Republicans to examine a local prosecutor in Manhattan abusing his power to take down a political opponent."

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
