In a stunning turn of events, the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee is seriously thinking about slapping subpoenas on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and two of his former prosecutor pals, Carey R. Dunne and Mark F. Pomerantz. Their resignations last year have raised quite a few eyebrows about whether they had any faith in the case against good ol’ former President Donald Trump.
Now, according to The New York Times, Bragg was having some second thoughts about going after Trump, and that’s when Dunne and Pomerantz decided to pack up and leave. This whole thing smells fishy, doesn’t it? A bunch of Republicans and even some Democrats think that the charges against Trump have more to do with politics than actual law-breaking.
Bragg managed to indict Trump a year later, despite hitting some roadblocks along the way. Trump, of course, pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records in a Manhattan court. But that hasn’t stopped House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan from jumping to Trump’s defense, waving a big ol’ flag that says “defund government agencies that mess with elections.”
In a fiery Fox News interview, Jordan made it clear that he thinks agencies like the DOJ and FBI need to keep their noses out of the election process. He listed all the times they’ve targeted Trump, from spying on his 2016 campaign to hiding the Hunter Biden story in 2020.
Jordan stressed that this whole thing isn’t just about Trump; it’s about every American who’s ever been targeted for standing up to the left’s agenda. He pointed to examples like the IRS paying Matt Taibbi a visit while he was testifying in Congress, and the FTC getting all up in Twitter’s business, asking about the journalists they were chatting with.
So, what’s the bottom line here? The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee is seriously considering dragging Bragg, Dunne, and Pomerantz into the spotlight with subpoenas, all because the case against Trump seems more like a political game than a genuine pursuit of justice.
This whole fiasco just goes to show that we need government agencies to stay out of the election process and let “We, The People” decide who we want in office.
