Donald Trump indicted: Bragg tells House GOP to cease ‘unlawful political interference’ in case

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office slammed House Republicans for demanding information on its case against former President Donald Trump in a new letter Friday.

The letter, reviewed by the Washington Examiner, was sent by Bragg’s general counsel Leslie Dubeck to the three House committee chairmen who have insisted that Bragg’s office provide testimony on its investigation into the former president, which resulted in charges filed Thursday.

“Like any other defendant, Mr. Trump is entitled to challenge these charges in court and avail himself of all processes and protections that New York State’s robust criminal procedure affords,” Dubeck wrote. “What neither Mr. Trump nor Congress may do is interfere with the ordinary course of proceedings in New York State.”

The letter was sent to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), and House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil (R-WI), who have demanded Bragg’s testimony on the case.

Bragg told the three Republicans in a separate letter last week providing legal arguments for why he would be unable to provide testimony about the inquiry, including that his investigation’s findings are confidential under state law.

The lawmakers have thus far rejected those assertions.
