Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Rep. Jim Jordan R-Ohio, claiming that Jordan is interfering in his investigation and waging intimidating tactics over Bragg’s indictment of President Donald J Trump, the lawsuit states.
President Trump was indicted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records that were related to hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels. Bragg claims that President Trump was hiding other crimes within the falsification of his business records but has yet to provide any evidence to the public on what crimes were committed.
Jordan, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee is investigating claims that the bureaucracy has been weaponized against Trump and the GOP. During the House Weaponization Subcommittee hearing Jordan, R-Ohio, has had numerous witnesses testify about the Biden administration’s alleged collusion with Big Tech companies that have violated First Amendment rights. Jordan, who has spoken to numerous FBI whistleblowers, allege that the bureau urged social media companies, to include Twitter and Facebook, not to distribute stories referencing Biden’s son, Hunter Biden’s laptop that contained a plethora of information on the Biden family’s business dealings, as well as exposed Hunter’s penchant for drugs and prostitutes. The New York Post was first banned on Twitter for Miranda Devine’s excellent investigative journalism exposed in her best selling book ‘Laptop From Hell.’
As for Bragg’s charges, Trump pleaded ‘not guilty’ to all counts. Bragg has been criticized by both Democrats and Republicans for bringing these very weak charges against the former President.
Even staunch Trump critic former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blasted Bragg telling John Catsimatidis on WABC 770s radio, “you have a cynical public, they don’t believe anyone and when you start to see these prosecutors bring political cases, it just affirms everybody’s cynicism…It’s a coincidence that Bragg goes after Trump and Tish James goes after Trump and Georgia goes after Trump. That’s all a coincidence,” Cuomo scoffed.
Cuomo was referring to James’ investigation of the Trump Organization, as well as the “District Attorney of Fulton County’s probe into Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election,” as reported by the New York Post.
Bragg’s lawsuit states, “in response to an unprecedentedly brazen and unconstitutional attack by members of Congress on an ongoing New York State criminal prosecution and investigation of former President Donald J. Trump.”
A statement from DA Bragg in the lawsuit states, “Chairman Jordan’s subpoena is an unconstitutional attempt to undermine an ongoing New York felony criminal prosecution and investigation,” Bragg continued, “As our complaint details, this is an unprecedented, illegitimate interference by Congress that lacks any legal merit and defies basic principles of federalism.”
Jordan responded to Bragg’s lawsuit on twitter.
“First, they indict a president for no crime,” he said. “Then, they sue to block congressional oversight when we ask questions about the federal funds they say they used to do it.”

On Monday, the house judiciary committee will be holding a hearing in Manhattan on the crime in New York. The hearing will be on what the committee calls the Soros funded DA’s “pro-crime, anti-victim” policies.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
