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.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
