Manhattan DA’s office accuses House GOP accused of ‘unlawful political interference’

Manhattan DA’s office responded to the House GOP’s request which demanded documents and testimony into the case against former President Donald J Trump as “unlawful political interference” in an ongoing criminal case.

Leslie B. Dubeck, the general counsel for Alvin Bragg’s office, sent a letter Friday to three top House Republican chairmen saying the GOP claims are “baseless and inflammatory allegations that our investigation is politically motivated.”

“The Committees’ attempted interference with an ongoing state criminal investigation — and now prosecution — is an unprecedented and illegal incursion on New York’s sovereign interests,” said Dubeck.

Moreover, since the Soros funded DA, Alvin Bragg, has taken office he has downgraded 52% of felonies in NYC to misdemeanors. Murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, and grand larceny has raised 23.5% since last year in New York City and there are no signs showing that it will slow down.

In the unprecedented case against former President Donald J Trump, Bragg has revived a 7 year old charge and elevated it to a felony in order to indict him. This is the first time in the history of the United States that a former President has ever been indicted.

Furthermore, Bragg is indicting former President Donald J Trump on his alleged involvement in hush money payments to former pornstar Stormy Daniels and the falsification of business records to keep the payments concealed.

Bragg’s office received a letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and the other top Republicans that demanded Bragg to hand over any documents involved in President Trump’s investigation and that Bragg testify before congress, according to Fox News.

“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,” Bragg’s office responded.

The letter continued to say,

“Even worse, based on your reportedly close collaboration with Mr. Trump in attacking this Office and the grand jury process, it appears that you are acting more like criminal defense counsel trying to gather evidence for a client than a legislative body seeking to achieve a legitimate legislative objective…

Finally, as you are no doubt aware, former President Trump has directed harsh invective against District Attorney Bragg and threatened on social media that his arrest or indictment in New York may unleash ‘death & destruction.’ As Committee Chairmen, you could use the stature of your office to denounce these attacks and urge respect for the fairness of our justice system and for the work of the impartial grand jury 

Instead, you and many of your colleagues have chosen to collaborate with Mr. Trump’s efforts to vilify and denigrate the integrity of elected state prosecutors and trial judges and made unfounded allegations that the Office’s investigation, conducted via an independent grand jury of average citizens serving New York State, is politically motivated.”

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
