ORLANDO, FL — House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) tells Breitbart News EXCLUSIVELY that she believes Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg should be called to testify before the US Congress as soon as possible under oath to explain his decision to proceed. What she described as “political” charges against former President Donald Trump.
“I think we should listen to Alvin Bragg testifying before Congress, under oath, about his vision and the fact that this is very much political, the fact that the federal courts haven’t pursued this, and the fact that the Department of Justice sanctioned this,” Stefanik said in an interview in House Republican retreat. “I also want to hear his answers about funding from George Soros. I want to hear his answers about the crime crisis in New York. So, at the same time that you said you made him reduce felonies to misdemeanours, you have something that goes beyond the statute of limitations and it’s a political stalking. So I absolutely want to. To hear Alvin Bragg testify before Congress.”
Stefanik, a member of the House Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on Arms, organizes the House GOP retreat here along with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and the rest of the House GOP leadership. Her comments came during an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Monday morning, and represent a swift escalation from House Republicans in response to Trump’s announcement over the weekend that Bragg would be indicted this week over a seven-year-old case that many have been accused of. His predecessors passed away like federal officials.
McCarthy ordered relevant congressional agencies to begin investigating possible federal dollars or assistance in Prague’s highly politicized efforts, the beginnings of which were evident Monday as a message from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. James Comer (R-Kentucky), and House Management Committee Chairman Brian Steele (R-W), asked Bragg to produce communications and documents related to the matter to their committees.

“This is an example of the federal government arming against the Democrats’ political opponents,” Stefanik told Breitbart News. “As a native New Yorker, and being a native New Yorker, Alvin Bragg is as extreme and left-wing as they come. Over a million dollars funded by George Soros. This was a case that was considered a zombie case. Meanwhile, you have Alvin Bragg basically bidding on Joe Biden and the Democratic Party because they can’t beat President Trump at the ballot box.What’s very frustrating is that we think about New York State where we have a crime crisis, literally the epicenter of the crime crisis is because of Alvin Bragg’s soft policies On crime.So at the same time you have this DA that reduces felonies to misdemeanors, you have him prosecute a non-case just for the sake of political revenge.Our only goal from a congressional standpoint is that there needs to be strong oversight and accountability and the way we do that is through the Judiciary Committee In the House of Representatives, the Select Committee on Armaments. We will pursue any federal funding and any contacts between the Department of Justice and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office — making sure that we expose every contact in terms of how politicized this effort to go after President Trump. I see this on. It’s another chapter in a deeply unsavory, un-American story about Democrats going after President Trump back to the 2016 Russia hoax, back to faulty FISA enforcement, and back to whether Clapper and Comey lie to Congress. It’s not just President Trump who’s being hounded. They are now going after the parents and calling them domestic terrorists. That’s part of just arming the federal government against people because they have different political beliefs and because they’re Republicans.”
It proves America needs Trump back in the White House “now more than ever,” said Stefanik, Trump’s biggest supporter in the House and the only member of the House GOP leadership to endorse Trump so far in 2024.
“I think we need Trump now more than ever because he is uniquely able to clean up the swamp,” Stefanik said. “This is the depths of the quagmire and we’re talking about the quagmire — political appointees and bureaucrats and Democrats are going after Republicans and they are going after innocent Republicans because they have different political beliefs. It’s really the weaponization of the federal government. What I’ve found in my own microcosm in my own congressional district is the Democrats’ most difficult attack, both Whether it’s through lies in the mainstream media or whether he’s raising millions of dollars from far-left donors, the stronger we get because people rally in support because they want to make sure their representatives work for them. The American people will rally behind President Trump to show their strong support. I think Also that we will be more organized in 2024 because people have not only seen the fiasco of Joe Biden but have seen how a government that is slipping away day by day and becoming more and more like a third-world state can be weaponized against innocent Americans. We need to save our country.”
