representative. Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, sent letters to two former prosecutors in the Manhattan attorney general’s office seeking their testimony in his investigation into whether the financial investigation into former President Donald Trump’s silence was politically motivated.
Messages were sent wednesday to Mark Pomerantz And Carrie DunnThe two attorneys general who were leading Attorney General Alvin Bragg’s investigation into the Trump Organization have resigned over disagreements with Bragg’s handling of the case.
The Ohio Republican wrote that Bragg “is said to be about to engage in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial power: the impeachment of a former President of the United States and current declared candidate for that office.”
Jordan noted that Pomerants and Dunne resigned from their positions in February 2022 “because of Bragg’s initial reluctance to move forward with charges.”
In his letter to Pomerants, Jordan said the former attorney general “disgraced” him in his resignation letter, which was leaked to the media, for “drawing charges” against Trump.
Because of their inside knowledge of the case, Jordan requested Pomerants and Dunn’s cooperation with his committee’s oversight of “this politically motivated prosecution decision.”
The letter seeks documents and communications from the couple dating back to January 1, 2017, between the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, the Department of Justice, and any other law enforcement agencies.
Jordan focused on comments Pomerantis made in his book, published in February, “criticizing Bragg for not vigorously prosecuting President Trump, exposing the office’s inner deliberations about the investigation and your personal hostility toward President Trump.”
Jordan continued, “Your efforts to embarrass Prague now appear to have succeeded because he is said to be reviving the so-called ‘zombie’ case against President Trump using fragile and untested legal theory.”
On Monday, Jordan joined Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, to demand Bragg turn over documents and testify about the allegation against Trump.
“If these reports are accurate, your actions will erode confidence in the fair administration of justice and invariably interfere with the course of the 2024 presidential election,” Jordan and Kummer wrote in the letter.
After reports in the media last week suggested Trump would be charged by the attorney general, the former president wrote on his messaging platform Truth Social on Saturday that he would be arrested on Tuesday.
“The far-away leading Republican candidate and former President of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday next week. Protest, give back our home!” he wrote to his 5 million followers in a message in block letters.
He is facing possible indictment over the payment of $130,000 in hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
Trump’s former attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen paid Daniels to prevent her from revealing a sexual encounter she allegedly had with Trump a decade ago.
Trump denied the issue and the payment.
Cohen pleaded guilty in November 2018 to making the payment and was sentenced to three years in federal prison.
Tuesday came and went without impeaching Trump.
The newspaper reported that the grand jury investigating Trump did not meet on Wednesday as scheduled because an anonymous witness was unable to appear.
The jury is expected to meet again on Thursday.
