Manhattan DA Refuses to Appear Before Congress 

Offers to meet and confer regarding the legislative purpose of the inquiry.

The District Attorney for Manhattan Alvin Bragg responded to a letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio, and others, to provide testimony, documentation, and communications from his office relative to the grand jury investigation into allegations made against former President Donald Trump. 

In denying their request to appear, a letter from Bragg’s office said the House request is an “unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution.” The letter listed four ways in which the request for testimony was not a “legitimate basis for congressional inquiry.” 

The letter did, however, say they would be willing to “meet and confer to understand whether the Committee has any legitimate legislative purpose in the requested materials that could be accommodated without impeding [New York’s sovereign police power].” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Congressman Jordan as he heads the House Judiciary Committee.
  • For District Attorney Bragg to apply the law impartially as the investigation into former President Trump is made.
  • For God’s purposes to be accomplished in the United States.
