Bragg: Congress Concerns Over 'Political' Prosecution of Trump 'baseless'

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, the far leftist who wants to take a case previously tossed out by multiple investigations and turn it into a felony against President Trump, has issued a statement claiming he is working "fairly" to apply the law.

Bragg reportedly has been developing a case against Trump over a lawyer's payment to a porn star – many years ago, purportedly as hush money to keep details of an affair with Trump secret.

Federal prosecutors and election investigators, during the 2016 race, both dismissed the claims as not prosecutable.

Those circumstances prompted members of the U.S. House to call for Bragg to explain to them what is going on with the apparently "political" prosecution, as Democrats have been working for years to find some allegations with which to prevent Trump from seeking the 2024 presidential nomination.

Their earlier work included ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's multiple failed attempts to impeach him and remove him from office. Further, they keep insisting Jan. 6, 2021, events at the Capitol were an "insurrection" as they want to tar Trump with that label.

Now Fox News says Bragg's office has released a statement responding to Congress.

"In every prosecution, we follow the law without fear or favor to uncover the truth. Our skilled, honest, and dedicated lawyers remain hard at work," it added.

The statement didn't explain what accusations are "baseless," except that that is how Trump has described Bragg's allegations, which reportedly could result in an indictment as early as this week.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and several other committee chiefs in the House sent Bragg a letter Monday insisting he testifies before Congress and turn over documents.

WND has reported Bragg is one of many "Soros DAs," prosecutors whose election campaigns have been bankrolled by far-left billionaire George Soros, and whose tenures in the office are characterized by being radically soft on actual crime while often prosecuting innocent conservatives.

Bragg got in 2021 $1.1 million from Soros’ Color of Change PAC for his campaign, enabling him to win the election as the district attorney of Manhattan.

His record in office has been scandalous. After only three days in office, Bragg declared that his office would not pursue prison time for crimes involving drug dealing, burglary, and armed robbery. He also indicated that he would not prosecute low-level offenses at all, such as resisting arrest, prostitution, and marijuana-related misdemeanors. That announcement prompted at least nine Manhattan prosecutors to quit.
