Jordan Demands Bragg, Colangelo Testify Before House Subcommittee After Trump Conviction

House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) is calling for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and prosecutor Matthew Colangelo to testify before the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government on June 13, following President Donald Trump’s historic criminal conviction in New York.

Jordan, who has characterized the trial as a “kangaroo court,” wrote to Bragg and Colangelo on Friday requesting their appearance. The move underscores how Trump’s Republican allies in Congress plan to use their narrow House majority to push the narrative that Bragg’s prosecution was politically motivated ahead of the November election.

If Bragg and Colangelo decide to testify they will be questioned by supporters of Trump such as Rep. Matt Gaetz, from Florida and House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik from New York. Jordan has been openly critical of the trial expressing his views on Thursday “The Manhattan courts proceedings highlight the dangers of politicizing our justice system.”

Bragg, however, has defended the trial and its outcome, telling reporters, “While this defendant may be unlike any other in American history, we arrived at this trial, and ultimately today at this verdict, in the same manner as every other case that comes through the courtroom doors.”

The high-profile testimony, should it occur, would further spotlight the ongoing political battle surrounding Trump’s legal troubles and the efforts by his allies to discredit the proceedings. The hearing’s timing, just months before the 2024 presidential election, underscores the potential political implications of the conviction and its aftermath.

As President Trump continues to face Democrat persecution via sustained lawfare attacks, it’s vital that his allies in Congress push back against an out-of-control federal government led by a Biden regime desperate to remain in power as its poll numbers continue to slide.
