Jordan Calls For Bragg, Colangelo To Testify Before House Subcommittee Following Trump Conviction

House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) announced Friday that he would demand testimony from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) and prosecutor Matthew Colangelo, who worked on former President Donald Trump’s hush money case, for a June 13 hearing on “the unprecedented political prosecution of President Trump.”

The announcement, made on the social platform X by the Judiciary’s weaponization subcommittee, comes just days after a jury found Trump guilty on all 34 counts brought by Bragg.

Bragg’s office has not yet responded to the request but has previously resisted Jordan’s attempts to seek cooperation, even before charges were filed. In March of last year, when Jordan first requested Bragg’s testimony, a spokesperson for Bragg’s office suggested that it was somehow Jordan who was inappropriately interfering in the justice system.

Colangelo, who delivered the opening statement in Trump’s New York trial, has also been a long-term target of Jordan’s scrutiny. The Judiciary Chair first sought documents about Colangelo’s hiring in April of last year and launched a separate effort to obtain similar documents from the Justice Department last month.

Colangelo has experience handling legal matters related to Trump both prior to and after his time at the Justice Department under the Biden administration. During his tenure at the New York attorney generals office he played a role in a lawsuit, against Trumps charity in 2018 resulting in its dissolution.

With Trump’s sentencing scheduled for July 11 and his legal team suggesting an appeal of the verdict, Bragg may be hesitant to discuss the case in detail. The hearing’s timing, just months before the 2024 presidential election, illustrates perfectly how far the Biden regime is willing to go to maintain its power over the nation.
