There is a nonstop procession of bad news for Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
The setbacks are piling up.
And now a judge just smacked down Alvin Bragg on one big decision involving Donald Trump.
The House Judiciary Committee is investigating Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg using federal funds to run his fishing expedition against Donald Trump and for interfering in the 2024 presidential election.
Part of the investigation involved the committee subpoenaing former Manhattan District Attorney’s Office prosecutor Mark Pomerantz.
Pomerantz resigned from the district attorney’s office after Bragg refused to charge Donald Trump with financial crimes.
Pomerantz then wrote a book titled “People vs. Donald Trump,” where Pomerantz vented his spleen about how Trump is a criminal and guilty of multiple felonies.
Bragg charged Trump with made-up felonies following Pomerantz’s resignation.
Republicans want to talk to Pomerantz — who is now a private citizen — about the political bias involved in Bragg’s investigation into Donald Trump.
Committee members may also want to ask about the view inside the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office of Michael Cohen — who made the nondisclosure payment to Stormy Daniels that Bragg used as the basis for his sham charges against Trump — who is a convicted felon and who admitted he lied to Congress and others on behalf of Donald Trump.
If Bragg puts Cohen on the stand knowing Cohen could make false testimony, Bragg could face disbarment.
Bragg — and Pomerantz — filed motions to quash the subpoena and block Pomerantz from testifying.
U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil slapped down Bragg and tossed his motion.
“It is not the role of the federal judiciary to dictate what legislation Congress may consider or how it should conduct its deliberations in that connection,” Vyskocil wrote. “Mr. Pomerantz must appear for the congressional deposition. No one is above the law.”
Vyskocil wrote that Bragg is “entitled to unilaterally narrow the universe of acceptable inquiry to the information and mental impressions that Pomerantz decided to sell in the pages of his book.”
But Vyskocil dismissed Bragg’s arguments noting that Pomerantz wrote a book about jailing Trump and happily appeared on every media outlet that would have him to discuss the Trump investigation.
“Pomerantz is in this situation because he decided to inject himself into the public debate by authoring a book that he has described as ‘appropriate and in the public interest,’” Judge Vyskocil added.
An appeals court hit the pause button on the subpoena to give Bragg a chance to appeal, but there is little chance his absurd arguments will find a more receptive audience at the circuit court or even the Supreme Court.
