The case to prosecute Donald Trump just took a massive turn.
It’s bad news for Democrats.
And the gloves came off after the Manhattan district attorney crossed this red line.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil fired off a letter to Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg demanding documents and testimony from Bragg concerning the use of taxpayer money in the witch hunt to indict Trump as well as any coordination with the Biden administration on a direct assault on American democracy.

Bragg responded by telling the three Republican committee chairmen to pound sand.
And in some of the most appalling behavior members of Congress have ever encountered Bragg’s staff left the phone off the hook so committee staff could not call to check on the status of their document requests.
When a committee staffer did get through one of Bragg’s staff profanely cursed out the GOP aide.
The New York Post reports:
The Judiciary Committee staffer who called Bragg’s office at noon on Wednesday was promptly hung up on after he identified himself to a woman who answered the phone, a person familiar with the call told The Post.
When the staffer called back a second time and identified himself, a second woman bluntly told him, “Your committee has no jurisdiction over us. You’re wrong. Stop calling us with this bulls—t,” the insider said.
Bragg’s disrespect did not deter Chairmen Jordan, Comer and Steil.
Instead they sent a second demand letter over the weekend explaining why Bragg’s partisan witch hunt against the leading presidential contender from the opposing party is a matter for Congress to investigate.
“This matter does not simply involve local or state interests,” the chairmen’s letter read. “Rather, the potential criminal indictment of a former President of the United States by an elected local prosecutor of the opposing political party (and who will face the prospect of re-election) implicates substantial federal interests, particularly in a jurisdiction where trial-level judges also are popularly elected.”
In a post on Twitter the same day the chairmen’s letter went out to Bragg, Jim Jordan laid out the case for the political nature of the case against Trump.
Jordan explained the only reason Bragg wants to indict Trump on some phony campaign finance violation is because Trump declared he is running for re-election.
“The Justice Department wasn’t going to bring this case. The previous District Attorney Cy Vance wasn’t going to bring this case. And even Alvin Bragg himself, when he first gets elected, didn’t want to bring the case. What changed? President Trump on the ballot,” Jordan wrote.
Democrats are so worried about Trump winning re-election that they are deputizing their prosecutors to wage lawfare against Donald Trump.
