Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his supporters have publicly justified prosecuting President Trump with scant evidence and taking up a case that the federal government wouldn’t touch because ‘no one is above the law’.

Now, he is refusing to comply with a Congressional inquiry in to the coming indictment of Trump.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Representative Jim Jordan (R-Oh.) as well as other chairmen requested documents and testimony from Bragg and other members of the Manhattan District Attorney’s office prior to the indictment.

Bragg refused to comply with the request because he claims that it infringes on the independence of ‘state law enforcement’.

Jordan’s inquiry focused on the extent to which the Manhattan District Attorney’s office was in contact with the Department of Justice, however, and if they received federal funds to conduct the investigation.

Legal experts from across the aisle have repeatedly expressed concern that Bragg’s investigation relies on shaky evidence and testimony from biased parties and will not result in a conviction or will be overturned on appeal.

Bragg denied providing testimony and documenters to top House Republican leadership due to “an unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution,” he replied to Republicans.

On Monday, Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Oversight Committee chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY), and Administration Committee chairman Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI) demanded Bragg comply with the committee’s request for documents and testimony in anticipation of the possible indictment.

The anticipation was generated after Trump announced Saturday that he expected to be arrested in the coming days based on “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is investigating Trump’s alleged role in hush money paid to Stormy Daniels.

“The Letter only came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested the next day and his lawyers reportedly urged you to intervene,” Bragg’s replied to Republicans. “Neither fact is a legitimate basis for congressional inquiry.”

“[T]he District Attorney is obliged by the federal and state constitutions to protect the independence of state law enforcement functions from federal interference,” he added.
