The House Judiciary Committee is reported “seriously weighing” issuing subpoenas for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and two prosecutors who resigned from his team after former President Donald Trump was indicted and arraigned.
This move comes after the two prosecutors on Bragg’s team resigned last year when it appeared that Bragg was not going to indict the former president.
The resignations came in February 2022 during a month-long freeze in presenting evidence to a grand jury, and some believe it suggests a lack of confidence in the case by District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
Bragg’s case against Trump is facing several roadblocks, including not being able to get executives at the Trump organization to testify against Trump. Moreover, the case is weak, and there are serious questions about the statute of limitations and whether Bragg has jurisdiction to bring the case.
The New York Times reported that without Bragg’s commitment to move forward, the prosecutors late last month postponed a plan to question at least one witness before the grand jury.
They have not questioned any witnesses in front of the grand jury for more than a month, essentially pausing their investigation into whether Trump inflated the value of his assets to obtain favorable loan terms from banks.
Pomerantz, who donated to former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign, penned a book on the investigation and his resignation, which laid out the case to charge Trump.
