As of Friday morning, the indictment remains sealed, with specific charges against Trump unknown. On his Truth Social platform, Trump has kept up a steady stream of attacks on Bragg in all-caps-heavy posts and condemned the indictment…
Jordan’s demands of Bragg’s office have drawn sharp criticism from Democrats, who pointed out that the right-wing lawmaker had ignored a subpoena from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. The Jan. 6 committee later voted to refer Jordan and other GOP lawmakers who had also defied its subpoenas to the House Ethics Committee.

The wait is OVER?
The ball is rolling?
In some ways, it was the turn of events Democratic voters had dreamed of and some of the party’s lawmakers had long demanded: After years of telling lies, shattering norms, inciting a riot at the Capitol and being impeached twice, Donald J.
