Contrary to media reports?
The House Judiciary Chair has N OT actually supoenad Manhattan DA Bragg….
The summons is for Mark Pomerantz, who worked fpr Bragg and left the DA’s office wrting a book about the Trump case….
This IS Congress attempting to investigate a local state investigation while a criminal case is ongoing….
“Based on your unique role as a special assistant district attorney leading the investigation into President Trump’s finances, you are uniquely situated to provide information that is relevant and necessary to inform the Committee’s oversight and potential legislative reforms,” Jordan wrote in a separate letter to Pomerantz that accompanied the subpoena.
It’s unusual for Congress to subpoena a line prosecutor — and Jordan, in his Thursday letter, alleges that Bragg’s office directed Pomerantz not to cooperate with oversight. Bragg’s office and Pomerantz didn’t immediately respond to questions about that claim.
But Pomerantz has also written a book where he included details of the New York investigation into Trump and the Trump organization that could make the subpoena harder to resist.
The Jan. 6 select committee used a similar argument against former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows’ resistance to a summons, arguing he waived any potential privileges by releasing a book that describes some of his interactions with the former president. Meadows was later held in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify, though the Justice Department declined to prosecute him.
However, another Jan. 6 committee witness who wrote a book before refusing to appear — Peter Navarro — is currently being prosecuted for contempt of Congress….
I wonder if Bragg could rehire Pomerantz,….Shileding him the subpoena ?
Jordan refused to honor a House supoena connected to the Jan.6 House probe……
