House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan delivered a fiery message to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Monday regarding his indictment of former President Donald Trump last week.
In an interview on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures, Jordan described Bragg’s indictment as “ridiculous” and cited the DA’s admitted use of federal funds to conduct part of the investigation.
The Ohio Republican went on to say that his GOP-led committee is considering a range of options to hold Bragg accountable.
“Everything’s on the table, Maria,” Jordan told host Maria Bartiromo. “We’re going to talk with the other chairman and look at the response. We just got his letter back. We’re reviewing that. But we think that this is — here’s, I think, maybe the most important thing. We think this is bigger. This involves all of us.”
“I don’t think it’s an accident that the same week we learn that the IRS knocked on Matt Taibbi’s door while he’s testifying in Congress, that same week is when we learn a district attorney is going to — a left-wing district attorney, a Soros-backed district attorney, is going to go after the former president of the United States,” he said, referencing one of the “Twitter Files” journalists.
“This is about all of us. This is about going after anyone who opposes the left’s agenda, the establishment’s agenda. And that’s maybe the most scary thing of all,” he added.
