Breaking: Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg Gets Accused Of Concealing Crucial Evidence And Could Face Charges Himself

You may have seen calls for Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s arrest by prominent Republicans yesterday and wondered how the tables turned.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, tweeted that it was time to arrest Bragg for allegedly hiding exculpatory evidence in the case against former President Trump.
She also called out Bragg for “trying to incite civil unrest.” The congresswoman believes the DA is the one who needs to be held accountable.
Conservative commentator Amuse tweeted, “The Manhattan DA canceled his planned arrest of President Trump when his final grand jury witness told the jurors that Bragg was hiding hundreds of pages of exculpatory evidence from them. Bragg is at risk of being charged with prosecutorial misconduct.”
Michael Cohen’s former attorney and key witness for the prosecutor, Bob Costello, told the media that the prosecution cherrypicked emails to show to the jury, leaving out hundreds of others that show Cohen to be a “habitual liar.”
Costello called out the unfairness of it all proving, once again, that this is a political prosecution.
In the meantime, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio expanded the investigation into the Manhattan DA’s handling of the case against Trump.
Jordan sent letters to two former NY attorneys, Mark Pomerantz, former New York County Special Assistant District Attorney, and Carey Dunne, former Manhattan Special Assistant District Attorney.
Pomerantz and Dunne resigned their positions in February of last year over disagreements with Bragg because of his reluctance to go after Trump.
“Last year, you resigned from the office over Bragg’s initial reluctance to move forward with charges, shaming Bragg in your resignation letter — which was subsequently leaked — into bringing charges,” Jordan wrote to Pomerantz. “Based on your unique role in this matter, and your subsequent public statements prejudicing the impartiality of any prosecution, we request your cooperation with our oversight of this politically motivated prosecutorial decision.”
Jordan wrote to Dunne reminding him that he resigned because of “Bragg’s initial reluctance to move forward with charges in 2022,” and that Bragg “is now attempting to ‘shoehorn’ the same case with identical facts into a new prosecution.”
Pomerantz’s letter was published in the New York Times, in part reading,
“I believe that your decision not to prosecute Donald Trump now, and on the existing record, is misguided and completely contrary to the public interest. I therefore cannot continue in my current position.”
“I fear that your decision means that Mr. Trump will not be held fully accountable for his crimes. I have worked too hard as a lawyer, and for too long, now to become a passive participant in what I believe to be a grave failure of justice,” he added. “I therefore resign from my position as a Special Assistant District Attorney, effective immediately.”
Jordan wrote to both Pomerantz and Dunne, who work together at a law firm, “It now appears that your efforts to shame Bragg have worked as he is reportedly resurrecting a so-called ‘zombie’ case against President Trump using a tenuous and untested legal theory.”
“Your actions, both as a special prosecutor and since leaving the District Attorney’s office, cast serious doubt on the administration of fair and impartial justice in this matter,” he later added in both letters.
Who will ultimately end up facing charges? Donald Trump or Alvin Bragg or neither? The drama continues…
