Bragg fights GOP effort to force his testimony on Trump probe

March 23, 2023

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) called demands from House GOP leaders to force his testimony an “unlawful incursion” on his ongoing probe into former President Trump’s role in a hush money scandal. The confidentiality of such processes, Bragg said, is designed to protect all involved, including potential defendants such as Trump. Bragg pushed back on arguments that such a prosecution would be a political matter. Bragg is no longer the only official sought by the GOP in connection with the Trump probe. In a late Wednesday letter, Jordan requested testimony from two prosecutors who resigned from the New York case over disagreements with Bragg.
