Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) claimed that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg sued him to dam congressional oversight, which is unfaithful.
Jordan responded to Bragg’s lawsuit by tweeting:
First, they indict a president for no crime.
Then, they sue to dam congressional oversight once we ask questions concerning the federal funds they are saying they used to do it.

Jordan’s pretext of Bragg’s workplace getting federal funding isn’t holding up properly. Rep. Jordan isn’t investigating using federal funds as a result of he’s trying to name as witnesses individuals who work or who’ve labored on prosecutions within the District Legal professional’s workplace.
If the investigation have been about budgeting and spending, Jordan would need to converse to the members of the DA’s workplace who deal with budgetary issues, not folks with intimate information of the case in opposition to Donald Trump.
Plainly Jordan by no means anticipated to be sued by Bragg.
The Ohio congressman apparently thought Bragg would sit again and permit him to intrude in his prison case.
Republicans, together with Trump, have been bullying investigators and shutting down investigations.
Alvin Bragg is sending the message that Jim Jordan isn’t going to get away with the identical previous ways, and the loyal Trump ally doesn’t know how you can deal with it.
