Prosecutor’s office says former president led Republicans in Congress to interfere with investigation
New York.- The Manhattan district attorney’s office claimed Thursday that Donald Trump created a false expectation of his arrest and led Republicans in Congress to interfere with the office’s investigation of the former president.
“Your letter … is an unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution. The letter only came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested and, according to reports, his lawyers urged him to intervene,” District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office said of the letter written by three Republicans in the House of Representatives.
The Republicans’ letter demands to provide communications, documents and testimony about the investigation into Trump over a $130,000 payment to a porn star during his 2016 campaign.
“The requests in the letter are an illegal incursion on New York’s sovereignty,” Manhattan District Attorney General Counsel Leslie Dubeck wrote to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight panel Chairman James Comer, and House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil.
Meanwhile, the special grand jury hearing evidence on Trump meets on Thursdays, but typically does not hear evidence on the Trump case that day, according to people with knowledge, making it unlikely that an indictment will be handed down this week.
