Alvin Bragg Will Testify In Court In May

Alvin Bragg

The Republican-led committee headed by Rep. Jim Jordan was able to subpoena evidence concerning the criminal prosecution of former President Donald Trump, and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg decided Friday night to drop his appeal of that decision.

The two sides reached an understanding that permits Mark Pomerantz, a former prosecutor, to be deposed next month with an official from the district attorney’s office in attendance. Pomerantz was subpoenaed earlier this month by House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan as part of his investigation into the prosecution of former President Donald Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Alvin Bragg Agreeded To Testify

“Our successful stay of this subpoena prevented the immediate deposition and gave us the time we needed to negotiate an agreement with the House Judiciary Committee that protects the District Attorney’s privileges and interests.” “We are pleased with this resolution, which ensures that any questioning of our former employee will take place in the presence of our General Counsel and within a reasonable, agreed-upon timeframe,” a Manhattan district attorney’s representative said. 

Jordan’s spokeswoman also verified the resolution. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office withdrew its appeal in the case of Bragg v. Jordan this evening. We anticipate Mr. Pomerantz’s participation in the deposition scheduled for May 12,” said Russell Dye, a representative for Jordan.

Less than two hours before it was scheduled to start, a federal appeals court on Thursday imposed an administrative stay temporarily preventing Pomerantz’s deposition by the House Judiciary Committee.

A federal court on Wednesday rejected Bragg’s attempt to quash the congressional subpoena, giving Jordan the victory. Bragg had tried to do so.
