Manhattan DA rejects GOP demand for info on Trump case


The district attorney for Manhattan, New York has made clear. He will not be sharing documents surrounding the hush money investigation into Donald Trump with members of Congress. House Republicans had sought documents and testimony about the case. Calling the grand jury investigation into Donald Trump, quote, an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority. In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, the general counsel for Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg slammed the congressional request as an unlawful incursion into New York's sovereignty, adding that Donald Trump's lawyers reportedly urged three House committee chairman to intervene after Trump created a false expectation. He was going to be arrested this week and says that is not a legitimate basis for a congressional inquiry. The 5 page response from Bragg's office marks a public acknowledgment, a grand jury is currently investigating Trump, although there appears to be a pause this week in his case. I'm Jackie Quinn
