Jim Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, made the announcement on Fox News on Monday morning, calling it a "unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority," and requesting Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg testify before Congress about the possibility of charging former President Donald Trump with hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.

James Comer, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, also signed the letter Jordan sent to Bragg's office Monday morning requesting his testimony, according to Fox News Digital (R-KY).


The letter criticized the prospect of a Trump indictment by Bragg, arguing that such a move "would weaken confidence in the fair administration of justice and irrevocably intervene in the court of the 2024 presidential election."

Jordan continued, "We expect that you will testify about what plainly looks to be a politically driven prosecutorial judgment in light of the serious repercussions of your actions.

On Monday morning, Jordan made an appearance on Fox News' The Faulkner Focus to discuss the additional demands he has made of Bragg, including requesting documents related to the investigation into Trump and stating that the indictment is only moving forward now that Trump has declared his intention to run for president in 2024.

Jordan said that Bragg's investigation amounts to "simply a stupid case that they are bringing" before Harris Faulkner. I believe the citizens of this nation are aware of how absurd it is. We'd want to speak with Mr. Bragg. We are requesting his correspondence with the federal authorities. He is being invited inside to give testimony. We need a response by Thursday this week.

Jordan questioned Faulkner as to why Congress would become involved, asking what would happen if Alvin Bragg or someone else working for him utilized federal funds to investigate Trump.

"Yeah, we're concerned about it. Because, as you may recall, the Justice Department did not pursue this case, we are interested in learning what sort of conversations there may have been between and. They wouldn't carry it out. Before Mr. Bragg, no one was going to take this action. This worries me a lot, in my opinion," Jordan said.
