glenn kirschnerFormer US Army Attorney and Legal Analyst for msnbcHe maintained that the Rep. jim jordan (R-Ohio) violated a New York State law following attempts by the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to investigate the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for his accusation of donald trump.
Jordan, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, subpoenaed Mark Pomerantz, a former New York prosecutor who previously worked on the Trump case for the Manhattan district attorney’s office, on Thursday.
Jordan, in his letter to Pomerantz, described that Congress “has a specific and manifestly important interest in avoiding politically motivated prosecutions” of Trump, including one of Bragg.
Kirschner criticized Jordan’s efforts on a recent episode of his “Justice Matters” podcast. and referred to him as a “man who intentionally violated a congressional subpoena” which has begun issuing congressional subpoenas.
“Wow, that’s a mockery of the Judiciary Committee and Congress and the rule of law,” Kirschner said.
Kirschner then pointed to a part of Bragg’s response to Pomerantz’s subpoena where the Manhattan district attorney called for efforts “to undermine an active investigation and ongoing criminal case in New York.”
Kirschner said Jordan violated a New York State law that convicts someone of “obstructing government administration to the second degree (if they willfully prevent or attempt to prevent) a public official from performing an official function by means of intimidation, physical force, or interference. ”
“That is precisely what Jim Jordan has done and is doing … so the only question, folks, is what DA Bragg is willing to do about it,” said Kirschner, who claimed that Jordan also violated the Tenth Amendment.
He then added: “He should be locked up because, you know, justice matters.”
