Manhattan’s radical Soros-backed District Attorney Alvin Bragg suffered a huge loss in his quest to prosecute Donald Trump.
And now Bragg has been forced on defense.
U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil just slapped down Bragg’s motion to quash a House Judiciary Committee subpoena to former Manhattan prosecutor Mark Pomerantz.
Last year Pomerantz resigned from Bragg’s office and then published a book.
The book from the former prosecutor tried to make the case that former President Donald Trump is a criminal.
That’s why many legal experts believe Bragg charged Trump only after feeling heat from ideological allies like Pomerantz and other Democrats.
These leftist, activist prosecutors are hell-bent on destroying Donald Trump and his supporters.
And they will seemingly go to any lengths to make that happen.
House Republicans decided to question Pomerantz and get to the bottom of all the political pressures and biases involved in Bragg’s decision to indict Donald Trump on what amount to made up crimes.
Bragg, of course, fought this effort to get to the truth by filing a motion to bar Pomerantz from testifying before the House Committee.
But U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil rejected the appeal.
“It is not the role of the federal judiciary to dictate what legislation Congress may consider or how it should conduct its deliberations in that connection,” Vyskocil ruled.
“Mr. Pomerantz must appear for the Congressional deposition. No one is above the law.”
Bragg’s main argument was “that permitting Pomerantz to appear will undermine the pending criminal case against President Trump, intrude on the grand jury proceedings, and violate grand jury secrecy laws, among other things.”
However, Judge Vyskocil flatly rejected Bragg’s claims saying “these assertions are all without merit” and adding that “pending prosecution will move forward in the ordinary course regardless of whether the Committee deposes Pomerantz.”
One of the biggest problems Bragg faced in attempting to stop Pomerantz’s testimony is that Pomerantz is a private citizen who published a book about this case.
And even further, Pomerantz did a nationwide media tour openly touting his belief that Donald Trump is guilty.
Pomerantz filed a separate motion trying to block his testimony before the House Committee claiming he already laid out his thoughts in the matter in the book.
Judge Vyskocil laughed this claim out of court, destroying the idea that Pomerantz is “entitled to unilaterally narrow the universe of acceptable inquiry to the information and mental impressions that Pomerantz decided to sell in the pages of his book.”
Judge Vyskocil also pointed out the only reason Republicans sought Pomerantz’s testimony in the first place is because of his own actions.
“Pomerantz is in this situation because he decided to inject himself into the public debate by authoring a book that he has described as ‘appropriate and in the public interest,’” the Judge wrote.
While a federal appeals court hit pause on Pomerantz testifying to give Pomerantz time to appeal Judge Vyskocil’s ruling, Bragg’s prospects for a successful case against Trump are not looking good.
