Bragg To Testify Before Congress

6 days ago Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has agreed to testify before a Republican-controlled congressional subcommittee, but likely not until after former President Donald Trump is sentenced in July. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan wrote Bragg in late May after Trump’s conviction in his hush money trial, accusing him of having conducted a “political prosecution.” The Ohio Republican requested Bragg's testimony at a hearing June 13. In a reply Friday, a lawyer for Bragg said he would be available to testify, but the date picked by Jordan was problematic. Trump is scheduled to be sentenced July 11.

Former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows and Trump 2020 Election Day operations director Michael Roman have pleaded not guilty in Phoenix to nine felony charges for their roles in an effort to overturn Trump’s election loss in Arizona to Joe Biden. The two men appeared by videoconference for separate brief hearings Friday. A judge set an Oct. 31 trial date. Meadows and Roman are accused of working with other Trump campaign members to submit names of fake electors from Arizona and other states to Congress to keep Trump in office.
