Trump loyalists descend on New York in attempt to humiliate Manhattan D.A. Bragg


NEW YORK (AP) — Republicans upset with Donald Trump’s indictment are escalating their war on the prosecutor who charged him, trying to embarrass Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on his home turf partly by falsely portraying New York City as a place overrun by crime.

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Ohio Republican Jim Jordan, is holding a field hearing Monday near Bragg’s offices to examine the Democrat’s “pro-crime, anti-victim” policies. One committee member, Arizona Republican Andy Biggs, tweeted that Bragg has “turned NYC into a wasteland,” and that “lawlessness is completely out of control.”
