Trump Prosecutors to Testify Before Congress

Two of the leading figures in President Donald Trump’s New York prosecution will testify before the U.S. House of Representatives on July 12th, just one day after President Trump’s sentencing.

According to Just The News, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D-N.Y.) and prosecutor and former Department of Justice (DOJ) official Matthew Colangelo are set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in July.

President Trump was charged with 34 felony counts over a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with former porn actress Stormy Daniels. In May, the jury found him guilty on all counts.

Both Bragg and Colangelo have been accused of weaponizing the prosecution for political purposes. Critics point to the fact that the case regarding the NDA was not pursued by Bragg’s predecessor, Cyrus Vance Jr., due to the weak nature of the case itself, and that Bragg only took on the case as part of a campaign promise to prosecute Trump.

Similarly, Colangelo’s DOJ ties have been scrutinized following his involvement in the prosecution. Colangelo was a high-ranking official in Biden’s DOJ before leaving in December of 2022 to join Bragg’s prosecution team, before the charges were announced.

The trial and verdict have widely been denounced as politically-motivated, and Trump has remained defiant following the conviction. His campaign also saw a massive fundraising haul after the decision, raising over $200 million in less than a week. His poll numbers against Joe Biden have either remained the same or gone slightly up following the conviction.
