Manhattan DA Rejects GOP Demand For Info On Former President Trump Case

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Manhattan district attorney investigating Donald Trump has rebuffed House Republicans’ request to turn over documents.
The office called the effort an “unprecedented inquiry” into an ongoing probe.
In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, the general counsel for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg admonished the congressional requests as “an unlawful incursion into New York’s sovereignty.”
The response from Bragg’s office comes days after the Republican chairmen of three House committees sent a letter to him, seeking information about his actions in the Trump case, which they characterized as an “unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority.”
