Jim Jordan has one surprise that Alvin Bragg is going to hate

Jun 7, 2024

Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg took a victory lap after convicting Donald Trump in a rigged show trial.

But the celebration on the Left may be short lived.

And Jim Jordan has one surprise that Alvin Bragg is going to hate.

Jim Jordan proposes defunding Democrat Party lawfare against Trump

Despite the fact that Republicans don’t act like it, they do in fact control the majority in the House of Representatives.

That gives Republicans control over the power of the purse.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) thinks it’s about time the GOP majority exercised its Constitutional authority.

In a letter to House Appropriations Committee Chairman Tom Cole (R-OK), Jordan outlined his committee’s priorities for the upcoming fiscal year 2025 government funding bills.

Jordan listed defunding Joe Biden’s political persecutions of Donald Trump as a top agenda item.

“As the Appropriations Committee continues its work for fiscal year 2025, we look forward to building on our work from last year and better utilizing Congress’s power of the purse to protect the civil liberties of the American people, promote government accountability, and rein in the Biden Administration’s disastrous policies,” Jordan wrote.

Jordan accused Joe Biden of colluding with rogue prosecutors to terrorize his election opponent with politically motivated charges.

“We have conducted oversight of the troubling rise in politicized prosecutions and the use of abusive “lawfare” tactics to target political opponents. We have seen rogue prosecutors abuse the rules of professional conduct and their duty to do justice in service of politicized ends,” Jordan added.

To that end, Jordan recommended the Appropriations Committee strip out all federal funding for Jack Smith’s two witch hunts against Trump as well as for the offices of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

“We recommend that the Appropriations Committee, with appropriate consultation from leadership, include language to eliminate federal funding for state prosecutors or state attorneys general involved in lawfare and to zero out federal funding for federal prosecutors engaged in such abuse,” Jordan continued.

Jordan also proposed a series of legislative remedies that Congress could enact to prevent future acts of lawfare.

“In addition, the Judiciary Committee has passed specific bills that would help to address politicized prosecutions and we encourage the Appropriations Committee to consider including the policies contained in each: H.R. 2553, the No More Political Prosecutions Act, and H.R. 2595, the Forfeiture Funds Expenditure Transparency Act,” Jordan concluded.

The roadblock 

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) is the biggest obstacle in Jordan’s path.

Johnson’s proven to be a Joe Biden loyalist who votes with the Democrats to muscle Biden’s agenda through Congress.

And in an interview with POLITICO, Johnson opposed defunding Jack Smith’s two sham prosecutions of Trump.

“That’s not something you wave a wand and just eliminate the special counsel as a provision,” Johnson stated.

“There is a necessity for a function like that, because sometimes the Department of Justice — which is an executive branch agency — can’t necessarily, without a conflict of interest, investigate or prosecute the president who’s their boss, or the president’s family,” Johnson added.

POLITICO asked if Johnson would support spending bills that defunded Smith’s office.

“No,” Johnson replied.
