House GOP Considering Taking Unprecedented Action Against Alvin Bragg, Stripping Him of Legal Immunity

Representative Austin Scott (R-GA) informed Just The News that House Republicans were considering removing prosecutorial immunity if they engaged in misconduct like bringing politicized charges. The Georgian lawmaker remarked that “I think you’re going to have to look at prosecutorial misconduct and whether or not prosecutors in this country should be exempt from liability.” The Republican Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), hinted that his colleagues were looking for ways to hold the Democrat Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg accountable for his political prosecution of Donald Trump.

“As he [Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan DA] routinely frees violent criminals to terrorize the public, he weaponized our sacred system of justice against President Donald Trump. The American people will not tolerate this injustice, and the House of Representatives will hold Alvin Bragg and his unprecedented abuse of power to account” said Speaker McCarthy.

Representative Scott suggested that Republicans should build on the move to end qualified immunity from police officers and turn the tables by ending immunity for political prosecutors. He said that “These left-wing, liberal prosecutors and George Soros prosecutors want to take away immunity from police officers, yet they want to maintain it for themselves. I guarantee you if this prosecutor did not have immunity for his actions, he would not have filed this against Donald Trump.”

Mr. Scott added that “maybe we need to be looking at how a prosecutor who abuses his power the way this Manhattan district attorney has done becomes personally liable and potentially criminally chargeable for their actions. And the state of Georgia has actually created a framework where prosecutors who operate outside of their bounds could be reviewed by their peers and potentially removed from office.”

GOP Lawmaker Demands Democrats Act Amid Trump Indictment – ‘Government Does Not Have The Right To Hunt Donald Trump’

Glenn Greenwald, a liberal journalist, noted the stakes involved with the Trump indictment. He wrote on Twitter that “A key hallmark of an authoritarian faction is a craving to see one’s political adversaries imprisoned. Another is a desire to censor their speech through a union of state and corporate power. Another is reverence for the Security State (CIA/FBI/DHS/NSA). Democrats have all 3.”

The journalist also further emphasized that “the key point here is not so much that a Soros-funded liberal Manhattan prosecutor indicted a former President: he indicted the current GOP presidential frontrunner for 2024. (Soros donated $1m to Color of Change PAC 6 days after it endorsed Bragg).”

An added layer of insult here is that federal funds have been used in Alvin Bragg’s probe of Mr. Trump. Representative Dan Bishop (R-NC) wrote  about this that “[t]his is beyond outrageous. The government is unquestionably weaponized against conservatives.”
