Mayor Adams slammed Rep. Jim Jordan and Home Republicans on Monday morning for pulling a “political stunt” and “hypocrisy” for the listening to they’re holding to look at the crime insurance policies of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg later within the day.
Bragg’s workplace not too long ago secured a criminal indictment against ex-President Donald Trump — the primary in opposition to a former president — and Bragg himself has acquired death threats over the case.
Jordan’s hearing Monday at the Jacob Javits Federal Building in lower Manhattan is seen by many Democrats as a smoke display screen that’s getting used to discredit Bragg in his prosecution in opposition to Trump, a political ally of the Ohio Republican.
“Coming right here and highlighting DA Bragg is simply actually a political stunt,” Adams stated Monday throughout an look on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “Every time the previous president involves town he tends to carry those that are coming from exterior attempting to disrupt our lifestyle.”
