‘Do something!’ Speaker McCarthy sends tweet about Bragg, sparks fury with GOP voters

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is facing increasing backlash over his habit of promising to do a lot but ultimately doing nothing.

Following former President Donald Trump’s arraignment on Tuesday, for example, he issued a warning for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Writing on Twitter, he warned the Democrat prosecutor that his attempts “interfere in our democratic process” would be scrutinized by Congress.

“Alvin Bragg is attempting to interfere in our democratic process by invoking federal law to bring politicized charges against President Trump, admittedly using federal funds, while at the same time arguing that the peoples’ representatives in Congress lack jurisdiction to investigate this farce,” he said.

“Not so. Bragg’s weaponization of the federal justice process will be held accountable by Congress,” he added.


This is the second time in a matter of days that McCarthy has threatened Bragg with consequences over his indictment of Trump.

In a Twitter post published last Thursday, he again vowed to “hold Alvin Bragg and his unprecedented abuse of power to account.”

“Alvin Bragg has irreparably damaged our country in an attempt to interfere in our Presidential election. As he routinely frees violent criminals to terrorize the public, he weaponized our sacred system of justice against President Donald Trump,” he wrote.

“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,” he added.


The problem is that it’s been days and he’s still done nothing. Bragg hasn’t even been subpoenaed, let along dragged into Congress to answer questions.

Many Republicans, particularly Trump-supporting Republicans, are growing increasingly impatient and demanding quick action.


Meanwhile, other Republicans are continuing to do the same thing as McCarthy. Take House Judiciary Committee chair Jim Jordan.

Speaking on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” this past weekend, he threatened to subpoena Bragg.

“Everything’s on the table,” he said.

Yet days later, no subpoena has been filed. Critics say it’s like Republicans are scared. Of what? Of possible consequences that they themselves could potentially face.

Indeed, after Jordan and two of his colleagues reportedly recently sent a letter to Bragg demanding his congressional testimony, the AG penned his own letter to them accusing them of potentially doing something illegal.

In a letter obtained by NBC News, Leslie Dubeck, the general counsel for the Manhattan DA’s office, reportedly called their request “an unprecedent inquiry into a pending local prosecution” which “only came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested the next day and his lawyers reportedly urged you to intervene.”

“Neither fact is a legitimate basis for congressional inquiry,” Dubeck wrote, reportedly adding that Bragg is a “constitutional officer charged with ‘the responsibility to conduct all prosecutions for crimes and offenses cognizable by the court of the county in which he serves.'”
