Biden’s DOJ And Alvin Bragg Blindsided With Bad News

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Demanding the immediate release of documents pertaining to “credible allegations” of “improper collusion by the Biden White House and Department of Justice (DOJ) in the sham political show trial of President Trump conducted by Alvin Bragg, the New York County District Attorney’s Office, and Judge Juan Merchan,” America First Legal is suing the Department of Justice.

The principal target of the allegations of cooperation between the Biden Administration and Bragg’s office is Matthew Colangelo, a senior Biden DOJ official who joined Bragg’s team as a prosecutor after leaving the department. Before accepting a low-level position as a prosecutor in Bragg’s office, Colangelo was the Department of Justice’s third-highest ranking officer official.

“Today, AFL sued the DOJ to compel the immediate release of previously requested records regarding Matthew Colangelo, a key figure in the partisan and politically-motivated prosecution of President Trump in Manhattan,” America First Legal wrote in a press release.

The legal team filed many more Freedom of Information Act requests for correspondence regarding Colangelo’s hiring in addition to the lawsuit. The group is requesting contact between Colangelo and the following parties: Jay Bratt, David Harbach, Special Counsel Jack Smith, the Office of the New York County District Attorney, and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

A second request is for correspondence between Matt Klapper and the Public Integrity Section of the DOJ, CREW, Special Counsel Smith, Bratt, Harbach, and Colangelo, as well as the Office of the New York County District Attorney. Klapper is the chief of staff to Attorney General Merrick Garland at the moment.

The press release from America First Legal went on to state: “These critical records will expose the relationship between Colangelo, Klapper, the Biden White House, Special Counsel Smith, and the New York County District Attorney in the sham prosecution of President Trump.”

“The ‘Russian collusion’ hoax turned out to be a deep state operation to interfere in the 2016 election and then to cripple the duly elected President of the United States. The American people have a right to know the extent to which the deep state is also part of the New York show trial circus and the leftist election interference program. AFL will keep fighting to uncover the truth.”

Colangelo is not the only member in Bragg’s group with Democratic Party affiliations. While Susan Hoffinger, a member of the Trump prosecution team, has made multiple contributions to left-wing political personalities and organizations, Bragg personally ran on a platform of prosecuting Trump.

Fox News examined records from the Federal Election Commission and found that Hoffinger gave to Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign.

Hoffinger contributed $500 in total to the president’s 2020 campaign. This comprises two donations, one in February and one in March of the same year, totaling $250. During the 2020 election campaign, she also gave $900 to ActBlue, a fundraising group that supports Democratic candidates and progressive causes.

“The United States Department of Justice’s job is to check an unscrupulous local prosecutor’s abuse of authority, not facilitate it. But there are troubling indications that political partisans within the Department actively helped lay the foundation for and advance the New York District Attorney’s sham show trial of President Trump,” said America First Legal Senior Vice President Reed. D. Rubinstein when announcing the lawsuit.

“AFL will relentlessly work to ensure the transparency and accountability needed to protect the Department’s integrity and to preserve what’s left of the public’s trust in this most critical of our federal institutions.”
