Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan, has requested Attorney General Merrick Garland to provide records concerning the employment of prosecutor Matthew Colangelo, citing concerns about potential coordination issues. Colangelo presented the initial arguments on behalf of Bragg in the trial involving Trump, accusing "a criminal conspiracy and a cover-up."

"The Committee on the Judiciary is conducting oversight of politically motivated prosecutions by state and local officials," Jordan wrote in a letter to Garland, obtained by Fox News Digital. "Since last year, popularly elected prosecutors—who campaigned for office on the promise of prosecuting President Trump—engaged in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority: the indictment of a former President of the United States and current leading candidate for that office."
