A federal court temporarily stopped former Special Assistant District Attorney Mark Pomerantz from being required to testify over Manhattan District Attorney Bragg’s investigation into former President Donald Trump.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan subpoenaed Pomerantz after Bragg indicted Trump for allegedly falsifying business records, with the congressman accusing Pomerantz of politicizing the investigation and encouraging Bragg to press charges. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil turned down Bragg’s request to stop the subpoena’s enforcement in his April 11 lawsuit against Jordan, but the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a temporary administrative stay of the subpoena’s Thursday return date so a three-panel judge could consider Bragg’s subsequent appeal.

(…) Pomerantz said in his book “People vs. Donald Trump: An Inside Account” that he resigned from Bragg’s office in February 2022 when he came to believe Trump would not be indicted and told Bragg he was responsible for a “grave failure of justice.” (Read more, The Daily Caller, 4/20/2023) (Archive)
