Manhattan DA Bragg slammed by violent crime victims at House GOP's hearing in NYC
Victims of violent crime in Manhattan on Monday cast much of the blame on District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his policies, during a GOP-led House hearing in New York City on the matter.
"Repeat offenders are plaguing New York City," said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan. "Our plan this Congress, has been to include field hearings in some of our greatest cities to analyze and highlight how soft on crime policies hurt families, hurt communities, hurt small business owners. ... What better place to start than New York City where videos of violent, senseless attacks appear almost daily."
Democrats on the committee, as the have since the hearing was announced, continued to try to portray it as politically motivated, particularly since Bragg earlier this month filed a 34-count federal indictment against former President Trump.
"I am a willing participant," Madeline Brame, whose son was murdered roughly five years ago, said loudly in response to such accusations.
