Biden's DOJ And Alvin Bragg Blindsided With Bad News

America First Legal is suing the Department of Justice, demanding the immediate release of documents related 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."

The main focus of these allegations is Matthew Colangelo, a senior Biden DOJ official who joined Bragg’s team as a prosecutor after leaving the department. Prior to accepting a low-level prosecutor position in Bragg’s office, Colangelo was the DOJ’s third-highest ranking 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 stated in a press release.

In addition to the lawsuit, the legal team filed numerous Freedom of Information Act requests for correspondence related to Colangelo’s hiring. They seek communication between Colangelo and the following individuals and entities: 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).

Another request is for correspondence between Matt Klapper, currently the chief of staff to Attorney General Merrick Garland, 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.

“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,” America First Legal’s press release continued.

“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 individual in Bragg’s team with ties to the Democratic Party. Susan Hoffinger, another member of the Trump prosecution team, has made multiple contributions to left-wing political figures and organizations. Bragg himself ran on a platform of prosecuting Trump.

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

Hoffinger donated a total of $500 to Biden’s 2020 campaign, with two contributions of $250 each in February and March of that year. She also donated $900 to ActBlue, a fundraising platform that supports Democratic candidates and progressive causes, during the 2020 election cycle.

“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 in 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.”
