Washington, D.C. – Today, Judiciary Chairman, Jim Jordan, announced plans for a field hearing in Manhattan, New York, in an attempt to investigate the Manhattan District Attorney and his office in retaliation for their indictment of Donald Trump last week. In response, Congressional Integrity Project executive director Kyle Herrig issued the following statement: 

“A field hearing from the Judiciary Committee in New York City is only another taxpayer-funded political stunt spearheaded by Jim Jordan and the MAGA GOP. Jim Jordan and the rest of Donald Trump’s allies in Congress are making it clear they will go to any length to stand by the former president and his crimes. Jordan has completely abandoned any pretense that he is conducting legitimate investigations and instead he is abusing American citizens’ hard-earned tax dollars to help Donald Trump escape the rule of law.”
