( – Last month, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) had requested in a letter that both Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and prosecutor Matthew Colangelo from former President Donald Trump’s New York hush money trial provide their testimony. 

Bragg has now responded to the demand positively, meaning he will be testifying at a June 13 hearing on Trump’s “unprecedented political prosecution.” The letter with the response was written by district attorney’s counsel Leslie Dubeck.

In the letter, Dubeck also told Jordan that Bragg was going to be available to provide his testimony on a date they would agree on, but that the proposed time caused scheduling conflicts. 

Jordan’s spokesperson Stefanie Farrell noted in a statement that when it came to what would happen afterward “everything is on the table.”

Last week Trump was convicted on all 34 felony counts relating to the falsification of business records in an attempt to conceal a hush money payment that had been made to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence about their alleged affair. Trump has continuously denied the affair. 

On July 11, only four days before the Republican National Convention, Trump is going to be sentenced in connection to this case. The convention is set to take place in Milwaukee where it is expected that Trump is going to be officially named the Republican nominee.

The prosecutors in their letter response pointed out that Trump’s New York case is not yet over.
