Breitbart: New York Democrats raged over House Judiciary Committee Republicans announcing Monday that they had scheduled an official committee hearing next week in New York City focused on “victims of violent crime in Manhattan.”
Alvin Bragg’s radical pro-crime, anti-victim policies have led to an increase in violent crime in New York City.
Next week, the Judiciary Committee will examine these policies during a field hearing in Manhattan.

The committee’s hearing notice specifically named Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whose investigation of former President Donald Trump led to a historic indictment of the former president at the end of last month.
The hearing, according to the notice, “will examine how Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s pro-crime, anti-victim policies have led to an increase in violent crime and a dangerous community for New York City residents.”
A Bragg spokesperson blasted the hearing as a “political stunt” that would not “engage in actual efforts to increase public safety, such as supporting national gun legislation and shutting down the iron pipeline.”

The spokesperson also touted that some types of violent crime in Manhattan have improved since Bragg took office. While the latest police statistics for south Manhattan show three murders this year versus ten this time last year, north Manhattan has seen 17 murders this year versus 12 last year.
New York City as a whole continues to see dismal rates of violent crime, despite small improvements over last year in some areas. The committee’s hearing will take place against a backdrop of Republicans widely accusing Bragg of pursuing charges against Trump for political rather than sincere purposes while being “soft on crime” in other areas.
We'll be hosting this hearing next week from NYC.
We'll be hearing from victims who are suffering under DA Bragg's pro-crime policies.
If Bragg can spend resources indicting President Trump, he should be able to address the soaring crime in NYC. https://t.co/S2IegwdPT1

Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jerry Nader (D-NY), who represents a swath of Manhattan, shared Bragg’s statement alongside his own condemnation of committee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
“New Yorkers don’t need to take public safety advice from Jim Jordan, whose ‘tough on crime’ solution is to defund the DOJ and FBI,” Nader wrote.
The hearing is set to take place just down the road from Nadler at the Javits Federal Building, which is situated in Rep. Dan Goldman’s (D-NY) section of Manhattan.
