In a recent development, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, along with his prosecutor Matthew Colangelo, have consented to testify before Congress, as reported by Newsweek.

The duo is slated to make a public appearance before the House Judiciary Committee on July 12, a day succeeding the sentencing hearing of former President Donald Trump in Manhattan. Bragg's office has been instrumental in successfully prosecuting the criminal case against Trump, a fact that has not gone unnoticed by the former president.

Trump, in his characteristic style, has launched attacks on both prosecutors throughout the hush money investigation. He has made veiled references to Colangelo, without explicitly naming him, by drawing attention to his former role as a senior official at the Justice Department.

Colangelo, who joined Bragg's office in December, also spearheaded the New York attorney general's civil inquiry into Trump. His extensive resume has been exploited by Republicans to cast aspersions on the case against Trump.

In a bid to quell GOP speculations about a possible collusion between the federal agency and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office in the Trump case, the Justice Department took a firm stand on Monday. "The Department does not generally make extensive efforts to rebut conspiratorial speculation, including to avoid the risk of lending it credibility," stated Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte in a letter to the Republican-led committee.

Uriarte further clarified, "Department leadership did not dispatch Mr. Colangelo to the District Attorney's office, and Department leadership was unaware of his work on the investigation and prosecution involving the former President until it was reported in the news."

This commitment to transparency from the Department of Justice underscores the importance of maintaining integrity in the face of baseless claims, while the ongoing investigation continues to shed light on the complex dynamics of political power and accountability.
