NEW YORK (WABC) -- In this edition of 'Eyewitness News Extra Time,' we break down the lawsuit Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed against Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan.
Bragg described the actions of Jordan "a brazen and unconstitutional attack." In order to shut down that "attack," Bragg sued the Republican representative on charges he is interfering with the DA's criminal prosecution of former President Donald Trump.
Last week, Jordan, who chairs the House judiciary committee, served a subpoena on Mark Pomerantz, who previously worked in the DA's office and participated in the investigation of Trump.
Tuesday's lawsuit seeks to block the former special assistant district attorney from testifying before the committee.
The court is set to hear this new lawsuit next Wednesday, April 19.
Here are the other headlines from Tuesday's show:
