( – On Saturday, House Republicans responded to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s (D) refusal to provide his testimony in regard to the probe examining former President Donald Trump’s role in the 2016 hush money payment scheme.

In a letter sent by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), House Administration Committee Chair Bryan Steil (R-Wis.), and House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.), the three rebuke Bragg’s accusations about their request for a testimony being “unlawful incursion” on his investigation.

In their eight-page letter, the three Republican lawmakers claim that the claim that “our constitutional oversight responsibilities will interfere with law enforcement is misplaced and unconvincing.” They added that their involvement would only consist of checking whether or not the law was being enforced fairly by his office or whether “prosecutorial discretion” was being abused in order to bring a “politically motivated indictment of a former President” forth.

The GOP lawmakers requested Bragg to provide his testimony, after Trump made the claims last weekend that he was going to be arrested in connection to this case on Tuesday.

The Manhattan district attorney is closing in on whether they are going to indict Trump in the case concerning the $130,000 payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence about an affair that she had with Trump prior to the 2016 presidential election. Bragg has not yet made a final decision on whether he was going to press charges against the former President.
