Breitbart reported:

House Judiciary Republicans on Monday announced an upcoming hearing shining a spotlight on the victims of “violent crime” in the anti-Trump district attorney Alvin Bragg’s Manhattan.

According to a release from the GOP, the field hearing, dubbed “Victims of Violent Crime in Manhattan,” will take place Monday, April 17, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern in the Big Apple.

More specifically, the hearing 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,” per the announcement.

Indeed, as Breitbart News extensively reported, the Soros-linked district attorney has “built a record of dropping felony charges, decreasing felony convictions, downgrading felonies to mere misdemeanors, and not bothering to request bail for suspects accused of felonies” as crime runs rampant in the city:

Data published last year revealed that Bragg’s office downgraded the majority, 52 percent, of felony cases to misdemeanors ensuring that suspects faced minor charges despite initially being accused of felonious crimes.

For comparison, just 39 percent of felony cases in Manhattan were downgraded to misdemeanors in 2019. Even as former District Attorney Cyrus Vance (D) advanced a far-left agenda, the number of felony cases downgraded to misdemeanors never exceeded 40 percent under his watch.

Last year, Bragg’s office also refused to prosecute over 1,100 felony cases in Manhattan. What is more, Bragg has reduced felony charges for a career criminal while slapping Trump with 34 charges. Bragg has also utilized the bail reform law to release suspects from jail.

Victims of Bragg’s “failure to prosecute” are expected to be witnesses.

From The New York Post:

The source said that “victims” of Bragg’s “failure to prosecute” are expected to be witnesses, though they were not immediately able to share the expected witness list.

Before pursuing the indictment against Trump, Bragg, an elected Democrat, downgraded the severity of charges against many offenders.

From Jan. 1, 2022, when he took office, through late November, Bragg downgraded 52% of felony cases to misdemeanors, The Post reported.

When felony charges were brought, his office won a conviction just 51% of the time. Both percentages were lower than in comparable recent years.
