Democrat NY Councilman Flips on Alvin Bragg, Testifies Against Him: ‘I Have Never Seen the Lawlessness We Are Seeing Now’

A New York City Democrat councilman has just flipped on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to blow the whistle on the George Soros-funded anti-Trump prosecutor.

Councilman Robert Holden will testify at Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) House Judiciary Committee hearing regarding Bragg’s get-Trump case.

Bragg is accused of ignoring the soaring violent crime in his district while he focuses on his politically motivated case against President Donald Trump.

Holden, who has served as the representative for the 30th district since 2018, is prepared to testify that the crime rate in New York City has increased “because of Bragg.”

He said: “When Bragg came in, he issued that ridiculous edict that he was not going to prosecute smaller crimes.

“What do we have in New York City?

“We have lawlessness on the streets.

“I have never seen the lawlessness we are seeing now.

“Under his policy, petty theft, even resisting arrest, prostitution, public urination will not be prosecuted.

“This is a DA saying to that to the public,” Holden noted.

“It is just stupid. It’s just dumb.

“We have a bad combination in New York.

“There were 17 straight years of downward crime in New York City until that 2019 bail reform law.”

He said that, because of the new law, members of the NYPD “don’t want to engage” with suspects.

“Even if they do engage, they’re going to get district attorneys like Bragg who are going to say, ‘We’re not prosecuting,’” he said.

“I credit Rudy Giuliani as the mayor who saved New York.

“I lived through that. They don’t like to hear it. But I lived through it.”

According to ABC:

The witnesses scheduled to testify include advocates for victim’s rights and Jose Alba, a bodega worker who was charged with murder in a killing that was later ruled self-defense, and the charges were dropped.

“There is shoplifting, there’s boosting, there’s assaults, there’s rapes, there’s a nonstop crime. You look on 57th Street alone from east to west, it’s become a danger zone,” said Curtis Sliwa, former candidate for NYC Mayor, and head of the Guardian Angels.

“We were treated like garbage! Like garbage!” said Madeline Brame, the victim’s mother.

Brame did not hold back her disdain for DA Bragg.

She’s angry that after her son, Army Veteran Hassan Correa was murdered in Harlem, Bragg’s office took over the case, decided the evidence was not sufficient, and downgraded the charges.
