CGL’s Charles Tiefer quoted and cited in New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s complaint against Jim Jordan.

“There hasn’t been a subpoena enforcement against a state attorney general in 200 years . . . and there’s an excellent reason. State Attorneys General have their own state sovereign authority.
