The real purpose of the Jim Jordan House Judiciary Committee hearing in New York is to meddle in Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump.
Here is the announcement of the hearing:

It’s obvious that the purpose of this hearing is for Jim Jordon and his third-rate Republican circus to come to New York City to soil the jury. The goal is to reinforce the claim that Trump cannot get a fair trial in Manhattan, so the case must be moved to a Republican area like Long Island.
House Republicans have no jurisdiction over Alvin Bragg or what happens in the Manhattan Attorney’s office. The hearing is a blatant attempt to interfere in Trump’s criminal proceedings.
Since Jordan’s hearing has no legislative purpose, Republicans are not hiding the fact that they are coming to town to attack Alvin Bragg.
If the New York hearing is like any of the other hearings Jordan has chaired, it will be a ridiculous spectacle that will make a huge bang and be quickly forgotten.
Interfering with a criminal investigation into a corrupt ex-president is apparently what Republicans mean when they talk about law and order.
