A victims’ rights advocate due to testify before a lawmakers investigating Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s insurance policies says the soft-on-crime prosecutor ought to focus extra on preventing for crime victims — not losing his time prosecuting Donald Trump.
“What’s taking place underneath Alvin Bragg’s tenure because the Manhattan DA is totally atrocious and reprehensible,” Jennifer Harrison, founding father of Victims Rights NY, instructed The Post on Wednesday.
“Victims are being instructed that they don’t have the sources to prosecute crimes after which we’re watching him spend $200 million to indict a former president on expenses that even Democrats are calling questionable.”
Harrison is slated to testify a House Judiciary Committee listening to in Manhattan on April 17 convened by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) to research Bragg’s prosecutorial lapses.
Jordan referred to as for the hearings amid Bragg’s controversial indictment of Trump, 76, on alleged hush cash funds to reputed former paramours.
Harrison, whose web site maintains a “Fire Alvin Bragg” petition, started advocating for crime victims after her boyfriend, Kevin Davis, was stabbed to dying exterior a New Jersey nightclub in 2005 — with the killers later handled with child gloves by Garden State prosecutors.
She says soft-on-crime DAs have wreaked havoc throughout the US — beginning with Bragg.
“It’s a whole slap within the face when a rape sufferer is instructed there aren’t any sources to prosecute her rapist or a mom is instructed that there aren’t any sources to prosecute her little one’s killer,” she mentioned. “So, they’re getting out on a sweetheart deal.”
“To be sincere with you I hope to make clear what’s taking place right here in hopes that it’s going to change issues which might be taking place in different places as properly,” Harrison added.
Trump is charged with falsifying information by allegedly paying hush cash to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, who threatened to go public with claims of trysts with Trump on the eve of the 2016 presidential election.
Bragg is now suing Jordan and the House committee.
Harrison, nonetheless, says he could also be lacking the purpose.
“You know, this actually shouldn’t be about politics,” she mentioned. “This needs to be concerning the victims.”
She added, “We don’t want public defenders as prosecutors. We want prosecutors as prosecutors.”
