Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg was recently denied his restraining order request against Rep. Jim Jordan.
Bragg filed a lawsuit against Rep. Jim Jordan on Tuesday and within that lawsuit, there was a clause that requested a restraining order against Jordan.
The Manhattan DA filed the lawsuit in order to stop The House Judiciary Committee led by Jordan to stop “interfering” in Trump’s “hush money” case.

Things aren’t going well for Radical Left Alvin Bragg:@mrddmia slams Bragg’s lawsuit against Jordan as “laughably frivolous” because “Bragg couldn’t even win a temporary restraining order.
Harvard Law should demand that Bragg return his law degree.”https://t.co/la4sarm2cs

Here’s what the Washington Examiner reported:
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s request for a restraining order in his lawsuit against Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was declined by a judge on Tuesday. The judge ordered Bragg to send material to Jordan by 9 p.m. Tuesday so the court could have a hearing on the situation on April 19.
Bragg requested the order in an attempt to block The House Judiciary Committee from interfering in the Stormy Daniels hush money case that former President Donald Trump was charged in last week. Jordan has subpoenaed an investigator previously involved in the case.
The lawsuit was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Tuesday. The hearing to determine whether the restraining order against Jordan takes effect is scheduled for April 19 at 2 p.m. in Courtroom 18C of the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Courthouse.
Bragg filed for a restraining order to stop the enforcement of a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee, which would compel a previous prosecutor in the Trump hush money case, Mark Pomerantz, to testify.

Breitbart got the scoop too:
federal court on Tuesday denied Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s request for a temporary restraining order to prevent House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) from questioning a former prosecutor about Bragg’s case against former President Donald Trump.
Bragg filed a lawsuit against Jordan on Tuesday in an attempt to stop him from following through on a subpoena he issued to Mark Pomerantz, a former special assistant in the Manhattan district attorney’s office who left when Bragg took over out of frustration that Bragg paused the Manhattan office’s investigation into Trump.
