The lack of an indictment in the Staten Island chokehold case has caused tension between his new colleagues and Mr. Donovan, a former prosecutor and the sole Republican representing New York City.
"Yet for others in the delegation, Mr. Donovan’s arrival has rippled in a more disconcerting way. Several lawmakers said they remained suspicious of Mr. Donovan’s role in the Garner case, and complained that a judge had sided with the prosecutor and had refused to release transcripts of the confidential grand jury proceedings."
The Justice Department has opened a civil rights investigation into the case, in which a police officer’s chokehold on Mr. Garner, who was unarmed, led to the man’s death.
