Letitia James, the radical far-left Attorney General of New York City who is running for re-election on a platform of getting Trump, filed a $250 million lawsuit on September 21 accusing the Trump Organization of massive fraud for allegedly falsely inflating President Donald J. Trump’s net worth by manipulating the value of some of his prized assets, including his numerous golf courses, hotels, and homes.
Trump, who has referred to the lawsuit as a “witch hunt,” recently criticized James for pursuing his firm while violent crime increases in New York City during a rally in Warren, Michigan.
He told the crowd in Warren that he has done “nothing wrong” and that “There’s no victim except Trump,” in the case.
“They’re all attacking me including the racist AG, attorney general, in New York, whose state is falling apart from murders, rapes, robberies, drug deals and every other kind of form of record-breaking crime,” the 45th president said.
“The homeless are sadly but dangerously roaming all over the streets of New York City and the city is filthy as is this racist AG. She is just as bad as you’re going to get.”
And Trump is not alone in evaluating James’ activities against him.
“Her anti-Trump lawsuit is a staggering criminalization of politics,” Jeffrey Lord said in a superb op-ed for the American Spectator, condemning James in no uncertain terms:
James, who ran for attorney general in 2018 to replace the disgraced Eric Schneiderman, campaigned on a platform of pursuing then-president Donald Trump. Said James in a promotional video:
I will never be afraid to challenge this illegitimate president…. I believe that this president is incompetent. I believe that this president is ill-equipped to serve in the highest office of this land. And I believe that he is an embarrassment to all that we stand for.

And just how was she going to accomplish her “challenge”? Said she:
As the next attorney general of his home state … I will be shining a bright light into every dark corner of his real estate dealings, and every dealing, demanding truthfulness at every turn.
Got all that? There was Letitia James, making her major campaign promise for New York’s top legal position the prosecution of a private citizen of New York state for no other reason than her personal and political hatred of him. CONTINUE READING…
