Once more, the never-sleeping city governed by Democrats (whose leaders are likely on crack cocaine) will witness the spectacle of the ongoing witch hunt against former President Donald Trump.
According to reports, Trump will return to New York City this week to be interrogated by Attorney General Letitia James in connection with her fraud investigation into the Trump Organization.
As reported in the New York Post, here is the breaking news:
Former President Donald Trump is due back in the Big Apple this week to be grilled for the second time by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is probing the Trump Organization’s business practices, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Monday.
Trump is expected to plead the Fifth — or refuse to answer questions to avoid potentially incriminating himself — as he did when he was quizzed by the AG’s office in the case last year, sources from multiple agencies said. He is due to fly up from his home in Florida on Wednesday night for questioning by James’ prosecutors at her Manhattan offices Thursday morning, sources said.
Last week, news agencies spent days covering Trump’s arraignment in Manhattan on allegations of paying hush money. During that trial, he entered a not-guilty plea; he is due back in court in December.
The left is throwing everything they can at him in an apparent attempt to prevent him from standing for president in 2024, but their efforts appear to be backfiring. After his indictment, he has risen in every poll, and it does not appear that he will halt any time soon.
A New York judge presiding over Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump may be questioned about his own past actions and subject to an ethics complaint.
According to Breitbart News, a number of legal experts and former prosecutors assert that Judge Juan Merchan violated New York’s Code of Judicial Conduct by making three donations to Democrats in 2020, which could lead to an ethics investigation and possibly a mistrial if he continues to preside over the case.
As stated in Section 100.5 of the New York Code of Judicial Conduct, judges can’t “directly or indirectly engage in any political activity.” In particular, judges are prohibited from: “(h) soliciting funds for, paying an assessment to, or making a contribution to a political organization or candidate.”
This is clearly stated in the yearly handbook of the New York State Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics: “A sitting judge may not make political contributions at any time, even to a U.S. presidential candidate or to a federal congressional candidate outside of New York State (Opinion 11-146; 22 NYCRR 100.5[A][h]).”
