New York’s highly partisan and hack Attorney General, Letitia James, has just announced a criminal investigation into the Trump campaign:
NY POST – New York Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation of the Trump Organization is criminal in nature, her office revealed Tuesday.
James’ office had been conducting a civil investigation of former President Donald Trump’s company.
“We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the organization is no longer purely civil in nature,” a spokesperson for the attorney general said in a statement.
“We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA. We have no additional comment at this time.”
James has been investigating the Trump Organization since 2019 after Trump’s onetime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, testified to Congress that Trump exaggerated the value of his financial assets in order to help score more favorable terms on loans and insurance policies. Cohen is serving the remainder of a three-year prison sentence under federal house arrest after pleading guilty to tax evasion and campaign finance violations.
This is precisely what James promised she’d do right after she was elected in 2018, long before she was aware of any ‘wrongdoing’ by Trump or his organization:
NBC NEWS – New York Attorney Gen.-elect Letitia James says she plans to launch sweeping investigations into President Donald Trump, his family and “anyone” in his circle who may have violated the law once she settles into her new job next month.
“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” James, a Democrat, told NBC News in her first extensive interview since she was elected last month.
That is precisely why I have little faith in any of it. A real and honorable attorney general will not go on fishing expeditions in the hopes of making a name for herself by riding Trump’s coattails for political gain, as I believe James is doing here. She’s also obviously using her position to try to delegitimize Trump and his good name in order to prevent him from being the political force that he is, particularly in 2024.
I’m hoping that when the dust settles, Trump triumphs over this despicable AG, but I think she’ll be long gone by then.
