Most political observers are concerned about the possibility of corruptly indicting President Donald J. Trump, particularly as the radical far-left Attorney General of New York exposes her insane obsession with punishing the populist firebrand, who is widely believed to be the front-runner for the presidency in 2024, by bringing charges against him and his children in an effort to paralyze him.
Early in October, James filed her case, alleging that the Trump family had engaged in widespread asset overvaluation by overvaluing properties including buildings and golf resorts. It seems like merely a scheme to keep him occupied in court.
Trump declared this week that he is now suing the insane New York Attorney General Letitia James in response to the prosecutor’s case against him and his company.
Trump announced the news on his social media accounts, calling James “corrupt,” and New York “one of the most crime-ridden places on earth.”
According to The Daily Mail, “Trump further charged that James, who aired plans last year to run for governor against Kathy Hatchel in the upcoming election but backed out after failing to raise the necessary funds, has done little to protect New York against rampant crime.”
Instead, the lawsuit claims that through her office’s probe of Trump’s Big Apple-based real estate holding company, which James alleges evaded taxes for 15 years, the prosecution has engaged in a pointless “war of intimidation and harassment.”
The complaint, which was submitted to a Florida circuit court on Wednesday night, alleges that James used her authority improperly “to pursue a relentless, pernicious, public, and unapologetic crusade against” the former president, who now resides in Palm Beach County.
Trump claimed that the aim of James’ purported witch hunt is to “destroy him personally, financially, and politically.”
The legal case calls James a “political hack… who is using this lawsuit for political gain” and asks for specific damages in relation to his claimed smear campaign.
“James has repeatedly abused her position as Attorney General for the State of New York to pursue a relentless, pernicious, public, and unapologetic crusade against President Trump, a resident of Palm Beach County, Florida, with the stated goal of destroying him personally, financially, and politically,” the filing states.
It continues by denouncing James’ protracted investigation as “contrary to both the laws of New York and Florida,” asserting that it was started “before the pretext of a predicate existed” and without any supporting documentation.
According to the lawsuit, James “established within her office a policy of intimidating and harassing President Trump whenever possible,” starting during Trump’s presidency and continuing ever since he returned to his home in Palm Beach County. This behavior continued after James was elected in 2019.

The end objective of the AG’s ‘ongoing intimidation and harassment’ campaign, it charges, is to cause the Trump and the Trump Organization irrevocable ‘harm’ – while building up ‘underserved publicity’ for herself as a politician.
James’ suit claimed that Trump and other staffers at his real estate empire committed fraud on a regular basis for a decade and a half, inflating his net worth by billions of dollars while misleading banks and others for years about the true value of various assets.
It adds that statements submitted by James’ office to provide proof of the ex-president’s net worth ‘contained numerous disclaimers regarding the manner in which the estimates were prepared.’ CONTINUE READING…
