Following the arraignment of former President Donald Trump on federal charges related to his management of classified documents on Tuesday in Miami, New York’s attorney general, Letitia James, provided an update on Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump.
James told MSNBC’s Alex Wagneron during a panel at the Tribeca Film Festival that the federal case will take primacy over Bragg’s case, which she has filed against The Trump Organization, as well as a potential case in Fulton County, Georgia.
“In all likelihood, I believe that my case, as well as DA Bragg and the Georgia case, will, unfortunately, have to be adjourned pending the outcome of the federal case,” James said. “So it all depends upon the scheduling of this particular case. I know there’s gonna be a flood, a flurry of motions, motion to dismiss, discovery issues, all of that. So it really all depends. Obviously, all of us want to know what Judge [Aileen] Cannon is going to do and whether or not she’s going to delay this particular case.”
Democrats have argued that Trump’s claims that the multiple investigations and indictment against him are politically motivated are false. However, in January, a video of James from her campaign for office resurfaced in which she vowed to specifically target him and his multibillion-dollar businesses.
Eric Trump posted the video of James pledging to bring down Trump to his Instagram account.
“This is not the United States Legal System – this is third-world prosecutorial misconduct. Promising to target a political opponent and their family before even entering office – it’s hard to believe this is America. Letitia James may go down as the most politically corrupt Attorney General in New York history,” he said in the caption of the video.
“Stay Tuned… we have sued her for her unethical behavior and a judge will see every one of these videos, her viciousness and the pure malice of her actions and statements.
“More to come: Tomorrow may just be a video of James ad-libbing the song “I will survive” while interjecting hate speech about Donald Trump…. very common for the top law enforcement official in the State of New York,” the former president’s son said.
“This garbage erodes Americans’ confidence in the legal system and it will stop. Thank you to everyone who has sent videos of her – we seem to get new ones almost every day. #KeepThemComing,” he said.
In the video, James was seen saying, “The days of this president are numbered, “We will rise up together, and we will resist this president” and “bring him down.”

After becoming attorney general, she was asked by talk show host Samantha Bee “Can we actually get him?” To which James responded with laughter and then said, “We’re not here to get anyone.” CONTINUE READING…
