Letitia James, the attorney general of New York, has pledged to use her position to pursue former President Trump.
She stated, “I look forward to going into the Office of Attorney General every day, suing him. . . and then going home!”
She also stated, “what is fueling my soul right now is Trump”, and that she has “eyes on Trump Tower.”
She assured her followers prior to the election, “We would absolutely sue him. We will be a tremendous pain in the rear. He will know my name on an intimate level.” James also stated that Trump was a “illegitimate President.”
She promised to “throw a bright light into every dark corner of Trump’s real estate assets” after being elected attorney general.
She also pledged to “examine President Trump’s financial dealings and those of his family from every angle of the law.”

If there was any question in my mind, the raid of my home, Mar-a-Lago, on Monday by the FBI, just two days prior to this deposition, wiped out any uncertainty. I have absolutely no choice because the current Administration and many prosecutors in this Country have lost all moral and ethical bounds of decency.

Accordingly, under the advice of my counsel and for all of the above reasons, I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution.
“Attorney General Letitia James openly campaigned on the policy of ‘Get and Destroy Trump,’” Trump stated. “This political attack on me, my family, and my great company is her despicable attempt to fulfill that cynical, and very corrupt promise.”
“James developed a political platform and made a career out of maliciously attacking me and my business before she was even elected, or reviewed one of the millions of pages of documents we willingly produced,” Trump continued. CONTINUE READING…
