Donald Trump lashed out in an angry rant against New York Attorney General Letitia James after she announced a major lawsuit against him and three of his sons.
The former president responded to the Truth Social, writing: “Another Witch Hunt by a racist attorney general, Letitia James, who failed her governor’s run, had almost no public support, and is now doing poorly against Law & Order AG candidate, Much respected Michael Henry.”
“I never thought this case would be brought up – until I saw really bad poll numbers. She’s a fraud who campaigned on the Get Trump platform, despite the fact that the city is one of the world’s crime and murder disasters on her watch!” he added.
In a second post, Mr Trump added: “Attorney General Letitia ‘Pecabo’ James, a full-blown crime-fighting disaster in New York, spends all her time fighting for strong and well-represented banks and insurance companies, who are all paid, made a lot of money, And I had no complaints from me, instead of fighting murder and violent crime, which is killing the state of New York.”
“It’s the failed AG whose lack of talent in fighting crime is causing record numbers of people and companies to flee New York. Goodbye!” he wrote.
Today, I sued Donald Trump for his involvement in years of financial fraud to enrich himself, his family, and the Trump Organization. There are no two sets of laws for the people of this nation: past presidents must be held to the same standards as ordinary Americans.”
With the help of Donald Jr., Eric, Ivanka and other defendants, Trump has illegally inflated and reduced his net worth by billions to get and pay off loans, get insurance benefits, and pay lower taxes. In short, he lied to get huge financial benefits for himself.
Ms. James wrote on Twitter that her investigation “found that Trump, his family, and the Trump Organization used fraudulent and misleading asset assessments more than 200 times in 10 years in their annual financial statements. This data was then used to obtain hundreds of millions of dollars in loans and insurance coverage.”
“Trump’s crimes are not without victims,” she added. “When the powerful and well-connected break the law to get more money than they are entitled to, it reduces the resources available to workers, small businesses, and taxpayers.”
