Former President Donald Trump criticized New York Attorney General Letitia James for her conduct during his civil fraud trial, accusing her of political bias and seeking excessive damages.
Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., claimed the lawsuit was a witch hunt and would harm New York businesses.
“‘This is a law that’s rather bazar, this is a law that doesn’t require any victims (there are none, except me!), it doesn’t require anyone to lose money – the banks didn’t complain here, they made money,” Trump wrote.
“You have a (Trump Hating!) Attorney General who’s seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages when not a single penny was lost by these banks, and that’s part of this (Unconstitutional!) Law…You can see from the reaction of A.G. James, every morning from that seat, that she is enjoying this, enjoying it a bit too much.’”
“Law Professor Jonathan Turley. THIS LAW HAS NEVER BEEN USED FOR THIS BEFORE. It is both Unconstitutional and very UNFAIR! No businesses will come to New York, only continue to leave. The whole case is RIGGED from D.C. It is ELECTION INTERFERENCE. OUR COUNTRY IS BROKEN & CORRUPT!!!”
They expressed concern about the case’s impact on the city’s business environment and suggested that the attorney general was unfairly targeting them for political reasons.
“This is about the attorney general going after and prosecuting her political enemies,” Don Jr. said.
“My brother and I had nothing to do with it, but it doesn’t matter because it’s a witch hunt,” Trump added.
“That’s what you get from the Democratic Party in New York these days, it seems,” Trump pressed.
“It’s a scary precedent. I don’t know how anyone could do business in this city with that. Anyone you speak to who’s actually in banking, who’s actually in real estate understands that, but again, they don’t want to put themselves in the crosshair, so perhaps they’ll be silent. So it’s a disgrace that this is happening right now.”
“Hopefully, one day, the people of this great city will realize what’s going on,” Trump added. “They’ll realize the destructive practices here. They’ll realize just how insane that is. And they’ll be begging for guys like Donald Trump to come back to New York City to reshape the skyline as he’s done for decades.”
