NY Attorney General Moves to Dismiss Trump Lawsuit

New York Attorney General Letitia James has asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit from former president Trump trying to block her investigation into potential fraud in his company.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“This lawsuit is nothing but a baseless and meritless collateral attack by Donald Trump to stop our legal and legitimate investigation into his and the Trump Organization’s financial dealings,” James said in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “In the three years that we have been conducting this investigation, the Trump Organization and its principles have never challenged the legality of the investigation, until now, when Mr. Trump himself was subpoenaed to testify.”

James issued a subpoena for the former president, Ivanka Trump, and Donald Trump Jr. earlier this month, according to a court filing. Her civil investigation, which dates back to 2019, has produced more than 90,000 documents and “has brought in more than a dozen employees for testimony,” according to her statement.

Trump filed the lawsuit Dec. 20 to stop James from investigating his businesses, arguing that his rights had been violated, and sought to block her from cooperating with a criminal inquiry, led by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, into his business empire.

Trump claimed he is the victim of “viewpoint discrimination.”

90,000 documents produced, more than a dozen employees deposed and not a single criminal charge. I say that this is a rich hunt.
Better yet, how about we change the rules and investigate the investigators…I bet within 1000 documents and 2 depositions we have 50 felonies and violations of Civil Rights.

A paper avalanche is moving towards Donald Trump et al. If Donald Trump, and associates, is innocent of criminal activities, they should welcome a thorough investigation, not fear it.

It’s not fear, it’s the disregard for his civil rights. It’s the inconvenience plus the cost to defend something that should never have been investigated at all. Do we see any of the liberal businesses being investigated? Like Google, twitter, etc where they have anti conservative rules in play? How about Hunter’s dealings? The Clinton’s? Even the Biden’s have their hand in the corruption pie. And yet, no investigations – at least not ones they are interested in letting off.

Jolly, most of us do not want our enemies knowing our business,even if it didn’t cost us anything. There are many reasons to not allow this witch junt, just one, is the AG’s office, should have other things to do than indict because of hate and jealousy..

Of course there was no interest in the Clinton crime machine which ripped off millions from the Haitian fund, nor was there any problem with Hunter Biden’s deal which benefited the “big guy”, or the Obama slip promising Putin he would be able to do more after his second term. Which makes me wonder if Biden’s presidency was not part or all of that bargain?

Republicans have been investigating the Clintons for decades, fruitlessly. They even impeached Bill Clinton but failed to convict. Eight (or so) Republican investigations into Benghazi failed to find criminal activities on Hillary’s part. Were Republican investigators incompetent, or was there little or nothing for them to find?

This AG witch hunt is for what she imagines, or to cause trouble. What Hillary did in the Benghazi killing of our people, was to do nothing, allowing the ambassador and other brave Americans to go to their death, without the help of our marines

Hmmm, you should read what Ken Starr said about it. And Hitlery is being investigated presently. The Klinton’s are a crime family of epic proportions. It sounds like you’re a criminal too.

The Clintons should be open to investigation if there is no wrongdoing, shouldn’t they?

Letitia James is a corrupt New York official who has fraudulently attacked President Trump. She should be dis-barred and removed from office for her scandalous behavior.!

Any person who espoused a love for this nation and its constitution so forcefully would also be under relentless attack by the democommunists. The democommies want one party government and they want it to be socialist-marxist-communist. And eventually, their utopia, is to have World Socialist, no-borders, Government. All the communists of the world pee themselves imagining that.

Letitia James is neither more nor less vulnerable than any other person being questioned for fraud! She’ll do whatever is necessary to exonorate herself and in the end justice will be served in whatever way it is considered accurate!

Her civil investigation, which dates back to 2019, has produced more than 90,000 documents and “has brought in more than a dozen employees for testimony,” according to her statement. But in her almost 3 years of persecution of President Trump how many convictions, how many charges, or even how many indictments? ZERO, that’s how many. NY taxpayers are sure getting the financial shaft with all this. And in the mean time actual crime runs rampant.

Enough is enough. America is waking up much quicker now. Donald Trump is the only thing standing between WE THE PEOPLE and the graveyard the Cabal had planned to bury us in after more and more booooosters! Deep state institutions are committing genocide. This is a holocaust and it needs to stop yesterday. Too many innocent people have lost their lives due to the jab. They will keep attacking President Trump no matter what because he’s beat them. He’s trapped them in their every move and WE THE PEOPLE need to stand up with each other against the criminal puppets that have taken over our government. A year is up. January 20, 2021 has come and gone. Our military is in control and Superman is running late. The best is yet to come when Trump Triumphs in the end. Stay tuned!
