Federal Judge Dismisses Trump Lawsuit Against Letitia James

On Friday, a federal judge dismissed Donald Trump’s lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James, meaning her civil investigation into his business practices may move forward.

The Daily Mail reports:

In a 43-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Brenda Sannes said she based her decision on case law that, in most cases, bars federal judges from interfering in state-level investigations.

Sannes’ ruling came a day after a New York appeals court ruled that Trump must answer questions under oath in James’ probe, upholding a lower-court ruling requiring him to sit for a deposition.

‘In a big victory, a federal court has dismissed Donald Trump´s baseless lawsuit to stop my office´s investigation into his and the Trump Organization’s financial dealings,’ James said in a tweet. ‘Frivolous lawsuits won´t stop us from completing our lawful, legitimate investigation.’

Trump sued James in December after she issued a subpoena for his testimony.

Through his lawyers, the Republican former president alleged that the probe was political in nature and that James, a Democrat, had violated his constitutional rights in a ‘thinly-veiled effort to publicly malign Trump and his associates.’

Earlier in May, a lawyer for James’ office said the probe is winding down and that evidence from it could support legal action against the former president, his company, or both.

Just keep going up the ladder. I took note that they did not name who appointed this judge…..usually that means the obamasssss or some one like him did.

What we haven’t seen, and would certainly be appropriate, is, in view of her statements even before taking office, all of which indicated a very clear bias, what we haven’t seen yet, is anybody looking to see what crimes Letitia James has committed,prior to getting into her office. Any body want to bet how Simon-pure she is?

I wonder if Joe Biden will sue when his investigations start, and if the courts will treat him the same as they have Donald Trump.

If the GOP manages to get the majority in November, it’s payback time. Not revenge! But Justice! Hammer these subversives with every tool in the box. The difference of what they are doing and what the GOP would be doing is obvious to anyone with half a brain. The Dems are making up charges and the process of “investigating” is the hammer. The GOP will present the EVIDENCE ( and there’s plenty of it) of the wrong doing and pursue the justice .

I recall her making a statement before she was elected. She stated the only reason she was running was so she could put President Trump in prison. She also made comment about how she would do anything she had to, too make sure it happens. If Adam Schiff can manipulate text messages between a lawyer and a congressman and get by with it, what do you think she can do and get by with it also. Really does anyone believe President Trump would have run for office he was corrupt like her and DC. What tells me is the swamp has nothing on him so Hillary let several of her lawyers help James so could figure how how to rig a lawsuit against President Trump. Democrats can’t have President Trump in office again no matter what it takes to stop him. Swap is terrified he will run again and expose more corruption. If they get by with this by lying and falsifying records then we know just how dirty our government is. If AG Bragg was smart he would put a stop to it. I don’t believe James was actually elected fairly. We all know the rigged election game they have been playing for years. Enough is enough with this stupidity on the left and rhinos. We start voting them all out and get our America back before these idiots do any more harm to all of us. James should be disbarred for ethical reasons, and the rest of the judicial system that has got attitude of them being above the law. What happened to their oath they took? New Yorker’s should be furious over her spending their money on her vindictive goal. Yet she won’t hold real criminals accountable for their crimes including murders. Time for our laws to be upheld for all not just certain people.
