New York Attorney General Letitia James Must Resign — and Be Prosecuted for Abuse of Power

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Letitia James, the radical far-left Attorney General of New York City who is running for re-election on a platform of getting Trump, filed a $250 million lawsuit on Sept. 21 accusing the Trump Organization of vast fraud for allegedly falsely inflating the net worth of President Donald J. Trump by manipulating the value of some of his prized assets — including his numerous golf courses, hotels, and homes.

Trump, who has dismissed the suit as a “witch hunt,” blasted James for going after his company while violent crime surges in New York City at the rally recently from Macomb Community College in Warren, Michigan.

He told the crowd in Warren that he has done “nothing wrong” and that “There’s no victim except Trump,” in the case.

“They’re all attacking me including the racist AG, attorney general, in New York, whose state is falling apart from murders, rapes, robberies, drug deals and every other kind of form of record-breaking crime,” the 45th president said.

“The homeless are sadly but dangerously roaming all over the streets of New York City and the city is filthy as is this racist AG. She is just as bad as you’re going to get.”

And Trump is not alone in their assessment of James’ actions against Trump.

“Her anti-Trump lawsuit is a staggering criminalization of politics,” Jeffrey Lord reported for the American Spectator, adding in his brilliant Op-ed, slamming James in no uncertain terms:

While running for attorney general in 2018, James made prosecuting then-President Donald Trump her major campaign promise as she sought to replace the disgraced Schneiderman. Said James in a campaign video:

I will never be afraid to challenge this illegitimate president…. I believe that this president is incompetent. I believe that this president is ill-equipped to serve in the highest office of this land. And I believe that he is an embarrassment to all that we stand for.

And just how was she going to accomplish her “challenge”? Said she:

As the next attorney general of his home state … I will be shining a bright light into every dark corner of his real estate dealings, and every dealing, demanding truthfulness at every turn.

Got all that? There was Letitia James, making her major campaign promise for New York’s top legal position the prosecution of a private citizen of New York state for no other reason than her personal and political hatred of him.

Now come the new headlines this week. Using her powers as attorney general, James has filed a $250-million lawsuit against the former president and three of his five children — Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — and the Trump Organization itself.

Let’s be blunt again.

This attorney general of New York is a staggering crook. She is criminalizing politics — using the powers of the office of attorney general to pursue a personal political vendetta. And in doing so, she has instantly cast herself and her conduct into the same seriously crooked position that forced her predecessors’ resignations.

Make no mistake.

America in the Biden era is turning into a police state, with Democrats using the powers of their respective offices to prosecute political opponents.

The New York Post’s Miranda Devine has turned up the news in a story headlined this way:

FBI hero paying the price for exposing unjust ‘persecution’ of conservative Americans

Devine reports this: 

Bombshell allegations by FBI Special Agent Steve Friend contained in a whistleblower complaint filed late Wednesday with the Department of Justice inspector general reveal a politicized Washington, DC, FBI field office cooking the books to exaggerate the threat of domestic terrorism, and ­using an “overzealous” January 6 ­investigation to harass conservative Americans and violate their constitutional rights.

Friend, 37, a respected 12-year veteran of the FBI and a SWAT team member, was suspended Monday, stripped of his gun and badge, and escorted out of the FBI field office in Daytona Beach, Fla., after complaining to his supervisors about the violations.

He was declared absent without leave last month for refusing to participate in SWAT raids that he believed violated FBI policy and were a use of excessive force against Jan. 6 ­subjects accused of misdemeanor ­offenses.

This comes on the heels of repeated stories of the seriously politicized FBI and Department of Justice’s running around the country and issuing subpoenas to one Trump supporter after another to confiscate their cellphones. Among those who have had their phones confiscated are a United States congressman — Pennsylvania’s Scott Perry — and Mike Lindell, Mr. MyPillow himself.

That doesn’t even count the FBI raid on the home of a former president of the United States — Trump’s Florida club, Mar-a-Lago.

Now comes Letitia James. In her filing a lawsuit against a political foe she detests, James has made herself the New York face of this Stasi-style, decidedly criminal abuse of power.

For which she should resign — or be impeached.

And prosecuted- Lord reported.
