As you likely know, the witch hunt to destroy former President Donald Trump and his entire family and organization continues. Even though he is no longer in office and may never be again, there are those on the political left who seem bound and determined to make it their life’s mission to bury him.
Well, anything they can possibly think of. You name it, and they’ve tried it. Of course, nothing so far has stuck. But unlike reasonable people, these deranged few aren’t about to give in and conclude that no wrongs have been done. Instead, they’ll dig in their heels even farther, claiming they just haven’t found the burning match yet.
One of the loudest of these voices is that of New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is responsible for seeing that former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned before his term was up.
Now, to be clear, James has been after Trump for years, basically since he first announced his run for the White House in 2015. It was then that the political left began mounting an assault on his personal life and business that, if they succeed, would supposedly ruin the Trump family name and organizations.
Here we are some six years later, and James is still looking into the Trump Organization and trying to find even the smallest measure of illegality to pin on the former president. In fact, James is so obsessed with her plans that she has now officially said goodbye to her chances at becoming New York’s governor in the coming year, something many assumed was part of her reason for going after Cuomo in the first place. James had announced last year that she would be running to replace Cuomo and seemed very excited about it.
However, recently she changed her mind, deciding instead to keep moving on her investigation into Trump.
According to the Washington Post, James believes fraud exists in the Trump Organization and wants to figure out just how “permeated the Trump Organization” is with it.
As part of the process, James recently called a number of the Trump family children in for questioning at her New York office, as well as Donald Trump himself.
But Trump has been unwilling to comply thus far. The meeting between Trump and James was requested for January 7, but Trump has made no secret of the fact that he will not be in attendance. According to him and his staff, “this is another political witch-hunt” he will not be a part of.
And now, it seems his children have followed suit, or at least some of them.
Both Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. have stated that they will not be complying with the subpoenas, which is their legal right. And, in fact, both also plan to file motions to squash the requests.
According to ABC News, there has even been a jointly filed document by both the Trump Organization attorney and James’ office that a “dispute has arisen” between the parties involved about the subpoenas.
Of course, this isn’t the only play Letitia has up her corrupt sleeve. As Ronald Fischetti explained to the Post, James, beyond working through her own investigation, is helping out Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr, who has been overseeing another probe into the Trump organization for a number of years – again to no avail.
The outlet explains that both James and Vance believe Trump was illegally giving property tax officers low values while at the same time impressing lenders or getting tax breaks with higher ones. But so far, nothing has been found to prove that.
The only crime the Trump Organization has against them so far comes to us from July, when its longtime CFO Allen Weisselberg, along with the company, was charged with fraud for allegedly giving him “fringe benefits” that were not reported on their taxes. However, both the Trump Organization and Weisselberg have pleaded not guilty and are fighting the charges.
Meanwhile, the country is facing some of the greatest crises we’ve ever seen, including the rights of people everywhere being trampled on by lockdowns and mandates. And yet, all James is worried about is the possibility that Trump might have filed his taxes wrong…
