Former President Trump filed a lawsuit against New York’s Attorney General Letitia James in federal court. Trump is attempting to halt the continued witch hunt which has become an obsession with the emotionally deranged Democrat ever since he announced his candidacy for the Oval Office back in June of 2015.
James has a long and sordid history of vilifying the former president, dating back to that famed escalator ride at Trump Tower. The 63-year old progressive Democrat began waging a disinformation campaign while campaigning for attorney general, insisting that then President Trump was an illegitimate president and, if given the opportunity, she would file charges against him without a shred of actual evidence to back up her claim.

Trump, his family, and in her words, "anybody in his orbit" to go on the attack not because she's the Attorney General, but because she's a Democrat. pic.twitter.com/AQNHfEGjbM— Trump War Room (@TrumpWarRoom) December 21, 2021
Newly elected James made good on her vendetta against the former president, who at the time issued the following statement regarding the bogus charges.
“The Attorney General of New York literally campaigned on prosecuting Donald Trump even before she knew anything about me. She said that if elected, she would use her office to look into ‘every aspect’ of my real estate dealings. She swore that she would ‘definitely sue’ me. She boasted on video that she would be, and I quote, ‘a real pain in the ass.’ She declared, ‘just wait until I’m in the Attorney General’s office,’ and, ‘I’ve got my eyes on Trump Tower.’ She also promised that, if elected, she would ‘join with law enforcement and other Attorney Generals across this nation in removing this President from office,’ and, ‘It’s important that everyone understand that the days of Donald Trump are coming to an end.’”
On Monday, the former president’s attorney filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of New York. The lawsuit argues that James’ inquiry into Trump’s business dealings, which has lasted for more than two years, has violated the former president’s constitutional rights.
“Letitia James targets President Trump with a callous disregard for the ethical and moral obligations she swore to abide by when she became Attorney General,” Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, said in a statement Monday.
She added, “She has short changed the state by commencing this partisan investigation and has forever tarnished the sanctity of her office.”
Habba said that by filing the lawsuit Monday, Trump’s legal team intends “to not only hold her accountable for her blatant constitutional violations, but to stop her bitter crusade to punish her political opponents in its tracks.”
The fishing expedition by the attorney General is reminiscent of how Democrats have used and abused their power in attempting to unseat a duly elected president with falsified documents and illegal impeachment proceedings.
Earlier this month, James attempted the same scam in seeking the former president’s testimony in a deposition scheduled for January 7th, which the former president declined, well aware of how the perjury trap was used successfully by the Justice Department against former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
After the lawsuit was filed, James released a statement slamming the filing as yet another “delay” in her probe.
“The Trump Organization has continually sought to delay our investigation into its business dealings and now Donald Trump and his namesake company have filed a lawsuit as an attempted collateral attack on that investigation,” James said in the statement Monday.
The NY Attorney General went on to add, “To be clear, neither Mr. Trump nor the Trump Organization get to dictate if and where they will answer for their actions. Our investigation will continue undeterred because no one is above the law, not even someone with the name Trump.”
