Former President Donald Trump revealed in a series of posts on Truth Social on Wednesday that he never thought New York Attorney General Letitia James would be filing a lawsuit against him. But all that changed in a single moment.
He wrote, “I never thought this case would come up – until I saw her really bad poll numbers.”
Trump offered his analysis of James’ move, characterizing it as a “failed AG.”
He wrote on Truth Social: “Another witch hunt by a racist Attorney General, Letitia James, who failed in her run for governor, received almost no support from the public and is now against the highly respected Michael, the Law & Order AG nominee. poorly performing Henry. I never thought this case would come up – until I saw her really bad poll numbers. She’s a con artist who’s been fighting on a ‘Get Trump’ platform despite the city being one of the most crime and homicide disasters in the world under her watch!”
He continued, “Attorney General Letitia ‘Peekaboo’ James, a total crime-fighting disaster in New York, spends all her time fighting for very powerful and well-represented banks and insurance companies that were paid in full and made big bucks. and never had a complaint about me instead of fighting murder and violent crime that is killing New York State. It’s a failed corporation whose lack of talent to fight crime is causing record numbers of people and businesses to flee New York. Bye!”

According to The Associated Press, James is filing a lawsuit against Trump and his three children Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump, as well as Trump Organization executives Allen Weisselberg and Jeffrey McConney.
In detailing the lawsuit obtained by AP, James argued that Trump and the Trump Organization “were involved in numerous acts of fraud and misrepresentation in the preparation of Mr. Trump’s annual financial statements (“Statements of Financial Condition.” “). Statements’) covering at least the years 2011 to 2021.”

James claimed, “These acts of fraud and misrepresentation have greatly inflated billions of dollars in Mr. Trump’s personal fortune, as stated in the statements, and have given financial counterparties false and misleading impressions of how the statements were prepared. “
The mechanism for these alleged “acts of fraud and misrepresentation” revolves around obtaining what James calls “overestimates” of Trump Organization property.

Trump followed up his first two posts addressing James with a third quote from a New York Times report on her case against him: “The New York Times: ‘Your (Peekaboo James) case against him could be severe to be proven. Real estate appraisals are often subjective and the financial statements include a (very strong) disclaimer.’ Many Thanks!”
The New York Times wrote in the report quoted by Trump: “Yet her case against him could be difficult to prove. Property appraisals are often subjective and the financial statements include a disclaimer that they have not been audited. And at trial, his attorneys will most likely point out that Deutsche Bank and his other lenders were hardly victims; All of his loans are either current or partially prepaid.”
The Times also reported that the Trump Organization said in a statement its lenders “gained handsomely — amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars in interest and fees.”
The statement called James’ actions “politics, pure and simple,” argued that she “put her own political ambitions ahead of the safety of New Yorkers,” and described it as “a heinous abuse of power, a waste of valuable resources and tens of millions of taxpayers’ dollars.”
According to Politico, Alina Habba, an attorney for Trump, responded, “Today’s filing is not focused on the facts or the law — rather, it is solely focused on advancing the Attorney General’s political agenda.”
She tweeted the same along with a series of video clips showing James lobbying for the prosecution of Trump.

“It is quite clear that the Attorney General’s office has exceeded its statutory authority by investigating transactions in which there has been absolutely no wrongdoing,” Habba continued, adding, “We are confident that our justice system will not condone this uncontrolled abuse of office.” and we look forward to defending our client against every single unsubstantiated allegation made by the Attorney General.”
