A top Democrat’s latest lawsuit against Donald Trump backfired for this huge reason
Democrats continue to believe the legal system is their only means of stopping Donald Trump.
It’s led to a six-year-long witch hunt.
And a top Democrat’s latest lawsuit against Donald Trump backfired for this huge reason.
New York Attorney General Letitia James went through with her campaign promise to sue Donald Trump.
James alleged Trump defrauded banks he received loans from by inflating the value of his assets.
None of the banks James alleged Trump defrauded claimed he did anything wrong.Fox News and slapped down James’ lawsuit as a “political hit job.”
“It’s hard for me not to conclude it’s a political hit job. This is a woman who campaigned for office promising she was going to go after Trump, which I think is a tremendous abuse of office to go headhunting and targeting individuals. So I think she was targeting Trump,” Barr began.
Barr said James’ three-year investigation into Trump amounted to a bogus civil lawsuit that doesn’t even really make a good legal argument that the former President defrauded financial institutions.
The former Attorney General also said that James targeting Trump’s children in the lawsuit showed it was more about exacting political revenge on him than anything else.
“This is after three years, a civil lawsuit, the gist of which is when the Trump organization borrowed money, Trump personally guaranteed those loans, and to support that, she’s claiming that he inflated his assets on his financial statements. I’m not even sure she has a good case against Trump himself, but what ultimately persuades me that this is a political hit job is she grossly overreaches when she tries to drag the children into this,” Barr added.
Barr explained that the financial statements James alleged contained fraudulent information belonged to Donald Trump and his children had no involvement in preparing them.
Going after Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka Trump was just vindictive.
“Yes, they had roles in the business, but this was his personal financial statement. It was prepared by the CFO, accounting firms were involved in it. The children aren’t going to know the details of that, nor are they expected in the real world to do their own due diligence and have it reviewed independently,” Barr continued.
Barr wrapped up by saying the lawsuit would backfire on James and the Democrats politically and in court.
“This to me looks like gross overreach, which I think is going to end up backfiring on them. I think it will make people sympathetic for Trump. This is another example of people piling on because of Trump derangement syndrome, you know, this strong entire to punish him,” Barr concluded.
