Letitia James Fires Back At Trump’s New Lawsuit, Makes It Crystal Clear That Ex-President Doesn’t Get To “Dictate” If He Will Answer For His Actions: “No One Is Above The Law, Not Even Someone With The Name Trump”

You can't intimidate her, Donald.

Former President Donald Trump must really be feeling the heat over the investigations into his businesses and finances. On Monday, the twice-impeached one-term President launched a lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James. I don’t understand his line of thinking here. You can’t successfully sue someone for investigating you.  Still, Trump’s attorney argues that James is violating the former President’s constitutional rights, and his lawyers have long argued that the investigation was politically motivated. Furthermore, the lawsuit claims that James’ “mission is guided solely by political animus and a desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen who she views as a political opponent.”

James had a little something to say about that.

“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,” James said, according to CBS News.

And on Twitter, James made herself very clear.

Tish James’s investigation is civil; however, personnel from her office are also involved in a criminal inquiry of Trump and his company. The company and its CFO, Allen Weisselberg, have been charged in connection with that investigation, and Trump has not. Yet. And that’s why Donald is scared. He hasn’t been held accountable yet. It was fine when those close to him were held responsible, but he didn’t want to face the consequences of his actions.

Recently, Trump had to sit for a four-hour deposition under oath. Trump called it “baseless harassment of your favorite president.” I remember when the email lady sat for eleven hours to testify under oath without breaking a sweat. He needs to buckle up. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
