Former President Donald Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, appeared on Newsmax and promptly called New York Attorney General Letitia James a “sick person” who has “weaponized” her position to unfairly target her client with investigations. Habba told host Grant Stinchfield that they filed for an emergency injunction to stop James’s investigation.
“She is a sick person who really has taken her oath of office and just weaponized it,” Habba said.

According to Newsweek, the documents filed in a New York court allege that James has displayed a “shocking irreverence for her prosecutorial ethics” by frequently stating she intends to investigate Trump and expose any potential wrongdoings.
“In doing so, she has exposed the vindictive and self-serving nature of her actions — she is not serving any legitimate law enforcement interests but is merely seizing on an opportunity to harass, threaten, and retaliate against Trump, his family, and his associates,” the injunction states.
Trump has lashed out at James over her investigation over claims that the former President fraudulently inflated the value of some assets to get better loans from banks and undervalued them to reduce his tax bills.
“You are nothing but a corrupt official doing the dirty work of your party. You should not be in office. This could well be the reason you were just rejected by the people of NY in your inept run for governor,” he said in a statement in late December. “You didn’t quit for a higher purpose. You quit because your poll numbers were atrocious—you didn’t have a chance. New York got lucky!”
New Yorkers do not like the twice-impeached one-term President because they know he’s as crooked as a dog’s hind leg. People from the Big Apple can spot a con artist from a mile away. It wasn’t surprising that the Trumps moved out of the city to reside in Florida permanently. New Yorkers have been on to Trump for years. So, Tish James isn’t “sick.” She just knows who Trump is.
