Donald Trump Jr. Blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday night, accusing her of “political persecution”.

Trump Jr. made his remarks in an interview on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News.

Just two weeks ago, James announced that her investigation into the Trump Organization is no longer purely civil in nature… but are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA.”

TRUMP JR: “I think everyone has been trying to figure that out for five years. I think it’s a political persecution, and I know that because she literally campaigned on it. She was going to investigate the crimes. The problem is it wasn’t as though she was a part of this office, she had no idea.

But in New York, it’s okay to try to persecute your political enemies, to try to target them, to try to hurt them. And they’ve been doing that for over five years. So five years, no actual crime. They are in search of a crime. They’ve been trying to investigate to create a crime because that’s what you’re doing in New York.

Again, shouldn’t surprise us anymore. But if this was going on in a banana republic, we’d be outraged. When it’s going on and one of the largest states in America, everyone seems to be silent on it. And there’s plenty of video out there for people to see, it was literally a campaign promise based on no information, based on no actual knowledge, just that you can do that in New York because it’s a Democrat-controlled state.

There’s nowhere you can go. There’s no one you can appeal to because what you end up with is another leftist judge making the decision and they’re just fine going after their political enemies as well.”

  1. 147: You seem quite upset about the New York AG pursuing some long overdue oversight of the Trump organization shenanigans and potential criminal activity. Even if Daddy is correct that an ex President is immune for life from any criminal indictment (something that even his own lawyers ridicule) the Little Donald and others in the mishpacha may still have to look forward to a few years in public housing.

  2. Trump was the best President in US history.. which caused overflowing rivers of jealousy hatred and venom against him.. And making his return to the White House an probable impossibility.

  3. Mr. “Gadolhadorah”, it is obvious that you don’t have any real insight into business law and practice, because then you would surely understand how cooked up these charges are and what a case of potiical hyper prosecution (read “persecution”) this is.

    It’s also obvious that you are a political fascist due to the fact that you have no issue with there not being any balance or proportion with how the Justice Dept. and FBI have been acting since Obama was Preskdrnt

  4. Your comment is awaiting moderation

    Tell me, Mr. “Gadolhadorah”, we know how Trump got rich but how on earth did the Clinton’s earn their gazillions? What goods or services were rendered for them to attain that largesse? Hmm? Something tells me that you couldn’t care less. You’re a corrupt fascist reprobate and I hate your style.
