President Donald Trump scorched New York Attorney General Letitia James in an official statement made through his Save America PAC. He called her ongoing investigation into the Trump family’s business dealings a “continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in history” that “should not be allowed to continue.”
In February, the 45th president slammed James after a Manhattan judge ruled that Trump and two of his children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr., would be required to testify in her investigation related to the Trump Organization.
Both Ivanka and Don Jr. reportedly refused to comply with previous subpoenas issued by the attorney general’s office.
President Trump continued in his comments on the investigation on Tuesday, saying that he had sent over “millions of pages of documents, perhaps more than any person or entity has ever given before…”
He added, “There is nothing that can be done to satisfy the racist Attorney General of New York, failed Gubernatorial candidate Letitia James, or the New York State Courts which are biased, unyielding, and totally unfair.”
Trump also slammed rising crime in New York, calling it “rampant and record setting” and asserting that there had been a 42.8 percent increase in crime over the last year. “No wonder everyone is leaving the State, including businesses left and right,” he continued.
It is no secret that President Trump and his family have been ceaselessly investigated since 2016 on everything from allegations of Russian collusion to failed attempts at impeachment.
“It is a politically driven Scam the likes of which has never been seen before,” President Trump concluded in his comments. “If I wasn’t leading in every poll by substantial numbers, this persecution would have long ago ended. The good news is, I have done nothing wrong!”
