Eric Trump has announced that his family has “filed suit” against New York’s Attorney General Letitia James in the state’s Supreme Court.
President Donald Trump’s son said in a statement:
“Today our family filed suit in NY Supreme Court outlining the illegal & blatantly unethical behavior of Attorney General Letitia James.
“It is ‘third-world’ prosecutorial misconduct and her viciousness is truly embarrassing to the great state of New York.”
In an interview after filing the suit, Eric Trump said: “This is the opportunistic targeting of a political opponent during a campaign year.
“Letitia James is not working on behalf of the Attorney General’s office, she is working for the DNC and using the resources of the State of New York to further her own political ambition.
“This conduct is an embarrassment to New York.
“Last week an 11-month-old girl was shot in the face on New York streets, crime is absolutely rampant, homelessness is through the roof, two brave law enforcement officers were just executed and 1.9% of New Yorkers have fled the state in the last 12 months.
“Yet Letitia’s sole focus, and all the resources of her office, remains on getting Donald Trump — the leader of the Republican Party.”
The lawsuit says:
“Letitia James’s statements have improperly and repeatedly threatened investigation and prosecution of former President Trump and his family as a campaign promise to garner votes, money, and support, and now, as Attorney General, to gain political support.
“Starting from the time she announced her candidacy for Attorney General in May 2018 – well before she could have seen any evidence or known any facts – Ms. James made clear that she despised Donald Trump’s politics and policies and made ‘taking on Donald Trump’ the focal point of her campaign.”
Trump family lawyer Alina Habba said:
“Letitia James is not serving the people of the state of New York.
“She is focused solely on furthering her own political agenda.
“As evident by her distracting responses to our papers, the OAG has no defense for her egregious and unethical conduct.
“Today, we submitted to the court her statements for the world to hear.
“This conduct is an embarrassment to the New York State bar and our legal system.
“We will continue to fight vehemently to make sure that this type of viewpoint discrimination never happens to another person again.
“This is truly prosecutorial misconduct and, in her own words, ‘no one is above the law,” she said.

“The Trump-obsessed Letitia James openly campaigned on a promise to falsely prosecute the Trump organization. Soros-funded prosecutors like Ms. James should not only be disbarred; they should also be in prison.” The Washington Times https://t.co/gXRlSo0qWr
