This week, the rather zealous New York AG, Letitia James, declared that she had launched a massive lawsuit against Trump, insisting that his business “inflated valuations” for a decade.
“[Trump] used fraudulent and misleading asset valuations over 200 times in 10 years on his annual financial statements,” James asserted.
Bear in mind that James was elected after promising to spend most of her time in office chasing after Trump, which doesn’t really appear to align with the state’s most immediate needs.
Nonetheless, James decided that harassment of a private citizen who resides in Florida needed to be the central focus of her “service” to the public.
Which is precisely why Bill Barr has shredded James’s brazenly obvious efforts to personally destroy Trump.
“It would seem that her goal is to eviscerate the family business. What do you think of what she’s doing?” Barr queried.
Indeed, the penalties sought by James are severe, as reported by the Daily Wire.
“The lawsuit seeks to punish the targets with a $250 million penalty and a ban on operating any businesses in New York. James also seeks to ban Trump and the Trump organization from purchasing any real estate in New York for the next five years. The New York attorney general is also referring her investigation into Trump to the Department of Justice for criminal charges,” the outlet noted.
If only the same enthusiasm could have been applied to investigating Hunter Biden’s human trafficked prostitutes from Ukraine and Russia, not to mention all the various ways in which his assets were “inflated.”
Especially since those kinds of assets presently threaten national security.
Thus, Barr chalks James’s antics up to nothing more than “a political hit job.”
“It’s hard for me not to conclude it’s a political hit job. And this is a woman who campaigned for office saying that – promising she was going to go after Trump, which I think is a tremendous abuse of office to go head-hunting and targeting individuals,” Barr drawled.
Seriously. What kind of campaign centers entirely on attacking another person?
“So, I think she was targeting Trump,” Barr affirmed, stating the obvious, “and this is, after three years, a civil lawsuit, the gist of which is that, when the Trump Organization borrowed money, Trump personally guaranteed those loans.”
In other words, James thinks the most pressing issue New York currently faces pertains to Trump’s past business loans. As if those loans have anything to do with New Yorkers’ daily existence.
“And to support that, she’s claiming that he inflated his assets on his financial statements,” Barr continued, “now, I’m not even sure she has a good case against Trump himself. But what ultimately persuades me that this is a political hit job is, she grossly overreaches when she tries to drag the children into this.”
That’s right. And that move demonstrated the real level of her antipathy.
“Yes, they had roles in the business, but this was his personal financial statement. It was prepared by the CFO,” Barr noted, “accounting firms were involved in it. The children aren’t going to know the details of that and be able – and nor are they expected in the real world to do their own due diligence and have it reviewed independently.”
Well, the Trump family has never been held up to “real world” standards; it’s been held up to corrupt Clinton and mainstream media “standards,” all of whom had a very vested interest in MAGA never occurring.
Unfortunately for them, but fortunately for freedom, it did.
“This, to me, looks like gross overreach, which I think is going to end up backfiring on them, because I think it will make people sympathetic for Trump, that this is another example of people piling on because of Trump Derangement Syndrome, this strong desire to punish him,” Barr concluded.
“Gross overreach” is probably one of the nicest ways to put it …
