New York Attorney General Letitia James doesn’t care about the safety of the people of her state, but only about her vendetta against anyone with the last name Trump, former President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law said Thursday.
Appearing on Fox & Friends to react to AG James’ announcement Wednesday that she had filed a lawsuit seeking $250 million in damages from Donald Trump and members of his family, including her husband, Lara Lea Trump noted that James ran for office by promising, not to make New York safer, but to prosecute Donald Trump.
“Obviously, Letitia James is a deranged individual. You just saw those clips, right there,” Mrs. Trump said, reacting to video clips of remarks by James:
“Obviously, Letitia James is a deranged individual. You just saw those clips, right there.
“She ran for attorney general, not on getting gangs and violent criminals off the street, not on making sure that drugs weren’t rampant, not on making New York state a safe place for people to raise their families and for the elderly to live.
“She ran on solely on taking down Donald Trump. That has been her focus and after investigating my father-in-law, his company, and my entire family for three years and combing through apparently millions of documents, the best she could come up with was no criminal charge, of course, but a civil lawsuit against, you know, my father-in-law, my husband, and my and his siblings.”
“And, it's absolutely outrageous to see this when you have New York crumbling, whenever you see the number of people who are fleeing that state every day because they do not feel it has been a safe place to live,” she said, calling James an embarrassment to her office:
“It’s absolutely disgraceful and disgusting. She is derelict in her duty, as far as I'm concerned, and the office of the attorney general. She is an embarrassment to herself, of the office and of the United States of America.”
Constitutional scholar and political pundit Mark Levin agrees. On Wednesday Levin said that "Democrat hacks," like AG James, are abusing their prosecutorial powers to target Donald Trump and his family.
AG James even went after her husband when he was 22 years old and started a charity that raised $30 million for the kids at Saint Jude Children’s Hospital, Mrs. Trump explained:
“My husband started a charity to raise money for kids at Saint Jude Children's Hospital when he was 22 years old. He raised $30 million for the kids at Saint Jude - and Letitia James has such vitriol and hatred for anyone with the last name Trump that she decided to investigate my husband's charity, despite the fact that it had one of the lowest expense ratios of any private charity in America.
“And, unfortunately, guess who was hurt by that? It wasn’t my husband. It was the kids of Saint Jude’s.
“Who knows how many kids have died unnecessarily thanks to her investigation and just vitriol and hatred of anyone with the last name Trump?”
