Donald Trump sues NY Attorney General Letitia James claiming she's abused...• https://www.dailymail.co, By ALEX HAMMER
Donald Trump has announced that he is suing New York Attorney General Letitia James, challenging the prosecutor's own suit against the ex-president and his business, demanding $250million in damages.
Trump, 76, aired the lawsuit in an impassioned post to his Truth Social platform Wednesday night, in which he called the attorney general 'corrupt' and 'bias,' and New York 'one of the most crime-ridden places on earth.'
Trump further charged that James, who aired plans last year to run for governor against Kathy Hatchel in the upcoming election but backed out after failing to raise the necessary funds, has done little to protect New York against rampant crime.
Instead, the suit states the prosecutor has engaged in a senseless 'war of intimidation and harassment' through her office's investigation into Trump's Big Apple-based real estate company, which James charges skirted taxes for 15 years.
Filed in Florida circuit court Wednesday evening, the lawsuit states James abused her position 'to pursue a relentless, pernicious, public, and unapologetic crusade against' the ex-president, who currently resides in Palm Beach County, Florida.
