Trump BLASTS Governor Cuomo over witch hunt subpoena

Trump is making it widely known that he is not happy about the Trump Organization receiving a subpoena from the State of New York AG’s office.

Tonight he ripped into Governor Cuomo and said he was now part of the ‘presidential harassers’ group:



 
The subpoena was from Letitia James who is the AG of New York.

Here’s more via the NY Post:

On Monday, James’ office subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank for records involving Trump’s failed bid to buy the Buffalo Bills and other business deals done by the Trump Organization.

The Deutsche Bank subpoena seeks loan applications, mortgages, lines of credit and other records of financial transactions in connection to a number of Trump hotels in the United States, the New York Times reported Monday.

New Jersey-based Investors Bank was subpoenaed for records connected to Trump Park Avenue. James also requested records linked to Trump’s attempts to buy the Bills in 2014.

On Tuesday, James lobbied lawmakers in Albany to loosen double-jeopardy laws that prohibit state prosecutors from bringing similar charges against individuals pardoned from federal charges.

James promised shortly after she won her election that she was going to target everything Trump. And now she’s doing just that, like a good fascist.

I would say this is ‘unfair’, but that word really doesn’t do it justice. To use the government to go after Trump’s company just because they hate that he’s president is about as un-American as it gets. I hope he fights every bit of this and gets protection from the courts.

Stalin’s Secret Police Chief Lavrentiy Beria: “Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg_Ydz-Kb8A

Investigate, subpoena, intimidate, threaten anyone related to Pres Trump, his family, his friends, any business enterprises, for what? To find a crime that doesn’t exist, so you manufacture 1, 2, or 30.. where the predicate basis for doing so is because it’s Pres Trump.

Time to start Federally charging these State Prosecutors with abuse of govt power for investigating criminal conduct without a predicate crime being committed as a reason of investigations, in this case a political witch hunt to destroy pres Trump, his family, his business, etc..

Welcome to the Democrat Party’s Secret Police State Branch – Govt Prosecutorial Law Enforcement, aka Unconstitutional govt abuse of power and authority for political end goal purposes

It’s called Stalinism

This is the other line of attack to try to get Trump out of office. Go after everything he has done in NY over the years, business or charity, searching for that hint of a crime that could possible get him impeached or make him resign. A very vindictive and mean-spirited move by the NY AG.

OK, so since apparently I’m the first person to ask… has there been any indication WHY they’re going after these particular documents? What it is they’re looking for in particular?

And please spare me the Trumpeating about “looking for anything they can find.” There has to be something specific they’re after, and I’m genuinely curious what it is.

Because if Trump Org IS doing something shady – and I’m inclined to believe that they do because of all the stories of grift, cons, and DC palm-greasing/swamp-dwelling we learned of back in 2015 – then yea, it should be investigated, shouldn’t it.

Howzabout we start with the promise by the NY AG that she “was going to target everything Trump?”

That seems like a good indicator of motive.

Unfortunately, NY has already proven they want to use government power for political causes when they started targeting banks and financial institutions to pressure them into refusing to loan money to gun manufacturers.

Why exactly do they deserve the benefit of the doubt?

Letitia James wants to be the attorney general that helps take down Donald Trump.

I so deeply despise my contemptuous and disdainful governor. I’ve been praying all of my adult life that we NYS residents can get out from under the grip of the uber corrupt marxist democrats. If we didn’t have Manhattan island attached to the upstate like a ball and chain the upstate would have a conservative governor.

Wow, this is unbelievable! Seizing records without a crime, looking to remove double jeopardy. The Left has removed the veil and now shows themselves for the hate-filled, vicious group that they are. Hate is truly evil and consumes the people who live with it. Hopefully, as many are predicting, this will turn against the Left. I have seen a lot of articles, comments, and discussions on the radio with so many people saying they are becoming supporters of Trump simply because of the injustice. Take it a step further, and if this can be done to the President of the United States, what’s to stop it from happening to any of us once he’s out of the way. This is terrifying! I and many here became Trump defenders against the lies that were said about him and then became supporters because he was actually governing the way he said he… Read more »

Doc, perhaps you should look at Trump in the present and forgive him of his past. That’s how it worked for me. Trump’s childish tweets seem to be the last thing to go, but even those are starting to sound more adult-like. Doing that is what has made me a supporter. Forgiveness, the world needs a lot more of it. It’s actually the most used word by Jesus in the Gospels, makes you wonder why.

Dr. StrangeloveDr. Strangelove Exactly, he is what he is. Even the liberal roots stuff which I don’t like is in line with who Trump said he was when running for President. I have to realize there has never been a president with whom I’ve completely agreed, and when I add that I have never seen in my life a politician try so hard to meet his campaign promises as Trump has, I’ll be happy to take the good, be sad and speak out against those things I don’t like, but I won’t condemn a man for governing the way he said he would. Even Blessed Ted has been disappointing me a lot of lot. Seems all that Potomac water he’s been drinking is slowly changing him, and not for the better. If I can still support Ted, I can support Trump.

So they have a valid crime in mind that they’re investigating or is this yet another BS Mueller-investigation where the worm around for a few years, find NOTHING, and then hurt people on the periphery with unrelated indictments? It’s persecution. It’s unlawful. It IS fascism. I don’t know what course of action is appropriate here – it would be nice if Trump could sue them over this (1 Billion ought to cover it)… but I don’t know what legal avenues he can take. It sets an awful precedent. Maybe the DOJ can investigate Cuomo and/or James? Maybe cut off federal funds? This IS evil!

No. One of our illustrious previous governors (two governors ago) went down for prostitution / trafficking across state lines or some such. The one after went down for something else and ended up withdrawing before the election, but blamed racism. While cuomoron ended a state level ethics investigation before it got close to him, but not before it took out others in the state.
