Letitia James has no intention of backing off Donald Trump, and that’s good
Trump’s lawsuit, filed in federal court after James requested that Trump sit for a Jan. 7 deposition, says the probe has violated his rights in a “thinly-veiled effort to publicly malign Trump and his associates.”
“Her mission is guided solely by political animus and a desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen who she views as a political opponent,” said the lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of Trump and his company, the Trump Organization.
In a statement, James said: “To be clear, neither Mr. Trump nor the Trump Organization get to dictate if and where they will answer for their actions. Our investigation will continue undeterred because no one is above the law, not even someone with the name Trump.”
She then dropped the mic and resumed being fabulous.
If America is ever to be a nation of laws, we need people like Letitia James–people who willl enforce the law fairly, uphold the law mightily, and seek justice rightly. Donald Trump cannot be above the law. If he is, we have no law at all.
