Should we feel sorry for Donald Trump now that wonder woman New York Attorney General (AG) Letitia James and others are breathing down his neck? Some say, normally that turns on the ex-president. But maybe not in this case.
The ex was reportedly frustrated with all the investigations facing him. He also resented all the attorneys who flew around like big horse flies and dive-bombed him, always asking for more money. And we know what horse flies hover over. Then, there was this.
Former New York City Mayor and former Trump fixer/personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has been breathing down his former boss’ neck, too. Apparently, Giuliani believed another great lie, well at least “great” in his mind, that 45 had any intentions of actually paying him.
The New York AG dropped the stunning news on America that her office was conducting a two-year criminal probe into the Trump Organization’s finances. She and Manhattan dynamo, Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. have joined forces in a criminal investigation. AG James sent two of her office’s attorneys to help Vance.
James has always spoken with a soft voice but she also wielded a huge stick. According to The Gotham Gazette, she said:
‘I was taught at Howard University that the law should be an instrument of change that the law must be used as a vehicle to right wrongs.’
‘[I will] never, ever waver in my fight to uphold and defend your basic rights, [and I am] vowing to oppose any harmful policies imposed by the federal government.’
The ex can be prosecuted for state laws even though he was president. The NY AG has also been conducting an ongoing civil investigation.
Manhattan dynamo, Attorney General Cyrus Vance Jr. is on Trump’s trail, too. According to Manhattan.org:
‘Since taking office in 2010, D.A. Vance has expanded the impact of the Manhattan District Attorney beyond the Office’s traditional courtroom role to encompass sustained investment in communities, reform of the criminal legal system, and the proactive prevention of cybercrime, terrorism, trafficking, and other 21st-century criminal threats.’
One source told The Daily Beast that Trump has been whining about the legal bills stacking up against him as “such a pain in the ass.” Apparently, the ex-president was worried the New York investigations could extend years into the future.
A close Trump advisor and his legal eagles tell him that he is not going to jail. Ah, another Big Lie:
‘I told him that he has nothing to worry about.’
After powerhouse Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. released the news he had convened a grand jury, Trump called it:
‘[This is] a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History. It began the day I came down the escalator in Trump Tower, and it’s never stopped.’
Former fixer/personal attorney Michael Cohen used to be one of the devoted satellites that floated around Trump. Then, the ex-president flung him back to earth. When Cohen looked around, he found himself sentenced to three years in a federal prison for Trump’s crime:
‘As more documents are reviewed by the NYAG and NYDA, it appears that the troubles for Donald Trump just keep on coming. Soon enough, Donald and associates will be held responsible for their actions.’
