On Tuesday, a surprise announcement was made by the SDNY attorney general’s office: subpoenas have been issued for two of Donald Trump’s children: Eric and Ivanka Trump. Attorney General Letitia James has been focused on a civil case against Trump and his company, The Trump Organization, a family business with a history of corruption.
Letitia you can not escape your own words. This is all window dressing for your abuse of office and ethical misconduct (which we are prosecuting you for) and northing more than a PR move to revive a political career after your gubernatorial disaster. @NewYorkStateAG https://t.co/7o5mlUp9PI pic.twitter.com/GXpIwThPDD

The twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice, as well as his children and his cronies, have pushed a narrative that anyone who investigates any of the many corrupt and illegal acts allegedly committed by Trump is doing so for partisan reasons, not to mention that they’re “sick,” “corrupt,” “angry,” “failed,” and “evil.” James, for instance, announced a bid for governor of New York, prompting calls by Republicans saying that her investigation of Trump is nothing but a political ploy. Donald Trump has clung to that narrative, but his son, Eric Trump, is taking his criticism even farther.
‘We are prosecuting you!’
Of course, there have been no alleged crimes committed by James, simply allegations that she has abused the office of the AG with a partisan investigation, which is debatable. Eric’s Twitter tantrum comes off as a “I know you are but what am I?” type of response, hilarious in its childishness, particularly when one remembers that in previous interviews with James, Eric Trump pleaded the fifth more than 500 times.
Twitter was relentless in their takedown of Eric and his whining about unfair investigations and his and his father’s lack of authority to prosecute anyone. Read some of their comments below:
