A favorite Trump strategy when faced with being held accountable for their actions is to attack the investigators. Robert Mueller’s team, who investigated the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, consisted of “12 angry Democrats.” Victims of Trump’s sexual harassment and sexual assault are ugly. The committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, 2021, are “partisan Democrats and two failed Republicans.” All of them are corrupt. All of them are politically motivated. And, of course, each and every one of them are lying, while the Trumps tell nothing but the truth.
It’s an obvious ploy, and one that won’t work with law enforcement.
America's most corrupt AG won't even directly respond to our motions about her political targeting of my family because she knows her actions are indefensible.
This is nothing more than political retribution from her on behalf of the entire Dem Party.

On Tuesday evening, news of subpoenas sent to the children of the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice were released to reporters. NY AG Letitia James, who is investigating the Trump Organization in a civil case, subpoenaed them in her probe of potential tax and bank fraud, which former Trump attorney Michael Cohen described in court by saying that “Mr. Trump inflated his total assets when it served his purposes, such as trying to be listed among the wealthiest people in Forbes, and deflated his assets to reduce his real estate taxes.”
A separate criminal investigation is also underway.
The Trumps will soon learn that the same tactics that worked for them politically will not work in a law enforcement case. Trump can’t have William Barr tell the country that there was “no collusion, no obstruction” found during the Mueller investigation despite clear statements in Mueller’s report that contradicted him. He can’t order the people who worked for him not to comply with those leading an investigation into his attempts to extort the Ukrainian government. Instead, he and his children will have to answer the subpoenas or go to jail.
Twitter was not at all sympathetic to poor Donald Trump, Jr. Read some of their comments below:
