Democrat Officials Abuse Offices, Hitting Trump, DeSantis With Political Lawfare

"Tish" James fulfilled a campaign promise she made to abuse her office to persecute Donald Trump and his family.


New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed suit against former President Donald Trump, three of his adult children and his business empire, accusing them of large-scale fraudulent financial practices and seeking to bar them from real estate transactions for the next five years.

The attorney general's civil suit alleges more than a decade of deception, including billions of dollars in falsified net worth, as part of an effort by Trump to minimize his companies' tax bills while winning favorable terms from banks and insurance companies.

...

Trump has repeatedly asserted that James, a Democrat running for a second term in November, is on a political vendetta, noting that during her 2018 campaign for AG she repeatedly vowed to pursue legal action against Trump and said he should be "scared" if she was elected. During her campaign, James promised to target Trump for investigation and told voters her election would bring pressure on him similar to that posed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

This is Politico, so:


Trump had fought efforts to force his deposition in the NY AG's case, but lost a series of court challenges on the issue. When he finally appeared for questioning last month, he invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination more than 440 times, an aide to James said.

"When your family, your company, and all the people in your orbit have become the targets of an unfounded, politically motivated Witch Hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors, and the Fake News Media, you have no choice," Trump said in a statement explaining why he took the Fifth despite numerous past comments he'd made about such a move signaling guilt.

Yeah, why would Trump imagine that he's been targeted by abusive prosecutors who are just out to get him? I mean, they're just on videotape literally telling people to vote for them so they can sue Trump.

Literally:

Is that allowed? Making a political campaign promise to abuse your office to persecute a political foe?

Why no, it's not. At NeoNeo, Alan Derschowitz says it's a cause for recusal. She can't be involved in the case, give that she's announced a conflict of evidence -- she promised to sue Trump whether there was evidence against him or not, as a political plank of her candidacy.

The first move former President Donald Trump's attorneys should do to fight back against New York Attorney General Letitia James' civil lawsuit against him and his family members is to push that she be recused and disqualified from the case, Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said on Newsmax Wednesday after her announcement.

"I like Letitia James," Dershowitz said on Newsmax's "American Agenda." "She's a very nice person, but she campaigned on the promise to get Trump before seeing any evidence, and so she is just fulfilling a campaign promise. You can't have prosecutors even civilly prosecute a defendant if they made a campaign promise."

And it can't be a sham recusal either, as Kim Foxx executed, where she "recused" herself while having her subordinate, who continued reporting to her, arrange to let Jussie Smollett off the hook.

I've been wondering: How can the state sue for Trump allegedly "defrauding" banks? The banks do not allege fraud -- the "victims" do not allege they've been victimized.

What the hell kind of rogue prosecution is it where the prosecution claims that a non-complaining non-victim is a victim but they just don't know it, and then sues on "the victim's" behalf?

Viva Frei is wondering about that, too.

tishjamesidontneednostinkingvictims.jpg

The banks do not complain they were defrauded, and also profited from the deals. They were not "defrauded" of any money. They were not defrauded of anything. Nothing was taken from them by trickery.

But Tish James is going to sue to "make them whole" anyway.

Kurt Schlichter thinks she filed this suit just in time for her own reelection bid -- and that it won't survive long past that.


Kurt Schlichter
@KurtSchlichter

Here's how the NY AG civil lawsuit will go....


Once Trump is served, he takes a few weeks to respond. He probably cannot remove the case since there are NY defendants, so no diversity. Now we're in mid-October. He moves to dismiss.

He means remove the case to federal court, but that requires "maximum diversity" of all parties in a suit, who must all be from different states. That's not the case, so he can't do that.


I have only skimmed this dog's breakfast of a complaint, but what popped out at me for the parts I looked are were the lack of damages allegations, much less ones against NY, the plaintiff. You cannot sue if you did not suffer a loss. None are pleaded in the parts I looked at.

Other causes of action may have damages allegations - we'll see. But there are plenty of other grounds to move to dismiss that just leap off the page.


Let's get real - if they thought they had Trump they would have filed a criminal case, but they have to prove that beyond a reasonable doubt. A civil suit is a preponderance of the evidence. They had no criminal case. They chose civil "fraud" to impress dumb people.


So, the initial motion to dismiss will not be heard before the midterm - the real mission was accomplished by filing suit in time to influence the election, but not so early that this garbage case could be tossed out before the election.

I expect the case will be dropped or tossed after a couple motion to dismiss rounds. Maybe there will be a small, piddling settlement the AG will claim is a victory. It's not a real lawsuit. It's lawfare. And I hope red AGs are taking note of the new rules.

Don't worry -- they're not, by and large. They're just punching the clock until they can get appointed to a corporate board somewhere. They don't want to upset the Marxist-Corporate Oligarchy.

Clay Travis
@ClayTravis

So New York's Democrat AG spent years investigating Trump and was only able to charge him with civil violations -- not criminal -- 48 days before her own election? This is an embarrassingly political prosecution, even for Democrats.

Democrats are desperate to put Trump on the ballot in the midterm because otherwise they have to defend Biden's failures on inflation/economy, the border and crime.

Meanwhile, a sheriff in Bexar County, Texas is investigating DeSantis for "crimes" in transporting illegals to Martha's Vineyards.

What crimes? He doesn't know.

Some crimes, though.

DeSantis' team wrote back to that sheriff noting that 53 illegals died in the back of a truck in his jurisdiction just months ago. And that the 50 illegals sent to Martha's Vineyard are all alive and healthy.

This sheriff, Salazar, went on to recommend that Texas restaurants hire the illegals to wait tables -- illegally, because, you know, they're not allowed to work.

But what is "the law" to a sheriff anyway?


As to the illegal aliens who are suing DeSantis -- put up to it by Marxist lawyers -- claiming that their rights as citizens under the 14th Amendment were violated (what?), here's one of the complaints:


Judd Legum
@JuddLegum

"Upon arrival in Martha's Vineyard, Plaintiff Yanet Doe felt helpless, defrauded, and desperate. She started crying. She felt anxious and confused. As a result, she suffered from lack of sleep and vertigo."

Oh, she felt defrauded?

Your honor, I'd like to enter into evidence my client's Feels.

You know, fraud requires that you're actually defrauded of some tangible thing. What was swindled from them? They got a free trip to a destination hot-spot that they wanted to go to. In what way have they been made materially poorer?

If they say "We don't like being here," well, you can get on another plane. Are you saying you want to be compensated for four hours of time in the air?

Seems to be a pattern here of claims of "fraud," where the alleged victims were not actually defrauded of anything.

Oh, and you'll never guess who's funding the activists filing this ludicrous stunt lawsuit.

Go ahead, guess.

Yeah that's right, I thought you'd guess it.


The activist group at the center of a class-action lawsuit against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Florida officials for migrant flights to Martha's Vineyard has received nearly $1.4 million from George Soros' Open Society network.

The good news is, you're well-informed and capable of inductive reasoning.

The bad news is, you're antisemitic.

By the way, via Brett T. at Twitchy, we're now officially in the "DeSantis is so evil that he makes us miss the reasonable, considered moderation of Donald Trump phase" of Democrat media operations.


desantismuchworsethantrump.jpg

Yes, when viewed from the perspective of partisan media, DeSantis looks almost unstoppable. But to a typical person -- someone who may have heard about these stunts but doesn't know much about DeSantis otherwise -- he looks a lot like a bully, someone willing to play high-stakes games with people's lives for the sake of his own ego and advancement.

Well, you might say, Donald Trump is a bully, too. Yes, he is. But Donald Trump is also a lifelong celebrity with a public persona that is as much about "The Apprentice" and even "Home Alone 2" as it is about his political career. What's more, Trump has the skills of a celebrity. He's funny, he has stage presence, and he has a kind of natural charisma. He can be a bully in part because he can temper his cruelty and egoism with the performance of a clown or a showman. He can persuade an audience that he's just kidding -- that he doesn't actually mean it.

So Trump is MAGA for the showmanship of it, but Redrum DeathSanguination is a True Believer Cultist of MAGA and thus much more evil and dangerous?

You sold me.

However, once the case is accepted into court, when it should be tossed immediately, due to lack of standing, we'll have some newly minted citizens.

No bank takes people at their word! They research the land, the deal, and the expected returns with THEIR OWN PEOPLE!!

I don't think it's outlandish to believe that Democrats are being driven by The Curley Effect on multiple levels, and one of those levels is the running of the Democratic Party itself.

108 How Texas' abortion ban hurts Big Oil's effort to transform its workforce ...
Posted by: sniffybigtoe at September 23, 2022 12:16 PM (UuD2k)
++++
From that article:
Oil companies have spent millions to counter the frayed image of fossil fuels and recruit a younger and more diverse workforce. ... Over half of women between 18-44 years and 45% of college-educated male and female workers would not consider a job in a state that banned abortion, according to a survey ... "It has always been difficult to attract women into oil and gas," said Sherry Richard, a 40-year oil industry veteran most recently human resources chief at offshore driller Transocean Ltd (RIGN.S). "When you create an environment that is unfriendly to women, it just makes it harder," ... Some California members of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) have declined to attend the group's conference in Houston in October ...

Look at the dodge. This is about young and middle-aged white women, not "diversity" as it has come to mean. Oil and gas companies apparently want more women - especially college-educated white women - but can't recruit them. But it *can* blame Abbott for the recruitment "problem."

I just believe a few things.

The second is that Trump is going to announce on Wednesday November 9, and by doing that he's going to hoover up 75% of all the GOP money men within days (the remaining 25% will be funding hilariously bad "centrist" candidates in order to try to take out Trump like Liz Cheney). The third is that DeSantis isn't going to run in 2024.

135 124 I put up a Trump 2020 sign (minus the Pence, of course) in front of my house on Sunday. I thought it would have been pulled by Monday.

Good news: it's Friday, and the sign is still there.
Bad news: someone ran over the sign with their car on Wednesday. I put it right back up, though.

The fact that it's still up tells me that local CT people, in general, are really, really tired of Biden.

136 We have been punching trump too hard and he might not run in 24. We think we can beat trump in a presidential election, but not DeSantis. So we better redirect fire on Ron and back off Don for a bit. Make sure Trump stays in for 24.

175 This is like all the problems in this country. Republican AGs are too busy actually doing their jobs, to focus on partisan cases that while we'd love to see prosecuted, don't necessarily help the greater good. On the other hand Dems are ignoring important cases (like the fbi ignoring child sex abuser cases) to focus solely on political prosecutions, because dems are worthless scum that would rather see their enemies harmed or embarrassed, than putting away actual bad people.

DeSantis, Abbott, and hopefully soon Lake (and other Republican governors with Republican AGs) should start asking from their legislature for more money to hire people for the AGs office, just to start acting like Dems and focusing solely on ruininflg the lives of Dems, because Democrats need to start suffering from thier own interpretation of the rules.

Posted by: Warai-otoko
---------------------------
More to the point of liability but that might be eliminated if you have warnings out depending on the state. Much of the laws revolve around obviously lethal booby traps as innocents could be affected.
But such things as barbed razor wire etc. are allowed which are booby traps in a way. Caltrops are kind of in a gray area if on your property (and out of the right of way) as they are not per se lethal (parking garages use a variant of it to stop exits for example) and one would not expect people to be driving through your yard anyway so accidental damage to the car might not be foreseeable. FWIW, there is a whole category of caselaw involving mailboxes as to what is allowed or not as far as design and construction to prevent people from trashing your mailbox.

Probably easier and safer just to put a game camera out to capture pictures of the car doing it.

Conversely, Democrats are more trusted on health care, the coronavirus, protecting Medicare and Social Security, and voting rights.”..."Sixty-one percent of Democrats say they’re very or extremely enthusiastic, compared to 57% of Republicans.”

No question on abortion. Honestly Democrats have proven that they are much better with the economy, crime, border security and national security. I truly have no trust in polls since majority are conducted by Republicans and reported by Republican run media.

How in the name of Roosevelt do Republicans get trusted on immigration, economics and security? They have blocked every immigration reform that comes up, the economy nearly always does better under Democrats (particularly for working class folks). And national security, when their top dog steals and lies about classified government documents and appoints traitors to top level security positions?

Heh.
Think that would qualify as a genuine booby trap.
Aside from criminal laws restricting lethal booby traps, much of the risk comes from liability from injuries which is a whole complex maze of state by state common law. For example, could a landowner with livestock be held liable for having an electric fence that accidentally triggers a heart attack in a trespasser. Would it matter if warning signs or no trespassing signs were out? What about a child, is a horse an attractive nuisance that require more steps to protect the child from the electric fence, and so on.

As I said, there is a whole subgroup of cases involving mailbox construction and I can recall at least one case that imposed liability on a homeowner tired of his mailbox being destroyed that built it up to be impregnable. Someone hit it intentionally and was seriously injured from crashing into the mailbox and successfully sued over it.

She will take any opportunity she can to build her reputation and advance herself. The only shocking thing about her currently is that she is only running for re-election and not for Governor. I suspect she expects Hochul to either lose outright and so position herself to "take back" the governorship or Hochul will have to ask her for enough favors that she will get backing to inherit the governor's mansion in 4 years. For that matter, she might even be setting up to backstab Hochul with leaks about corrupt deals and ensure defeat, setting herself up to save the day after a Zeldin interregnum.

-----------------------
Part of it is that the civil case interferes with a defense to a criminal case. If a judge in the civil case issues a decision unfavorable to Trump on classification then that can be applied as precedent to the potential criminal case in DC where a grand jury is already sitting.

Trump's lawyers are trying to argue that regardless of whether the information was or is now classified (Biden reclassified some of the material reportedly), the DOJ raid was unreasonable and lacked probable cause because the items were stored properly and as former president, he is allowed to retain ownership of the copies under the Presidential Records Act.

The whole classification issue is an attempt by the NSD of the DOJ to create a whole area of law where the bureaucracy can never be exposed for wrongdoing.

It is not unconstitutional but Florida's vote would not count in the EC.

358 This shit will not end until you decide that you are no longer going to share a legal system with foam at the mouth Marxists.

36 Red states need to start making compacts

No shit. But it won’t happen, because conservatives conserve everything, even an impossibly corrupt and dysfunctional union that means to enslave them

359 I am making $45 an hour working from home. I never imagined that it was honest to goodness yet my closest companion is earning $10,500 a month by working on a laptop, that was truly astounding for me, she prescribed for me to attempt it simply.

361 They had no criminal case. They chose civil "fraud" to impress dumb people.

Every asshole I've read on twatter about this, like Rob Reiner and Dan Rather, think this is a criminal case that will see Trump, all of his family, and all of his associates go to prison for a long, long time.

362 Gotta love the leftist media. Look at that photo they decided to use for their fable about DeSantis. He's no Brad Pitt, but ffs... what kind of blurred, fat-neck shit is that? They'll dig out a gauzy photo from 1992 to highlight a 2022 hagiography of Hillary, but they can't even muster a representatively unflattering shot of the FL governor?

Ever watch "Cops" and there's a call for a public disturbance and it's two trailer-trash girls fighting and the cop has to find out what's going on but the two girls are each telling their story simultaneously, rapidly and incoherently at the top of their lungs? That's what trying to learn about this war is like.

364 When ever someone puts an evaluation on a property, it is an estimate; the actual value of the property can only be obtained by selling the property, and seeing what it brought.

Now explain how you lie in an estimate.

365 "Don't worry -- they're not, by and large. They're just punching the clock until they can get appointed to a corporate board somewhere. They don't want to upset the Marxist-Corporate Oligarchy."

No, that's their second choice. First choice is governor in waiting.

366 If I understand correctly, the complaint is that Trump inflated the worth of his property in order to get a larger loan. So apparently a bank lent him money based on what he claimed his property was worth rather than its real value.

In what universe do banks grant loans based on self-reported worth? In my experience, the bank requires an appraisal. Is the claim that the bank didn't follow the usual, self-protective measure of using an appraisal to determine the loan amount?

367 Trump ought to sue Letitia personally under 42 USC 1983 for deprivation of rights under color of law, and force her to pay her defense out of her pocket.

368 If Ace thinks that Trump has never committed any financial fraud he has " jumped the Q shark"
His old attorneys and accountants all have jumped the floundering SS Trump ship.

369 Just like clockwork, as soon as the "new" republican shows up on the scene, the media starts cooing about the last Republican (who was - like the republican before him and the republican before him ad infinitum - "literally hitler.)
