Trump Accuses New York AG Letitia James of Witch Hunt, Points to Soros Ties
In a recent post on his Truth Social platform, former President Donald Trump accused New York Attorney General Letitia James of conducting a “witch hunt” against him and his family. Trump also pointed to James’ ties to George Soros, a billionaire philanthropist who has been a vocal critic of Trump.
“Letitia James is a radical leftist who is waging a witch hunt against me and my family,” Trump wrote. “She is a puppet of George Soros, who is funding her campaign to destroy me. We will not be intimidated, and we will not back down.”
James is examining the Trump Organization for financial crimes. Trump denies misconduct during the two-year probe.
The claims against James come as Trump confronts other legal issues. The FBI is investigating him for the January 6 Capitol attack, and he is facing various civil lawsuits for his business operations.
Trump’s witch hunt accusation against James is ambiguous. He may be trying to undermine her investigation or raise his fans against her.
James’ office won’t address Trump’s claims.
Trump’s claims against James are part of his bigger campaign on opponents and investigators. He has often accused the media, FBI, and law enforcement of prejudice against him.
Many Trump fans echo these claims and harass and threaten dissenters.
Trump has not shown any proof that James is witch-hunting. James may discover misconduct in the Trump Organization inquiry.
However, the probe may not discover wrongdoing. James would have to drop the case.
James’ George Soros ties are further highlighted by Trump’s charges. Billionaire philanthropist Soros has criticized Trump. His donations to Democratic candidates and causes are significant.
Trump has often called Soros a puppet master seeking to dominate the world.
Jewish groups have called Trump’s assaults on Soros anti-Semitic.
