Letitia James won the battle but will lose the war




As previously noted, Letitia James campaigned on getting Trump. There was nothing specific- she was just going to get him. And she did get him- in an environment completely hostile to Trump. It is unquestionably a political persecution meant specifically to ruin Trump financially and politically. She won the battle, but she is going to lose the war.

Virtually every day of the trial the porcine James sat in and smugly smirked. She trolls Trump daily on X (Twitter). With the aid of a deranged judge, she obtained an astronomically large judgment against Trump. Worse, and brutally un-American, was the demand that the penalty be paid or bond posted before an appeal could be proffered. It’s a clear violation of Trump’s rights under the 8th Amendment.

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

The fine (half a billion dollars) is cruel and excessive by anyone’s measure.  Reports have James moving on Trump’s assets and have seen some pretty interesting possibilities suggested, such as putting a padlock on Trump Tower on 40 Wall St.

“Perhaps worst of all, the Attorney General argues that Defendants should be forced to dispose of iconic, multi-billion-dollar real-estate holdings in a ‘fire sale,’” Trump attorney Clifford Robert seethed in a letter to New York’s Appellate Division Thursday.

“By demanding an undertaking in the full amount of the judgment in order to appeal, the Attorney General and Supreme Court have sought to impose a patently unreasonable, unjust, and unconstitutional (under both the Federal and New York State Constitutions) bond condition,” his legal team also said.

The argument for selective prosecution is compelling. Banks do not simply accept word of mouth the valuations of properties used as collateral for loans. They do their own due diligence. Not a single banker complained about Trump and they said they’d do more business with him. Yet James did not bring conspiracy charges against any of them.

Ms. James ran for office in 2018 on the promise of taking down Mr. Trump. That she turned up evidence of inflated assets on financial statements he provided banks to obtain loans should have come as no surprise given his penchant for puffery. But her investigation into his vast business dealings failed to produce evidence of fraud.

No bank claimed to have lost money by lending to Mr. Trump, or to have been deceived by his financial legerdemain. Nor did any witnesses at trial say his alleged misrepresentations changed its loan terms or prices. Ms. James’s 2022 lawsuit lacked any evidence that Mr. Trump profited from any alleged wrongdoing.

A former Deutsche Bank risk manager testified at trial last year that the bank’s loan decisions were based on its own analysis, not Mr. Trump’s word. Banks know regulators can punish them for failing to do due diligence when underwriting loans.

Before the 2007-08 housing meltdown, banks qualified borrowers for larger loans than they could afford, often based on inaccurate financial records. Regulators later dunned them for slipshod underwriting. Yet Ms. James bizarrely argued that banks have somehow been victimized by Mr. Trump’s alleged misrepresentations even though they made money from the loans.

No one would underwrite the bond Trump sought, likely because they would become targets of James.

The damage done by James will go well beyond Trump. An interview with Kevin O’Leary:

“What’s going on in New York, it has nothing to do with Trump. That case is over. What’s going on now is concerning financial markets all around the world,” O’Leary told Fox News host Jesse Watters Thursday.

“I mean, seizing assets after 22 days, in a bankruptcy court you get years to resolve this,” the O’Leary Ventures chair stressed.

“I don’t care what color you are, red or blue or independent, doesn’t matter. We are the bastion of safety when it comes to investing large pools of capital,” he told the host.

O’Leary voiced that he’s “very disturbed” by the legal turmoil unraveling in New York City, arguing that “it doesn’t matter that it’s Trump, it could be anybody.

Yes, it could be anybody. Any Republican candidate in NY. Any businessperson with the wrong political outlook. Investors would be wise to avoid New York.

And there’s more. Trump observed the possible outcome should his appeal prevail (and it’s highly likely it will)

“If I sold assets, and then won the Appeal, the assets would be forever gone. Also, putting up money before an Appeal is VERY EXPENSIVE. When I win the Appeal, all of that money is gone, and I would have done nothing wrong,” Trump fumed on Truth Social Thursday.

Here’s the fun part of that from William Shipley:

NY State Taxpayers.

Let’s presume that AG James begins to seize Trump properties, and then sells one or more of them in order to collect on the judgment entered by the Court.

Let’s also presume that the judgement is overturned on appeal or dramatically reduced on an 8th Amendment challenge.

Where does Trump go to recover what it is he will have lost?

The NY Taxpayer. Enjoy.

The seizing of Trumps assets is unconstitutional. Both the fat ass black miss piggy and the unhinged sexual predator judge should be imprisoned.

Trump should also sue anyone on television gleefully claiming he is “broke” for defamation. I would love to see Whoopie, Behar, Reid, Scarborough, et al treated as Trump as been treated and see how funny it is.

The mere fact that the judge looked into exactly how much cash the Trump campaign had before he came up with his number (out his ass) might be illegal.
The 8th Amendment is very clear.
But this is part of a concerted effort to make it difficult for Trump to campaign.
Keep him busy.
Keep him broke,if possible.
Slime his name.
And all that is backfiring on dems.

This Screeching Harpy need to be fired this whole thing against Trump is a Witch Hunt lead by Liberal Democrats the M.S. Media UN, Soros and the rest of the CFR/Globalists

Trump has NEVER played fairly. As ye sow, so shall ye reap. What goes around comes around. What you do comes back to you. Karma. It’s a universal principle.

So says your media

So say the bibles Trump is hawking for 60 bucks a book.

Trump sells Bibles, Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden sells US influence and lies. Gee, which is more admirable?

Oh, so because you think he doesn’t play “fair” (with, as usual, ZERO evidence), it’s OK to arbitrarily violate his Constitutional rights and steal his property? Someone getting robbed just because YOU are butthurt is not anything like Karma.

Greg probably voted for Clinton(Bill)and Obama and of course Biden

If your stupid enough to still trust the M.S. Media Bottom Feeders then your way past hope of ever recovering from your stupidity

Trying to pretend this is anything but a political hack job isn’t going to convince anyone. Just like the E. Jean Carroll case, the final decision is based 100% on leftist propaganda about Trump, not one shred of evidence. The entire world sees this for what it is and they don’t see Trump getting justly punished, the see the disintegration of what was once a justice system that was the envy of the world. Now, every po-dunk banana republic has one like ours.

Being Free to Applaud or Boo is a First Amendment Concept New York Attorney General Letitia James Cannot Comprehend

Kind of irritates you that your fascist lawfare is failing, doesn’t it?
