Former US President Donald Trump seems to have been literally terrorized for seven straight hours. This happened during an interrogation under a $250 million probe by New York state’s Democrat Attorney General, Letitia James.
Justice Weaponized Against Trump
The Democrats have weaponized law enforcement and the justice system in order to crack down on their political opponents.
Trump has already been indicted on highly questionable charges – 34 counts of “financial crimes” – by Manhattan’s woke DA Alvin Bragg over alleged bribes to a porn star.
Trump is also the target of two highly charged probes by the Justice Department – over claims he kept classified documents and wanted to overturn the 2020 election results on J6.
Then, there is Letitia James’s investigation claiming that Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, committed fraud worth $250 million by inflating their assets for more favorable insurance and loan terms.
After Bragg’s indictment and Trump’s arraignment on April 4, the former president had to go back to Lower Manhattan to get interrogated by the NY state AG’s office on April 13, The Epoch Times reported.
These shoddy lawsuits have no legs. They are political harassment…..Witch Hunt!!!!

Trump’s Shifted Stance
Trump was apparently interviewed for seven hours since he arrived by motorcade shortly after 9 am EST and then left past 6 pm, reports say.
According to his lawyer, Alina Habba, James herself was not present during the deposition and the former president was actually “eager to testify.”
The report points out, if that were the case, it would be a departure from Trump’s stance last year. During a deposition in the same civil case, he kept silent the entire time by constantly invoking the Fifth Amendment.
Habba said POTUS 45 had “nothing to conceal” and was excited about the prospects of “educating” New York’s attorney general on the great business success of the Trump Organization.
Besides Trump himself, the NY AG has also filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization and three of the former president’s children – Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka.
Hell to pay in 2024!!!!
