Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani declared on Tuesday that New York Attorney General Letitia James used her office to campaign as a “hitman” against President Trump, and should be removed from her position as a result.
“This woman is a disgrace as a prosecutor,” said Giuliani, who currently serves as President Trump’s personal attorney. “You don’t run as a hitman for a particular person. I’ve never heard of that.”
Letitia James goes all in
James has been leading an investigation into the Trump family’s financial dealings since 2019 in an attempt to incriminate Trump from a different angle than House Democrats.
The New York Post reported on Monday, “President Trump and his company have been under investigation by the AG’s office since 2019 — following former Trump fixer Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony that Trump’s annual financial statements exaggerated the value of his assets to help him get better terms on loans and insurance policies, James’ office said.”
James’ office has issued eight subpoenas for testimony from Trump’s family members and documents related to their finances.
James is now accusing the Trump family of not cooperating with her investigation, claiming that they have “stalled, withheld documents, and instructed witnesses.”
A spokesperson for the Trump organization fired back that James’ accusations amount to no more than a “dispute over documents and the like. The Trump Organization has done nothing wrong and … the NYAG has made no determination that anything was improper or that any action is forthcoming.”
Giuliani appeared alongside Eric Trump in the “Brian Kilmeade Show” appearance and said that James — who is currently focusing on attempting to force Eric Trump to submit to a subpoena — should be recused from the investigation due to her political activism.
“She actually runs the Democratic Attorney Generals for Joe Biden,” Eric Trump chimed in. “She campaigned on taking my father down. She stupidly put this in clips. It’s online. She fundraised off of this … she needs to recuse herself.”
“The ethical violations of what she’s doing is truly horrible,” he added. “Why would you speak to somebody who literally campaigned on taking out your family, taking out your father?”
James has made quite a splash in recent weeks by announcing that she is filing a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association in order to attempt to dissolve the organization entirely.
Accusations of partisanship against James exploded at the time, as she has refused to back an investigation into NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous executive order that forced thousands of COVID-19 positive patients into the state’s nursing homes, resulting in untold loss of elderly lives.
