(FiveNation.com)- On Monday, the attorney representing Donald Trump Junior and Ivanka Trump filed a motion to quash subpoenas issued by New York State Attorney General Letitia James in her ongoing civil investigation witch hunt into the Trump family business.
In a document filed jointly on Monday, the attorney general’s office and an attorney for the Trump Organization said Trump Jr. and Ivanka are now named as respondents in James’ ongoing inquiry which is separate from the investigation conducted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
According to a spokesperson from the AG’s office, James is seeking to interview former President Donald Trump, Trump Junior, and Ivanka under oath. The spokesperson added that the “numerous attempts to delay our investigation by the Trump Organization” would not prevent AG James from getting her questions answered, “because no one is above the law.”
Alan Futerfas, the attorney representing both Trump children argued in his motion to quash the subpoenas that the attorney general’s office is trying to circumvent the grand jury process and “nullify” his clients’ “constitutional and statutory rights” by requesting they provide “non-immunized testimony” to the attorney general’s office.
When she ran for Attorney General in 2018, Letitia James campaigned on the promise to “get” the President. She vowed that, if elected, she would begin investigating the Trump Organization to see if Trump and his company did anything illegal.
If you need proof that Letitia James is pursuing this investigation for purely partisan purposes to placate the anti-Trump Resistance after the Trump children moved to quash the subpoenas, Letitia James took to Twitter to complain about it while showboating to her followers.
Throughout her single-minded quest to “get” Trump, both the former president and his company have denied any wrongdoing and have maintained that Letitia James’ investigation is politically motivated.
Mostly because it is.
Two weeks former President Trump filed a lawsuit to stop the attorney general’s ongoing witch hunt. In his suit, Trump alleged that James is “guided solely by political animus and a desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen” James views as a “political opponent.”
