According to court documents, former US President Donald Trump filed a complaint Monday against New York State Attorney Leticia James.
The lawsuit, filed in state federal court, was filed by Democrats who allegedly violated the former president’s constitutional rights by prosecuting him for political reasons.
Its purpose is driven only by political hostility and a desire for persecution
“His aim is driven only by political animosity and the persecution, intimidation and revenge of a simple citizen whom he sees as a political adversary.“, Can be read in the complaint.
Leticia James began the investigation in March 2019, suspecting that the Trump organization fraudulently exaggerated the value of some assets when it applied for a loan to the banks and underpaid the same assets to tax authorities.
He asked Donald Trump to come to his office on Jan. 7 to testify, according to the Washington Post in early December.
Eric Trump, one of the sons of the Republican billionaire and executive chairman of the Trump organization, was questioned in October 2020 by the Attorney General’s Office.
The former president has also been targeted by other US investigations.
Six years ago, he was questioned on October 18 for a case in which protesters accused his security forces of harassing them.
