JUST IN ðŸš¨ Trump sued the New York State attorney general, Letitia James

Donald J. Trump filed a lawsuit on Monday against the New York State attorney general, Letitia James, seeking to halt her long-running civil investigation into his business practices.
The suit, filed in federal court in upstate New York by Mr. Trump and his family real estate business, argues that Ms. Jamesâ€™s inquiry, which has lasted more than two years, has violated Mr. Trumpâ€™s constitutional rights.
Mr. Trump and his lawyers have long argued that the investigation was politically motivated; the lawsuit asks a judge to agree, and to stop the investigation.
â€œHer mission is guided solely by political animus and a desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen who she views as a political opponent,â€ the suit reads.

She also dropped out of the Governor race which she claimed was to focus on her investigations.
Trump previously blasted James in a statement.

“Letitia James wants to politically weaponize her position as Attorney General instead of exemplifying impartiality and protecting the interests of all New Yorkers. While she pretends that she suspended her short-lived campaign for New York Governor to go after me, she conveniently fails to mention that she couldnâ€™t garner any support and her poll numbers were abysmalâ€”she had no chance of even coming close to winning. Despite weeks of campaigning, she was losing to Governor Hochul by what would have been a massive landslide. She didnâ€™t drop out of the race for a higher purpose, or to â€œfinish existing businessâ€ (I wonder what that would be?). She dropped out because her campaign was a complete failure, possibly because the citizens of New York saw how unfairly and viciously she and other highly partisan New York Democrat prosecutors were treating President Donald J. Trump.”
