Arizona AG Nominee Abe Hamadeh Discusses Cash Bail
"Play a piece of tape here. And this is about Illinois. It's not about Arizona, but it's about what will happen if we allow Democrat AGs and these maniacs to get into power. It's a clip of Joe Rogan discussing the elimination of cash bail, play cut 35. They're essentially eliminating cash bail for almost everything dangerous. The law includes secondary murder, arson, so you let a guy's house on fire, get right out of jail. Drug induced homicide, robbery, kidnapping, aggravated battery, burglary, intimidation, aggravated driving under the influence, fleeing and alluding drug offenses and threatening a public official. No bail. No bail. Now, I'm not saying that's happening in Arizona tomorrow, but it is a theme, isn't it Abe if we let down our guard, we allow people like Hayes and these marxists to take over all of a sudden you get ideas like that. Absolutely. And we already have one at DA George Soros prosecutor here in pima county actually down in Tucson. And that's exactly the policies that they're implementing so quickly. There's also very important county attorney race America county. I encourage every Republican to vote for Rachel Mitchell because her opponent Julie gungal would bring those type of views and same with my opponent Chris mace, but look at every single city that's implemented ending cash bail Charlie. It's literally turned those cities into less safe. A lot less safe and what you're seeing right now is it turns them into Gotham and chaos and misery. So New York, Portland, San Francisco, every single city that's actually implemented these policies have turned them to hell holes. So I don't know why Illinois wants to bring that on, but you know, I think this is exactly why there's going to be a huge push on November 8th. Look at even new yorks and play Charlie. I just saw that poll at Trafalgar poll today that actually had Lee zeldin up. And if you're looking at penry, Michael Henry, he's running against letitia James, you know, who's a crooked attorney general in New York. I mean, he's, he's right on the cusp. I'm hoping they have a red wave in New York all across the country. We need to elect Republicans up and down the ballot.
How Is President Trump Doing? He Tells Us
"I did a list on our newsmax show on everything they've tried to do to you from the Billy Bush tapes to impeachment one impeachment to the Mueller probe, the January 6th committee, letitia James and so forth. I know we have 3 million listeners plus our viewers. They are concerned for you for the former First Lady Melania. How are you doing sir and talk to us about the latest developments in Nancy's witch hunt? So I think it's, I think we're doing very well. People do say, how do you do this? How do you do it? Like we have Peekaboo James, you know, the attorney general, New York, who's controlled by Washington. But Peekaboo James comes out with I built this great company, and they said, took advantage of banks. I didn't take advantage. The banks were never missed a day of interest. My company has very little debt. It has tremendous cash. It's got a tremendous amount of cash. I built a great company. Some of the best assets in the world real estate assets in the world. And I got to go through this with this corrupt attorney general who, by the way, is so weak on crime that New York City sets records in New York State records on murders and all and drugs. I mean, the drugs are all over the place. And she's somebody said, oh, how much did the banks lose? I said nothing. What do you mean nothing? Nothing. Actually, they get paid off early in some cases. You know, there was nothing. And I have very little banks because I've heard a little debt. I mean, she, they manufacture stuff. They do whatever they can. These are very corrupt people. And if you don't think they're dealing with Washington, this is state and local.
Michael Cohen Praises Letitia James' Bravery
"What is your take on all of this? Is just as karma, whatever you want to call it finally coming. Karma boomerang? Yeah. Yeah. Is it coming for Trump? Okay, so I do believe that indictments will be coming. I believe that indictments will be coming thank God to tish James our attorney general and I hope if she doesn't end up staying as attorney general, you know what they always say AG stands for. What? Governor. I would love to see tish James. Aspiring government. Oh, there you go. Sorry, you cut out there. Aspiring governor, got it. Wait, wait, wait, hold on. Wait, that one's going over your head. No, you cut out. Wait, it's coming back. I got it. Okay. All right. I would hope that she would consider becoming governor down the road. And I would support her with everything that I have. And I would get people to support her because what she did, nobody else wanted to do. Alvin bridge certainly didn't want to do it. Okay, we at the end of this month, we have the DA's case against the Trump organization. I want to remind you started by our previous district attorney Cyrus Vance. So at least Alvin Briggs didn't muck that one up and then get rid of get rid of that case. I also believe that that will cause some significant legal challenges to Trump personally, not just the Trump organization. But what tish James did by being first one out there, she now has all of the documents, all of the proof she has forwarded the case to the southern district of New York for tax evasion, as well as to the IRS. So I do believe indictments will be coming. I believe that they will come before the end of the year. What bothers me again is this whole slow walk by our Justice Department. Oh, we can't do it now. It's only three weeks before the midterm elections. Ask me if I care. Yeah. Yeah. By the way, we want to thank you for saying mom care if we indict him on the day of the midterm elections. It's not guilty. He's not on the ballot. Yeah, exactly.
Show the Same Contempt for Trump That He Shows for the Law
"Yeah, you say it's not just the Trump's gotten away with so much to run his life. How many regular working in middle class diffs does he have to over before the rest understand they're being conned? How did it take so long for some entity in New York to seriously go after his entire ass and why do they always stop short of actually arresting someone who's blatantly flouted the law I'm honestly pissed as hell at Cyrus Vance and every AG and DA who allowed Trump and his children to remain free as over to F over more people. You said, right, and she could be so brazen in her contempt for Trump because Trump's been so brazen in his contempt for the law when you're talking about letitia James. Her job is enforcing the law. So sure, someone like Trump is going to piss her off. So, you know, somebody in the, I love this whole thing of like, oh, you know, we don't want we don't want letitia James running for office saying she's going to go after Trump. I don't know if somebody ran for sheriff in the old west and said, I'm going to get that Jesse James. Everybody be like hell yeah. Let's get Jesse James.

"This guy Gavin Newsom will not come on the program He will not come on the program any more than letitia James will come on the program But he will not come on this program We are heard in every corner of California Literally Every corner of California And you would think he'd want to come on and kind of whip my ass debating me and show that people of California just how smart he is But he won't I'm not running for anything I'm just a right winger AKA constitutional conservative But I have all this stuff that he's been doing in front of me in a big folder This is from Fox News Paul best California residents can now acquire a state ID regardless of immigration status under a law signed by governor Gavin Newsom on Friday Now why did he do this Because they like fraudulent voting
Dinesh Shows Why Trump's 'Crime' Is Completely Bogus
"Donald Trump is under multiple investigations and attacks from the left. As I've said before, it's almost overkill. And when you have overkill, you'd begin to suspect that the guys who are flinging multiple arrows are flinging so many arrows because they don't have a single arrow that's sure to find its target. There's a kind of searching here for something that they can get him on, and the latest comes from letitia James, who is the New York attorney general, and she is trying to get Trump really for his business dealings that long proceed his ascent to the presidency. So this is not, this is not about colluding with Russia. This is not about taking classified documents. Those, of course, are supposedly offenses. I think they're fictional offenses, but their offense has nevertheless that are timed within Trump's tenure in the presidency, but or at least in the campaign leading up to the presidency in the case of Russia collusion Trump is colluding with Putin and all of that turned out to be nonsense. But here what letitia James is saying is that Trump's business, the Trump organization, over valued its assets in applying for loans from large financial institutions. Oh, wow. First of all, it should be said that all these loans that letitia James is talking about have been fully paid back. So this is not a case where Trump took loans. He couldn't pay them back. He's somehow refused to pay people back. He owes the money. None of that. The argument is simply this that in order to get the loans in the first place Trump exaggerated the value of his assets. He gave them, if you will, a higher appraisal than they were truly do.
"letitia james" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"This is Bloomberg law with June grosso from Bloomberg radio. Claiming you have money that you do not have, does not amount to the art of the deal. It's the art of the steal. And there can not be different rules for different people in this country or in this state. And former presidents are no different. New York's attorney general letitia James is suing former president Donald Trump, his three eldest children and his company for what she called staggering fraud over a decade, alleging they lied about the value of his prized real estate assets from golf courses and hotels to his homes at Trump Tower and Mar-a-Lago. The lawsuit strikes at the essence of what made Trump famous and the core of his brand and the ultimate aim is to stop the trumps from doing business in New York ever again. My guess is former federal prosecutor Robert mintz, a partner mccarter in English. This is a 222 page complaint. You could say it's almost three years in the making, listing 200 plus times Trump allegedly lied about valuations of his assets over ten years. This is a sweeping and detailed complaint not unexpected, by the way, something that everybody thought was going to come eventually out of the New York attorney general's office, but the details and the number of interviews and the number of documents that were reviewed in putting this complaint together is something that's certainly gets your attention. Is a leg is a widespread effort to manipulate property valuations by former president Trump and three of his children and the Trump organization and some of the Trump executives and is asking for $250 million in penalties and an end to their operations in the state of New York. It's specifically accuses them of engaging in a years long scheme to enrich themselves by inflating the values of a wide variety of properties that the Trump organization would inflate the valuation of assets in certain circumstances. For example, when seeking loans and for insurance coverage purposes, but at the same time, deflate the value of those very same assets in order to reduce their tax liability. During the press conference, the AG gave some concrete examples easy to understand, according to James, Trump said his triplex and Trump Tower was more than 30,000 ft² when in reality was less than 11,000 ft², so that increased the value by about $200 million. But what the attorney general was trying to do here was to get out in front of an argument that these valuations are by definition somewhat subjective. In other words, in order to try to put a valuation on commercial property in Manhattan, for example, there is somewhat of a subjective element to coming up with a number of what that property is worth based upon other commercial properties. So what the AG here was attempting to do was to give examples that did not involve any of that subjectivity. So as an example, the complaint alleges that the triplex apartment at Trump Tower was 30,000 ft² in certain documents and then was listed as only 11,000 ft² in others. That is something that is clearly not subjective, but is simply an object of fact. It's either 30,000 or 11,000 ft². Other examples include adding more floors and square footage to buildings and actually exist claiming more residential lots than we're actually zoned for on certain golf courses. Again, these are attempts by the attorney general's office to show that these were not mistakes, but these were simply facts that were misstated on according to the attorney general's office were in misstated intentionally. The other thing and we're seeing throughout this complaint is the attempt by the attorney general's office to show that this is a pattern in practice. In other words, it's not an isolated example. It's not a situation in which the Trump organization can say that they may have made a mistake or they may have relied on evaluation that was improper, but they're showing that this is a pattern in practice. It's an involved multiple properties both domestic and internationally on something that went on for many years. Ultimately, in order to prove their case, they have to show that this was done intentionally. It was not an innocent mistake. On his social media site, truth social, Trump called the lawsuit another witch hunt. His lawyer Elena haba said, it's abundantly clear that the attorney general's office has exceeded its statutory authority by prying into transactions where absolutely no wrongdoing has taken place. How do they rebut, though, things like exaggerations of square footage? That's a fact. How do you rebut that? Well, I think that's part of the defense that we're certainly going to see in this case. The fact is that letitia James is a Democrat who was elected. Alvin Bragg and non district attorney was also a Democrat. And so it's certainly something that's going to come out of the Trump playbook to argue that these people were politically motivated. And in fact, letitia James as the New York attorney general when she ran for office specifically talked about investigating Donald Trump and the Trump organization. So this is part of an attempt in order to nullify the jury to go out there and suggest that this entire investigation and now the civil charges that have been brought were all part of the witch hunt and there's really no substance here. An ultimately when it gets down to a trial, they will have to rebut the specific examples where the AG has cited misstatements in these asset valuations. This is a civil complaint, but James said that she thinks the conduct alleged here also violates federal criminal law and she's making criminal referrals to the U.S.

This is a civil complaint, but Jane said that she thinks the conduct alleged here also violates federal criminal law, and she's making criminal referrals to the U.S. attorney in Manhattan and the IRS. So they'll have the benefit of all the evidence she's gathered in a lot of hard fought legal fights. Does that put pressure on them to do something? Well, I think it does ratchet up the pressure a bit on the U.S. attorney's office. James specifically said that this investigation uncovered potential criminal violations, including falsifying business records. Issuing false financial statements, insurance fraud, conspiracy, and bank front. So this will, I think, put additional pressure on the U.S.

Kevin McCarthy: On Day One, Republicans Will Repeal 87,000 IRS Agents
"The attorney general of New York, a partisan named letitia James, promised to go after Donald Trump. She hates the guy despises him and was very, very vocal in her promise a few years ago to try to make Trump's life a living hell. This week she unleashed a lawsuit, a civil lawsuit, not criminal charges, but a civil lawsuit claiming the Trump inflated the value of his properties. Watching the FBI come swooping in and confiscating the cell phone of a private citizen like Mike lindell. Sheen IRS agents unleashed upon the middle class, all these things have to be addressed. And thankfully, Kevin McCarthy, the would be and likely future Speaker of the House, addressed a lot of it specifically today in revealing what the Republicans commitment to America agenda is all about. It includes this. We'll put it out to the entire country. This is what we'll do. But on that very first day that we're sworn in, you'll see that it all changes. Because on our very first bill, we're going to repeal 87,000 IRS agents. This is what Republicans have been hoping for. This is what independence have been praying for. This is what many Democrats expect. That the Republicans are going to stand up and tackle inflation, crime, election accountability,
Dinesh and Debbie Discuss the Relentless Pursuit of Trump
"Most recently in the news, the attorney general of New York, letitia James, the latest investigation, apparently into the not just Trump, but also the Trump family. The Trump family, I mean, this is just, you know, again, it's one of those things where they're just throwing spaghetti at the wall and then whatever sticks they think is going to be what's going to bring them down. They know that something's got to. You know? I mean, there's a little bit of a funny aspect to all this because it's sort of like, you know, we thought we got him on that one. No, we got to move over here. We got to move over there. It does not seem to occur to the left that there's something fundamentally wrong about identifying the man Trump and then going looking for crime. Right, so what didn't we say that? It's like create the crime, put in the man. You know? Right. Right? And so. And if this one doesn't work. Exactly. Let's go to the next stage. Because really, truly, I mean, if the feds want someone to go to jail, they will find something for you to go to jail for. They will. And I think that they're really trying very hard. They're very scared of him. They think that if he's on the ballot in 2024, they are doomed, not we're doomed, because America will be great again. But for them, America will be horrible. So they do not want that. And I think that they are going all out. I mean, look at this. Now, letitia James is also going to file something in the southern district of New York. You know that I've called that many times. The judicial branch of the Democratic Party, that's the same court that got you. It goes after conservatives. I'm not sure that there's a single Democrat that that place has gone after. You said something a moment ago though that caught my attention and that is you said that the left is afraid that Trump will win. Right? Now it's funny because there are Republicans who think, well, you know, maybe we should move beyond Trump. Maybe we should look for somebody else because after all, this guy just has so much so much attack and so on. But the left thinks that Trump is the strongest candidate on our side. That's why he's their main target.
Donald Trump Jr.: Letitia James Has No Response to Liberal Backlash
"It's just frustrating I mean we got in this we're the first people to go into The White House and come out with less money We've been fighting these battles We've spent probably hundreds of billions of dollars at this point in legal fees because they can just do you forever Notice how even if you look at the stuff that it's all like give me a break Nonsense stuff but again they get their little sound bite but there's nothing there And again because you have no recourse they can get you to spend hundreds of millions of dollars Whether they win or lose You still have to spend that money They could lose everything in the end They'll get some sort of little slap of the risk Who the heck knows But they get this sound bite that they win You spend hundreds of millions of dollars fighting it and you don't get any of it back even though it's clear to anyone even the people in this case it was sort of interesting even the people who hate our guts are coming out there It's like okay this is a step too far This is ridiculous Even some of the leftists And even judging by the Q&A in the press conference yesterday it was sort of amazing because even that hometown New York liberal media was like okay but this seems a little bit ridiculous here And she has no answer That's what people were It's like they don't even think there's going to be maybe some pushback Maybe something They just go in there they read their poorly written speech They say it in front They expect everyone to give them all the accolades in the world
Donald Trump Jr. Responds to New York AG Letitia James' Filiing
"Tisha James has her friends in the media caller She's filed a very long document that is really grotesque And I wanted you to have an opportunity to respond to that since you're named in it for crying out loud Well I'm named so much that even after a full day of testimony when I believe they had 12 lawyers from the attorney general's office because New York is not going into enough of a hellhole They needed to have 12 attorneys from the attorney general's office on the other side of the table against me This is what's going on I'm named in like the last paragraph of this thing because apparently there was nothing wrong with my testimony I refuted all of those things But again you know it's a good soundbite to name Donald Trump Jr. So you do that right It doesn't have to do with the law right They can say well Trump over valued the asset and Deutsche Bank One of the largest financial institutions just blindly took his word for it I mean the whole premise of it is insane Deutsche Bank lent money to my father the loans were paid back They made millions in interest I'm trying to figure out who's the victim that the attorney general is so zealously trying to defend You know they say there were things that were overvalued but one of the assets I believe was the old post office our hotel in Washington D.C. it was valued to my recollection at a $125 million We sold it a few months ago for $400 million So was that undervalued Do we get some sort of credit for that Or do they only play the soundbites that they magically come up with You saw Mar-a-Lago and Mark you've been there They said should be valued at $75 million No way For 450 million that's a third of the size If they can make up whatever they want and because it's New York there's no accountability that no one cares Everyone's happy that their weaponizing these offices no different than the FBI did when they used the hostage rescue team

"Women in the streets. Some believable what's happened. Unbelievable. I want to talk to you about letitia James. It's not just the New York story. It's a national story. This is an example of a radical leftist who gets a position of power as they do in these Democrat states and Democrat cities. Then they use the law as stalinists. To try and destroy people with whom they disagree. Tisha James, as they call her, is a stalinist in my view. She's a stalinist, as is the January 6th committee a stalinist operation. And when she ran for the attorney general position in New York, she said things that should have resulted in her being brought up before the New York bar.

"The former president went on Fox last night to talk about that. Cut 21. One good thing is people see what a great company I built. I built a great company, a powerful company. A company that's very lowly leveraged with the among the best assets anywhere in the world. I mean, you look at this asset, she has this down to $75 million. I can tell you it's many times that number, she said, oh, he valued it at 75 or whatever it was or she valued at 75. What does letitia James know? But if I were going, I don't have a mortgage in this forever. If I was going to put a mortgage on this property, the institutions are going to be coming over, they're going to go through comparable properties all over Palm Beach or whatever it is wherever it may be, Miami. We have them all over. We have tremendous properties. And again, we have very little debt.

How Reality Is Interfering With Biden’s Global Agenda
"To the news that's happening in New York. Reality really, you know, kind of stinks, right? When you play the whole conference, think about that. This whole conference was planned around the idea of climate change. And suddenly, there's been this shift. I mean, you can't get the president of the United States to attend the breakout sessions because, well, Vladimir Putin, that guy's in the way again. Of course, it didn't really change his speech. He has his priorities after all right, listen as I said last year. The United States is opening an era of relentless diplomacy to address the challenges that matter most to people's lives, all people's lives. Tackling climate crisis as the previous spoker speaker spoke to. Strengthening global health security. Feeding the world, feeding the world. You know, and it gets a little tough when Russia decides to cut off that pipeline that supplies Europe with its natural gas. It gets a little tough when you lose the bread basket there in Ukraine. That's the time when you probably ought to be saying to yourself, gee, maybe just maybe. And I'm going to go out on a limb here. We might want to think about investing in our own sources of energy. And our own sources of food and anything that's vital to our existence as a country. Because we certainly don't want to be in a situation like Europe is right now. We don't want to ignore the reality of this moment. And the reality, as by the way, Jamie Dimon totally gets Jamie diamond speaking on Capitol Hill, telling Congress, we need fossil fuels in the here and now. You don't want to ignore that reality because if you do, you could very well find yourself in a very vulnerable state as we see, of course, with Germany.

"To let go of this emergency power. This gives them almost dictator like powers. It's intoxicating to them. They never want to let it go, so he can't say the pandemic's over because then the emergency powers are over, right? You are spot on Harry and they are stuck between the proverbial rock and the hard place because he wants to put the country at ease and act like he is the one who has sold this pandemic problem. He is the one they want to pretend that he is the one that saw the COVID situation. Meanwhile, natural immunity has gone around the globe and unfortunately, we lost a lot of lives, the reality is a lot of people were going to die, regardless of who was vaccinated and who was wearing masks and so it had to run its course. And it has done that, but you are 100% correct. They don't want to leave that power go. We still have people voting on the House floor by proxy. It is an absolute disgrace that we have members that do not show up on the House floor to vote either for or against the legislation that is being proposed before Congress and their constituents should be aware of that. Yeah, they don't want to let that go either. A hundred people. Yeah. And I want to let that go. They don't want to let that go. They don't even have to go show up.

Matt Rosendale: We Do Not Have Operational Control of Our Border
"Congressman rosendale, what do you think? And I'm sure you think a lot and would have a lot to say on this. When you hear whether it's President Biden, some of his other underlings, Korean Jean Pierre, when they actually wow, the vice president said it recently as well. Kamala Harris, when they say the border is secure, the border is closed. I mean, they should spontaneously combust of just intellectual dishonesty on the spot anytime they would even say that based upon the truth that we know. The truth that we know is that there is a definition in that it's called operational control, very specifically lays out what that means. And I can tell you something. If we do not have operational control of our border, it was put in the statute back in 2008. It was put into the constitution, certainly 250 years ago. And they don't. And our country is under an invasion right now. And Harry, it's a big problem. Not only do we have the problem with all of these people that are here in our country illegally. And that is a massive problem that we're going to be dealing with for the next 15 years. If we sealed it today. But in addition to that, these light now have got fentanyl streaming across our southern border. We are literally under a chemical attack from China. That's where the components are coming from to create this fentanyl. The cartels are pushing it across the border because it has a high profile more of its in for them. And it's killing our citizens.

"Love it. And I love the letter that you and your fellow senator because I'm going to basically call you senator that your fellow senator sent to President Biden about not sending illegal immigrants to Montana. I'm sure this is not lost on you that my goodness. We're talking about two and a half million this year, 5 million by the end of the first two years of President Biden, illegals. We don't know who they are. Some of them with very bad intentions, as you know, and 50 go to Martha's Vineyard and you might think the world just ended the other day. Congressman? Give what? You would. And I will tell you something. I have traveled to the southern border three times since being sworn into office January of 2021. I hadn't been for a year, Harry, and I just went about 30 days ago to get updated. And oh my gosh, it has devolved even worse. And so yeah, we did. Myself and senator Dane sent a letter to the president to make sure that we were very clear on the record that we did not want him to begin trying to transfer some of this problem if you will into Montana so that we would have to use the limited tax dollars. We only have 1 million people in the state. Think about that. Think about that. Actually, he has brought more illegal immigrants into the country. Two and a half times more illegal immigrants into the country over the last 18, 20 months than the entire population of the state of Montana. And we just want to make sure that he does not try to do anything to increase our population any further by dropping people that that would require all the services have arrived here illegally and we don't know who they are or what their intentions are.

"Let me add a little bit more color commentary, a little bit more context to the civil litigation file today by New York State attorney general letitia James. She is seeking quote unquote around. It's not a hard and fast number around $250 million. She's calling this disgorgement from the defendants, the defendants are president Trump. Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, the CEO, or CFO, rather and several other entities within the Trump organization. She's also seeking for the Trump organization to be banned from having any involvement in commercial real estate acquisitions. Of course, because she knows that's exactly what they do. So hit them where it hurts. And obviously New York City before they've destroyed it used to be called the greatest city in the world. I just don't know that you can say that anymore with how dangerous it is. I remember when Rudy Giuliani saved New York, you had trash piled up 20, 30 feet high. You had rats as big as cats. You had squeegee guys, all kinds of things going on. And it does show you, though, if you elect the right philosophy of governance, you can fix just about anything. You really can. Because New York was in very bad shape, New York City, very, very bad shape. So the Trump organization would be barred from engaging in any commercial real estate acquisitions for 5 years. Trump himself and his children would be prohibited from serving as officers or directors in any corporation in the state. I mean, it really is just inviting you just to move out of New York after all that's what this horrific governor fake governor inherited governor. Kathy hochul says, she told people get out. Go to Florida. Hey, guess what? A lot of them did. New York City had in the past 30 days, the most people ever in history to leave New York City. For guess where, Florida, that doesn't count the people that also left to go to Texas and to South Carolina and to other places around the country. Todd starnes country, you name it. So it's not a kill shot, but it's a big hit. If she prevails, that's obviously a lot of money. It prevents you from doing business. I mean, Donald Trump has been the king. Of New York real estate. Since I, since I worked for him, well more than 30 years. This is, in my opinion, this is very Stalin esque, this is show me the person and I'll show you the crime. This was an effort, and this is civil, but this is an effort of investigating in search of a crime. Not investigating anything that's real. But in search of, and that's not what we're supposed to do in the United States of America. You're not supposed to pick a person by name and then say you're going to look at everything about them..

"Trump invoked the Fifth Amendment protection against self incrimination this week when he refused Wednesday to answer questions under oath in the New York attorney general's civil investigation into his business dealings. The former president releasing the statement adding, I once asked if you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment? Now, I know the answer to that question. This morning, Laurie Levinson, a professor at Loyola law school in Los Angeles and former federal prosecutor on the president's decision to invoke the 5th. I'm not surprised actually that Trump took the 5th because he had some exposure here. There's been an investigation by the New York attorney general letitia James. This has been a civil investigation to see if his company was engaged in fraud. But he knows that looming out there are criminal investigations by the Manhattan DA. And the total focusing on whether Trump has made false statements regarding the values of his properties, when he went to get to loan and funding, then he would tend to overvalue what his properties were worth. On the other hand, on his taxes, he was undervaluing it at least that's the allocation. So given that setup and having to be under oath in a deposition, he has chosen to invoke the 5th and that is his right as a former president or any member of society. The only question is what the consequences of that might be. Yeah, and what options now does the attorney general letitia James have at this point now that the president is refusing to talk? Well, she has the option of moving forward with a civil lawsuit against president Trump. She already has quite a bit of information from other individuals in the paperwork itself. And when you take the Fifth Amendment, it can't not be used against you in a criminal proceeding, but they can draw negative inferences from it in a civil proceeding. And that's what James is focusing on. What happens next in the investigation? Well, what's going to likely happen next because I think they're nearing the end of the attorney general's civil investigation is they can decide to bring lawsuits against Trump and his entities. But what might happen down the road is that as the Manhattan DA had put on hold, his criminal investigation, that might ramp up. Again, it can't be used in a criminal trial that Trump took the 5th, but it certainly can spark the interest of the district attorney.

"A former public defender in the courts of Washington back when I was a prosecutor So he knows his way around justice on both sides of the equation defense and prosecution And now on the bench he said and I quote Donald Trump's speech on January 6th was the essence of civil conspiracy That is a serious federal judge announcing here is the road map for prosecuting Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection Now admittedly that was in the context of a civil case and he refused to dismiss the civil suit brought against Donald Trump for inciting the insurrection But the principles are universal when it comes to a conspiracy to incite an insurrection So that's an important really important statement by a federal judge But that's what I'm saying interesting that it might be the civil cases whether it's January 6th or his financial crimes in New York it might be the civil cases to get him and not the criminal which is ironic in New York said I reviewed thousands of documents This comes out of his ruling in the letitia James subpoena battle I reviewed thousands of documents and the attorney general's investigation has quote uncovered copious evidence of possible financial fraud I'm a Jersey guy I don't use big words like copious I would say tons of freaking fun Right Yeah And that's what a New York judge said And that's an informed opinion because in his opinion he said I reviewed thousands of documents that have been subpoenaed by tish James These are hugely ominous signs for Donald Trump So we are still generally heading in the right direction The investigative circle still

they've received accountability both from a state jury and some a federal jury And now the same thing has happened with the George Floyd murder and George Floyd's family They've now received

people can take solace in You know it's just money And I agree I absolutely agree with you that Donald Trump probably already is sort of de facto bankrupt And I also believe based on all the developments in the New York civil cases that the Trump organization is done It's completely done here I mean you know his accounting firm of walked away from ten years of work they did for Trump because he had been feeding them garbage numbers So maybe Trump is sitting in the reception room of an H and R block trying to find somebody to do his taxes right now But yes he's done on the

educate our journals We have journalists anymore We have advocates for Democrat party And unfortunately they also control colleges of law And so most lawyers are being cranked out and they're radical

"Brought to you by audible, letitia James does not want New York to be defined by the failings of a few men. Now she's running for governor by Charlotte altar. When New York attorney general letitia James was a little girl growing up in Brooklyn, she noticed that some women on the subway looked different from others. I would admire women who wore suits, business suits. She tells me during a 45 minute telephone interview on October 26th. Three days before she announced her bid for New York governor. The first woman of color I ever saw where a business suit was on the subway. She finally got her own first business suit in law school, but by then she was onto bigger professional thrills. It was surreal. She recalls. But what was even more surreal was stepping into a courtroom and defending someone falsely accused of a crime. When I asked her why there had never been a black woman governor anywhere in the U.S., she seemed to shrug. I tend not to focus on race. She said, instead, she was interested in how one uses power. When it comes to using power, James has carved out a record of using hers to as one New York political observer put it, go after bad guys. And even on the precipice of a race, which could make her the first black woman governor in American history, she turns the conversation away from her biography, preferring to talk about her track record instead. As New York attorney general, her office pursued investigations of financial malfeasance at the NRA, the Trump organization and the miscounting of COVID-19 nursing home deaths. She led a victorious effort to get up to $1.5 billion in restitution from opioid manufacturers to help New Yorkers confront the opioid crisis, and she kept her three year stint by overseeing the probe of former governor Andrew Cuomo's alleged sexual harassment of staff members that led to his resignation on August 10th. Next to all that, it seems tish James doesn't think the personal story of tish James is particularly interesting. I put my head down every day and I go to work. She says on our phone call, three days before she announced her candidacy. Her entrance into the New York gubernatorial race kicks off a contentious primary contest to challenge governor Cathy hoka. The state's first woman governor, who succeeded Cuomo after he was forced out. The high profile primary between a black woman with deep roots in progressive Brooklyn and a more moderate white incumbent from buffalo is shaping up to be a referendum on race, geography and ideology that could determine the direction of the New York Democratic Party, even as more potential candidates signal their considering entering the race. James 63 has made her own way in New York politics. She was the first black woman elected to citywide office in New York City as public advocate in 2013. The first woman of color elected to statewide office in New York as attorney general in 2018, and now she's seeking the highest office in the state. A bid that would make her the first woman and black person to be elected to the state's highest office. Her career is also tinged with political intrigue. James and Cuomo were allies when they ran in 2018, but her office oversaw the investigation that ultimately led to his downfall..
