NEW YORK (Yaakov M / VINnews) — Far-left Laetitia James has filed a massive lawsuit against the Trump family, accusing them of civil fraud.

This is another example of Trump-haters on the left weaponizing the justice system against the former President.

Even Bill Barr, who has been critical of President Trump recently, called this a “political hit job” and said this is an “example of…Trump derangement syndrome.”

This lawsuit by the Democrat NY Attorney General, who relishes the spotlight, is the latest in a series of political witch-hunts.

Donald Trump has been exonerated more times than Joe Biden has said “Come on man!”, yet they continue to find new things to investigate.

Former Attorney General William Barr said on Fox News that the suit is a “political hit job” and James is guilty of “gross overreach” for dragging Trump’s children in.

“It’s hard for me not to conclude it’s a political hit job,” Barr said. “I’m not even sure if she has a good case against Trump himself. But what ultimately persuades me that this is a political hit job is she grossly overreaches when she tries to drag the children into this.”

“Yes, they had roles in the business,” he continued. “But this was his personal financial statement. It was prepared by the CFO, accounting firms were involved in it. Listen, the children aren’t going to know the details of that … nor are they expected in the real world to do their own due diligence.”

James announced the $250 million civil lawsuit against Trump, in addition to Don Jr, Ivanka, and Eric. In the massive 200 page lawsuit, she accused the Trumps of manipulating asset value, and is seeking to ban them from being “an officer or director in any corporation” or similar entity in New York.

Both Eric and Donald Jr. have tweeted clips of James’s past remarks, in which she pledged to make life difficult for President Trump.

“I think [it] is gonna end up backfiring on them because I think it will make people sympathetic for Trump. This is another example of people piling on because of a Trump derangement syndrome,” Barr added.

Barr famously had a falling out with Trump at the end of his tenure, over Barr’s refusal to agree that the 2020 election was stolen.
