It’s obvious at this point that Former President Donald Trump is facing legal attacks from all angles. Whether it be the federal government or the progressive prosecutors in his former home state of New York, the establishment is certainly working overtime to defeat Trump.
But failure is not an option and the Former President always takes the attacks in stride.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump gave a deposition before New York Attorney General Letitia James. He “declined to answer” her bogus questions, slamming the entire investigation as “an unfounded, politically motivated Witch Hunt.”

In a statement released to Trump’s Truth Social account, the Former President refers to AG James as a “racist” who “openly campaigned on the policy of ‘Get and Destroy Trump.'”

James had battled Trump and two of his children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr., for months in court to enforce a subpoena demanding testimony. Her office issued the subpoena last year, and the family filed a flurry of court challenges. Eventually, a judge quashed the trio’s appeals and demanded their compliance.
Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump have reportedly already delivered testimony for the attorney general’s inquiry.
Coinciding with his lengthy statement disparaging the inquiry, Donald Trump also posted a slew of scathing videos Wednesday bashing James and highlighting past comments she made vowing to be a “pain in the a**” to him.

In 2019, James opened the sprawling inquiry into the Trump family empire in response to testimony former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen gave to Congress about the Trump Organization’s business dealings. Cohen asserted that the company would increase its valuations when pursuing business deals and downgrade its valuations to save on taxes.
Donald Trump has denied any wrongdoing.
Beyond the legal attack in New York, the Former President is also under federal scrutiny as well. Earlier this week, the FBI executed a raid on his Mar-a-Lago property. Trump is set to face another legal attack by Fulton County DA Fani Willis over an investigation into the 2020 election — a state version of the House Select Committee.
Try as they might, Donald Trump isn’t going anywhere. His supports grow exponentially, and the endless attacks against him merely fuel his base. Deep State officials and the D.C. Swamp are martyrizing Trump, and it’s working.
