Trump Demands NY Drop Its ‘Unnecessary Lawsuits’ As He Freezes Travel Program

Ah the Dear Leader is openly using the government to get states to stop investigating his crimes.   The threat is clear.   This is another jump down the road of fascism.   tRump is not even trying to hide it anymore, he revels in it.   His cult loves it, to them it looks like he is a tough guy.   They miss the point that he is trying to avoid his crimes being exposed.   The country is run by a crime boss and his henchmen cult followers.    Hugs

Trump Demands NY Drop Its ‘Unnecessary Lawsuits’ As He Freezes Travel Program

It looks like New York is the new Ukraine.

On Thursday, Trump made a veiled threat toward the state of New York, home of multiple lawsuits against him, ahead of his meeting with New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D) to discuss the Department of Homeland Security’s freeze on its “Trusted Travelers” programs for New Yorkers. The freeze was enacted last week in response to New York’s new law that allows undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses and prevents ICE and CBP from accessing New York’s DMV records.

The comment appeared to be a threat to force the state to drop the numerous lawsuits New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed against his aggressive anti-immigration policies, including the “Trusted Travelers” program freeze. She is also currently investigating the Trump Organization and has subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for the President’s financial records in her inquiry.

James fired back at Trump, tweeting that her state would cease the lawsuits “when you stop violating the rights and liberties of all New Yorkers.”

“Until then, we have a duty and responsibility to defend the Constitution and the rule of law,” she wrote. “BTW, I file the lawsuits, not the Governor.”

  1. I read this as well. Along with his “veiled threat,” my concern is … because I don’t know enough about these things … can he “fire” this Attorney General?

    • Hello Nan. No he can not. He can only fire federal AG’s, but this one is a state AG. How ever it has become clear he has interfered with the NYSD that had so many open investigations into his business and into Flynn and Cohen. I got an alert I have not had a chance to read that Barr was assigning an outside prosecutor in the Flynn case. This is a scary time for the country. The Senate Republicans may have doomed the country. Hugs
