Donald Trump Jr., along with his brother Eric Trump, the older sons of former President Donald Trump, got on social media where they issued a scathing response to the news Wednesday of a lawsuit being filed by New York Attorney General’s office concerning accusations of fraud against the Trump Organization and the adult Trump children, which includes daughter Ivanka.
Newsmax is reporting, “After hearing about the $250 million lawsuit — covering accusations of widespread fraud and claiming false financial statements related to the Trump Organization — Donald Trump Jr. produced four consecutive posts for his Twitter audience of 8.5 million followers.”
“The first tweet was a retweet of an old video, when then-New York AG candidate Letitia James promised she would prioritize the targeting of former President Trump once she got into office,” the report said.
Here’s more from the report:
It’s unclear if James had full access to documents pertaining to the Trump Organization or former President Trump at the time of that video.
The second Tweet was a response to a @TrumpWarRoom post about James. For this post, James was giving another speech about her plans to sue Trump.
This prompted Donald Trump Jr. to write, “This is all about politics. Weaponizing her office to go after her political opponents!”
In a third tweet, which was pinned to the younger Donald’s account, Trump Jr. shows more video evidence of James seeming to lock onto the notion of suing the elder Trump even before taking office.
As a caption above the video, Trump Jr. wrote “The [expletive” Dem witch-hunt continues!”

In the fourth tweet in his barrage against the lawsuit, he posted up a poll graph, which came from Insider Advantage, that revealed AG James is currently trailing behind her GOP challenger by 1.2 percentage points for the November general election. For the caption above the graph, the younger Donald said, “Letitia James doesn’t care about the law. She’s a Dem activist, who only cares about politics.”
“Here’s the most recent poll in her reelection race. So she’s now desperately trying to fire up her leftwing base with this BS. This is ALL politics, nothing more,” he continued. “Disgraceful!!!”
Over on the Truth Social app, Eric Trump posted up several similar videos of James making campaign promises concerning bringing down the Trump family just before she took office.
Eric Trump did include editorial notes in two posts:
Post #1: “‘Not a political “witch-hunt?!’ What a joke!”
Post #2: “Letitia James is the most corrupt Attorney General in United States History — she campaigned on the promised to sue my father … watch for yourself!”
And for the third Truth post, Eric Trump shared the same poll graph of Republican challenger Michael Henry currently appearing to edge out James in the Insider Advantage poll.
Eric Trump included a brief message to support the post, saying, “Letitia James Polls — not shocking that she is filing a lawsuit against @realDonaldTrump 49 days before her election.”
Former President Donald Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, told Newsmax in a statement released on Wednesday, that,”Today’s filing is neither focused on the facts nor the law — rather, it is solely focused on advancing the Attorney General’s political agenda. It is abundantly clear that the Attorney General’s Office has exceeded its statutory authority by prying into transactions where absolutely no wrongdoing has taken place.”
Habba went on to say, “We are confident that our judicial system will not stand for this unchecked abuse of authority, and we look forward to defending our client against each and every one of the Attorney General’s meritless claims.”
This is definitely a part of the witch-hunt.
Democratic candidates know that if they want to fire up their radical base, then they need to launch attacks against the Trumps. It’s the hot ticket into the limelight. Of course, for many of these folks it’s also what kills their political career, but hey, that doesn’t stop them from still trying to use the strategy.
