Elie Honig, a senior legal analyst for the left-wing cesspool known as CNN, explained the biggest issue he has with the lawsuit brought against former President Donald Trump by New York Attorney General Letitia James during a segment that aired on Thursday morning. Other than the fact that it’s bogus and just an attempt to weaponize the legal system against Trump to remove him from the presidential playing field ahead of the 2024 election?
“James’ office alleges in a civil fraud lawsuit that Trump, his sons and the Trump Organization inflated his net worth by roughly $2.2 billion. Trump has testified he had ‘very little, if any,’ involvement in the financial statements of his company, according to CNN,“ the Daily Caller reported.
“This is a big case, it’s a big civil case involving hundreds of millions of dollars. But it’s also the fifth most important case Trump is facing right now after the four criminal cases,” Honig said to host Phil Mattingly. “That deposition is really interesting. Trump argues, ‘Because of the Trump name, I could have even claimed it was double or triple the value.’ There’s no question he inflated the assets.”
“But the problem with the case is no one really got defrauded because the banks on the other end, the banks who were making those lines, they decided we’re going to make these loans and they got repaid with interest and they made profits,” Honig added during the segment. “That’s why it wasn’t charged criminally. Technically, is it fraud, yes, but you don’t have a victim, which make it is less appealing as a criminal case.”
The New York Attorney General launched the case into Trump last year (2022), claiming that Trump gave false information on his financial statements in order to “unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system.”
Enrich himself? Is James kidding around here? There’s no way she’s legitimately serious about this. Trump is a billionaire. He doesn’t need more money. And he’s not the type to sneak around and do unlawful things in order to accumulate more wealth, especially since he doesn’t actually NEED more money. In fact, when Trump became president, he lost a lot of cash. He made that sacrifice because he believes in the values and principles the country was founded on and wanted to do something to preserve them for his children and grandchildren.

No matter how you slice the cheese, this whole thing is about taking Trump out, politically speaking. The left is desperate to either destroy his presidential campaign or disqualify him from being able to participate in the election. Biden’s performance as commander-in-chief has been so awful they are doing everything in their power to prevent Trump, who had a strong performance record from his time in the White House, from having a rematch with him.
Which means they know the outcome of such a race already. Trump wins. And that means the dismantling of their agenda. You see, the radical progressives in this nation truly believe that mankind can reach perfection and have a utopian society. We just need the right — elite — leaders in positions of power, the right laws, and the apparatus to enforce those laws on anyone who might try to hinder their progress toward building what they think will be heaven on earth.
This is just a pipe dream. People are not perfect and cannot be perfect. Individual freedom is the only real system that works. And we need leaders in office who understand that to be our voices in government, fighting back against the insanity of the progressive worldview.
