Welcome to North Korean system of justice thanks to the New York Democratic Party. N. Korea has a 3 generation rule in which all 3 generations of anyone opposed by the government is punished.

It is not longer investigating crimes. It is investigating the "family and associates" of political opposition searching for any way to prosecute any of them for anything.

Once again, there is still another reason why everyone should vote straight Republican in every election for every office. If not, you can find yourself swamped with Democratic obtained search warrants and a SWAT teams at 5am kicking in your door to seize all your records, cell phone and computer seeking any basis to at least have you secretly indicted by a grand jury and imprisoned until trial - locked in solitary and no bond allowed. Why? Because your nephew is in a civil lawsuit with the Democratic local sheriff over the purchase of a used car. This is the new definition and purpose of the criminal justice system to the Democratic Party.

But let's see if any Democrat dare condemn this Then again, who dare do so or it may be your kids and friends targeted.

Delusional blathering. We are nothing like NK and this is nothing like how their system of justice operates.

Delusional blathering. It's only about investigating crimes and only ever has been and will be.

So you are saying NBC and lying and it she never said that?

No mention was made of investigating any crime by her. It is a promise to investigate Trump's family and associates in search of crimes.

When was the last time a prosecutor investigated all of your family members and associated searching for a crime?

I have no interest in the part of your message's homophobic gay bashing.

It would help a lot of the Republicans would refrain from nominating corrupt individuals. Moreover, when you surround yourself with corrupt individuals, you are going to find yourself in the investigative crosshairs.

Why do you spend so much energy defending this obvious corruption? Do you want you government to be run by corrupt individuals? Do you not love your country?

BTW, the new New York AG is merely telling us that she is going to rigorously pursue the investigations that are ongoing. Almost all of the things she told us she plans to pursue are ongoing NY investigations.

Wrong. There is ample evidence of Trump and his children (since they're part of his business and organization) having committed financial crimes, especially involving the Russian mob, fraud and tax fraud for years through the business. Trump, his kids and his companies are all one and the same in that regard.

Super basic stuff, but your need to pretend it's some huge NK-like conspiracy is understandable.

This is going to be a bitch of a new year for Trump worshipers.

And it's going to be fun to watch.

Are you saying potential criminal activities shouldn't be investigated simply because one of the offenders might be the President?

If you want positive search results, do positive things.
If you want to avoid investigations, don't do criminal things.

Holding those in power accountable to an impartial justice system makes us like NK? Oh Joko.

I certainly hope the new AG of NY understands the serious precedence she is setting for any and all future POTUS, their family members and their circle of acquaintances.
This should be worrisome for us all, but I am betting the left will not condemn Letitia James promise to go out of her way to investigate President Donald Trump, his family and "anyone" in his circle who she thinks "may have violated the law." The Geheime Staatspolizei (Gestapo) comes to mind... :shock:

The trump’s are looking more and more like a crime family. It isn’t a generational investigation, it’s criminal investigations into trump’s family because they are all involved.

I'm not sure if you're serious? Trump has tried to buddy up to Kim Jong Un, and was even his willing Bottom Boy.

But your justice system is nothing like theirs, and imo should be trying to catch criminals. Jesus, Trump is nothing more than a common racist flimflam man, scamming anyone he can along the way. He and his family definitely should be investigated. Perhaps you can explain to me why so many conservatives are so desperate to see certain possible criminals escape justice?

She's not setting any precedence, whatsoever. Crimes have been investigated since we've had a government. There is nothing to condemn about her doing her job.

The Gestapo only comes to mind for those who think Alex Jones and Pizzagate were credible.

I don't know what the OP is saying, but I am saying that declaring one will be investigating to FIND a crime to prosecute is the antithesis of justice.

The fact that so many people think this is a good idea shows just how far away they have come from rationalism/liberty and how close to totalitarianism.

Show me the man and I'll find you the crime.

Except that's not what's happening. Inflammatory rhetoric aside, the OP's article makes it clear they'll be investigating existing allegations of wrongdoing:

James outlined some of the probes she intends to pursue with regard to the president, his businesses and his family members. They include:

Any illegalities involving Trump's real estate holdings in New York, highlighting the October New York Times investigation into the president's finances.
The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian official.
Examine government subsidies Trump received, which were also the subject of Times investigative work.
Whether he is in violation of the emoluments clause in the U.S. Constitution through his New York businesses.
Continue to probe the Trump Foundation.


If it was happening how it's portrayed in the OP, I'd be right along side you saying it's a misuse of the justice systems. But given that, so far, only existing allegations and suspicious circumstances are being investigated, it's the justice system being used in a partisan, but proper manner.

Holding criminals accountable? Yes, very worried about that precedent.

Well, I have no problem with investigating any actual crime.

However, since when has possible violations of the "emoluments clause" been an issue of State's criminal jurisdiction?

Moreover, this sounds ominous to me:

We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law," (and ) James campaigned on passing a bill to change New York's double jeopardy laws with an eye on possible pardons coming out of the White House.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/poli...trump-and-family/ar-BBQQ0Oa?OCID=ansmsnnews11

Looking for people in his "orbit" to find out if they have violated the law so as to prosecute them, AND trying to subvert double-jeopardy protection?

Neither sounds like justice to me. It sounds like a witch-hunt at the State level, and a desire to pursue vengeance via eliminating double-jeopardy protections guaranteed by the 5th Amendment.

I mentioned a case pending before SCOTUS, I brought up here:

https://www.debatepolitics.com/us-c...-case-ruling-might-let-manafort-off-hook.html

That case will hopefully eliminate the separate sovereigns exception which violates the spirit of the 5th Amendment protection.

That POTUSes, their families and their families shouldn't be liftetime criminals? Traditionally speaking, that really hasn't been a problem until now.

There's not much there I disagree with. The rhetoric around this is worrying, as are concerns about jurisdiction and changing double jeopardy. But if the investigation is kept to substantiated criminal activity, there's no down side to it.

Why? Because your nephew is in a civil lawsuit with the Democratic local sheriff over the purchase of a used car.

The gestapo didn't operate under a system public judicial system. If this sets a precedence for investigations of any allegations of illegal activity that come out when the wealthy transition from private to public sector, that can only be a good thing.

Oh no doubt. And since Letitia James is a Cuomo Synchophant. How much do you want to bet all of the corruption investigations he and his cronies (Buffalo Billion, anyone?) is going to get quashed?

Ongoing investigations demand she do such. From OP article:

The most prominent litigation between the attorney general's office and the president involves the Trump Foundation. Schneiderman began probing the charity in 2016 and Underwood later filed the lawsuit against Trump, his adult children and the foundation in June.

The foundation is accused of engaging in illegal political coordination with the Trump campaign, self-dealing and violating legal obligations. The Trumps and the foundation could face millions of dollars in penalties as a result. Trump's lawyers tried and failed to have the case thrown out in New York state Supreme Court, alleging the probe was politically motivated.

Underwood also was investigating whether Trump has violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which generally prohibits federal officials from receiving gifts or payments from foreign or state governments.


What should her announcement be, that's she's dropping the investigations?

I don't know much about the above, the Buffalo Billion? Since you do, and you are a resident of NY, care to elaborate on your point?
