The incoming New York Attorney General says she will investigate President Trump, his family and anyone connected to the president who might have violated the law.
“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” Letitia James, a Democrat, told NBC News.
Keep in mind that there is no evidence or accusation that the president or anyone in his inner circle has committed criminal wrongdoing. In other words, she’s going to go on a hunting expedition for a crime.

Justice is based on investigating crimes and connecting them to people. Here, we have a liberal, anti-Trump prosecutor misusing her office to investigate people she doesn’t like, in search of a crime. This is not how justice works. https://t.co/aOU06GiEnf

“We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” James told NBC News.
Folks, this is what abuse of power looks like.
