Top Fundraiser For Obama Drops The Hammer On NY AG James Over Trump Case

Top Fundraiser For Obama Drops The Hammer On NY AG James Over Trump Case

A former campaign bundler for the presidential campaigns of former President Obama is speaking out and shredding New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Florida real estate mogul Don Peebles appeared on Fox News and said that former President Donald Trump is being punished for a “victimless crime” that “should never have been brought.”

“Had it not been [Trump], it wouldn’t have been brought because there’s never been a case like this before,” he said to host Neil Cavuto. “I think that is an example of why Trump continues to rise in the polls. They are making him into a martyr.”

Peebles, who is black, has supported several progressive causes, including the Congressional Black Caucus, but when asked what the former president could offer as collateral, he issued a word of warning for wealthy business people.

“This case amplifies that it’s very difficult to do business in New York, and if you happen to be a wealthy, successful entrepreneur, watch out because the government can be used to weaponize [against] you, especially if you get out of line and do something that the far-left doesn’t like,” the real estate mogul said.

“They will not hesitate to disrupt your business or, worse, put you in jail,” he said.

And he was not the only person to voice the same opinion.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey tore into James this week for moving to seize former President Donald Trump’s assets.

Bailey appeared on ‘Fox & Friends First’ to discuss the latest Trump civil case in New York City and why he believes there is no legal justification for seizing his assets.

“This is a gross miscarriage of justice. Letitia James is masquerading as a competent attorney. There is no reference to case law, and no legal authority for what she is doing. This was a civil fraud trial and the claim was banks gave loans to President Trump based on misrepresentation,” Bailey began.

“Letitia James is not going after the banks for providing those loans. President Trump is a brilliant businessman and made tons of money for these banks, and every investor and Letitia James hates that and his success,” he added.

“Shark Tank” star Kevin O’Leary has come out against the “outrageous” $454 million bond former President Donald Trump has been ordered to pay in his New York civil fraud case.

During an interview on Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” O’Leary argued that the “extraordinary” penalty is “an attack on America.” He also addressed the news that Trump’s attorneys revealed in court that the ex-president hasn’t been able to secure the massive bond, which could lead to New York Attorney General Letitia James moving to seize some of Trump’s properties in the Big Apple.

“This is the United States of America under siege,” O’Leary said.
