Democrat NY AG Letitia James Now Bails Out Of Governor’s Race After Taking Down Cuomo

Letitia James, New York State Attorney General, suspended her brief gubernatorial run within hours after she announced a request to depose former President Donald Trump.

James as AG was in charge of investigating sexual harassment allegations that brought down Andrew Cuomo. James said her decision to bail out is because she wanted to concentrate on the ongoing investigations her agency is conducting.

“I have come to the conclusion that I must continue my work as attorney general,” she announced. “There are a number of important investigations and cases that are underway, and I intend to finish the job.”

James stated that she will run for Attorney General again.

Trump is the target of Letitia James

Letitia James’ announcement comes within hours of announcing a move to get a deposition from former President Trump in her civil probe into possible fraud by the Trump Organization.

NBC reports that James’s office is investigating whether or not the organization committed fraud by underreporting the value of properties to banks and tax authorities.

The Washington Post published the initial report on January 7th’s deposition.

One source told the Post that Letitia James is examining whether widespread fraud “permeated the Trump Organization.”

The Trump Organization issued a statement calling James’ investigation a “political witch-hunt.”

“The only focus of the New York AG is to investigate Trump, all for her own political ambitions. … This political prosecution is illegal, unethical and is a travesty to our great state and legal system,” they wrote.

Cuomo Was Removed

Letitia James was the New York Attorney General and played an important role in the disgraceful former Governor Andrew Cuomo’s fall.

James released a report in August that claimed Cuomo “sexually harassed multiple women” and “violated federal and state law.”

Although she did not bring charges against Cuomo, the report has been widely acknowledged as having put enough pressure on him to force his resignation.

Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi has repeatedly referred to James’ report as a “politically motivated sham.”

“Tish James used her office to attack the Governor for her own political benefit,” Azzopardi said just prior to her announcement that she would run.

This announcement was made less than two years ago.

Although Cuomo is not a candidate for the highest office, James’s assertion that he has ambitions to be a politician of higher rank is undisputedly true. ShouldFor several scandals, they were impeached and removed from office.

A recent report by the New York Post revealed that Cuomo is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) over the sexual harassment claims as well as the “administration’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, its cover-up of nursing home deaths, and Cuomo’s $5.1 coronavirus memoir.”

The question now becomes – Is James seeking nationwide office by becoming the poster child for the resistance in going after the former President?

Or maybe it’s a little simpler than that.

Recent polls showed that Kathy Hochul (Gov. after Cuomo was fired) had 36% support from democrats, while James had only 18%.
