Tax fraud | Trump has filed a lawsuit against a New York lawyer to prevent a trial

(New York) Former U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday filed a lawsuit against New York State Attorney Leticia James in an attempt to block an investigation into suspected tax fraud by his family business Trump organization.

The lawsuit, filed in state federal court, was filed by Democrats who allegedly violated the former president’s constitutional rights by prosecuting him for political reasons.

“Its purpose is driven only by political hostility and the desire to harass, intimidate and retaliate against anyone who considers a simple citizen a political enemy,” the complaint reads.
