Trump Attorney Sounds Alarm Over NY AG Letitia James Amid Civil Fraud Case: "She Campaigned on Trump"

Former President Donald Trump's attorney, Alina Habba, sounded the alarm over New York Attorney General Letitia James amid the ongoing civil fraud case against Trump, arguing that James' campaign promises and public statements about Trump have compromised her ability to be impartial in the case.

"Letitia James campaigned on Trump," Habba told Fox News Digital in an exclusive interview. "She made it very clear that she was going to go after him, regardless of whether or not there was any evidence of wrongdoing."

Habba argued that James' campaign promises and public statements about Trump have created a "cloud of suspicion" over the case and have raised concerns about James' ability to be fair and impartial.

"James has made it clear that she is not interested in justice," Habba said. "She is interested in politics. And that is a dangerous precedent to set."

James' office has rejected Habba's claims, arguing that James is committed to fair and impartial justice.

"The Attorney General has a long and distinguished record of prosecuting fraud and other crimes, regardless of who the defendant is," James' office said in a statement. "She is committed to ensuring that everyone is held accountable under the law."

The civil fraud case against Trump alleges that Trump and his company inflated the value of their assets by billions of dollars in order to obtain loans and other financial benefits. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has accused James of waging a politically motivated witch hunt against him.

The case is still ongoing, and it is unclear how it will ultimately be resolved. However, Habba's comments raise concerns about James' ability to be fair and impartial in the case, and they could potentially impact the outcome of the case.
