Attorney General James Responds to Trump’s Unfounded Attacks

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James tonight released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s unfounded remarks earlier in which he made attacks on the integrity of last month’s election and complained about an ongoing investigation into the Trump Organization:

“As the independently elected attorney general of New York, I have a sworn duty to protect and uphold state law. Last year, after Michael Cohen’s testimony, our office opened an investigation into the financial dealings of the Trump Organization. That investigation continues today. Unlike the president and the unfounded accusations he hurled today, we are guided by the facts and the law, and the politics stop at the door. Period.”
