    The Facts

    • On Fri., a federal judge in Albany, NY dismissed a lawsuit filed by Trump that sought to halt NY Attorney General (AG) Letitia James' investigation into his business dealings.

    • The AG's office said they opened the investigation due to a 2019 congressional testimony by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who said Trump inflated and then deflated values of his assets for profit.


    The Spin

    Pro-Trump narrative

    James is doing everything in her power to interfere with Trump's business dealings and harm his reputation. There is no case here. She is simply attacking Trump to further her own political career.

    Democratic narrative

    Trump's baseless legal challenges will not stop James' lawful investigation into his organization's financial dealings. No one can pick and choose how the law applies to them, and Trump is no exception.
