'Political Hit Job': Bill Barr Blasts Letitia James, Predicts Trump Suit Will Backfire

Former Attorney General William Barr slammed a lawsuit against his onetime boss, former President Donald Trump, highlighting its political undertones.

Barr contended that it is hard not to conclude that the suit, announced Wednesday by New York Attorney General Letitia James, is a “political hit job” and jabbed at James for engaging in “gross overreach” by dragging Trump’s children into the suit, hypothesizing that the legal tiff will backfire against her.

“It’s hard for me not to conclude it’s a political hit job,” Barr told Fox News. “I’m not even sure if she has a good case against Trump himself. But what ultimately persuades me that this is a political hit job is she grossly overreaches when she tries to drag the children into this.”

James unveiled a massive $250 million civil lawsuit against Trump, three of his adult children, and management at the Trump Organization, alleging they engaged in a pattern of fraudulent and deceptive business practices.
