Trump accused of another quid pro quo, this time with New York

'He's holding New York state hostage to try to stop investigations into his prior tax fraud,' tweeted Rep. Val Demings.


President Trump appeared to link his administration's policies toward New York to a demand that the state drop investigations and lawsuits related to his administration as well as his personal business and finances

'He's holding New York state hostage to try to stop investigations into his prior tax fraud,' tweeted Rep. Val Demings.

about the Trump Organization’s business practices. James also just secured a $2 million settlement from Trump’s now-defunct charitable foundation, which was accused of numerous violations of misuse of funds. The settlement prompted a sharp rebuke from Trump, who tweeted on Nov. 7 that James’ suit against the foundation was for “political purposes.” “When you stop violating the rights and liberties of all New Yorkers, we will stand down,” James said Thursday, responding to Trump’s tweet. “Until then, we have a duty and responsibility to defend the Constitution and the rule of law. BTW, I file the lawsuits, not the Governor.” Trump’s linkage of the investigations and lawsuits to his national security-related decisions involving New York immediately called back to House Democrats’ warning that Trump — if acquitted in last week’s impeachment trial — could leverage federal resources to coerce states to take actions that benefit him personally or politically. “An acquittal would also provide license to President Trump and his successors to use taxpayer dollars for personal political ends ... Presidents could also hold hostage federal funds earmarked for States — such as money for natural disasters, highways, and healthcare — unless and until State officials perform personal political favors,” the House wrote in its impeachment trial brief . “Any Congressional appropriation would be an opportunity for a President to solicit a favor for his personal political purposes — or for others to seek to curry favor with him. Such an outcome would be entirely incompatible with our constitutional system of self-government.” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler drew a link between Trump’s tweet about New York and the “quid pro quo” that got him impeached: withholding millions of dollars in military aid from Ukraine while demanding that the country investigate his Democratic rivals. “Dear @SenateGOP, This is what another quid pro quo by the President of the United States looks like,” , pointing to Trump’s comment. Some Capitol Hill Democrats compared Trump’s tweet to his July 25 conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky when, after Zelensky referenced the U.S. provision of Javelin missiles to Ukraine, Trump pivoted to a request for the country to investigate Democrats, including former vice president Joe Biden, a political rival who had announced a 2020 challenge against him.

Why do you think the memo was written? Barr will never allow Trump’s finance’s or taxes out. His business, his kids, and his family will never see a day in court. Individual 1 just skated while Mr. Cohen is sitting in jail. Cohen needs to start talking to a reporter! Un-f*cking-believable. Damn criminal.

Everytime I see Trump I think of Joss Ackland's character Ambassador Rudd in Lethal Weapon 2 when he shoots Riggs and then holds up his ID and says 'Diplomatic immunity.' 😲😲 Impeach him again!!!! Sparklebugg It’s how he’s always done business. And he’s (almost) always gotten away with it, so he thinks he should still be able to. 👿

TerriKincaid If he said that NY should issue charges against Trump post haste. He can get away with it. Call to all American Patriots: Please do understand that the Trump cult is dismantling your republic in real time. America will not survive another term under Trump and complicit crooked senators. Their loyalty is not to you, nor the Constitution. Only you can America by VOTING!

And why can’t he be Impeached for this? Anyone!! TheCheetoKing

So sad and disgusting! Unbelievable Ann67241 Of the corrupt Trump says I am more Nah the rump wouldn't do a dastardly thing like that...he's the chosen one, lying and revenge isn't in his holey make nor is that makeup on his blessed face Let’s hope he messed with the wrong Blue State! NY is run by a Cuomo, all us Italians gotta guy to take care of any situation!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Are you on board with this, GOP? Is this fine to you, JerryMoran and SenPatRoberts? Whoops he did it again... Aaaaannd there you have IT! Not that it makes ANY difference to the gop SenateGOP but, Trump is exercising his newly acquired Kingly authority over States rights. It all goes downhill from here.

Trump doesn’t want to go to prison. 'Appeared to to link'...grow some journalistic backbone. Is this another quid pro quo? I know in the immortal words of Mick Mulvaney “Get over it!” Sorry gents I can’t and I won’t. In my own small way I’m going to call you out. If I’m lucky there’ll be more like me doing the same thing.

New York state sues Trump admin over Global EntryAfter DHS banned New Yorkers from trusted traveler programs, New York Atty. General, Letitia James, called the move “political retribution.” She joins Ali Velshi to discuss why she’s suing the Trump administration for the 35th time, and explains why these programs are critical to New York’s economy. Immigrants do not have a “right” to come here. Our elected officials absolutely do have the right to control who enters and who doesn’t. Is it possible it's actually about local and national security... and NOT your pathetic identity politics & systemic victimhood? What bs.. The immigration problem has nothing to do with xenophobia and all to do with legality and security. You're FakeNews

Trump is now fully unrestrained. He will continue to commit his crimes out in the open. GOPBetrayedAmerica GOPCorruptionOverCountry TrumpCrimeSyndicate Will Barr acquiesce to this? Probably.

Appeared? No he did it. Call SenatorCollins, she's very good at recognizing quid pro quo He’s talking in general about New York investigating everybody and anybody relating to Donald Trump. Once again, if you’re not screaming RussiaCollusion, Impeach45, ImpeachBarr, QuidProQuo, you probably wouldn’t feel normal. JohnDurham’sReportComing DemocratsWillBurn

ImpeachTrumpAgain QUID PRO QUO, in plain sight. Trump must be held accountable for his corrupt, criminal behavior, or our Democracy and Freedoms are null and void 45 is SO unethical. There’s no bottom. VoteBlueNoMatterWho in November’s General Election. SaveDemocracy Barone1T 'APPEARED' Is that really the correct word?! It's like charting to not take responsibility.

He’s not a king! WTFrick! The Big Orange Ball of Failure can Huff & Puff all he wants yet, New York State voters elects their Attorney General not the governor! The NYS Attorney General decides investigations NOT the governor! So realDonaldTrump is wasting his time trying to strong-arm Gov. Cuomo!

ImpeachTheMFAgain It's NOT business, it's PERSONAL Can someone not leak his documents from Deutsche bank ? Surely someone has a copy Yeah that's not sketchy at all. Trump‘s brazenness is mind-blowing

Hopefully NYGovCuomo wore a wire Enough is enough. Sounds like a “bribe”...? REPEACH No. Prosecute AG BillBarr...he's talking to you! How could someone be so stupid? 'Appeared to link his administration policies...' HE DID IT. ITS CLEAR AS DAY. LindseyGrahamSC senatemajldr Enough, find your spine, grow some balls, love your country, he is totally off piste. This is shocking


SteveLemongello Drag him! Of course he said nothing of the sort. You can interpret it however you want but in plain words it in no way says this Ramp up the investigations, New York. Fuck this guy. IOW a quid pro quo Time for a sequel 'Appeared' -- the media still mesmerized, covering Mr. Trump just like they swoon over David Copperfield illusions. This ain't no magic act, there's nothing hidden. Wake-up.🍸
