Eric Trump flew into a panic on Wednesday morning after New York Attorney General Letitia James released a detailed court filing against his family’s business for committing fraud, even going so far as to threaten her with prosecution.
James has been investigating the Trump Organization for quite some time, and it appears that Donald Trump and all of his children are embroiled in the growing scandal. Tax and business fraud are serious crimes that come with hefty punishments. The Trump Organization can even be shuttered.
The 115-page filing really put the Trump family business dealings under a microscope for all to see. Now Eric Trump is freaking out, which he demonstrated by attacking and threatening James personally on Twitter along with posting a heavily doctored video.
Letitia you can not escape your own words. This is all window dressing for your abuse of office and ethical misconduct (which we are prosecuting you for) and northing more than a PR move to revive a political career after your gubernatorial disaster. @NewYorkStateAG https://t.co/7o5mlUp9PI pic.twitter.com/GXpIwThPDD

Of course, the Trumps do not have the power to prosecute James unless Eric Trump is signaling that his father will abuse presidential power if he were to somehow regain office after the 2024 Election to persecute her.
Legal experts and other Twitter users responded with mockery, pointing out that Eric Trump is panicking and that he certainly must have something to hide since he pleaded the Fifth 500 times during a deposition.
Eric has been in full panic mode over the NY investigation, and continues to personally attack and threaten the prosecutor. Today, he says they are PROSECUTING HER, which is incredibly dumb. They filed a ridiculous lawsuit to try and stop the investigation that will be tossed. pic.twitter.com/Ek0lG8Y8XS

This doesn’t smell like fear at all.

Judge:”When a defendant exerts his 5th Amendment rights,you should not read guilt into his statement.”
Jury:” How about 500 times?”

This is the part you are missing Eric, the AG has a strong case for fraud and other RICO related crimes.
This will make a fascinating crime family movie someday. https://t.co/u6wbsx7uuV

You’re absolutely terrified, and this tweet is pure confirmation of that.

The day that the Trump Organization is shut down and the Trump family is placed in handcuffs will be a joyous day in America.
