Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that former presidents cannot be investigated and brought to trial, but Donald Trump is insisting that it’s unconstitutional anyway in a new rage-filled statement against New York Attorney General Letitia James.
After a judge recently ruled that Trump and his three adult kids must testify as part of the civil suit brought against the Trump Organization by James’ office, Trump predictably lashed out with a temper tantrum posted on Twitter by a still not suspended surrogate account.
Trump, whose own accounting firm just dumped him and admitted his financial statements are unreliable, began by attacking Hillary Clinton with an accusation of spying that has no evidence backing it up.
Then he whined while referring to himself in the third person about James and the lawsuit against him.
“Failed Gubernatorial candidate, Letitia James, can run for the office of AG on saying absolutely horrendous and false things about Donald Trump, a man she doesn’t know and has never met, go on to get elected, and then selectively prosecute him and his family,” Trump complained.
Fun fact: James never lied about Trump on the campaign trail and prosecutors take people they have never met to court all the time.
“The targeting of a President of the United States, who got more votes while in office than any President in History, by far, and is a person that the Radical Left Democrats don’t want to run again, represents an unconstitutional attack on our Country—and the people will not allow this travesty of justice to happen,” he continued. “It is a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in history—and remember, I can’t get a fair hearing in New York because of the hatred of me by Judges and the judiciary. It is not possible!”
President Donald J. Trump:

In fact, nothing in the Constitution prevents an investigation into a former president, nor does it prevent a former president from being indicted and prosecuted. Trump and his business appear to have committed serious financial crimes such as tax fraud and racketeering. Furthermore, no one is above the law in the United States.
It also bears repeating once again that Trump did not receive the most votes in history. That distinction belongs to President Joe Biden, who received over 81 million votes, seven million more than Trump.
Clearly, Trump is continuing his strategy of flailing and screaming like a desperate and guilty man.
