Trump News Today – Live: Donald Trump is suing Letitia James of New York as Kash Patel to testify in Mar-a-Lago case

Donald Trump says Twitter has become “very boring” since it was banned

Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James, alleging “extraordinary misconduct” and starting a “war of intimidation and harassment” against him.

In a 41-page filing in Florida State Circuit Court in Palm Beach, he sought to prevent Ms. James from obtaining documents from a revocable trust in Florida that owns the Trump Organization.

It comes as Mr Trump’s key adviser, Kash Patel, is due to testify before a grand jury investigating the handling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago after he was granted immunity from prosecution. The Wall Street Journal reported.

Mr. Patel is a close advisor to the former President and maintains a personal relationship with him. He was appointed one of its official representatives to the National Archives and Records Administration.

Mr. Patel’s testimony was sought after he was subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in October, but he invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Mr Patel has claimed Mr Trump declassified White House documents while he was still President.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump has settled a lawsuit filed by a group of protesters who say they were attacked by the Republican’s private security forces during his 2015 presidential campaign.

Trump 2024 campaign prepares to launch after the midterms

Playing in front of a crowd of fans in Robstown, Texas, former President Donald Trump drew cheers as he addressed his first two runs for the White House – and teased a third.

“To make our country prosperous, safe and glorious again, I’ll probably have to do it all over again,” he said last month.

The carefully placed “probably” may soon be gone from Trump’s stump speech. Aides to the former president are making quiet preparations for a 2024 presidential campaign that could launch shortly after next week’s midterm elections, while Trump seeks to capitalize on expected Republican victories to position himself as the front-runner for his party’s nomination.

Trump settles lawsuit from protesters over 2015 scuffle

Donald Trump has settled a lawsuit filed by a group of Mexican protesters who say they were beaten up by the Republican’s private security forces during his 2015 presidential campaign.

The two sides, who agreed as a jury, were selected for a civil trial in a New York courtroom, one of a spate of legal entanglements involving the former president.

Details of the settlement in the protesters’ lawsuit were not disclosed.

“While we were keen to go to court to demonstrate the frivolity of this case, the parties were ultimately able to reach an amicable resolution,” said Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba. “We are very pleased with this outcome and look forward to finally settling this matter once and for all.”

Trump sues New York’s Letitia James over ‘war of intimidation and harassment’

Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James, alleging “extraordinary misconduct” and starting a “war of intimidation and harassment” against him.

In a 41-page filing in Florida State Circuit Court in Palm Beach, he sought to prevent Ms. James from obtaining documents from a revocable trust in Florida that owns the Trump Organization.

“Extraordinary misconduct requires extraordinary relief,” the lawsuit states. “As set forth below, James has repeatedly abused her position as Attorney General for the State of New York to wage an unrelenting, damaging, public and all-out crusade against President Trump, a resident of Palm Beach County, Florida, with the stated aim of personally financially and politically.”

Mr Trump alleges that the New York Attorney General is violating his privacy by seeking details of his trust.

It comes after Ms James last month filed a civil lawsuit against Mr Trump and his family members over alleged financial fraud.

Trump attorneys fighting election results saw Thomas as key

Lawyers supporting former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election considered an appeal to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “key” to their success, emails reveal to investigators of Congress and published on Wednesday.

The December 2020 emails show the attorneys discussing ways to delay certification of the results in Georgia, a hard-fought state won by Democrat Joe Biden. One attorney, Kenneth Chesebro, suggested that an appointment to Thomas as the judge handling 911 calls from Georgia “might be key here.”

“We want to set things up so that Thomas could be the one issuing some sort of residency or other circuit judiciary statement saying that Georgia has reasonable doubts,” Chesebro wrote. “Realistically, our only chance of getting a favorable court opinion by January 6th that could stall the indictment of Georgia in Congress is from Thomas.”
