The Democrats have moved Heaven and Earth to take down Donald Trump.

But even leftists are getting concerned about the Democrats’ tactics.

And a Barack Obama legal adviser was furious after one absurd court ruling against Trump.

Among all the absurd lawfare aimed at Donald Trump, the worst might be New York Attorney General Letitia James’ fraud lawsuit against him.

James alleged that Trump inflated the value of his properties in order to get favorable loans, which were paid back with interest.

And Democrat Judge Arthur Engoron slapped Trump with an outrageous $354 million fine.

While many on the Left are celebrating, others are questioning the ridiculous verdict.

Legal scholar Alan Dershowitz was one of the few on the Left who were appalled by the case.

During an appearance on Fox News, host Sean Hannity asked Dershowitz, “You wrote a best-selling book ‘Get Trump.’ Where did you get the title for that book?”

A title straight from Letitia James

Dershowitz replied, “I didn’t make it up…I wish I were creative and original, but I got it from obviously Letitia James’s campaign. She ought to be brought up before the bar. You should not have an elected prosecutor campaigning on the promise to get a particular defendant. Now if she didn’t get him, she would lose the election. This is a variation of Stalin and [Lavrentiy] Beria back in the 1930s when the head of the KGB says to Stalin, ‘Show me the man, I’ll find you the crime.’ This is — show me the man, we know who it is. She told us who it was, Donald Trump, and we’ll find you the fraud even though there was no harm.”

It’s difficult to argue that James and the Democrats aren’t utilizing Stalinist tactics to go after Trump by any means necessary.

Dershowitz added, “Generally in our legal system, particularly under the system of equity when you don’t get a jury trial if it’s no harm, no foul, no harm, no fine, but when you have no damages at all. Usually, you can do a multiple…Say there’s a million dollars of damages, you can give $3 million fine. But when you have zero damages, no matter how many times you multiply it, zero plus and nth times whatever, is all still zero. So it’s outrageous. Now, I don’t know whether it’s going to be reversed in the appellate division.”

Question about missing injured party

The bank got its money back from Trump, so there is no injured party.

This was clearly a political persecution.

Dershowitz continued, “The appellate division is also elected judges mostly by Democrats in a county which is 85% Democrat… The New York Court of Appeals, which is the highest court, may indeed come and give justice. Generally, fines like this are reduced considerably, and that may very well happen in this case. But this tells us so much about the politicization of our justice system, the weaponization of our system. And it’s so dangerous because it will mean that business people are not going to want to run for office because they know if they run for office, partisans are going to go after them, investigate them, figure out some way of getting them, like overvaluation. You know, this is a judge, which over-evaluates when he wants to, $350 million for no damage, then under-evaluates when he wants to, Mar-a-Lago, $18 million. He’s just willing to manipulate the numbers to get him to the result he wanted. I hope the courts will look at this with a very, very, very stringent eye.”

The Democrats may have bitten off more than they can chew this time.

Businesspeople are going to be less likely to invest in New York after this $355 million fine.
