Former President Donald Trump’s New York civil trial has led to claims of political interference by Attorney General Letitia James.

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig supported Trump’s assertion, citing James’ campaign promises to target Trump.

Despite being cautioned not to make a “campaign speech,” Trump expressed his grievances in court, alleging election interference and coordination with the White House and Joe Biden. (Trending: GOP Rep. Mace Clashes Directly With Hunter Biden At Hearing)

He criticized the trial as unfair, lacking a jury and constitutional rights.

“Letitia James campaigned for attorney general in 2018 specifically on a promise of ‘vote for me and I’ll get Donald Trump,’” Honig said.

“That’s not something she said once. She said it dozens of times, she said it in writing, she fundraised off it, and she wasn’t even specific. She didn’t say ‘I’ll get him for inflating his assets.’ At one point she said he could be indicted for money laundering… The day after she was elected, she said, and I quote, ‘We’re definitely going to sue his ass. He’ll know my name.’”

“When you make statements like that, how can you say there’s no political angle to this?” he asked.

“We consider this unconstitutional… it’s election interference at the highest level, it’s a disgrace,” Trump said.

“It’s in coordination with the White House and Joe Biden, because he can’t win a campaign fairly. And we’re going through it, but it is indeed a terrible witch hunt.”

“At this moment, the judge is not letting me make this summation because I’ll bring up things that he doesn’t want to hear,” he added.

“And it’s a very unfair trial, nobody’s seen anything like this. I don’t think they’ve ever seen anything like this. We have a situation where a statute was used that doesn’t give me a jury. So, I have no jury, I really have no rights, and it’s sad.”

“And nobody, nobody thinks it’s constitutional, people. Legal scholars are writing about it like it’s something they’ve never seen before. So, it’s interference, its political interference, and it’s something that shouldn’t be allowed.”

The trial has raised concerns about political interference and the denial of rights.
