The FDNY commissioner has faced criticism for planning to investigate New York City firefighters who jeered and chanted “Trump, Trump, Trump” when Attorney General Letitia James spoke at an FDNY promotion ceremony.

James had previously vowed to take down former President Donald Trump.

After the incident, the FDNY chief of department urged those involved to come forward voluntarily to avoid being pursued by an investigation reviewing video of the ceremony.

A firefighter criticized the response as targeting those exercising free speech rights.

“It was a political stunt for the city to have the AG there. When it backfired, they sent their fascist pit bulls after guys for exercising their First Amendment rights,” the firefighter stated.

FDNY officials later said they were only looking into those who clearly broke department regulations prohibiting political behavior, not politics.

FDNY spokesman Jim Long said, “Nobody is hunting anyone down. We’re looking into those who clearly broke department regulations. It has nothing to do with politics. It’s about professionalism at an official event held in a house of worship.”

James has been publicly taunting Trump over a $354.8 million court fine against him in a civil fraud case, which he plans to appeal.
