Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell criticized New York Attorney General Letitia James for her politically motivated prosecution of Donald Trump, noting James had promised in campaign videos to target Trump in court.

Terrell argued James colluded with a biased judge to try preventing Trump from running for office again by destroying his business and livelihood.

“Bankrupt him under the phony law and phony prosecutor. I don’t know, when I was a young attorney if you were running for office to be the attorney general of the state and you said you’re going to target Donald Trump, ‘I’m going to get Donald Trump,’ … it would be brought to the bar,” Fox News’ Mark Levin said.

“You are not allowed to run for office, much less a prosecutorial office, and to make claims like that under any rules of ethical conduct in any state that I am aware of. It is so corrupt. Is the bar filled with Democrats who have not said or done anything? What about the legal profession now? What you make of that?” Levin asked.

He said the New York bar has been offensive in allowing this conduct, which should be reversed on appeal as not true justice but political warfare.

“Look, let me be clear, there is no legal profession in New York. What you just articulated, I will be as clear as possible. Letitia James is a racist. She targeted Trump. I submit to the following evidence — the videotape of her claiming that if she gets into office, she will go after Trump,” Terrell said.

“And then she colludes with a left-wing progressive judge who doesn’t know anything about real estate, and again, they are trying to prevent Trump from running for office. They are trying to destroy his livelihood. They are trying to take everything he built up and take it away,” Terrell added.

“To try to discourage him from running for office, I find the conduct of the New York bar offensive. It is disgusting. What should happen is that the case should be appealed, and it will be appealed, and it should be reversed because that was not justice. It is political warfare,” he said.

Meanwhile, the judge overseeing Fulton County DA Fani Willis’ RICO case against Trump warned Willis could face a gag order.

The judge said Willis’ recent public comments criticizing detractors of her hiring of special counsel Nathan Wade, whom she had an improper relationship with, were legally improper and created risks, though did not yet cross the line into denying the defendants a fair trial.

“In these public and televised comments, the District Attorney complained that a Fulton County Commissioner ‘and so many others’ questioned her decision to hire SADA Wade. When referring to her detractors throughout the speech, she frequently utilized the plural ‘they,’” Judge McAfee wrote.

“The State argues the speech was not aimed at any of the Defendants in this case. Maybe so. But maybe not. Therein lies the danger of public comment by a prosecuting attorney,” his order stated. “By including a reference to ‘so many others’ on the heels of Defendant Roman’s motion which instigated the entire controversy, the District Attorney left that question open for the public to consider.

“The Court cannot find that this speech crossed the line to the point where the Defendants have been denied the opportunity for a fundamentally fair trial, or that it requires the District Attorney’s disqualification,” he stated.

“But it was still legally improper. Providing this type of public comment creates dangerous waters for the District Attorney to wade further into,” McAfee wrote.
