New York Attorney General Letitia James has clearly decided that she wants to be a thorn in Donald Trump’s side.
Not only is she stacking up cases against him, but now she is also harassing a church that hosted a Trump event.
This is borderline harassment and a clear abuse of power.
The ReAwaken America Tour
Before the event, James sent a letter to the Cornerstone Church in Batavia, NY, warning them that she believed the event was more or less a hate event.
She wrote, “As New York’s top law enforcement officer, I have significant concerns that the ReAwaken America Tour’s upcoming event at the Cornerstone Church in Batavia, New York on August 12 and 13 could spur extremist or racially motivated violence.”
She cited the day of the event, noting that it coincides with “the five-year anniversary of the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.”
So, now I guess we need to start striking days off the calendar based on every negative event that ever took place in this country.
The note continued, “The Office of the Attorney General writes to remind you that New York law prohibits racially motivated violence, harassment, or interference with another person in the exercise of their civil rights.
“New York Civil Rights Law §79-n empowers the Office of the Attorney General to investigate acts of violence, intimidation, threats, or harassment directed at people based on a belief or perception regarding an individual’s race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, religious practice, age, disability, or sexual orientation. In addition to actual damages, any person who violates this statute can be held liable for $5,000 in penalties for each violation.”
The letter continued on similarly, which the church considered a blatant threat.
Here is an outtake from the event…
Pastor Paul Doyle of Cornerstone Church stated, “I understand there are extremist groups out there, but if you’re going to call us an extremists group I’d like to see some validity for that … and it’s intimidation right from our government.
“There’s nothing racist about this event.
“In fact, there will be, there’s a number of African American speakers as well as Jewish speakers at this event.”
Local police even conceded they did not expect any violence from the event, and there was not.
She is really treading on thin ice here and better be careful because she is starting to make it quite easy to make a harassment case.
