Trump just exposed his guilty conscience in furious attack on New York’s Attorney General

While Special Counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into Trump and his campaign — discovering no less than ten different occasions on which it appears the president attempted to obstruct justice — our MAGA-minded leader is not yet out of the woods. The Attorney General’s Office of New York is still probing for possible criminality on the part of Trump and his associates, and given his long history of shady businesses dealings and behavior, it seems likely they’ll uncover something.


The president himself seems to be concerned about just such an eventuality because today he took to Twitter and fired off several tweets dripping in insecurity and concern. He started off by targeting the entire state of New York, saying that it’s “very hard and expensive” to live there.

Trump then pivoted to what would appear to be nonsequitur if it weren’t obviously his reason for tweeting in the first place. Trump attacked NY’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, leveling an accusation that he uses his state’s Attorney General as a “bludgeoning tool for his own purposes.” He added that they “sue on everything” and are “always in search of a crime.”

As usual, Trump provided no evidence to back up his claim, but it is deeply hypocritical given that Trump’s own Attorney General William Barr is the one who obsequiously refused to bring charges against the president after the Mueller Report pointed to numerous possible crimes on his part.

In particular, Trump complained that his Trump Foundation was sued even though it “took Zero [sic] rent & expenses,” adding that it “gave away more money than it had.” Once again, he failed to back up his assertion with anything more than his own historically untrustworthy word.

The president also managed to bring his favorite bugaboo Hillary Clinton into this mix by complaining that it was former A.G. Eric Schneiderman brought the charges against his foundation originally. Trump claimed that Schneiderman, who eventually resigned in disgrace, served as the Campaign Chairman for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, which is a patently false statement. John Podesta was Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman. Schneiderman sat on Clinton’s “leadership council” which is a vastly different thing.

President Trump went on to complain that his companies are being “harassed” and that his children and companies are “spending a fortune on lawyers,” which makes it sound like the AG’s office is on the trail of some very serious crimes and the Trump family is pulling out the big guns to protect themselves.

Trump ended the tweetstorm but followed it up a bit later with a tweet whining that the Clinton Foundation should be the target, not him. All in all, today’s Twitter performance points to a guilty man worried about being found out for his crimes. If he really has done nothing wrong, he would be focused on running the country as the investigations wrap up. Instead, he’s lashing out at the men and women responsible for enforcing our laws.

This man is a disgrace to the presidency and regardless of what New York investigators find out, has made more than an enough of a case for his own impeachment already.
