New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit to dissolve the National Rifle Association (NRA), charging the organization with, “illegal conduct because of their diversion of millions of dollars away from the charitable mission of the organization for personal use by senior leadership.”
James doesn’t just want a change in leadership; she wants to shut down the entire nearly 150-year-old organization:
“The NRA’s influence has been so powerful that the organization went unchecked for decades, while top executives funneled millions into their own pockets. The NRA is fraught with fraud and abuse, which is why, today, we seek to dissolve the NRA, because no organization is above the law.”

GMA is reporting that the New York AG claims there has been a misuse of funds at the NRA with four top executives using “millions upon millions from NRA reserves for personal use, including trips for them and their families to the Bahamas, private jets, expensive meals, and other private travel.”
This is the same AG who has promised to go after President Trump (see below) and is doing so right now. The NRA has been a big supporter of President Trump and the Republican Party in the past.
NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre (pictured below) and three other executives have been targeted for “misuse of funds” at the NRA.
The investigation of the NRA has been a 17-month look into the financial and non-profit organization.
The New York AG had promised to be a “pain in the a**” to President Trump when she was elected in 2018:
The New York State Attorney General has been openly bashing President Trump since she campaigned for election. In fact, she claimed that she planned on suing Trump if elected and said he would know her name. She’s made no secret that she’s out to get our president no matter what.
Just listen to the language coming from the woman in the video. Now imagine if a conservative would’ve said this when Obama was President. The woman with the potty mouth is the newly elected Attorney General of New York!
“…definitely going to sue Trump and be a pain in the a** for Trump!”
The profanity is one thing but the woman is on camera saying she’s going after President Trump. Will she try and be fair at all to the president or just be a “pain in the a** for Trump”? This woman is beyond unprofessional…No class.
First listen to this profanity language
Now imagine a conservative would've said this and Obama is President

The New York Times claims she ran on destroying President Trump so it’s no secret that she’ll pull out all the stops now that she’s in a position of power:
Letitia James was overwhelmingly elected as the attorney general of New York on Tuesday, shattering a trio of racial and gender barriers and placing herself in position to be at the forefront of the country’s legal bulwark against the policies of President Trump.
With her victory over Republican nominee Keith H. Wofford, Ms. James, 60, the public advocate for New York City, becomes the first woman in New York to be elected as attorney general, the first African-American woman to be elected to statewide office and the first black person to serve as attorney general.
Ms. Underwood already has dozens of cases pending against Mr. Trump, including an investigation into his charity and lawsuits to stop immigrant families from being separated at the border and to block the rollback of net neutrality and environmental regulations.
Because the courts and now this bulldog of a woman are all trying to destroy our president, we need a replacement for Sessions who is strong and will push back on this effort to stop President Trump’s agenda. Hopefully, Whittaker will be able to jump in and stop this woman.
President Trump just came back at her in a series of tweets:
The Trump Foundation has done great work and given away lots of money, both mine and others, to great charities over the years – with me taking NO fees, rent, salaries etc. Now, as usual, I am getting slammed by Cuomo and the Dems in a long running civil lawsuit started by…..

THE ENTIRE SERIES OF TWEETS:
The Trump Foundation has done great work and given away lots of money, both mine and others, to great charities over the years – with me taking NO fees, rent, salaries etc. Now, as usual, I am getting slammed by Cuomo and the Dems in a long-running civil lawsuit started by sleazebag AG Eric Schneiderman, who has since resigned over horrific women abuse, when I wanted to close the Foundation so as not to be in conflict with politics.
Shady Eric was head of New Yorkers for Clinton and refused to even look at the corrupt Clinton Foundation. In any event, it goes on and on & the new AG, who is now being replaced by yet another AG (who openly campaigned on a GET TRUMP agenda), does little else but rant, rave & politic against me. Will never be treated fairly by these people – a total double standard of “justice.”
