Missouri AG to Sue New York for ‘Lawfare’ Against Donald Trump

The new hot term in politics is “lawfare.”

This is what Republicans are calling the cases against Donald Trump for using the law to wage war against the former president and Republican nominee for the 2024 ticket.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey announced this week that he will be filing suit against the state of New York for its “direct attack” on our democracy and Donald Trump.

In announcing his suit, Bailey stated, “I will be filing suit against the State of New York for their direct attack on our democratic process through unconstitutional lawfare against President Trump. It’s time to restore the rule of law.

“We have to fight back against a rogue prosecutor who is trying to take a presidential candidate off the campaign trail.

“It sabotages Missourians’ right to a free and fair election.”

Bailey has been leading the effort to determine whether Alvin Bragg’s office and the DOJ coordinated their efforts to prosecute Trump.

On that very subject, Bailey stated, “I am demanding the DOJ turn over communications relating to the illicit prosecutions of President Trump. This includes communications between the DOJ and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, New York AG Leticia James, and Fulton County DA Fani Willis.

“Thanks to evidence that has come to light, my office has reason to believe Biden’s corrupt Department of Justice is the headquarters of the illicit prosecutions against President Trump.”

Now, this suit has zero chance of success, but this is likely more about Bailey showing his loyalty to Trump and making a play to be the Attorney General if Trump gets elected.

I am really curious to see what direction Trump goes for this because there are quite a few people in the mix for this position that would do an exceptional job. Of all the Trump possible cabinet posts, this is the one that has me the least worried that someone exceptional will be put in place.

In addition to numerous current GOP attorneys general, I think Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) could be on that list as well, but I am not sure he would want to risk leaving his seat for a four-year post.
