President Donald Trump renewed his claim that New York’s lawsuit alleging rampant financial abuses by his personal charitable organization is politically motivated, citing comments made on the campaign trail by the state’s new attorney general, Letitia James.

New York’s June lawsuit against the Donald J. Trump Foundation should be barred over comments made by James and predecessors Barbara Underwood and Eric Schneiderman, who were both vocal Trump critics, Trump’s attorney Alan Futerfas said in documents filed last week in state court in Manhattan.
