New York attorney general Letitia James has said that if President Trump declares martial law it will be an “act of sedition” by a “loser.”
Media reports have alleged that President Trump and others had an argument during a meeting at the White House over whether to declare martial law to allow elections to be re-run in states with irregularities.
President Trump says the martial law debate is fake news
Speaking to Dean Obeidallah, New York attorney general Letitia James said that any discussion of martial law is tantamount to an act of “sedition” by the president.
“The will of the people has [sic] spoken, and that [sic] President Trump’s days are coming to an end, “said James. “And the reality is that this is an act of sedition. This President deals with illegality, and the fact that he would even consider martial law is a violation of our values and the Constitution. “
“The people have spoken,” James went on, “and he should accept the result of the election instead of trying to find fraud where none exist.”
She argued that Trump’s martial law discussion was “nothing more than a distraction” from the current coronavirus crisis.
James added, “This is nothing more than an attempt by President Trump to raise funds. It’s fundraising. That’s all that is. Fundraising. And that’s all he’s interested in. “
“He’s in the White House and he’s stewing on the fact that he’s a loser and he’s lost that election and unfortunately he’s having a hard time accepting it. He lost, ”she concluded.
However, President Trump has claimed that the martial law discussion never took place, calling it false news.

Noting the current challenge rising in Congress for Republican votes in the electoral college, James said that they “unfortunately confirm the conduct of this president who is closely involved in a seditious act”.
“We know that Congressmen will, in all likelihood, try again to circumvent the will of the people, undermine our democracy, and delay or delay the fact that Vice President Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be sworn in soon Jan. 20,” continued James gone.
Attorney General James is no stranger to either the President or the Trump family.
The attorney general is also currently targeting the Trump Organization in an investigation into tax write-offs allegedly conducted by the president in connection with the consulting fees paid by his daughter Ivanka, as well as a separate investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney.
“This is just the latest fishing expedition to harass the company,” said Alan Garten, attorney for the Trump Organization, in November. “Everything was carried out in strict compliance with applicable law and with the advice of lawyers and tax experts.”
“This is pure and simple harassment,” tweeted Ivanka Trump.
“This ‘investigation’ of the NYC Democrats is 100% politics, publicity, and anger motivated. They know very well that there is nothing here and that there was no tax break at all, ”she added.
