(RoyalPatriot.com )- One of the lawyers representing Eric Trump in New York Attorney General Letitia James witch hunt civil suit against the Trump Organization has removed himself from the case.
On September 14, Marc Mukasey, a partner with Mukasey Frenchman LLP, informed a New York State Supreme Court judge in Manhattan that he was withdrawing from the case. This move came just one day after a judge’s order to seal a stipulation between the parties was filed.
Prior to that agreement, the court docket showed that there had been no activity on this case since January 2021.
What is unclear, however, if this judge’s order had any connection with Mukasey’s decision to depart.
Neither Marc Mukasey nor Eric Trump – or representatives from the Trump Organization – have replied to any inquiries into why Mukasey removed himself.
Mukasey, once a federal prosecutor and a former law partner of Rudy Giuliani, successfully represented former Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher who was found not guilty in the death of a 17-year-old ISIS captive. He also represented Halliburton and basketball coach Rick Petino.
Letitia James, who ran for New York Attorney General on the campaign promise to “get Trump,” has spent her time in office doing just that.
Echoing the Soviet Levrentiy Beria — “show me the man, and I’ll show you a crime” – James, even before her term began, announced that she would launch a sweeping investigation into the President, his family and “anyone” in his circle who may have violated the law.
In August 2020, James’ office announced that it was investigating allegations that the Trump Organization illegally inflated assets in order to attract investors and secure loans.
James’ investigation was prompted after convicted perjurer Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former attorney, accused Mr. Trump of lying about the value of his assets in order to get loans, lower insurance rates and tax breaks during his Congressional testimony.
No charges have been brought.
Eric Trump will continue to be represented in the civil case by criminal defense attorney Alan Futerfas.
