[Writer’s disclosure: I am blocked on Twitter by Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump]
Twitter took Donald Trump, Jr., to school over just how the truth works when it comes to his family’s legal troubles.
As soon as it was announced that New York State Attorney General Tish James was now leading a criminal as well as a civil investigation into the Trump Organization, the family spin machine began working overtime, with Junior leading the way in the wrong way.
Junior shared his father’s statement, which brought out the old ‘witch hunt’ trope. “There is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that is in desperate search of a crime. But, make no mistake, that is exactly what is happening here,” Junior’s father said in the lengthy rant. He also accused Attorney General James of deliberately leaking information about the scope of her investigation to the media and ignoring “real issues” related to crime in New York City. Employing his usual gaslighting and projection tactics in an attempt to cast the investigation as tainted from its outset, he also claimed without proof that James “swore that she would ‘definitely sue’ me.”
Trump Legal Thread 1/
Today we learned New York state AG Attorney General has joined Manhattan DA District Attorney in making the financial investigation of Trump Org into a criminal case. This is very bad news for Trump, but past week has had bad developments in THREE cases.. pic.twitter.com/XG5Gmg4r56

The NY State attorney general’s office is working with the Manhattan district attorney’s office, whose probe into the Trump Organization has looked into whether the company misled lenders and insurance companies about the value of properties and whether it paid the appropriate taxes. James’ notification to the organization brings a new level of potential legal risk to the former President, with the attorney general now able to seek criminal penalties as part of the probe.
The gears inside the Trump spin machine are starting to break down from years of corrosion. Twitter immediately let Junior know how false he was yet again.

Your best bet is to flip on his ass before Ivanka flips on all of you.
