If there’s anything that should have been learned from the fallout over the Mueller report, it’s that investigations of your political opponents are a terrible idea. But New York State’s notoriously corrupt Democrats can’t stop.
Even while Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Cuomo continue to be enmeshed in scandals, political investigations continue to target President Trump.
And now the NRA.
The New York attorney general has launched an investigation into the National Rifle Association in the wake of recent reports on the group’s finances.
The office of Attorney General Letitia James has issued document preservation notices to the NRA and some affiliated entities as part of the investigation, a source confirmed.
The NRA appears to have its internal problems. But an “investigation” of the Republican-leaning gun rights group by an anti-gun Democrat in New York is another obvious case of New York Democrats inappropriately launching partisan investigations of political opponents.
The weaponization of the justice system as a tool for going after your political opponents is a common feature of totalitarian states.
It has no place in America.
