Red State AG Slaps New York With Lawsuit Over Trump Trial: ‘Unconstitutional Lawfare’


Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey Announced Friday that his state will be filing a lawsuit against New York over Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s politically motivated “hush money” case against former President Donald Trump.

“I will be filing suit against the State of New York for their direct attack on our democratic process through unconstitutional lawfare against President Trump,” Bailey wrote in an X post. “It’s time to restore the rule of law.”

“We have to fight back against a rogue prosecutor who is trying to take a presidential candidate off the campaign trail. It sabotages Missourians’ right to a free and fair election,” the post continued.

In a statement to Fox News, Bailey reiterated that the New York case — which resulted in Trump’s conviction on 34 counts of falsifying business records — was designed to interfere in the 2024 election. “Radical progressives in New York are trying to rig the 2024 election. We have to stand up and fight back,” Bailey told Fox News.

“The investigations and subsequent prosecutions of former President Donald J. Trump appear to have been conducted in coordination with the United States Department of Justice,” he added.

Since the case will involve one state suing another, it will head directly to the Supreme Court, Bailey explained.

The Missouri attorney general previously summarized his views on the Trump trial in a statement to the House Judiciary Committee last week. “The people of the state of Missouri, whom I am tasked with protecting, watched in horror recently as the left’s direct assault on President Trump manifested itself in the form of a politically motivated, legally specious, and corrupt prosecution of the President, which resulted in an errant criminal conviction,” he wrote in his prepared remarks to the panel.

Bailey went on to say that “the left has prioritized its hatred of President Trump above the rule of law. To put it plainly, the left hates President Trump more than they love this country.”

Trump is set to be sentenced on July 11, just days before he is set to be nominated at the Republican National Convention.
