RNC Chairwoman Mocked for Attacking ‘Latest SDNY Fishing Expedition’ Into Trump – Which Does Not Exist

 
 
 

'Never Seems to Know What She’s Talking About'

Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican Party (RNC) is getting mocked on social media for one of her seemingly relentless tweets supporting President Donald Trump. Daily, if not hourly, McDaniel acts as Trump's press agent, both praising and defending him.

Letitia James, the Attorney General of the State of New York, this week opened an investigation into the Trump Organization. She's subpoenaed two banks that work with Donald Trump, and is focusing on four major Trump projects, and his failed attempt to buy the Buffalo Bills football team.

It's not a "fishing expedition." It's a legitimate investigation.

McDaniel's ignorance is confirmed by Preet Bharara, the former head of the SDNY, also known as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York:
