Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) decried the civil lawsuit filed by New York State Attorney General Letitia James against the National Rifle Association (NRA).
“[I] mean, this lady – – the Attorney General in New York has been trying to shut the NRA down since she came into office. She is literally trying to weaponize her office to waste taxpayer money to go after a political vendetta that she has had against the NRA. And she’s made statements to that point long before there were any kind of allegations of wrongdoing. So here’s an example of a prosecutor looking to put somebody away before they even see a crime, and she just wants to shut down the NRA. That’s not what taxpayer dollars are supposed to be used for. It’s an abuse of her office.”
