Dear Commons Community,
Donald Trump has complained that he is the victim of a witch hunt on the part of President Joe Biden’s administration and the U.S. Attorney General’s Office to distract him from running for president by subjecting him to “frivolous” lawsuits. Since the early 1980s through 2016, Trump or his company has been involved in over 4,000 lawsuits according to data collected by USA Today. That is an average of approximately 114 per year. These involve federal and state courts, including legal contests with casino patrons, million-dollar real estate lawsuits, personal defamation lawsuits, and over 100 business tax disputes. He was the plaintiff in 1,639 lawsuits alone involving his casino operations. Trump should be able to handle without any problem another four or five on the part of the Attorney General given all of the experience he has.
