Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James over the weekend as she prepares to begin seizing assets belonging to former President Donald Trump if he can’t pay a nearly half-a-billion dollar bond as he appeals the ruling of his civil fraud case.

“Obviously, I believe in the rule of law. And, obviously, I believe that you have got to follow that where it leads,” Roy told CNN’s Jake Tapper during a Sunday interview on “State of the Union.”

“However, here’s the problem. This lawfare, if you want to use that framing and phraseology, this targeting of the former president, whether you’re talking about impeachment, which was done, whether you’re talking about all of these cases, there’s multiple cases, all of that is having an inverse effect, right?” he said. “The average hardworking American is out there are saying, what are you doing? All of this politics is going on.”

“Look, when you play these lawfare games, then you’re going to win stupid prizes,” he continued. “And the fact is, right now, the former president is gaining in popularity against a feeble current president destroying our country, attacking Israel, undermining our country with open borders.”


“And President Trump is actually gaining popularity because they’re just focusing on trying to go after him. I think we’re seeing the product of that in real-time. And what we need to right now is to focus on the issues the American people care about, secure the border, stop spending money we don’t have.”
