New York AG Letitia James weaponized the justice system against Donald Trump.

The consequences of her witch hunt will go far beyond the former President.

And Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary gave New York AG Letitia James this brutal reality check.

O’Leary Ventures chairman Kevin O’Leary – one of the investors on ABC’s Shark Tank – slammed the $355 million judgment against former President Donald Trump in the business fraud case against him in New York.

The judgment was part of New York Democrat Attorney General Letitia James’ civil suit against him for allegedly defrauding banks and insurers by overstating the value of his real estate holdings.

O’Leary told host Blake Burman that the judgment would eventually be overturned on appeal during an appearance on The Hill on NewsNation.

The case will have far-reaching implications for the business community according to O’Leary because a “rogue Judge” twisted the law.

“If you’re going to put billions of dollars to work somewhere in the world, the most coveted place to do it is in the United States of America,” O’Leary said. “That is the brand of America. You don’t really want to mess with that.”

The Shark Tank star has already announced that he would no longer invest in New York – which he branded a “loser state” – after the Trump judgment.

“It’s a rogue Judge,” O’Leary added. “In my view, that’s a rogue settlement and should be repealed, and it will be through the appellate courts.”

Letitia James said she would seize Trump’s assets if he didn’t pay the penalty including the Trump building in Lower Manhattan.

The threat was a move pulled straight out of the playbook of a tyrant in a third-world country.

“Seizing assets happens in many countries where you wouldn’t want to put your money,” O’Leary said.

O’Leary has been an outspoken critic of the Trump ruling since it came down and has warned that it will scare investors out of New York.

“It was already on the top of the list of being a loser state. I would never invest in New York now,” O’Leary said in a Fox Business interview. “And I’m not the only person saying that.”

Anyone doing business in New York will have to worry that they could be targeted for political reasons if they get on the wrong side of Democrats.

Letitia James and Democrats are celebrating the ruling but the state will pay a heavy price for becoming a banana republic to get Trump.
