Former President Donald Trump complained to Sean Hannity that he’s being “attacked” so close to an election he isn’t even running in.

Thursday’s Hannity aired part two of the host’s interview with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

On Wednesday, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced the state filed a civil suit against the Trump Organization that alleges the company overvalued assets to obtain low-interest loans from financial institutions.

The suit seeks $250 million, as well as the banning of Trump and his adult children at the company from operating businesses in the state.

“Donald Trump falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system, thereby cheating all of us,” James said at a press conference.

Trump called the lawsuit an attack by New York Democrats before claiming there’s a tradition of not bringing legal action against politicians so close to an election. Of course, Trump is not running this year.

“And there’s a rule,” Trump said. “It’s an unwritten law. You never do this politically. You won’t see Hunter Biden attacked during this period. Sixty to 90 days out before an election. Nobody gets attacked. They attacked me. The good news is, I just heard my poll numbers went up.”

The “unwritten” rule Trump may be referring to is a 2020 memo issued by then-Attorney General Bill Barr. In it, Barr wrote:

No investigation (including any preliminary investigation)’ may be opened or initiated by the Department or any of its law enforcement agencies: 1. Of a Declared candidate for president or vice president, a presidential campaign. or a senior presidential campaign staff member or advisor’ absent prior (i) written notification to and consultation with the Assistant Attorney(s) General and U.S. Attorney(s) with jurisdiction over the matter and (ii) written approval of the Attorney General, through the Deputy Attorney General.

The policy, which the New York attorney general is not bound by, also extends to declared candidates for Congress. Moreover, even if she were bound by it, Trump is not a declared candidate for any office for which there’s an election in November.

Attorney General Merrick Garland extended said policy in July.

Trumps refusal to listen to his lawyers is coming home to roost: legal expert

Appearing on MSNBC's "The Katie Phang Show," former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade claimed that Donald Trump's actions following the search at his Mar-a-Lago resort that led to the discovery of boxes of stolen documents have made it difficult for the DOJ to not file charges against him.

Speaking with the host, McQuade stated that the search of Mar-a-Lago likely would have gone unnoticed if Trump hadn't taken to social media to announce it and that has put the DOJ on the spot to follow up with criminal indictments.

Adding to that, she suggested he is not listening to his lawyers.

With host Phang stating it was "put up or shut up time" for Trump to make a solid case for keeping the documents, McQuade said it may be too late.

"So often Donald Trump's defense is to win the court of public opinion, to win the news day; he's thinking about today," she explained. "He's not really thinking about tomorrow and most lawyers will tell their clients not to say anything. because whatever you say can be used against you. So I think we're seeing some of that come home to roost here."
