New York State Attorney General Letitia James is arguably one of the most active attorney generals in New York history. She has actively sought information on President Trump’s finances, protected rights of immigrants against attempts from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) to deport them, and pushed for affordable housing throughout New York City. Ms. James is currently on the hunt for the Sackler family’s hidden opioid fortune pursuant to Purdue Pharma and suing other opioid manufacturers like Mallinckrodt, Teva, and Endo for fueling the opioid crisis.
Torian Mitchell attended Trump And The GE Parses The Opioid Crisis, where he pointed out that the (1) opioid crisis could be symptomatic that governments are against the people anad people are fighting back and (2) anarchy is already here:
Mitchell: It’s happening as we speak in places like Cameroon, Togo, South Africa, Haiti, Bolivia, Chile, Hong Kong where people are fighting back. When we look at actual revolutions I look at Haiti because Haitians are the original revolutionaries … for over a year and they’ve gotten very little coverage in the U.S., that nonstop – almost the entire population in Haiti – has been fighting against the government because this government that’s currently in power is not for the people.
At some point it can’t be everybody’s wrong and these 12 people are right. It can’t be … we all can’t be equally idiots and just don’t see … it will take that type of catalyst (anarchy) before we see some change because otherwise we’re just a group of guys chatting.
Ms. James must have heard Mitchell loud in clear. She recently appeared on New York One’s In Focus with Cheryl Wills. Apparently, Mitchell’s comments got Ms. James’ dander up and she used the platform to clap back.
