NEW YORK (AP) - President Donald Trump has accused New York's Democratic governor and attorney general of going after him in a "political Witch Hunt."

In several tweets Monday, Trump accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Letitia James of "harassing all of my New York businesses in search of anything at all they can find to make me look as bad as possible."


He said Cuomo "uses his Attorney General as a bludgeoning tool."
James is suing the Trump Foundation, saying it was improperly involved in the president's political campaign and private business affairs. She is also investigating whether Trump gave misleading information to banks.
James responded on Twitter that "no one is above the law."
Cuomo told reporters Trump is letting "his paranoia" get the better of him.
