As Twitchy reported, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin went on a Twitter bender earlier Wednesday when news broke that New York State Attorney General Letitia James was filing a lawsuit against Donald Trump for “engaging in years of financial fraud.” Of note: It’s not a criminal lawsuit, but a civil lawsuit. As long as James has been investigating Trump, she doesn’t have the goods on him to file a criminal lawsuit.

Lawyer and Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter has laid out in a short thread just how the lawsuit is going to go. In short, Rubin might want to calm down.

Rubin, who’s never right about anything, tweeted that “the suit points a dagger at the entire Trump operation, putting at risk the thing he holds most dear: his wealth” — although James’ suit seeks $250 million in civil penalties. As Schlichter says, there might be “small, piddling settlement” that’s hardly going to break Trump.
