Is New York learning from Ghanaians?

For many years I have thought political witch hunting was only a practice in Ghana and Africa. But with what is currently going on in the United States of America, political witch hunting is global issue.

What's political witch hunting?

Political witch hunting occurs when a ruling polical part runs after some past political party members of the the past government. The purpose for political witch hunting is to investigate assume corrupt practices by some polical appointees. It is assumed that they took advantage of the fact that their party was in power.

The case of Donald Trump

Donald Trump is the immediate past president of the United States of America. He left office in 2021 as the leader on the ticket of the republicans.

Donald Trump is an entrepreneur with a lot of businesses. On Tuesday 18/05/21, the Attorney General of New York opened an investigation into Trump organisation. This criminal investigation is to ascertain whether the Trump organisation gave wrong report on their financial value to win loans and to avoid tax.

This criminal investigation has led many question why this investigation? People have been asking why the investigation was not carried out when Trump was in office?

The conclusion people are making from this investigation is that it is political witch hunting. And it is aimed at tarnishing the reputation of Donald Trump and the Republican Party. What's your concern on this case?
