For the far-Left, if something has anything to do with President Trump, it’s got to be evil, right? I mean, that’s what they keep telling us, and they wouldn’t lie. Right?

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan filed a lawsuit against Chicago’s Trump Tower on Monday for “allegedly jeopardizing populations of fish in the Chicago River,” according to CBS 2 - Chicago.

CBS 2 reported:

Madigan filed a lawsuit against Trump International Hotel and Tower Monday for environmental violations, including putting aquatic life in the river in danger.

Madigan’s lawsuit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court, alleges Trump Tower takes in and releases millions of gallons of water per day without having conducted federally-mandated studies of the impact on the river’s fish and without the required permits.

There it is. The use of the term “without the required permits” indicates that Madigan isn’t so much concerned about the fish. She just wants the state to get their financial cut, if the report that Trump Tower doesn’t have permits to use water from the Chicago River is actually true.

“Trump Tower continues to take millions of gallons of water from the Chicago River every day without a permit and without any regard to how it may be impacting the river’s ecosystem,” Madigan said. “I filed my lawsuit to make sure Trump Tower cannot continue violating the law.”

Spokeswoman for the Trump Organization Janet Isabelli wasn’t fooled by Madigan’s excuse that Trump Tower was harming the Chicago River’s ecosystem.

"We are disappointed that the Illinois Attorney General would choose to file this suit considering such items are generally handled at the administrative level,” Isabelli said in the statement. “One can only conclude that this decision was motivated by politics.”

Ya don’t say?!
