N.Y. AG Letitia James Surrounded by Corruption, Chief of Staff Resigns

‘... at least one woman accused Khan of inappropriate touching and unwanted kissing, leading James to hire a law firm to investigate the allegations...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Ibrahim Khan, the chief of staff to New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), resigned from his position after the beginning of the investigation into at least two sexual harassment claims against him were made, according to The Hill.

In its statement, the attorney general’s office said that an “independent, impartial investigation” was conducted, and Khan has since resigned.

“The Office of Attorney General has protocols in place to thoroughly investigate any allegation of misconduct,” a spokesperson reported. “The office takes these matters with the utmost seriousness, and this situation is no different.”

The American Komsomolskaya Pravda — also known as the New York Times — was the first publication that reported the investigation and Khan’s resignation.

In his statement to the Times, Khan said that he was planning to leave by Dec. 31.

“I’ve been slated to leave the office for the private sector at the end of this year,” he said. “This is unrelated to an investigation which, nevertheless, found no official workplace misconduct.”

A person who is familiar with the situation said that the allegations were made by people who were not current employees at the office at the time the allegations were made and that the incidents happened outside the office.

Two people who are also familiar with the situation told the Times that the allegations involved former employees.

According to The Hill, James immediately started the investigation after the allegations became known to the office.

“… at least one woman accused Khan of inappropriate touching and unwanted kissing, leading James to hire a law firm to investigate the allegations,” The Hill reported.

“One woman who filed a complaint was told on Friday that her allegation was substantiated.”

According to his LinkedIn profile, Khan served as chief of staff in the attorney general’s office since 2019. He was also her campaign manager when she ran for the office in 2018 and served as chief of staff to James while she was New York City’s public advocate from 2014 to 2018.

Khan, however, is not the only person in the office who should resign.

Aside from having the typical leftist positions, like being easy on criminals and attacking the Second Amendment by trying to shut down the National Rifle Association [NRA] and force the concealed carry gun law, James is also infamous for investigating and suing Donald Trump.
