BATAVIA, N.Y. (AP) — A Christian pastor in western New York said he felt intimidated and harassed after the state’s attorney general, a Democrat, sent a letter saying she believed a planned far-right political event at his church this week could lead to racial violence.
In the letter sent on Aug. 3, Attorney General Letitia James warned organizers of the ReAwaken America Tour event that her office could take legal action if “extremist” rhetoric by speakers spurred violent or unlawful conduct.
The two-day event at the Cornerstone Church in Batavia, midway between Buffalo and Rochester, is scheduled to feature President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and others. James’ letter was addressed to Flynn and event organizer Clay Clark but sent to them through the church.
