NY AG Letitia James to make 'major national announcement'

Fox News is told the announcement will involve a probe of the NRA

New York Attorney General Letitia James said she will drop big news at an event Thursday morning.

James, in an email that was shared online by a CBS reporter, said Wednesday night that she will "make a major national announcement" without going into further detail. It will be held at the New York attorney general's office in Manhattan. The event will be streamed live online.

Fox News is told that it will be regarding a probe of the National Rifle Association (NRA), despite the fact some previously speculated that it would involve President Trump. James is one of the many Democratic state attorneys general with a history of being highly litigious against the Trump administration
