New York AG Letitia James Sues Trump, His Company and His Family for Fraud

New York Attorney General Letitia James, who has been doing a civil investigation of former President Donald Trump’s company, is announcing a major fraud lawsuit against Trump, three of his adult children and his company.

James’s declaration comes after it was revealed by The New York Times about a week ago that she had turned down an offer from Trump’s attorneys to settle her investigation into the Trump Organization, which has its headquarters in Manhattan.

James’s office looked into whether the company had lied about the value of some of its real estate assets to get better loans, insurance rates, tax breaks and other financial benefits.

This came after a three-year investigation into the finances of the family business.

Trump has frequently denied any wrongdoing and accused James, a Democrat of being driven by politics to probe the previous Republican president. This accusation was made in response to James’ investigation of the former president.

In August Trump testified before James’s legal team during a deposition. He used his right against self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment more than 440 times to avoid answering questions under oath.

Donald Trump Jr. runs the Trump Organization with his brother Eric and both he and their sister Ivanka Trump talked to investigators under oath in August. Ivanka Trump served in a leadership role at the Trump Organization in the past.
