Report: New York Attorney General Seeks to Hold Trump in Contempt

Gage Skidmore Fickr

On Thursday, New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a motion with a state judge to hold former President Trump in civil contempt. In the filing, James argues that Trump failed to comply with a court order requiring him to hand over documents as part of an ongoing civil investigation by James’s office.

James also asked Judge Arthur Engoron to fine the former president $10,000 for each day he fails to produce the documents amid the ongoing probe of whether the Trump Organization unlawfully falsified the value of assets for financial gain.

The Daily Mail reports:

‘The judge’s order was crystal clear: Donald J. Trump must comply with our subpoena and turn over relevant documents to my office,’ James said in a statement.

‘Instead of obeying a court order, Mr. Trump is trying to evade it. We are seeking the court’s immediate intervention because no one is above the law.’

James subpoenaed Trump and two of his adult children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr., in January seeking a deposition from all three.

The trio sought to block the subpoena, claiming that James was motivated by ‘political animus’ as well as other grounds, but in February a judge quashed the effort and ordered the ex-president to ‘comply in full’ by not only testifying but also producing a tranche of documents New York prosecutors have asked for in the probe.

The ex-president was ordered to produce those documents by March 3 but was granted an extension to March 31 by James’ office.

Trump has already turned over THOUSANDS of documents to this little twit’s office. PLUS, it’s already been confirmed that the assets were WAY undervalued. On top of that, NO financial institution is going to loan money to anyone unless they do a due diligence to verify any asset value that is being used as collateral. Little Latitia is a crybaby and wants to make a name for herself.

That’s exactly right. The lending institution must be satisfied as to the value the collateral, period.

The biden’s modern day traitors, sucking up any thing they can get their greedy paws on, at any cost, not an ounce of loyalty for America, coming from the whole fxxxin family. Greed, corruption, and this family is in our White House.When will the impeachment hearings begin? time for return of ill gotten, time to pay the piper, meaning the U.S. Where is the money?, who got what ?, was all this reported to the IRS? What are the government departments doing about the corruption? Where is the DOJ, CIA, IRS, SS, have they all been corrupted by an old man? who sold his country down the drain? 2022 the worm will turn big time and those who committed crimes and lied to congress will held to the oath of office they took but did not honor.

They are all in this together. They would rather see our country flushed down the toilet and
keep all the demos and and Rinos working night and day to stop Trump!!! They think this
total mess we are in as a country can be fixed with the likes of Biden and support crew!!!
She should be disbarred and sent back to attorney school!! What’s found already is that
the properties were under valued…..but oh no she has to get it and try to spin it to get
points from the left. Sounds like she is part of the problem not the solution!!! Resign maybe…??????

You stupid headline grabbing zits have spent 6 years crawling President Trumps anus and haven’t found a dame thing that is even news worthy. You are all so jealous of this mans accomplishments you invent crap to stay in the news. He has been number one since 2016 and will be till this planet expires. The people that should be investigated were left to do what ever they wanted because they could buy a whole lot of pretty beads and wine. They are ignorant trolls and waist time and money.

NY AG can’t investigate cuomo for his kiss of death to our seniors or his sexual harassment. OR Hochuls self servicing for her family in building a stadium that hubby will benefit from OR that her son’s wife is a lobbyist in Albany for pharma company. But Govenor Patterson was impeached for accepting tickets to a game and he was almost blind???? Justice????
