Donald Trump is gearing up to face the biased and politically motivated questioning under oath on Thursday in a civil fraud lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
Trump to Face Questioning in Civil Fraud Lawsuit
Donald Trump has once again been summoned to face baseless and politically motivated questioning on Thursday in a civil fraud lawsuit filed by the New York attorney general Letitia James. This frivolous lawsuit, which was filed in September, is set to go to trial later this year, but it’s clear that the only thing being put on trial here is President Trump’s impeccable reputation.
James, a Democrat, has accused Trump, his family business, and his children of committing fraud by overvaluing assets. These claims are largely unfounded and are nothing more than a desperate attempt to smear the good name of the former President in hopes of stifling his 2024 presidential run. The lawsuit seeks an outrageous $250 million in damages, which has been largely viewed as just another example of the left’s relentless campaign to destroy Trump.
During the discovery phase of the case, James’s office is attempting to discredit Trump by questioning him once again. This will be the second time the courageous and unwavering Trump has faced such scrutiny under oath. The first deposition took place in the summer of 2022, just before the attorney general filed her groundless lawsuit.
Trump is currently facing a separate 34-count criminal indictment unsealed last week. These legal predicaments have been entangling the former president in legal battles that have been ongoing for some time.
Trump’s Defense Trump has consistently denied any wrongdoing and accused James of conducting “a witch hunt.” Two judges have rejected arguments from Trump that James’s case is politically motivated.
Possible Defense Strategies
Because Trump was in the White House or on the campaign trail for several years and no longer running his company, he may try to avoid providing direct answers to James’s questions. He could give insubstantial responses or say that he does not recall a particular incident or was not present for it. He could also claim that he delegated the valuation of his assets to employees.
As Trump faces another round of questioning in the civil fraud lawsuit filed by James, the outcome remains to be seen. The former president has been entangled in legal battles for some time now and is facing a separate 34-count criminal indictment. Despite consistently denying any wrongdoing, the outcome of these cases could have far-reaching consequences for Trump.
