NY AG Sues Trump, Child For ‘Stunning’ Fraud

HISTORY: Former US President Donald Trump and his grown children were sued Wednesday … for what the New York state attorney general called a series of frauds … accusing the family of falsely stating the value of properties to get favorable loans and tax breaks. The move by Letitia James marks one of the biggest legal battles for the former president yet.”The pattern of fraud and deception used by Trump and the Trump Organization for their own financial benefit is astounding.” The former president’s sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, as well as his daughter Ivanka Trump are also named as defendants in the lawsuit. As well as the Trump Organization – a family company that manages hotels, golf courses and other properties around the country. At issue is how the company prepared Trump’s annual statements of financial condition during the decade ending in 2021. James says Trump has inflated his net worth by billions. “That’s the art of stealing.” During the contentious three-year investigation, James said her office uncovered more than 200 examples of misleading valuations on nearly two dozen properties. In one instance, she said the former president tried to make it look like his Trump Tower apartment was nearly triple the actual square footage. “Tripling the size of the apartment for the valuation was intentional and deliberate: fraud. Not an honest mistake.” James also said Trump valued his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida as high as $739 million by pretending it could be developed for residential use, when he knew there were restrictions. James said Mar-a-Lago should have been valued closer to $75 million. “No one is above the law.” James also wants Trump and his children to be permanently barred from running any companies in New York… and Trump and his organization to be banned from making real estate deals for five years. In a social media post, the former Republican president called the lawsuit “another witch ‘Hunt'” and launched a personal attack on James, who is a Democrat. Trump is considering running for president again in 2024. He is at the center of a series of investigations, including a court-authorized search of his Mar-a-Lago estate over the handling of records, and a Georgia investigation into attempts to overturn 2020 election results. He has also denied wrongdoing. This lawsuit was civil, meaning that it did not imply criminal guilt.Still, James says she will refer allegations of criminal wrongdoing to federal prosecutors and the Internal Revenue Service.
