New York Attorney General Letitia James has announced she is suing former President Trump and his children for alleged involvement in “numerous cases of fraud” involving past financial statements.

James and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office are embroiled in a three-year investigation into whether Trump has lowered real estate values ​​on his tax forms but increased paperwork for lenders.

The Democrat AG claims that Trump has used “highly inflated, grossly exaggerated and objectively false” figures in documents prepared by his accountants and executives.

“Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization have repeatedly and persistently manipulated asset values ​​to get banks to lend money to the Trump Organization on more favorable terms than would otherwise have been available to the company,” James said.

This enabled them to “pay lower taxes, meet revolving loan agreements, and encourage insurance companies to offer insurance at higher limits and at lower premiums.”

Trump lawyer fires back over ‘undeserved claims’ from Letitia James

The total amount of the ‘fraud’ alleged by Letitia James is $250 million as she accused Trump, his children and his business associates of performing the ‘art of stealing’.

Trump’s attorney Alina Habba fired back, calling the claims “undeserved,” while suggesting that James is more motivated by her “political agenda.”

“Today’s filing is not focused on the facts or the law,” Habba said in a statement, “rather it is solely focused on advancing the Attorney General’s political agenda.”

James promised to be a real pain in the ass

You almost have to chuckle at the fact that Letitia James, with the resources of one of the most powerful Attorney Generals in the country, conducted a three-year investigation into the case and could only get out of it with a civil lawsuit.

She spent three years chasing Trump and his children and all James got was a lawsuit that barely exceeded the parameters of a People’s Court case.

James indicated that the never-ending desire to catch Trump will continue, saying she believes state and criminal laws may have been violated in this case and referred her findings to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. and the IRS.

As for that “political agenda” – James literally made it clear that she intended to eat, sleep and dream about Trump as soon as she was elected to AG’s office.

“Oh, we’re definitely going to charge him,” she said, trying to motivate voters. “We are going to be a real pain in the ass. He will know my name personally.”

Former President Trump has criticized James in the past for engaging in what he calls a “witch hunt” and suggesting she is a “racist.”

The Trump Organization issued a statement about the investigation in December.

“The New York AG’s sole focus is to investigate Trump, all for her own political ambitions. … This political persecution is illegal, unethical and a mockery of our great state and justice system,” they wrote.

In April, Trump mocked James’ failed campaign for New York governor by wishing her a “happy” Easter.

“Happy Easter to failed governor candidate and racist Attorney General Letitia James,” he wrote.

“May she remain sane despite the fact that she will continue to drive business out of New York while keeping crime, death and destruction in New York!”

In a statement released minutes ago on his Truth Social media platform, the former president suggested he couldn’t believe James was going ahead with the case.

“I never thought this case would be brought up — until I saw her really bad poll numbers,” Trump said.

“She is a con man who campaigned on a ‘get Trump’ platform, despite the city being one of the world’s crime and murder disasters under her control!”

The trial comes just 49 days after Election Day.
