New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced civil lawsuits against Donald Trump and several of his children on Wednesday after investigating the tax practices of his group, the Trump Organization.
“We are taking legal action against Donald Trump for violating the law (…) in order to generate profits for himself, his family and his business”, declared the prosecutor, a month after the hearing of the former Republican President through his services in New York.
She said she is seeking $250 million in reparations on behalf of New York State, as well as corporate bans for Donald Trump and his children Donald Trump Jr, Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.
The spokesperson for the former American president immediately reacted by saying that he was the subject of “political” prosecution. “The Democrats are suing their political opponents! “, accused Liz Harrington, on the Truth Social network.
Fraudulent asset valuations
The civil investigation against the family group Trump Organization had been opened after the explosive testimony in Congress in Washington by one of Donald Trump’s former personal lawyers, Michael Cohen, alleging fraudulent assessments, up or down , assets within the Trump Organization, to obtain loans, obtain tax reductions or better insurance compensation.
These lawsuits are in addition to several investigations already underway around Donald Trump, including one on his presidential archives which led to a spectacular search by the FBI on August 8 at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.
