Donald Trump Answers Questions For 7 Hours In Legal Battle With NY AG
The witch hunts into Donald Trump keep coming.
Trump had to answer questions for 7 hours in the case brought against him by New York’s attorney general Letitia James.
Former President Donald Trump answered questions for nearly seven hours Thursday during his second deposition in a legal battle with New York’s attorney general over his company’s business practices, reversing an earlier decision to invoke his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination and remain silent.
The Republican met all day with lawyers for Attorney General Letitia James, who sued Trump last year. Her lawsuit claims Trump and his family misled banks and business associates by giving them false information about his net worth and the value of assets such as hotels and golf courses.
Shortly after Trump entered the Manhattan skyscraper that houses James’ offices, his attorney, Alina Habba, said he was “not only willing but also eager to testify.”
After the deposition was finished, a lawyer for Trump’s businesses, Christopher Kise, said the former president had spent nearly seven hours “describing in detail his extraordinary business success.”
“The transactions at the center of this case were wildly profitable for the banks and for the Trump entities,” Kise said. “When the facts of this success, and not politically engineered soundbites, are out in the open, everyone will scoff at the notion any fraud took place.”
She wants to stop Donald Trump’s companies from doing business in New York and bar him and his kids from holding an officer position in the company.
She also wants a hefty financial penalty for Trump.
In addition to the hefty financial penalty, James wants to bar Trump’s companies from doing business in New York. She also wants to permanently stop Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump from serving as an officer of a company in the state.
Democrats are doing everything they can to stop Trump 2024!
