NY AG to Trump, Ivanka, Don Jr…’Don’t Fuck with Us’

The A.G.’s office says it has “significant evidence” of fraud committed by the Trump Organization, and is taking legal action against the ex-president and his kids to make them comply with its investigation.

As prosecutors throughout the country investigate Donald Trump for all kinds of alleged wrongdoing, from attempting to overturn the 2020 election to years of financial chicanery, the ex-president has relied on his usual tactics: stonewall, deny, and lash out against the people attempting to hold him accountable.

Naturally, the New York attorney general’s investigation of the Trump Organization has been more of the same, except for the fact that his eldest children have gotten in on the stonewall, deny, lash out business too. Both Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. have refused to comply with subpoenas from Letitia James’s office, calling them “an unprecedented and unconstitutional maneuver.”

They’ve also accused the attorney general of attempting to obtain testimony that could then be used against them in a separate criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney. For his part, the former president asked a judge this month to stop James’s investigation into his family business, claiming in a motion that the prosecutor’s actions are “vindictive,” “self-serving,” and lacking in “prosecutorial ethics.”

Apparently not wanting to miss out on the fun, Eric Trump went on Fox News to declare that James’s investigation “violates the Constitution” and is “what you’d expect from Russia…what you’d expect from Venezuela.” Unfortunately for the Trump family, it does not appear that insulting an elected official and straight up refusing to comply with the law is going to work out for them this time around!

Late on Tuesday, the A.G.’s office filed an almost 160-page document accusing the Trump Organization of inflating the value of its properties to lure lenders, and deflating the value of those same properties when it came time to pay taxes.

Making it clear that her office is done with their shit, James wrote on Twitter: “We are taking legal action to force Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump to comply with our investigation into the Trump Organization’s financial dealings.

  1. There is no shortage of Law Professors giving their two cents to James. That to me, is what makes this different from any case in memory. We can only imagine the calls and letters of those wanting to assist and advise.
    The problem I see with this case,..is everyone knows cheating valuations is common practice. The what about him, and what about her is coming. Meanwhile, even as this goes on, a massive stadium issue in Buffalo is going on with the state, and huge conflicts of interest with the govs husband and representative Jacobs, because of ties to Delaware North.
    Football stadiums are a bad investment for tax payers. There are 8 games a year not counting playoffs, the number of people visiting the stadium is very very low compared to the population.

    • and btw, don’t forget it was Trump who helped Pegula win the bid to buy the Bills , by spreading false rumors of the team being taken out of NY. Meanwhile during this negotiation, Pegula has threatened precisely that. It is an extra layer to the Trump case,.
      Put it this way, if you were a white collar prosecutor in NYS, you will never have enough resources, and everything devolves into, doing what you can with what you have.
