New York AG Letitia James Announces Lawsuit of Donald Trump and Family Members Over Fraud Claims

New York Attorney General Letitia James, who has been conducting a civil investigation of former President Donald Trump’s company, is announcing a major lawsuit of former President Donald Trump, three of his adult children and his company over widespread fraud claims.

James’ announcement comes nearly a week after The New York Times reported that she had rejected an offer from Trump’s lawyers to settle her probe of the Trump Organization, which is based in Manhattan.

James’ office was investigating the company for possibly fraudulently misstating the value of various real estate assets to receive financial benefits in the form of more favorable loan and insurance rates, and tax breaks.
