New York Attorney General Letitia James announced a lawsuit against Trump for “violating the law as part of his efforts to generate profits.” In a more than 200 page lawsuit, the Attorney General said that Trump, his family, and his company committed more than 200 criminal acts by falsifying asset evaluations to inflate their wealth. The lawsuit also names three of Donald Trump's children: Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump. Attorney General James is seeking to permanently bar the Trump family from conducting business in New York and $250 million in penalties.

JAMES: “Following a comprehensive three-year investigation by my office, including witnesses, interviews with more than 65 witnesses and review of millions of documents that were submitted by Mr. Trump, and others, I am announcing that today, we are filing a lawsuit against Donald Trump for violating the law as part of his efforts to generate profits for himself, his family and his company. The complaint demonstrates that Donald Trump, falsely inflated, his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system, thereby cheating, all of us.”
