Trumps drukke processchema

By Duncan Mil

October 2, 2023 - Former President Donald Trump, three of his children and the Trump Organization stand accused of fraud, falsification of business records, issuing false financial statements and conspiracy.

In the first of seven civil and criminal cases, Trump faces accusations of inflating assets by $1.9 billion to $3.6 billion annually between 2011 and 2021 to save hundreds of millions on loans and insurance.

The case brought by Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James is seeking at least $250 million in penalties, a ban against Trump and his sons Donald Jr. and Eric from running businesses in New York, and a five-year commercial real estate ban against Trump and the Trump Organization.

Justice Arthur Engoron, the judge in the case, ruled on September 26 that James had proven Trump and his co-defendants fraudulently inflated his assets. Engoron, in his ruling ordered the cancellation of certificates that 10 of Trump’s business entities need to operate some of his marquee properties -- including Trump Tower and his golf clubs in New York -- and said he would appoint independent receivers to oversee their “dissolution.”

Trump responded in a post on his Truth Social platform the day of the ruling, calling accusations that he committed fraud “ridiculous and untrue,” and hit back, calling Engoron a “DERANGED” judge.
