New York Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday announced that her office has found “significant evidence” that “the Trump Organization used fraudulent and misleading asset valuations” to obtain economic benefits for years.
James added that her office has taken legal action to force the former president, and his children Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump, to comply with the investigation into the Trump Organization’s financial dealings.
New York’s attorney general said in court papers that Donald Trump’s family business repeatedly engaged in “fraudulent or misleading” practices.
