Trump Organization Fraud Case: Former President’s Lawyer Argues Against Trial’s Existence in New York Court

In a New York court, lawyers have presented their arguments in the civil fraud trial involving former President Donald Trump and two of his sons. The Trump Organization is accused of inflating the value of its properties to secure better loans. Trump has criticized New York’s Attorney General, Letitia James, calling her a “political hack” and claiming the case is politically motivated. During the trial’s closing arguments, Trump attempted to speak but was rebuked by the judge for not adhering to agreed-upon restrictions. The judge has to decide on the level of fines, with the state now seeking $370 million instead of the originally proposed $250 million, and is considering a permanent ban on Trump doing business in New York.
