Going to be a busy week for the Trump family, RNC convention, responding to a lawsuit...


New York state’s attorney general has filed a new lawsuit against U.S. President Donald Trump’s company and several other defendants, according to court records.

The complaint against the Trump Organization and the other defendants was filed with a New York state court in Manhattan, the court records show.

A copy of the complaint was not immediately available, and its subject matter could not immediately be determined. A letter filed with the court indicates that Eric Trump, one of the president’s sons, is among the defendants.

I wonder if he will be able to deny reality when sitting in jail?

Look at the people around him and this is what the R's support. Sad.

He's still complaining about obama spying on him.

I wonder if this is a result of getting his tax records.

There is a real estate attorney and a law firmed named


Yep... Seven Springs is a Trump property in NY


New York’s Democratic attorney general asked a court Monday to enforce subpoenas into an investigation into whether President Donald Trump and his businesses inflated assets on financial statements.

Attorney General Letitia James filed a petition in state trial court in New York City naming the Trump Organization, an umbrella group for the Republican president's holdings, as a respondent along with other business entities. The filing also named Eric Trump and Seven Springs, a New York estate owned by the Trump family.

The attorney general's office is investigating whether the Trump Organization and the president improperly inflated the value of assets to secure loans and obtain economic and tax benefits. Investigators are looking into whether the Trump Organization and its agents improperly inflated the value of the Seven Springs north of the city.

Sherri Dillon is Trump's "long-time personal tax attorney"

She appears to have been influenced by the Trump practice of lying one day and then saying the opposite on a following day

from Feb 2019
Two Additional Trump Lawyers Accused of Lying to Federal Investigators About Hush Money Payments

Two lawyers working for President Donald Trump may have lied to government ethics officials about the Michael Cohen-facilitated hush money payment to adult actress Stormy Daniels, according to records obtained by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

In a Friday letter addressed to White House counsel Pat Cipollone, Oversight Committee Chair Elijiah Cummings (D-Md.) said those documents showed that Trump’s personal lawyer Sheri Dillon and former deputy White House ethics counsel Stefan Passantino provided “false information” to the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) about whether Trump reimbursed Cohen for the Daniels payment.

Cummings notes that Dillon “repeatedly stated to federal officials at OGE that President Trump never owed any money to Mr. Cohen in 2016 and 2017.” Cummings then details three separate incidents–in March and April 2018–where Dillon told OGE investigators that Trump did not pay Cohen back any money over the hush money arrangement. Pressed on the issue, Dillon repeatedly confirmed the lack of reimbursement on each occasion.

That apparently wasn’t true.

The letter continues:

On May 2, 2018, President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, made a startling admission when he stated on national television that President Trump had, in fact, reimbursed Mr. Cohen for his payments to [Stormy Daniels].

Dillon’s story js said to have changed immediately after that.

“On May 8, 2018, OGE officials asked Ms. Dillon about these new admissions and the new retainer claim,” the letter notes. “At that point, Ms. Dillon abandoned her previous argument that President Trump never made any payments to Mr. Cohen. Instead, she told OGE officials: ‘Mr Cohen always knew that he would be reimbursed but the mechanisms for reimbursement changed over time.'”

Attorney General James Takes Action to Force Trump Organization to Comply with Ongoing Investigation Into Financial Dealings | New York State Attorney General

“Nothing will stop us from following the facts and the law, wherever they may lead. For months, the Trump Organization has made baseless claims in an effort to shield evidence from a lawful investigation into its financial dealings,” said Attorney General James. “They have stalled, withheld documents, and instructed witnesses, including Eric Trump, to refuse to answer questions under oath. That’s why we've filed a motion to compel the Trump Organization to comply with our office’s lawful subpoenas for documents and testimony. These questions will be answered and the truth will be uncovered, because no one is above the law.”

The entire Trump family is comprised of a bunch of thugs and criminals. I look forward to Biden's victory this November so we can put this sad chapter in American history behind us.

Let's face it. If this many people had gone to prison around Obama, Republicans would have been asking for a totally nonracist lynching.

The best they had after 8 years was the IRS "scandal" which targeted organizations whose interest was... to pay fewer taxes. 12 years after Obama first assumed office, no fewer than 12 Trump associates have been investigated. Some never Trumpers aren't shocked by any of this but the silence from GOP circles is deafening. It is almost like Republicans are busier purging their own and don't have the time for Democrats.

Democrat ads needs to exploit GOP silence as these cases develop in courts. Push every topic of the case into public daily discussion. That was the tactic that allowed Trump success over Hillary.
