New York Attorney General Letitia James on Thursday asked a judge to hold former president Trump in contempt of court for refusing to turn over requested documents related to her latest witch hunt.
Letitia James also asked the judge to fine Trump $10,000 for every day that he refuses to comply with her order to turn over requested documents, CNBC reported.
AG James is investigating whether the Trump Organization inflated values of some of its properties.
“The judge’s order was crystal clear: Donald J. Trump must comply with our subpoena and turn over relevant documents to my office,” Letitia James said in a statement.
“Instead of obeying a court order, Mr. Trump is trying to evade it. We are seeking the court’s immediate intervention because no one is above the law.”
Donald Trump should be fined $10,000 per day for every day that he continues to violate the court’s order to provide these documents to my office.
No one is above the law.

New York Attorney General Letitia James asked a judge Thursday to hold former President Donald Trump in contempt of court for refusing to comply with a judge’s order to turn over documents for her investigation of his company.
James also asked Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron to fine Trump $10,000 for every day he fails to surrender those documents.
The attorney general also says in a court filing that Trump is in violation of Engoron’s order to give the state’s investigators the documents by March 31 pursuant to a subpoena, a deadline that had previously been extended from March 3.
James is investigating allegations that the Trump Organization manipulated the stated values of various real estate assets to get better financial terms when applying for loans and insurance, and for tax purposes.
Letitia James has been harassing Trump and his family…just as she promised.
In November 2018 after her election, Letitia James immediately began cursing and threatening President Donald Trump.
