New York Judge Holds Trump in Contempt

New York Supreme Court judge Arthur Engoron held Trump in civil contempt and ordered him to pay $10,000 per day in fines until he complies with a subpoena from New York Attorney General Letitia James.

James is investigating the Trump Organization’s alleged mischaracterization of its real estate properties in order to obtain favorable loans and tax deductions.

A lawyer for Trump and the company, Alina Habba, called James’ investigation a “fishing expedition” and insisted the Trump Organization is “right on schedule” with its production of documents.
