“Mr. Trump, I know you take your business seriously, and I take mine seriously; I hereby hold you in civil contempt and fine you $10,000 a day,” Engoron ruled.
The documents that James asked for are linked to the Trump Organization’s business dealings. She stated that the organization manipulated property values for tax purposes.
“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 earlier this month. “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.”
