Trump and Family Sued by New York Attorney General

When Donald Trump spoke of the “Deep State” and of the “witch hunts” against him, the Democrats and the mainstream media scoffed.  They told the nation at large that this was a boogeyman story, just like “the Illuminati” or “the Great Reset”.  There was no concerted effort between the various institutions of our great nation to keep America and Americans down.  They said that Donald Trump was not being targeted by the full weight of the establishment, via their legal and political axis of influence.

But then a peculiar thing happened:  Trump left office.  And, no longer insulated against such attacks, he suddenly found himself the subject of a number of investigations, from Washington DC’s January 6th select committee, to Georgia’s election board, and beyond.

This week, another of the tentacles of this multi-faceted swamp creature has begun to squeeze Trump…and his family.

The New York Attorney General’s office has filed a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump and several of his family members, as well as associates and businesses, alleging “numerous acts of fraud and misrepresentation” regarding financial statements.

Attorney General Letitia James said at a news conference Wednesday morning after the complaint was filed in New York Supreme Court that Trump “inflated his net worth by billions of dollars,” and that his children Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric helped him.

“Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization repeatedly and persistently manipulated the value of assets to induce banks to lend money to the Trump Organization on more favorable terms than would otherwise have been available to the company,” James said, “to pay lower taxes, to satisfy continuing loan agreements and to induce insurance companies to provide insurance coverage for higher limits and at lower premiums.”

James’ smug humor was an unwelcome addition to the announcement as well.

“Claiming you have money that you do not have does not amount to the art of the deal, It’s the art of the steal,” James said, referencing the title of Trump’s 1987 book.

In addition to the multiple government agencies already involved in action against Trump, James has now also referred the matter to the IRS in a potential criminal complaint, further reshaping the proverbial battlefield.
