    Default New York AG sues Trump over fraud allegations

    What a joke. This is the best NY can do? I'm really beyond bored with the crucifixion of Donald Trump

    Default I see a METHOD to their Liberal Madness.

    Democrats must be convinced that keeping TRUMP included in Federal Investigations that IT WILL PREVENT HIM FROM LEGALLY RUNNING while any Investigation is underway.
    Their problem is (and they know it). The Constitution does not cover such actions.
    So, by ignoring the Law, and the Constitution. They are convinced Trump wont run.
    .........UNTIL...another big problem ruins all of their HILLARY HOPES from the past.

    NAMELY.....RON DESANTIS.
    I may be older than most. I may say things not everybody will like.
    But despite all of that. I will never lower myself to the level of Liars, Haters, Cheats, and Hypocrites.

    They're going to nail him for something to disqualify him. Been saying that since the Russian Collusion hoax. It doesn't matter what they come up with. His loyal followers won't believe it, and his attackers will swear by it. Any objectivity where Trump is concerned has long gone out the window.

    He hasn't helped his own cause with his behavior.

    My understanding is that this NY State Dem AG is bringing a lawsuit against Trump for inflating the value of his assets when he obtained loans from banks.

    Correct my if I'm wrong, but if he did do that, shouldn't it be on the banks to bring the lawsuit? Not some Dem AG with a political agenda? And for most people applying for loans, the bank doesn't take your word for it when you list your assets - you have to provide some proof. You can't just drop by the First National Bank, tell them you have $1 million deposited at the Second National Bank, and they take your word for it and loan you $500,000.

    The whole idea of this lawsuit is screaming "political hack job". Trump should be able to counter-sue this AG and the State of NY for court costs and for libel.

    I don't know enough about the law but that is exactly what screamed at me first. The AG for the State of NY is bringing a civil lawsuit against a citizen?

    That just sounds all wrong to me.

    Tax fraud because they undervalued the assets for taxation purposes.

    Is not tax fraud a criminal offense? Seems to me the AG would just charge him with a criminal violation of the law if that was the case.

    Who's the injured party and what the alleged damages? That's how I understand civil law.

    Doesn't make sense.

    Oops, you're right. The link references civil offenses by the NY AG. It said criminal allegations are getting forwarded. More charges to come I'm sure.

    Sorry, you're right about the civil trial. The criminal charges are forthingcoming I believe.
