    New York attorney general files civil fraud lawsuit against Trump & Co.

    The New York state attorney general filed a sweeping lawsuit Wednesday against former President Donald Trump, three of his adult children and the Trump Organization, alleging they were involved in an expansive fraud lasting over a decade that the former President used to enrich himself.

    In the more than 200-page lawsuit, Attorney General Letitia James alleges the fraud touched all aspects of the Trump business, including its properties and golf courses. According to the lawsuit, the Trump Organization deceived lenders, insurers and tax authorities by inflating the value of his properties using misleading appraisals.

    “These acts of fraud and misrepresentation were similar in nature, were committed by upper management at the Trump Organization as part of a common endeavor for each annual Statement, and were approved at the highest levels of the Trump Organization – including by Mr. Trump himself,” the lawsuit states.

    Trump and his children, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, are named as defendants in the lawsuit. Allen Weisselberg, former CFO for the Trump Organization, and Jeff McConney, another longtime company executive, are also named.

    James said she believes state and criminal laws may have been violated and referred the matter to the US attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York and the Internal Revenue Service.

    The lawsuit accuses the former president of profiting from a ‘staggering’ fraud.

    Donald J. Trump, his family business and three of his adult children lied to lenders and insurers for more than a decade, fraudulently overvaluing his assets by billions of dollars in a sprawling scheme, according to a lawsuit filed on Wednesday by the New York attorney general, Letitia James, who is seeking to bar the Trumps from ever running a business in the state again.

    Ms. James concluded that Mr. Trump and his family business violated several state criminal laws and “plausibly” broke federal criminal laws as well. Her office, which in this case lacks authority to file criminal charges, referred the findings to federal prosecutors in Manhattan; it was not immediately clear whether the U.S. attorney would investigate.​


    While Mr. Trump has often leveraged law enforcement scrutiny to portray himself as a political martyr and raise money from his supporters, Ms. James’s lawsuit strikes at the foundation of his public image and his sense of self. Its detailed dissection of Mr. Trump’s financial statements suggests that the success he has attributed to financial savvy and business acumen are instead the product of fraud and chicanery.

                          You would be correct.

                              Glad you asked.

                              Washington(CNN)
                              A former employee for Hillary Clinton invoked the 5th Amendment about 125 consecutive times in a deposition with a conservative advocacy group, a spokeswoman for the group said Wednesday.

                              The spokeswoman for Judicial Watch said Bryan Pagliano, a Clinton IT aide, declined to answer questions when subpoenaed by the group. Pagliano was involved in setting up and maintaining Clinton's private email server and accepted an immunity deal with the FBI earlier this year in which he cooperated with their investigation into the server.

                              Pagliano's attorneys have said their client is "caught up in a lawsuit with an undisputed political agenda" and that he would not cooperate with Judicial Watch.

                                      So Leftist, are you okay with hypocrisy? Did you forget that the Evil Queen’s “people” pleaded the 5th over 100 times? Her IT people couldn’t explain why her emails disappeared,

                                      So you were obviously cool with that.

                                        I thought it was wrong then, just answer honestly what's so hard about that.

                                        You apparently thought it was fine for them to pleed the fifth, am I understanding you correctly?
