Former United States President Donald Trump must pay $ 110,000 in fines to New York attorney in addition to other obligations practices, as a judge stated today.
THE Judge Arthur Engoron said in an online hearing that the $ 10,000-a-day fine imposed on Trump in late April ceased to accumulate on Friday when the former president’s lawyers filed new affidavits with detailed steps to produce documents related to the investigation by Attorney General Leticia James.
Trump had said he had no relevant documents, a claim that surprised Judge Engoron last month.
The judge gave Trump until May 20 to file affidavits, among other things, from associates familiar with his record-keeping practices, and to complete the report by a third company that undertook to investigate the Trump Organization’s records.
Prosecutor Leticia James said her investigation had found evidence that the Trump Organization – which manages hotels, golf courses and other real estate around the world – had given misleading financial information to banks and tax authorities to secure benefits such as soft loans. terms and tax breaks.
For his part, Republican tycoon Donald Trump denies the wrongdoing and describes the investigation by the Democratic Leticia James as “politically motivated”.
