NY: AG rests civil fraud case against disgraced former president’s company

Source: CNN

“The NY attorney general’s office has rested its civil case against former President Donald Trump, his adult sons Donald Jr. and Eric, and their company. The trial has spanned nearly six weeks so far with testimony from a total of 25 witnesses – 24 of which were in person. Ivanka Trump was the last witness called before the attorney general’s office rested its case. She followed testimony from her father and her brothers Donald Jr. and Eric. Judge Arthur Engoron had already ruled before the start of the trial that Donald Trump and his co-defendants committed ‘persistent and repeated’ fraud. The judge is now considering how much the Trumps will have to pay in damages for the profits they’ve allegedly garnered through fraudulent business practices, including inflating Donald Trump’s worth on financial statements. … Trump’s attorneys are set to begin their defense on Monday and indicated they would finish by mid-December.” (11/08/23)
