Source: New York Daily News

“Donald Trump Jr. extolled the virtues of the Trump Organization’s ‘sexy’ real estate portfolio on the witness stand Monday in response to softball questions from the defense team, in a spiel more akin to a sales pitch than fraud trial testimony. Don Jr., 45, is the first witness brought by Trump’s team of lawyers as they kick off their defense case in the $250 million fraud trial brought by New York Attorney General Tish James against ex-president Donald Trump, his adult sons and his company executives. … Donald Trump, a 2024 presidential front-runner, his adult sons have been accused of inflating the value of their worth to defraud banks and insurers of hundreds of millions of dollars. Engoron has already found them liable for the top fraud count. The trial will determine the rest of the counts and the potentially millions they’ll have to fork over.” (11/13/23)
