“A New York court on Tuesday denied former President Donald Trump’s request to put a halt to the $10,000 in daily fines and a contempt order levied by a judge on April 25. Trump was held in contempt after failing to comply with a December 1, 2021, subpoena from New York State Attorney General Letitia James in her office’s wide-ranging civil fraud probe into the former president and his company. … Trump has maintained he has none of the documents — including records related to his personal finances, as well as various properties and projects associated with the Trump Organization — James is seeking.” (05/04/22)
