BREAKING: New York investigators tell court Donald Trump 's company used 'fraudulent or misleading' documents to get loans, tax breaks.

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York attorney general’s office late Tuesday told a court that its investigators had uncovered evidence that President Donald Trump ’s company used “fraudulent or misleading” asset valuations to get loans and tax benefits.

James’ office detailed its findings in a court motion seeking to force Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. to comply with subpoenas seeking their testimony.Investigators, the court papers said, had “developed significant additional evidence indicating that the Trump Organization used fraudulent or misleading asset valuations to obtain a host of economic benefits, including loans, insurance coverage, and tax deductions.”

Messages seeking comment were left with lawyers for the Trumps.Trump’s legal team has sought to block the subpoenas, calling them “an unprecedented and unconstitutional maneuver.” They say James is improperly attempting to obtain testimony that could then be used in the parallel criminal investigation, being overseen by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Mislead = defrauded Banks mislead daily, nobody went to jail. Oh my…….ANOTHER dramatic headline that ‘could’ land Trump in trouble!!!! Just like the weekly drama’s of the week before, this one will not amount to anything. Why are you so scared of Trump? so obvious that there was already a word for it, used by many notable authors before that grease stain was even spewed upon the earth.

Why did it take so long just to prove a very obvious thing? This family should have been residents in a prison long time ago.

Trump screwing over banks doesn't exactly make him a villain in the eyes of most Americans. Most Americans would love being able to screw over their banks 👇🏻 50 more years of investigations got us this? He will pay a fine and walk away like nothing happened. Rich people don't have real consequences for their actions. If he stole a backpack in New York he would have never seen the light of day again.

Get the Trumps into court!!! No surprise there 😡 Sometimes lawyers can't to understand business, not sometime as always Making progress. No shit, Sherlock. Remember when Trump used to call Hilary crooked Hillary. Who’s crooked now? I think it is not illegal if he used the loophole of the tax schedule.

Felony charges are 1st in a fatal crash involving Autopilot James’ office detailed its findings in a court motion seeking to force Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. to comply with subpoenas seeking their testimony. Investigators, the court papers said, had “developed significant additional evidence indicating that the Trump Organization used fraudulent or misleading asset valuations to obtain a host of economic benefits, including loans, insurance coverage, and tax deductions.” Messages seeking comment were left with lawyers for the Trumps. Trump’s legal team has sought to block the subpoenas, calling them “an unprecedented and unconstitutional maneuver.” They say James is improperly attempting to obtain testimony that could then be used in the parallel criminal investigation, being overseen by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Trump sued James in federal court last month, seeking to put an end to her investigation. In the suit, his lawyers claimed the attorney general, a Democrat, had violated the Republican’s constitutional rights in a “thinly-veiled effort to publicly malign Trump and his associates.” In the past, the Republican ex-president has decried James’ investigation and Bragg’s probe as part of a “witch hunt.” In a statement late Tuesday, James office said that it hasn’t decided whether the evidence outlined in Tuesday’s court papers merits legal action, but that the investigation should proceed unimpeded. ADVERTISEMENT “For more than two years, the Trump Organization has used delay tactics and litigation in an attempt to thwart a legitimate investigation into its financial dealings,” James said. “Thus far in our investigation, we have uncovered significant evidence that suggests Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization falsely and fraudulently valued multiple assets and misrepresented those values to financial institutions for economic benefit.” Although James’ civil investigation is separate from the criminal investigation, her office has been involved in both, dispatching several lawyers to work side-by-side with prosecutors from the Manhattan D.A.’s office. One judge has previously sided with James on other matters relating to the probe, including making another Trump son, Trump Organization executive Eric Trump, testify after his lawyers abruptly canceled a scheduled deposition. Last year, the Manhattan district attorney brought tax fraud charges against the Trump Organization and Weisselberg, its longtime chief financial officer. Weisselberg pleaded not guilty to charges alleging he and the company evaded taxes on lucrative fringe benefits paid to executives. Both investigations are at least partly related to allegations made in news reports and by Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, that Trump had a history of misrepresenting the value of assets.
