New York sues Donald Trump: Walls are closing in on former president – is his time finally over?
heyWhen it comes to Donald Trump, language alone fails to describe what’s going on.
At various points, especially once the president is in office, a chart or time-table can prove to be a better tool for understanding events.
For example, his dismissal of James Comey in May 2017, apparently because the FBI director would not agree to go easy on General Michael Flynn, who lied to agents about his conversations with a Russian diplomat whose This led to the creation of the Mueller probe, which highlighted Trump’s many flaws and possible obstruction of justice.
Trump would rage for months about Mueller’s report – both claiming he was acquitted and that it was a witch-hunt.
When it came to the first impeachment of Trump, with the enthusiasm for such a venture among Democrats, it was often easier to follow a list of names after undoubtedly not being able to draw actionable conclusions from Mueller.
What was Rudy Giuliani doing in Kyiv? What he was demanding about leader Volodymyr Zelensky at the time, what was Hunter Biden’s relevance, and a whistleblower to Democrat Adam Schiff’s staff about Joe Biden’s attack on Zelensky for Trump’s apparent attempt to He was pressured to investigate in return for release. military?
Even with the notes in front of you, it was often hard to follow.
Now, once again, we need special support.
On Wednesday morning, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced a lawsuit against Trump and his three oldest children, accusing them of financial fraud, and claiming that they knowingly valued the business interests of the Trump Organization over several years. presented incorrectly.
“The pattern of fraud and deceit that was used by Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization for their own financial gain is astonishing,” James told a news conference in New York on Wednesday morning.
“claiming that you have money you don’t have is not an amount the art of the dealThis is the art of stealing”.
New York Attorney General Announces Trial Against Donald Trump
James wants $250 million in assets to be returned, Trump’s oldest three children barred from holding office, and Trump himself barred from any business deals in the city or state for five years. Something that should annoy and anger the person born. The city, and whose swagger often seems to be the epitome of 1970s or 1980s New York tycoons.
Trump was quick to dismiss the trial by James as an attempt to harass him and his family, accusing him of following him for political reasons, and calling his announcement “almost three years of persistent, targeted, unethical political described as the culmination of persecution”. ,
The lawsuit alone would have hurt Trump and his family, accusing the man who famously posed as a successful businessman. the ApprenticeOf lies and rank dishonesty.
But James’ lawsuit isn’t Trump’s only challenge, and that’s where we might need the help of an intersecting Venn diagram chart, or even an old-fashioned board game, such as Risk.
Because when James sends his findings to the court and other prosecutors, it’s important to remember that Trump faces lots and lots of other problems.
In August, FBI agents raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion in Florida, where they took hundreds of secret and classified documents that the former president allegedly should not have kept after leaving the White House.
The investigation being conducted by the Justice Department is conducting its own investigation on warrants sought for possible violations of the Espionage Act. So far, Trump has failed to come up with a plausible reason why he still had those documents, other than what he wanted.
It’s not clear how Trump gets out of this. For now, an independent appraiser, or special master, is reviewing documents confiscated by the FBI to determine whether someone may have been privileged.
Most legal experts have said such an examination is unnecessary and the Trump team’s request is widely seen as a delay tactic.
And it’s not their only pressing problem.
Next week, the committee investigating the January 6 attacks at the US Capitol, an episode for which Trump was impeached for a second time, is to meet to submit a report and announce any possible referrals.
Poll data showed that these carefully curated presentations dent Trump’s position among Republicans, a growing number of whom are at least willing to consider voting for someone else, even That Trump himself is adamant that he is going to run again.
One thing detracts from all these different things – Donald Trump himself, and his outspoken belief that normal rules and regulations don’t apply to him.
Trump has been repeatedly written about before various scandals only to bounce back.
Maybe it is his running away from all this. But for now, it looks like the wall is closing in.
