New York AG Acts To Compel Trumps To Testify In Financial Fraud Case

1
New York Attorney General Letitia James took legal action Tuesday night against former President Donald Trump and two of his children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, to compel them to testify in a civil investigation into the Trump Organization’s financial dealings.

James filed a motion to compel with the Supreme Court of the State of New York, seeking a court order to enforce the subpoenas and her office’s demands for documents from Donald Trump Jr.

“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 in a statement. “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.”

Those misrepresentations, James said, may have been used to secure loans, insurance coverage or tax deductions for buildings in New York City and golf courses in New York and Scotland, among other holdings.

James’ office subpoenaed the three Trumps in recent weeks as part of a yearslong investigation into the Trump Organization, the first time her office went public that it was seeking information from Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. The investigation began in March 2019, shortly after Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen testified before Congress that the business magnate had inflated some assets to obtain favorable loan terms while devaluing others to pay less in taxes.

The Trump family has sued the attorney general’s office to have the suit thrown out and in December said the case was a “thinly-veiled effort to publicly malign Trump and his associates.”

James said Tuesday, however, that “no one in this country can pick and choose if and how the law applies to them.”

“We will not be deterred in our efforts to continue this investigation and ensure that no one is above the law,” she said.

Eric Trump Invoked 5th Amendment 500 Times During 6-Hour Deposition

Former President Donald Trump's son Eric Trump invoked the Fifth Amendment more than 500 times over the course of a six-hour deposition to avoid answering questions as part of New York Attorney General Letitia James' ongoing civil probe of the Trump Organization.

That detail was made public late Tuesday as part of a 115-page filing that James submitted to the Supreme Court of New York in an effort to compel Donald Trump, his eldest son Donald Trump Jr., and his daughter Ivanka Trump to testify under oath as part of the investigation, which began in 2019.

The new legal document outlines James' case that Trump and his family business "falsely and fraudulently valued multiple assets and misrepresented those values to financial institutions for economic benefit."

The former president, who is widely expected to run for the White House again in 2024, has refused to cooperate with—and attempted to quash—a subpoena from James seeking his sworn testimony.

"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 in a statement Tuesday. "The Trumps must comply with our lawful subpoenas for documents and testimony because no one in this country can pick and choose if and how the law applies to them."

"We will not be deterred in our efforts to continue this investigation and ensure that no one is above the law," she added.

Eric Trump, who has served as an officer at the Trump Organization, was deposed by the New York attorney general's office in October 2020.

A month earlier, longtime Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg sat for his sworn testimony to James' office. During the five-and-a-half-hour deposition, Weisselberg "invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination to more than 500 questions," the new filing states.

On the campaign trail in 2016, Trump infamously suggested that only guilty people invoke the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering questions.

"The mob takes the Fifth," Trump declared.

As the New York Times observed Tuesday, the latest development in the James investigation came as the Trump Organization "is already under indictment in Manhattan."

"In July, the former Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., charged the company and Mr. Weisselberg with carrying out a 15-year scheme to dole out off-the-books luxury perks to certain executives," the Times noted. "That case is scheduled to head to trial later this year."

Trump Organization responds to detailed fraud case by personally attacking the New York AG

President Donald Trump has been banned from social media, forcing him to send out statements via press releases. Such was the case after a filing from New York Attorney General Letitia James.

James' office filed an extensive statement of facts in the case involving fraud around the Trump Organization. Numerous allegations are cited with supplemental documents from the AG. In one case, Trump was quoted falsely inflating the size of his penthouse by three times. Another case revealed Trump tried to get appraisers to grossly exaggerate the value of his massive Georgian Mansion, Seven Springs. Ivanka Trump was on the hook as well, as she was the primary person dealing with Deutsche Bank. According to the documents, Ms. Trump "caused misleading financial statements to be submitted." Eric Trump was questioned for six hours, answering over 500 questions by using his Fifth Amendment rights.

Through the Trump Org. spokesperson, the ex-president and his family went after James personally. The company didn't respond to any of the specific allegations, only to say that the "facts" were "misrepresented." According to the Trump Org., he is innocent of all of the examples of fraud cited in the court documents because James pledged to investigate Trump during her campaign.

"The only one misleading the public is Letitia James. She defrauded New Yorkers by basing her entire candidacy on a promise to get Trump at all costs without having seen a shred of evidence and in violation of every conceivable ethical rule," the statement from the Trump Organization read. "Three years later she is now faced with the stark reality that she has no case. So, in response to Trump suing her and filing multiple ethical complaints, and on the heels of her failed governor's race, she has no choice but to mislead the public yet again by misrepresenting the facts and ignoring her own inflammatory comments. Her allegations are baseless and will be vigorously defended."

It was oddly similar to the statement from Donald Trump Jr., who also personally attacked James as "America's most corrupt AG," without providing any evidence.

He claimed that James "won't even directly respond to our motions about her political targeting of my family because she knows her actions are indefensible. This is nothing more than political retribution from her on behalf of the entire Dem Party. She should be disbarred!"

It's the same kind of tactic Trump and his children have used against almost everyone who has opposed him, especially judges and the courts.

When students from the defunct Trump University sued for fraud, then-candidate Trump called Judge Gonzalo Curiel "a hater of Donald Trump" and a "very hostile" person who had "railroaded" him.

"I’ll be seeing you in November, either as president…" Trump continued, trailing off. "I think Judge Curiel should be ashamed of himself. I think it’s a disgrace that he’s doing this. The judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican…I think the Mexicans are going to end up loving Donald Trump."

In another incident, `Trump mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for not remembering details about the night of her alleged assault 36 years ago in front of a Mississippi campaign rally.

"I had one beer!" the president said, about Ford's statement she wasn't inebriated, as Kavanaugh during the alleged sexual assault.

Trump and ally Roger Stone used a tactic of attacking the judge handling Stone's case. They were so brutal with their insults that they then tried to say that the judge couldn't render an unbiased verdict. It didn't work and a gag order was set, which Stone violated.

‘Incredibly dumb’: Former federal prosecutor mocks Eric Trump for telling NY AG ‘we are prosecuting you’

Last week Eric Trump declared it was "unconstitutional" for the Attorney General of New York to sue Donald Trump. Overnight New York Attorney General Letitia James released a 115-page report – a legal filing – detailing "significant evidence" of possible fraud by the Trump Organization, Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump.

Wednesday morning Eric Trump lashed out at the New York AG, telling Letitia James his family is "prosecuting" her, which is legally impossible. He posted a highly-edited video showing James on the campaign trail promising to investigate Donald Trump – a legitimate campaign pledge.

"Letitia you can not escape your own words," Eric Trump posted to Twitter, along with the doctored video. "This is all window dressing for your abuse of office and ethical misconduct (which we are prosecuting you for) and northing [sic] more than a PR move to revive a political career after your gubernatorial disaster."

James briefly ran for governor but pulled out, presumably to complete her investigation into the Trump Organization and Trump family.

Ivanka Trump 'caused misleading financial statements to be submitted to Deutsche Bank': NY AG

Former White House advisor Ivanka Trump is accused of misleading Deutsche Bank and the federal government in court documents filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

After Donald Trump, Ivanka, and Donald Trump, Jr. sought to quash a subpoena, James filed a 115-page motion arguing why all three should be compelled to testify.

James says Ivanka worked as an agent of her father in her role as executive vice president for development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization.

"Until January 2017, Ms. Trump was a primary contact for the Trump Organization’s largest lender, Deutsche Bank. In connection with this work, Ms. Trump caused misleading financial statements to be submitted to Deutsche Bank and the federal government," James wrote.

The allegation is over documents submitted to the bank over Trump's Doral golf course and Trump International Hotel and Tower Chicago along with General Services Administration as part of Trump's lease of the old post office in DC that became Trump International Washington.

The one to do that will be Allen Weisselberg.

I expect the other Trumps will do the same thing. I even expected Steve Bannon to take the 5th, but he want's the drama and the media attention, he might do it in the end. Same thing the Mafia did for decades they took the 5th, she should learn from the FBI and DOJ. James needs an insider like Michael Cohen and hopefully he has plenty of documents. It's not going to be easy, it took decades to get the Mafia.

If Weisselberg doesn't cooperate he's got to worry Trump may turn on him': Former White House lawyer

The New York Times revealed Tuesday that sources with knowledge of Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance's investigation into former President Donald Trump and his company the Trump Organization may indict the CFO Allen Weisselberg as soon as this summer.

Speaking to MSNBC host Joy Reid, former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal and ex-federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner warned Weisselberg that this is going to come down like a ton of bricks.

Kirschner explained that the evidence should concern Trump because it makes it more likely that Weisselberg could make a plea deal and hang Trump out to dry.

"But there's also a long game to be played here," Kirschner continued. "I've had defendants who were not exactly like Weisselberg, but they were people that I desperately needed to bring on board to build my case against the bigger criminal fish, and they wouldn't plead guilty. Allen Weisselberg may not plead guilty. So, here's how we play the long game as prosecutors. We indict him. We try him. We convict him. And we sit down with him again after a jury has said, guilty, but before a judge has sentenced him. And we say, 'What are you going to do now, chief? You still have an opportunity. We can still reduce your sentence somewhat, but guess what? You're not going to get as good a deal as if you had come on board and cooperated upfront when you should have.' So, there are still a lot of moving pieces to the Allen Weisselberg part of this equation."

Reid asked if it was possible for Trump to walk away from the case without consequences if he is able to successfully blame it all on Weisselberg. Katyal said he didn't think so.

"We'll have to study this new reporting by the New York Times, but to me, it looks like the first domino for Donald Trump is starting to fall," said Katyal. "And this has been an inexorable path since the Supreme Court, 9-0, said Trump Tax returns have to be turned over, so these financial records that you're seeking about Trump are now in the hands of prosecutors. We know that those New York prosecutors have convened a grand jury. They're going to sit for six months, three days a week."

He also explained that prosecutors sent a warning letter to the Trump Organization calling it a criminal investigation. All prosecutors must do is tell Weisselberg is what will happen if he doesn't cooperate.

"I think prosecutors here know one other thing, which is that Allen Weisselberg knows where all the keys to the kingdom are," Katyal continued. "He knows everything. So, most normal companies have a compliance office that deals with all these questions. Not the Trump Organization. The Trump Organization's compliance office was basically, like, a giant sharpie drawing of the presidential seal or something like that. So, it's really all up to Weisselberg. And so, if they can flip Weisselberg, and I suspect they can because of that dynamic that Michael Cohen was just revealing, this kind of prisoner's dilemma where if Weisselberg doesn't cooperate, he's got to worry that Trump may turn on him. Each of them has to worry about that and that becomes a race to get information and that's why I think ultimately bad news for Trump.
https://www.rawstory.com/allen-weissel ... un-on-him/

As I posted earlier Weisselberg will be the key and Trump et Al would be happy to put the blame on him. TOT would say he didn’t understand and just claim that Weisselberg mislead him and lied to get more money for himself and he stole from Trump. The lies will be thick and deep.

There's more to this than the legal aspect. Don't neglect the financial leverage.

By advertising that the state has evidence for financial fraud by the Trump organization, it presents exposure risks for every financial institution that has ever done business with them. To wit, lenders. Their legal branches have just been handed the keys to shiny new justifications to turn down loan applications. They have been presented an opportunity to demand immediate repayment of outstanding debts. Their cash flow could get seriously impaired until they prove their innocence in a court of law.

Of course, Russian benefactors have different priorities and perspectives.

Startling details of possible Trump Organization crimes revealed in new legal filing

A new legal filing by New York’s attorney general this week accused former President Donald Trump’s company of misleading lenders about the financial health of its landmark downtown Manhattan skyscraper, 40 Wall Street, while seeking to renew the building’s mortgage.

Though the Trump Organization called 40 Wall Street “one of the great success stories post 2008,” lender Capital One found the company’s estimates of the building’s worth so unbelievable that the bank declined to refinance the tower’s loan in 2015, the filing alleges.

“Capital One harbored great skepticism regarding the Trump Organization’s valuations,” says the filing, which was submitted by Attorney General Letitia James in response to Trump’s efforts to block her from questioning him and his children as part of an ongoing investigation by her office.

The new accusations offer startling details about possible financial fraud involving 40 Wall Street — one of the subjects of a 2019 ProPublica story that highlighted conflicting financial documents the Trump Organization had filed for the building.

ProPublica’s story documented how income, expense and occupancy numbers cited in the eventual refinance for 40 Wall Street and another Manhattan building sometimes didn’t match those the company had filed with city tax authorities. A lower valuation for the city would produce a lower tax bill, while a higher valuation for lenders would make it easier to get a new mortgage.

One expert said it appeared like the Trump Organization was keeping “two sets of books.”

“It feels like a set of books for the tax guy and a set for the lender,” said Kevin Riordan, a financing expert and real estate professor at Montclair State University, at the time.

In her filing, James asserts that Trump Organization employees, including Trump’s children, took part in a pattern of deception in which they misled lenders, insurers and the Internal Revenue Service by vastly overstating values for 40 Wall Street and a host of other Trump properties, including golf courses in Scotland, Los Angeles and Westchester and his buildings on Fifth and Park avenues.

The Trump Organization on Thursday lashed out at James, a Democrat, via a statement emailed by a spokesperson, saying, “The only one misleading the public is Letitia James.

“She defrauded New Yorkers by basing her entire candidacy on a promise to get Trump at all costs without having seen a shred of evidence and in violation of every conceivable ethical rule,” the organization’s statement said. It asserted that James “has no case” and that the “allegations are baseless and will be vigorously defended.”

Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for Trump’s children Donald Jr. and Ivanka Trump, also criticized James, accusing her of making “repeated threats to target the Trump family” and ignoring legal protections for “the very people she is investigating.”

James is seeking to compel testimony and obtain documents from Trump, Donald Jr. and Ivanka, who she said have not cooperated with her investigation.

The filing says that property valuations formed the heart of statements of financial condition that the Trump Organization used to demonstrate its net worth. The statements, which James said contained inaccuracies, were compiled by an outside accounting agency from a data spreadsheet and backup material provided by the Trump Organization.

Trump’s personal guarantees to some banks and insurers required him to certify that his financial statements were correct, according to James’ filing. The documents say her office has evidence Trump was “personally involved in reviewing and approving” the statements.

If the company or its employees are found to have deliberately provided misleading valuations, they could face civil or criminal penalties. The company is under investigation by both James and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

With its classic Gothic Revival style and signature green spire, 40 Wall Street gave Trump a presence in the most famous financial district in the world. His company doesn’t own it, but rather purchased in 1995 the right to act as the landlord for its office and retail space. Finding tenants for that space, however, particularly in the building’s narrow tower, proved a challenge, especially after 9/11, when occupancy sagged and the entire financial district struggled, the ProPublica investigation found.

James’ filing says that as early as 2009, Capital One, which held the mortgage on the property, “raised substantial concerns about cash flow” at 40 Wall Street, prompting in-person meetings with Trump, longtime Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg and others. Donald Trump Jr. was also involved in the discussions, the filing says.

The conversations led to a loan modification in 2010, with bank personnel harboring doubts about the Trump Organization’s representations of the building’s financial standing. During those discussions, the Trump Organization provided the bank with profit numbers for 2010 of $12.3 million, which bank personnel described as “very optimistic.”

More startling were the differences between valuations that appeared on Trump’s statements of financial condition and those prepared by appraisers for Capital One. The Trump Organization set the value of the building at $601.8 million in 2010, while the appraisals for Capital One done by Cushman & Wakefield set it at just less than one-third of that, $200 million.

Weisselberg shared one of the company’s higher valuations for the building with the bank in early 2015, boasting of “considerable capital investment” and “a much improved cash flow.” He wanted Capital One to restructure its loan and waive a principal payment of $5 million due in November.

But Capital One declined to refinance the mortgage, referencing its own internal estimate that the building was only worth $257 million in the fall of 2014.

That year, 40 Wall Street’s $160 million mortgage was a thorn in Trump’s side, representing his then-largest single debt as he launched his campaign for the presidency.

After Capital One’s rejection, the Trump Organization turned to Ladder Capital Finance, where Weisselberg’s son Jack was a director. Ladder commissioned its own appraisal. Though Ladder used the same Cushman & Wakefield team that had estimated the building was worth $220 million in 2012, the team this time more than doubled the value to $540 million, legal filings said. Ladder approved the refinance.

James’ filing said that evidence her office obtained suggests the 2015 Cushman valuation “appears to have used demonstrably incorrect facts and aggressive assumptions” to arrive at the higher estimate, which the document said “did not reflect a good faith assessment of value.”

On Thursday, Cushman & Wakefield defended its practices, saying it took “great issue with mischaracterizations concerning the work performed and believe they are not supported by the evidence.

“The referenced Cushman & Wakefield appraisals were undertaken and completed in good faith based upon the material information made available,” the company said in a statement emailed by a spokesperson. “We stand behind the appraisers and the referenced appraisals which reflect fair valuations based upon the underlying facts and market dynamics.”

In 2015, the Trump Organization’s statement of financial condition listed the value of the building as $735.4 million.

Ladder Capital and Capital One did not immediately respond to requests for comment Thursday. Allen Weisselberg and Jack Weisselberg could not immediately be reached.

ProPublica’s 2019 story found several instances of the Trump Organization reporting much lower expenses to its lender, Ladder Capital, than to city tax authorities — including 40 Wall Street’s insurance costs and ground lease. Jack Weisselberg declined to comment at the time on Ladder’s loans or his relationship with the Trump Organization. Executives with Ladder also declined to be quoted for the story then.

In 2019, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified before Congress that the Trump Organization inflated valuations at times to appear more profitable and deflated them to achieve a lower real estate tax bill.

More interesting is "Trump’s personal guarantees to some banks and insurers required him to certify that his financial statements were correct, according to James’ filing. The documents say her office has evidence Trump was “personally involved in reviewing and approving” the statements."

If there are personal guarantees, then not only is the property in issue but Trump's own direct money is at risk. They won't just come for the building they will want what's in his pockets as well.

If he's lucky that is. Some lenders might look deeper than just his pockets.

Allen Weisselberg couldn't explain how the value of one $400M Trump property doubled in one year

Allen Weisselberg, former chief financial officer for the Trump Organization, faced difficulty explaining how one of the company's properties had been valued at approximately 435 million — more than double what it had been valued the year before — according to newly released documents.

On Tuesday, January 18, the documents were released by New York Attorney General Letitia James' office. "'Mr. Weisselberg testified that he could not explain this discrepancy," the documents reportedly said.

According to Business Insider, there is incriminating documentation that alleges assets throughout former President Donald Trump's financial portfolio of businesses and real estate properties had been mis-valued. There is also speculation that the valuations could be part of an elaborate financial fraud scheme.

On the list of properties, the Trump International Golf Club Scotland was highlighted.

Officials believe the increased value appears to center on "assuming the right to build 2,500 luxury homes on the property – despite approval to build fewer than 1,500 holiday apartments and golf villas."

On Wednesday, January 19 the Trump Organization released a statement criticizing the investigation, and arguing that it is a politically-motivated tactic aimed at damaging the former president.

"The only one misleading the public is Letitia James. She defrauded New Yorkers by basing her entire candidacy on a promise to get Trump at all costs without having seen a shred of evidence and in violation of every conceivable ethical rule," said the statement.

The latest development comes months after Weisselberg was charged with multiple offenses in connection with an alleged tax evasion scheme involving the Trump Organization.

When your chief accountant can't explain how this happened then you know you're in deep orange dodo. Sounds like TOT and company were keeping triple entry books. As the old story goes. A ma was applying for a bookkeeping job and the CEO asked him if he knew how to keep double entry books. The applicant answered back I can not only do double entry books, but I can do triple entry books. The CEO said questioning, "Triple Entry?" The applicant said, "Yes, Triple Books. One set for you, one set for your stockholders and directors and one set for the government."
