Judge Lifts Trump Contempt Order in NY Attorney General’s Probe

Last month a New York Judge agreed to lift a civil contempt charge against President Trump if he pays $110,000 in fines.

The judge on Wednesday ruled Trump is no longer in contempt after failing to turn over subpoenaed documents in New York Attorney General Letitia James’s witch hunt probe.

CBS News reported:

A New York judge ruled Wednesday that Donald Trump is no longer in contempt for failing to turn over documents demanded in a subpoena by the state’s attorney general.

The former president’s April 25 contempt finding came after he contested a December subpoena seeking records related to his personal finances and the financing of several properties. Trump claimed he had no material that was responsive to the subpoena, leading to demands by the judge and the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James that his attorneys provide detailed explanations of how they conducted their search.

“Although we are pleased that the court has lifted the contempt finding, we maintain that it was wholly unwarranted and improper in the first place,” Alina Habba, an attorney for Trump, said in a text message. “We will push ahead with our appeal to secure justice for our client.”

A couple months ago New York Judge Arthur Engoron held Donald Trump in contempt and ordered a fine of $10,000 per day that he refuses to turn over documents to New York Attorney General Letitia James.

“Mr. Trump, I know you take your business seriously, and I take mine seriously, I hereby hold you in civil contempt and fine you $10,000 a day,” Engoron ruled.

The documents that James requested related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings. She claimed that the organization manipulated property values for tax purposes.

Trump’s lawyers submitted sworn affidavits arguing the former president cannot find the subpoenaed documents.

Trump’s lawyers are still moving forward with an appeal because they believe the contempt finding was “wholly unwarranted.”
