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.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump was fined $10,000 per day through May 6, when his attorneys first filed explanations of their attempts to search for subpoenaed documents. In the weeks since, the judge and the attorney general have demanded affidavits from two dozen Trump Organization employees and attorneys in an effort to learn how Donald Trump’s eponymous company has for a decade apparently kept nearly no records on the personal finances of its namesake.


“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,” Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, said in a statement. “We will push ahead with our appeal to secure justice for our client.”

In his affidavit, Trump wrote that “it has been my customary practice to delegate document handling and retention responsibilities to my executive assistants.”

James’ office claims that its civil fraud investigation has collected evidence “showing that Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization used fraudulent and misleading financial statements to obtain economic benefit.”

  1. Give it up you ignorant Trump haters it is not your business NY racist AG James anything about Trumps personal finances or any of his employees. The IRS scrutinize his taxes every year! Get yourselves some serious mental help!

    • I’d like to know how she expects Trump to come up with the required documents that he is not able to obtain. I hope Trump didn’t pay any fines and that they are waived. That’s a overly excessive fine that is meant to try to hurt him financially. Lil’ Leticia needs to get over her hatred

  2. Nothing but a hate-filled fishing expedition and witch hunt. And the one who can somehow get Trump in trouble will be famous and secure a huge future in the Democrat party!
    This is so transparent and pathetic.

  3. NOW HERE IS A VINDICTIVE, ANGRY, HATEFUL PERSON, NEW YORK ATTONREY GENERAL LETITIA JAMES. SHE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM HER POSITION. SHE IS NOT FIT TO SERVE IN THAT CAPACITY. SHE IS ON A HATE VENDETTA.

  4. You think that the Trump haters in Democrat politics would learn from using $35 million if our tax layers money from a witch hunt on Trump colluding with Russia then made a scam to impeach him with and got caught lying about it and still ignorant Adam Schiff is still running hus lying mouth about it for years. Adam Schiff lied about strong evidence about Trump in the committee hearing. Another lie! Trump and his kids fully cooperated fully Yet the Biden’s NEVER cooperated involving the laptop fr hell! Try to smear Trump’s name by saying he paid $750 for the year, but thank you the Democrats peering in his business, it was reported back that Trump had paid millions before and was owed back in his taxes. Makes the Democrats look like idiots! Now this crap! Petty and childish! These politicians in their delusional minds think they are smarter and heroic are actually stupid and ruining their reputation by their stupidity and hatred. It’s showing everytime!
