    Default Caught a Witch Today...


    Lawsuit...
    "Ms. James concluded that Mr. Trump and his family business violated several state criminal laws and “plausibly” broke federal criminal laws as well. Her office, which in this case lacks authority to file criminal charges, referred the findings to federal prosecutors in Manhattan; it was not immediately clear whether the U.S. attorney would investigate.
    The 220-page lawsuit, filed in New York State Supreme Court, lays out in new and startling detail how, according to Ms. James, Mr. Trump’s annual financial statements were a compendium of lies. The statements, yearly records that include the company’s estimated value of his holdings and debts, wildly inflated the worth of nearly every one of his marquee properties — from Mar-a-Lago in Florida to Trump Tower and 40 Wall Street in Manhattan, according to the lawsuit."

    I predict this one takes, and spreads to other criminal indictments.

    I may be wrong, but I am sure they have the evidence.

    these moves should at least have a cooling effect on the next crook who gets delusions of grandeur.

    Here you go. As I recall they got Capone on tax evasion.:

    Donald Trump, 3 of his children sued for business fraud by New York AG

    Lawsuit alleges $250 million fraud, seeks to bar the Trumps from serving as executives of any company operating in New York

    By Shayna Jacobs and Jonathan O'Connell
    Updated September 21, 2022 at 12:20 p.m. EDT|Published September 21, 2022 at 11:20 a.m. EDT

    NEW YORK — New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit Wednesday accusing former president Donald Trump, three of his grown children and executives at his company of flagrantly manipulating property valuations to deceive lenders, insurance brokers and tax authorities into giving them better rates on bank loans and insurance policies and to reduce their tax liability.

    The 222-page civil complaint asks the New York Supreme Court to bar Trump, as well as Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump, from serving as executives at any company in New York, and to bar the Trump Organization from acquiring any commercial real estate or receiving loans from any New York-registered financial institution for five years.

    It seeks to recover more than $250 million in what James’s office says are ill-gotten gains received through the alleged deceptive practices. While the lawsuit itself is not a criminal prosecution, James (D) said she has referred possible violations of federal law to the Justice Department and the IRS.

    Wish this thread had a different title. I almost skipped it.

    It certainly feels as if the noose around Trump is tightening. Seems like he'll need to raise more 'campaign' funds to pay more lawyers.

    Beau’s take on it. I find him to hit pretty close to the mark most of the time. So far he has been right about Garland and Dearie.

    When his accounting firm dumped him it seems this was an inevitable outcome

    Let's see: We have

    1) Leticia James indicting not only Trump, but all his adult kids

    2) Th Jan 6th committee referrals to the DOJ

    3) The possible charges in the stolen secret documents found at Mar-a-lago.

    My guess: All of these could possibly result in a conviction, but #1 will hurt the worst, by far... he could be essentially banned from doing business in NY for years, required to disgorge hundreds of millions in fraudulent gains, and even get criminally indicted, with possible prison for him, Eric, Junior, and even Ivanka

    Time to stick a fork in him... he's done.

    Is there a current count on how many of his lawyers have had to hire criminal lawyers?

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    That’s likely a lower number than those that have hired criminal attorneys themselves.

    Anyway. It's just a thought.
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    The latest recruit, one Chris Kise, who's actually component from all reports, was paid $3 million up front by Trumps "Save America PC". (See, I told you he was competent.) CNN story here.

    DOJ can continue investigation with classified docs.
