James wants to see the documents as part of its investigation into possible fraud in business transactions by The Trump Organization, the family business of the Trumps. It says the Trump Organization has issued misleading statements to lenders, insurance companies and the IRS about the value of six Trump properties, including golf clubs and iconic buildings such as Trump Tower in New York. Also about the “Trump brand” he could have been lied to. In this way, the Trump Organization will try to paint a more appropriate picture of Trump’s fortune, James said in January.
The Trump family alleges that James, who was elected to office and a member of the Democratic Party, is conducting a politically motivated investigation.
James’ investigation is one of the many legal battles the former president has been embroiled in. For example, the Trump Organization is also under investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney for potential financial crimes and insurance fraud. 15 counts of fraud and tax evasion against the Trump Organization are pending in New York court. That process will start in the middle of this year.
