NY Attorney General Says Trump Organization Gave ‘Misleading’ Statements During Investigation

N

New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office says it needs the testimony of the former President and two of his children to determine their knowledge of what investigators say they have identified as numerous ‘misleading statements and omissions’ in tax submissions and financial statements used for loans. In a court filing yesterday, investigators said the office ‘intends to make a final determination about who is responsible for misstatements and omissions.’ They also said the ‘witnesses closest to the Trump Organization have asserted their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. And others have professed faulty memories or asserted that they were following instructions from more senior employees.’ Today, a spokesperson for the organization said that James’ allegations are ‘baseless and will be vigorously defended.’
