In a statement, James said he had ignored a “clear” order from New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron. Engoron’s February order is also required Trump and his two adult children are sitting in the ballot box Civil trial, but the matter is pending in the Court of Appeal.
“Instead of obeying the court order, Mr. Trump is trying to avoid it. We are seeking the immediate intervention of the courts as no one is above the law, ”James said on Thursday.
He asked Angoran to pay a $ 10,000 a day fine for Trump’s continued disobedience, but did not try to imprison him.
Investigators say Trump ignored a judge’s March 31 deadline to submit documents related to Sapona, which was issued in December, in a 26 – page motion filed by James’s office in Coron.
The movement says Trump “does not agree at all.” Instead, he sent out a response that “raised objections to each of the eight document requests in Sapona based on reasons such as excessive width, load and uniqueness”.
James has repeatedly argued that Trump and his legal team are to blame for unnecessary delays in the civil investigation, which hinders the ability of his commission of inquiry to move forward. His trial is parallel to a criminal case he is dealing with with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Brock (D).
Both offices are trying to determine whether other executives in the Trump administration, including Trump or the former president’s adult children, violated the law by manipulating the value of assets to obtain tax breaks or favorable credit ratios.
Trump and his family have denied wrongdoing and have denied that James’ investigation was politically motivated.
