(TheRedWire.com) – New York Attorney General Letitia James was slammed following her recent push for the judge in the civil fraud case against former President Donald Trump to force him to pay $370 million for his allegedly illegal practices while also blocking him from doing business in New York.
Former President Donald Trump’s attorney Alina Habba in a recent interview on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo argued that James had always been “fame-hungry” and that she was placing “her politics” above the state’s interest.
He added that during the trial numerous experts came in who stated that Trump’s statements had undervalued his assets. He pointed out that their experts were on the Nobel Executive Committee reference team and they had informed the judge that Trump had not committed any wrongdoings. He further noted that the Deutsche Bank had previously stated that they “loved working” with the former President and that he had often paid his loans earlier than he needed to. He added that as they had argued everyone had benefited and made money and that Trump had been a great client.
Habba also argued that James kept pushing up the amount that Trump needed to be fined to pay, as at first, she had been seeking $250 million in connection to the allegations that he had inflamed his net worth in order to gain access to more beneficial business deals from banks and insurers.
As Habba pointed out the figure requested however appeared to have grown as James was looking to completely empty out the Trump Organization’s bank account and hurt individuals who had not committed any wrongdoing.
