Nothing ever ceases to amaze when it comes to media, lawsuits and the former President of U.S. Donald Trump. Although, today’s news is no laughing matter. While Trump’s hearing was ongoing in a lower Manhattan Court room, a bomb threat was called into local law enforcement.
As per We Love Trump: “A bomb threat was called in just as a judge in lower Manhattan was about to start a hearing over a $250 million lawsuit by New York Attorney General Letitia James against Donald Trump,” Bloomberg reports.
Although much attention has focused on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg potentially indicting Trump in the Stormy Daniels “hush money” prosecution, Letitia James is also going after Trump in another case.
Read a brief background on the Letitia James witch hunt at ABC News: For 20 years, Donald Trump and his family enriched themselves through “numerous acts of fraud and misrepresentations,” New York Attorney General Letitia James alleges in a new lawsuit that accuses the Trumps of “grossly” inflating the former president’s net worth by billions of dollars and cheating lenders and others with false and misleading financial statements.
The civil lawsuit, filed Wednesday in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, seeks a $250 million judgment and a prohibition on any of the Trumps leading a company in the state of New York.
“We found that Mr. Trump, his children, and the corporation used more than 200 false asset valuations over a ten year period,” James said at a press conference announcing the charges.
