Former White House adviser Stephanie Grisham said on Saturday that Ivanka Trump may have lied in her recent court evidence over what she did and did not remember during her family’s civil fraud lawsuit via News Week.
Attorney General Letitia James of New York has filed a $250 million lawsuit against former President Donald Trump and his family, including his sons Eric and Donald Jr., alleging that from 2011 to 2021, Trump’s personal wealth and asset values were regularly inflated by billions of dollars in order to obtain better deals and loans.
Trump and his family have denied the allegations and insisted on their innocence, charging the prosecutors with having a political agenda and trying to sabotage Trump’s bid for president in 2024.
Last month, New York Judge Arthur Engoron declared that Trump, his adult sons, their companies, and executives had committed fraud. As a result, they will be held civilly accountable for the remainder of the trial, to a certain extent.
Six further charges, such as forging company documents, insurance fraud, and conspiracy allegations, will also be decided by the court. As a jury trial was not chosen by Trump’s legal team, Engoron himself will make the decision about the allegations. The result could see Trump lose some of his famous properties and be barred from doing business in New York.
The oldest daughter of the former president, Ivanka Trump, was first listed in James’s lawsuit, but a judge subsequently attempted to have her removed as a co-defendant.
