In early April, New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a motion to implore Donald Trump for failing to disclose relevant documents in her civil investigation. James also requested a $10,000 fine for every day that Trump failed to disclose the necessary materials, which a judge approved last week. Trump, however, was not pleased with it. On the heels of his legal team petitioning to eliminate the fines, Trump expressed his concern about how he is being treated so unfairly. It''s very, very mean.
Trump said on the phone that he has a judge who frankly has been unquestionably unfair. One week after state court Judge Arthur Engoron cleared the former president of breaching a court order by leaving a deadline for records to respond to the states'' demands.
Trump said he''s given millions and millions of pages and says he''s giving more, giving more, and always giving more.
Despite Trump''s lawyers, the courts argue that the fines are unlawful and impermissible by law, and that he does not even have the personal records the state is looking for. According to his legal teams filing to halt the fines, the former president conducted a thorough, comprehensive search for all of the documents and items required in the subpoena, and provided complete and exact responses, which completely sounds like Trump. Diligent, thorough, and comprehensive is practically his middle name.
