Trump blasts NY attorney general during rally

STORY: Following James’s announcement of a civil lawsuit, accusing the Trump Organization of "numerous acts of fraud and misrepresentation," Trump called for her to be removed from office, disbarred and banished from the legal profession.

Donald Trump, his family business, and three of his adult children were sued on Wednesday by New York's attorney general, who accused them of overvaluing the former U.S. president's assets and net worth in preparing financial statements from 2011 to 2021.

James also said Trump, who has long used his net worth to burnish his image and fame as a successful businessman and politician, inflated his wealth by billions of dollars to help his company obtain favorable financial terms on transactions, including lower interest rates and cheaper insurance coverage.

James, a Democrat, said the values of 23 assets had been "grossly and fraudulently inflated," and her office uncovered more than 200 examples of misleading asset valuations.
