A New York judge has ruled that the Trump Organization must turn over tax documents to Letitia James, the state’s Attorney General.
James has long been an opponent of the President, and has set her sights on the President’s family.
Tax Documents Must Be Handed To New York AG
The Trump Organization is currently being investigated by New York’s Attorney General, Letitia James, along with the Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, in two separate investigations relating to tax write-offs the President allegedly linked to consulting fees paid by his daughter Ivanka.
In Tuesday’s ruling, the state judge said that the Trump Organization must hand over documents relating to discussions with an engineer and a property in Westchester.
At question is the use of tax abatements on the property.
Trump Organization attorneys had argued the documents were protected by attorney-client privilege. Amy Carlin, on the Trump Organization’s legal team, said that they had “every expectation that those communications would be confidential.”
However, Eric Haren, with the Attorney General’s office, had said that the Trump Organization waived that privilege after they disclosed other documents to the IRS to “gain benefit” for tax reasons.
“Literally everything other than the final appraisal value,” was not disclosed, Haren said.

Ivanka Trump: “This Is Harassment, Pure And Simple”
The existing investigations have been slammed by the Trump Organization, the President’s family, and Republicans as just another Democrat witch hunt against the President.
“This is just the latest fishing expedition in an ongoing attempt to harass the company,” said Trump Organization attorney Alan Garten in November. “Everything was done in strict compliance with applicable law and under the advice of counsel and tax experts.”
“This is harassment, pure and simple,” tweeted Ivanka Trump.
“This ‘inquiry’ by NYC Democrats is 100% motivated by politics, publicity, and rage. They know very well that there’s nothing here and that there was no tax benefit whatsoever,” she added.

NY AG James even appeared on NBC’s “The View” to promote conspiracy theories about President Trump, and claimed that he would resign before January 20th, in order to allow Mike Pence to take office as President and pardon him.
“In all likelihood, I suspect that he will pardon his family members, his children, his son-in-law, and individuals in his administration as well as some of his close associates. And then I suspect, at some point in time, he will step down and allow the vice president to pardon him,” James said.
.@NewYorkStateAG @TishJames tells @TheView she suspects Pres. Trump “will step down and allow the vice president to pardon him” before the end of his term as she says the “vast majority of legal scholars have indicated that he cannot pardon himself.” https://t.co/f8u2wbJuik pic.twitter.com/xeJwNtA4eH

Donating old T Shirts
So where's an investigation into Omar's husband company? Millions of dollars from the ppp fund, and thousands of dollars to hus company from her campaign. Something stinks.
Truth hurts, doesn't it The Political Insider? There was absolutely nothing un-civil in my rejected comment.
Kushner OK’d Trump Campaign Shell Company That Secretly Paid Inner Circle
Jared Kushner approved the creation of a shell company that operated like a “campaign within a campaign” and secretly funneled millions of dollars in campaign cash to Trump family members. The company, American Made Media Consultants Corporation and American Made Media Consultants LLC, took more than half of the Trump campaign’s massive $1.26 billion war chest and was largely shielded from having to publicly report financial details. However, Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump was the company’s president, Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew was its VP, and Trump campaign CFO Sean Dollman was treasurer and secretary.
The mysterious company caused consternation among other campaign staffers, who had no idea how it was spending money, and the Campaign Legal Center filed a civil complaint with the FEC in June accusing the Trump campaign of laundering $170 million largely through it.
getting very tired of hearing the garbage coming out of Democratic states. Nothing being advertised by the MSM of the illegalities being done by the left. I hope if President Trump does leave the president position, he sues them for malicious prosecution or what ever he can. But I guess she is aware that his taxes are being reviewed by the IRS, she knows exactly what he did and how much he paid. Wait until he files his taxes and see that he wrote off his salary as a donation (not verified). Not that it matters anymore since he is a resident of Florida. What does the Manhattan DA have to do with it, if it occurred in Westchester County?
nazi soros Letitia and BO appointed judge are harassing people that no longer live in NY and there was no other people complaining about the TRUMP organization is plain and simple fascism.
I think I would find out just how pure the NYAG is and run her record for the public to see….that kind of agenda is usually connected to unsavory activity….
Old bone spur doesn't deserve a ride on Marine One. Need to select a more appropriate mode of transport to get his lazy butt out of the White House.
Here we go. He is still in the Oval Office and before he can put a foot on the first riser to Marine One 33 days away, like the escalator, the progressives are planning to persecute him and his family even further.
And you know what that does to me? It makes me raging mad that these evil, hateful, corrupted, unethical, immoral minions of the Communist Party USA have such gall as to continue with the stick in the eye routine.
Wipe your chin! Soooo hypocritical because you like to throw around the "C" word!
O.K. Let's say your a master at the skin flute.
That's can be your job I'll pass
Owen Bart like to eat Lattia James "C" word.
Lattia James is the definition of the "C" word.
If they are going to do anything involving money/taxes of the Trumps then they should also look at the Clinton's, as well as another of others who pay outrageous paydays to their family members for stuffing envelopes at a yearly salary or $240,000! I would love to get that!
Touched a raw nerve?
"Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." – Saul Alinsky
Childish reply does not warrant a response…Have a good day !
BTW have you nothing better to do than be a troll on a conservative site ?
Oh I'm sure you are and if so your decision making has been deluded , you may be suffering from Creepy Joe's cognitive decline as well…BTW have you nothing better to do than be a troll on a conservative site ?
My eyes are open and not blinded by the Fog of Trump.
BTW I'm older than you sonny.
Like I said Simon, "Devoid of common sense", the swamp in DC is quite large filled with many nefarious individuals who can alter a persons life…You need to open your eyes sonny.
"Knuckleheads can continue your witch hunt" I guess you quoting Bill Barr in his press conference today.
Hope you watched it.
And I'm sure every word you speak is factual, well you Knuckleheads can continue your witch hunt and once again nothing will be found. It's absolutely amazing to me how the left has gone after a president who has done more for the people of this country than any president in my lifetime, a man who really didn't need to run for office cause he has achieved so much more than many, but he saw our country being played and he decided to intervene for the good of the Republic. I worry for my children and grand kids, I worry that they will enter a world devoid of common sense, I see a lack of it already on these sites…God bless us all…Yeah I know you don't believe in him.
Nope never cheated. Unlike Trump, I paid my fair share. As a matter of fact, I was once audited by the IRS and they said I was due a larger refund. Of course, I couldn't deduct what I paid my daughter for "consultation fees."
Geez…I wonder how many illegal write offs you had on your taxes ? Why don't we look into all the elitist in Hollywood and NYC and see what we come up with there as well and then while we are at it lets arrest all the CPA'S who…you know…show us how we can save a little and there, but I'll bet SimonKaretnik never cheated on his taxes…no not him, he's a Democrat and he's honest…Yeah right !
"The impact on NY's tax base would be devastating" Not really. Don't forget rarely paid state taxes. That's way the crook is being investigated by the SDNY.
Sail on down the line
'Bout a half a mile or so
And I don't really wanna know
Where you're going
Will these radicals ever let go of President Trump? Probably not. If I were him I would move his entire business operation out of NYC and shut down/abandon his building. The impact on NY's tax base would be devastating, and it couldn't happen to a worse bunch of liberals. America as we know is gone. Business will suffer, the American people will suffer -all in the name of socialism and wealth redistribution. I hope that works out for you NY, because you will become a ghost town. Resist Americans! This is the new civil war. Do all that you can do to overturn and subvert these evil liberals who want to destroy the greatest nation in the world – all in support of the new world order. Yes, we will become mindless Chinese robots. If that's what you want, fine, but not me! NEVER Biden/Harris!
i agreed with you that slavery is wrong in all forms.
The Africans are being sold even today in the hidden slave markets of the Sudan for the cotton fields. i do not here anyone yelling about those poor people
My point was the the African American of today would be living in that enviroment If it had not been for the forefathers sacrifice as slaves shipped to the America's.
Have you investigated to see if the descendants of today of the slaves shipped to other parts of the world are as well off & free.
Think about it. .
Yes I have studied history in Europe where I went to school, World history is required, Even American history which most Americans do not know. ( And I do not mean just 15 mins of it )
Yes I know about separation from ones father as mine was a prisoner of war during WWII for five & half yrs. He was a career man in the Royal Navy. His ship sunk at the start of the war. & we did not know he was alive for 18 months. He was lucky for later in the war the NAZI Germans machine gunned any survivors in the water
Try being a slave separated from your native home and your children sold away.
Did you ever study American history especially the Reconstruction and Jim Crow era.
What a pathetic POS you are.
Why does the justice( Cough ,Cough) system not go after the Biden with the same gusto as they do the Trumps. I have said for years the Biden as VP milked the American citizens every week he was in office. The charges for upgrading Biden's homes security, Charging the taxpayers for his security team to eat in his home. Every Sat Morn that he played golf with Obama. He had a Helicopter pick him up & return him at &20,000.00 a pop. That was an expensive round of golf
Now we find out his whole family have been in bed with the Chinese, Ukraine & only the GOOD LORD knows who else for the almighty dollar
Remember President Trump & the Trumps organization are two different things
I have often wondered, That those both sides of the so called racial issue. Have thought about how If they had not been brought to the USA as slaves then freed. How they would be living if they had stayed on the African continent. It seems to me that in many cases they are still in huts or slums of their cities. That make our so called slums look like palaces. Just curious
Go on the view – Really – what an absolute joke these people are – I can't believe people actually watch that garbage – our legal system has become nothing but a witch hunt and sideshow – and these same people preach against bullying – Those whiny peuks couldn't take 1/100000000th of the bullying they have dished out on the Trump family – Karma will catch up to their children and grandchildren and then it will somehow be an atrocity that another person said something to offend one of their children and they will cry like the babys they are only no one will give 2 cents if they ever gave 1 cents
Barrack Obama will be next in line for SCOTUS. Brilliant!
Sounds to me like Chief Justice John Roberts can’t handle his job. He’s got too much to handle that he can’t hear a 21 state case against voter disenfranchisement through states unconstitutional legislation from the desks of their governors, secretaries of states or AG’s. Disenfranchisement of one American vote, let alone 80 Million votes through state legislated election fraud is a case the Supreme Court should have taken up. Except the Chief Justice is too afraid it might cause riots if the court finds against the four states. Not what SCOTUS is supposed to do, it’s supposed to stand up for the Constitutional rights of every American.
Discussions and reviews of cases between the Chief Justice and Associate Justices are routine.
During the intervening recess period, the Justices study the argued and forthcoming cases and work on their opinions. Each week the Justices must also evaluate approximately 130 petitions seeking review of judgments of state and federal courts to determine which cases are to be granted full review with oral arguments by attorneys.
Hmmmm, I guess today’s report of the justices sitting in a room conferring with the other justices about discussing behind closed doors, the Texas et al case against, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia for voter fraud violations is a fraud for you. Check it out, Roberts is the big scaredy cat about rioting if he decides to hear the Texas case on the voter Fraud in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
"It is Chief Justice Roberts who sets the tone of the SCOTUS. And it was his leadership that decided not to hear the Texas case."
What unadulterated BS. The justices are all free to vote their "interpretation of the law in accordance with the Constitution.
Unfortunately, if all conservative appointed judges decided on the side of the Constitution, we would have a Supreme Court case hearing how 80 million Conservative American voters had their votes disenfranchised today. Unfortunately, the very SCOTUS Justices who were appointed by conservative presidents are sitting on their hands and ignoring their constitutional oath. Notice too, we haven’t heard a word from any of the progressive leaning judges either. It is Chief Justice Roberts who sets the tone of the SCOTUS. And it was his leadership that decided not to hear the Texas case.
Only conservative judges make unbiased opinions and judgements. They follow the constitution, which a judge is supposed too. Not make their own rules and laws. Liberal judges are just activists on the bench, that's all. Soros has done a lot of damage. SMH.
What does anybody think an Obama appointed judge would decide on a Trump case? Anybody think there’s going to be any unbiased judgements, or decisions, coming from a progressive, biased, Obama appointed judge??
Trump actually prefers Newsmax. OAN is good too. Fox News has become "Faux News" since they got rid of Roger Ailes.
"Fox News is extremely anti-Trump."
My, my, how things do change!
Soon you'll be changing news organizations like underwear. Better yet, just switch to Pravda (Trump's choice).
Your second sentence tells me everything wrong with your assertions at the beginning of your treatise: "A new Fox News poll . . . "
Fox News is extremely anti-Trump. As such, I will not be giving it up . . . !
Frank – Give it up already.
A new Fox News poll finds that 42% of voters say history will remember President Donald Trump as one of the worst presidents ever.
An additional 8% say he will be remembered as below average, while 22% say one of the greatest, 16% say above average and 10% say below average.
And that "dream" led to the greatest presidency since Uncle Ronnie . . . !
Living in a country where basically half of its people voted for a xenophobic freak who ordered babies to be snatched from their mothers’ arms and put in cages, four years after all such cruelties were on full display, is not an easy task.
It’s a mistake to convince ourselves that Trump, or Trumpism, is easy to defeat, the truth is, as we are learning again, Trump, in all his incompetence, brutishness, and cruelty, embodies one powerful, ugly, and persistent version of the American dream.
Magnum P.I.? Don't fall for that "reverse mortgage" spiel.
I responded, but P.I. has to approve it. Stay tuned. Trump, MAGA, and KAG great–Biden bad (and corrupt)!
I am my credible source . . . ! Seriously, that is my heartfelt opinion regarding Benghazi Hillary. 'Miff said!
Tsk, tsk! Do you use naughty language? When replying, why not try some solid research with citations from credible sources.
My first response was rejected by P.I. All I will say is that we'd be in much worse shape had we elected Hillary in 2016.
