Former President Donald Trump's company will have to hire an outside firm to search its documents if it doesn't soon fully comply with subpoenas issued by New York Attorney General Letitia James, a judge warned.

...The Trump Organization has until Sept. 30 to file a report on its efforts to preserve, collect and produce all documents responsive to subpoenas issued by James as part of a civil probe into whether the company manipulated the value of its assets for loans and tax breaks, state court Justice Arthur Engoron said in a Sept. 2 order unsealed on Friday.

If the attorney general isn't satisfied with the Trump Organization's efforts, the Manhattan-based company will have to hire an outside firm to oversee compliance, Engoron ruled. The order was part of a stipulation signed by lawyers for the state and the company in the civil case.

"For more than a year now, the Trump Organization has failed to adequately respond to our subpoenas, hiding behind procedural delays and excuses," the attorney general said in a statement.

James sued in August 2020 to enforce about half a dozen subpoenas, including one issued to the company's former tax attorney. The probe is separate from the recent criminal prosecution of the Trump Organization and its longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, which James's office is pursuing in cooperation with Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance....

The legal system has barked enough at Trump and his criminal organization.

It's time to bite down hard.

Time to "Lock him up!" yet ??

He really needs a taste of his own medicine. Maybe that will finally shut his Lie Hole.

Trump Probe by Vance Has Collected Millions of Internal Records

...In a court filing Friday, the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. disclosed a summary of the material collected so far in the investigation. It didn't provide the actual documents, but included a broad overview of what prosecutors have gathered in their two-year inquiry, as well as some of the witnesses who gave testimony.

While much of the material is already familiar from Vance's indictment of the Trump Organization and its former chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, the filing indicated prosecutors have made at least two agreements with witnesses connected to the Trump Organization to provide information in the case, in exchange for a government promise not to use it against them.

Prosecutors also revealed compliance with subpoenas issued to Jeff McConney, a subordinate to Weisselberg, and Keith Davidson, a California lawyer who was involved in 2016 hush money payments made to silence women claiming to have had affairs with Trump.

Also included in the filing were indications the government has documents it marked as "Martabano." Charles Martabano represented the Trump Organization in its dealings with a property in Westchester County called Seven Springs, which has been a focus of Attorney General Letitia James' parallel inquiry into Trump's tax filings.

The court filing also shows that Vance's office has reviewed records from multiple banks, law firms and accounting firms, internal Trump Organization records, as well as evidence from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and FinCEN, the U.S. Treasury unit that monitors suspicious financial transactions....

The Dotards people will not give up any more without a fight, and even then may have simply destroyed the most incriminating documents, if there are any documents. Remember that the orange fascist learned from Roy Cohn to never write anything down, and to never give a direct order. The only to get the top guy or his kids will be to flip Alan Weisselberg or to prosecute them on tax evasion charges ...

Trump has proven that when you have a fervent cult of 70 million angry violent morons, you have no accountability for anything.

Dems are afraid to use their only chance to stop him before he ends democracy. They'd rather america fall to fascism than be accused of being too partisan.

Repubs know he's a monster but only care about getting re elected and are willing to destroy the country so they can keep their jobs. So they wont help stop him.

Trump has been out of office for 8 months yet he's still one of the only things progressives talk about.

Obsessed.

Or what? Actions not words.
A strongly worded letter and dirty looks from the judge won't do it this time.

Start throwing their Nazi asses in prison!

Nice try. We tried to ignore him and look what happened. We lost 4 years and probably many more decades to clean up after the disaster of Trumpism.

Trump is the leader of the former party called Republicans.

No one is obsessed. Unless it is the former Republicans themselves who appear to be terrified of him.

But regardless ... you are an idiot and a fool to pretend that Trumpy is dead and gone. Or maybe you are trying to deflect so we don't see his next attack on democracy coming?

He is still out there and he has lots of money to spend and he still claims he is still president.

Ignore him at your own peril.

You're the morons who are obsessed with him, which is why he's your cult leader.

He's the greatest threat to the country at the moment. He is controlled by our enemies, hates our allies, tried to replace democracy with fascism, got a half million americans killed, and controls your entire party like a cult.

#12. You are the one who can't keep talking about him. He's out of office and banned from social media yet somehow it's all you talk about. Half the threads on this site are about Trump. It's pathetic.

Although, given that Biden is an unmitigated disaster ... I guess Trump distractions are all progressives have.

If he's so powerless how come he can order the texas governor to do another fake election audit?

What's the position in your party called where a guy is in control of all your party's governors? Blessed leader? Emperor? Master?

Sure you didnt. You just spend every day defending him, attacking his enemies, spreading his propaganda, and supporting the criminal cult that protects him from accountability.
