Here’s more on the filing by James to get Trump held in contempt:
CBS NEWS – New York Attorney General Letitia James urged a judge Friday to “coerce” former President Donald Trump into complying with a subpoena demanding searches of three of his mobile devices and multiple document storage sites.
Trump failed to meet a court-ordered March 31 deadline to turn over subpoenaed material, claiming he had none of the documents demanded by James’ office as part of its investigation into his company’s financial practices. A week later, James asked the judge overseeing her office’s investigation to issue a contempt citation and fine Trump $10,000 per day until he complied with the subpoena.
“The Court should put an end to Mr. Trump’s intransigence and subterfuge,” attorneys working for James wrote in the Friday evening filing.
Trump attorney Alina Habba said in a filing Tuesday that Trump’s eponymous company may have the documents being sought, but Trump himself does not.
The attorney general said Friday that Trump cannot “pass off” responsibility for complying with the subpoena to his company.
I’m almost certain Trump will appeal this ruling because there’s no way he’s handing this hack AG his mobile devices. I just don’t see it happening.
He’d probably Bleachbit them before doing something like that, heh. Hey, if it’s good enough for Hillary…
