Attorney General James Responds to Trump’s Appeal of Contempt Ruling

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement in response to Donald J. Trump’s appeal of a ruling that found him in contempt of court and imposed a $10,000 fee for every day he refuses to comply with subpoenas from the Office of the Attorney General:

“The judge’s order was clear: Donald J. Trump is in contempt of court and must pay $10,000 a day until he complies with our subpoenas. We’ve seen this playbook before, and it has never stopped our investigation of Mr. Trump and his organization. This time is no different.”
