Donald Trump really is being targeted from all angles these days, after a great many of his political and societal opponents believed that time outside of the White House would see him vulnerable to litigious attack.
One such adversary is New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is currently attempting to frame a case around The Don and the Trump Organization, having already sued the group for alleged tax fraud.
Now, just days after Trump started a new company, James is already targeting it.
Attorney General Tish James asked a state court Thursday to freeze the Trump Organization’s New York assets and install an independent monitor in her civil suit targeting the former president and his real estate business.
James alleged last month a years-long scheme to fraudulently overvalue the Trump Organization’s portfolio by billions of dollars. And on Thursday, she warned the state Supreme Court that Trump might be shifting his holdings outside of New York — and the reach of its courts.
Trump’s new company name wasn’t very subtle, however.
In the new court papers, James says Trump incorporated a new “Trump Organization LLC” in Delaware on Sept. 15, then registered the company with New York as “Trump Organization II LLC” on the day her lawsuit was filed on Sept. 21.
James has suggested in her aforementioned lawsuit that Trump and his associates overvalued their assets and properties to create lessened tax liabilities – an allegation that Trump has denied.
