(TargetLiberty.org) – Following the New York civil trial against former President Donald Trump, New York Attorney General Letitia James stated in a message to Trump that there was no one who was above the law.

In the $250 million lawsuit Trump, his two adult sons, The Trump Organization, and its key executives are accused of having inflated his net worth in order to gain access to more favorable terms from insurance companies and lenders. Trump has maintained that he committed no wrongdoing and has repeatedly claimed in his arguments that if anything the financial statements were understating his property and asset value and net worth.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron had ruled against Trump prior to the start of the trial, finding that Trump had indeed inflated his asset value. Earlier this week both sides rested their case, while the trial is set to resume on January 11 when the two sides will be called to deliver closing arguments.

In a video message on X, formerly known as Twitter, James stated that before the start of the trial, the judge had ruled favorably in the prosecution’s favor and had found that Trump had indeed engaged in financial fraud for years. She added that during the trial the prosecution had shown the full extent of the fraud.

The civil trial has lasted for 11 weeks, and the prosecutors have so far called on a number of witnesses to testify in the case, including co-defendants Donald Trump, and his two sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, as well as Ivanka Trump his eldest daughter. It is expected that Engoron will issue a final ruling in this case early next year. The ruling will determine what the damages owed by Trump in this case will be.
