New York AG Sues Donald Trump, of His Children for Business Fraud
The New York Attorney General’s office has filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump, his children Ivanka and Don Jr., and the Trump Organization, alleging “persistent illegal conduct” in the operation of the Trump family’s business empire.
The suit, filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, alleges that the Trump Organization engaged in “a pattern of persistent illegal conduct” in the operation of its business, which “repeatedly violated” state and federal laws. The suit alleges that the Trump Organization used false and misleading statements to lure investors into a failed business venture, and then misused funds from those investors to pay back other investors and to enrich the Trumps.
The suit seeks to dissolve the Trump Organization and bar Donald Trump and his children from serving as officers or directors of any New York-based company. It also seeks restitution for investors, and a civil penalty of up to $2.8 million.
Trump Family Businesses Accused of Misusing Investors’ Money
According to the New York AG, Donald Trump and his 3 children have been accused of business fraud. They allegedly misused investors’ money to fund their lavish lifestyles. The AG is seeking to dissolve the Trump Organization and recover the money that was allegedly stolen.
This is not the first time the Trump family has been accused of fraud. In the past, Donald Trump has been accused of fraudulently misleading people about his involvement in business ventures. This latest accusation, however, is the first time that Trump and his children have been accused of actually misusing investors’ money.
If the Trump family is found guilty of business fraud, they could be forced to give up their control of the Trump Organization and pay back the money that was allegedly stolen. This would be a huge blow to the Trump family’s business empire.
