Trump’s day of reckoning approaches as he loses his appeal to block the New York fraud case

Donald Trump lost an appeal to block New York Attorney General Letitia James’ fraud investigation and now has to testify.

the AP reported on the federal appeals court ruling against Trump:

In a 43-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Brenda Sannes wrote that jurisprudence prohibits federal judges from interfering in state-level investigations, with limited exceptions, and that there was no evidence to support the second Republican’s argument. which James, a Democrat, was proceeding in bad faith due to their divergent political views.

Sannes, who was named in 2014 by former President Barack Obama, a Democrat, said James had a legitimate basis for investigating Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, and that Trump hasn’t proven that recent court proceedings who tried to enforce the subpoenas were “Commented for retaliatory purposes.”

Attorney General James responded to the ruling, Over and over again, the courts have made it clear that Donald J. Trump’s unfounded legal challenges cannot stop our legitimate investigation of his and the Trump Organization’s financial reports. No one in this country can choose how the law applies, and Donald Trump is no exception. As we have always said, we will continue this investigation undeterred. “

Trump’s cause was based on the former president’s concernn that the evidence gathered in the civil case it will be used against him in criminal proceedings, which innocent people never care about.

Those who want justice for Trump’s alleged crimes are frustrated by the slow pace of the process, but the failed former president has built a potentially criminal empire over the decades. It is not easy and it will take time to unravel.

Donald Trump continues to lose in court, and his day of reckoning seems to be approaching, as justice is well on its way to coming.
