Trump seethes through the start of trial in New York lawsuit accusing him of lying about his wealth

October 03, 2023

“They were lying year after year after year,” Kevin Wallace, a lawyer in James’ office, said as Trump sat at the defense table. James is seeking $250 million in penalties and a ban on Trump doing business in New York. In a recent court filing, James’ office alleged Trump exaggerated his wealth by as much as $3.6 billion. Mazars cut ties with Trump last year after James’ office raised questions about the documents’ reliability. The New York fraud trial is expected to last into December, Engoron said.
