The state attorney general’s officeis also seeking the appointment of an independent monitor to “oversee compliance, financial reporting, valuations, and disclosures to l enders, insurers, and tax authorities at the Trump Organization” for at least five years.

At a news conference, New York Attorney General Letitia James said Trump “falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to further enrich himself and cheat the system” and “repeatedly and persistently manipulated the value of assets to induce banks to lend money to the Trump Organization.”

The AG claims the Trump Organization’s fraudulent activity allowed it to receive more favorable loan terms, pay lower taxes, and induce insurance companies to give lower premiums.

“Claiming to have money that you do not have does not amount to the art of the deal,” James said, invoking the title of Trump’s 1987 memoir and business-advice book. “It’s the art of the steal.”

James on Wednesday said her office believes the conduct outlined in the civil suit “also violates federal criminal law, including issuing false statements to financial institutions and bank fraud.”

She said state investigators would refer the matter to the US attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York and the Internal Revenue Service.

The suit is the culmination of an aggressive, three-year probe by James, who in 2018 campaigned in part on the promise to investigate and sue Trump and his New York-incorporated real estate and golf resort empire.
