NPR – A judge in New York found former President Donald Trump in contempt of court for failing to produce documents pursuant to a subpoena from state Attorney General Letitia James. James is conducting a civil probe of the Trump Organization’s business practices.

Judge Arthur Engoron imposed a penalty of $10,000 a day until Trump fully complies.

James opened her civil probe of Trump business practices in 2019, after former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen testified before Congress that Donald Trump was a “con man” who would routinely inflate or deflate the reported value of his assets to further his business interests.
