NY Attorney General Letitia James has rejected Trump's settlement offer and the stage is now set for the former president and at least one of his kids to be sued for fraud.
Eric Trump commented on Monday about the dangers of "political prosecutions," while he is under investigation.
No matter what room he’s in, Donald Trump always assumes he the smart person in it. When he was in the White House he frequently ignored the ideas of more experienced and educated advisers.
And whether he realizes it or not, Trump is now in the biggest legal fight of his life. Michael Cohen, a long-time lawyer for the ex-president, says he will take control of his defense and he has no idea what he’s doing.

Rudy Giuliani was, at one point, one of the most famous lawyers in the world. As the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, he prosecuted some of the country’s best known mobsters.
For months now, both Georgia and New York state were ramping up cases against Donald Trump. Many wondered where that cases were going and how long it would be before Trump ended up in court.
And now, at least in New York, it seems that the answer is soon. Last week, a spokesperson from New York revealed that the case had gone from civil to criminal. And today, it was reported that Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance had convened a grand jury.
Rudy Giuliani spent the last year humiliating himself. First, there was an embarrassing cameo in the latest Borat film. Then the unhinged election press conferences, one in front of a Pennsylvania sex shop. The year culminated with the FBI raiding his Manhattan apartment.
When Donald Trump left the White House, he went right down to Florida and hasn’t really left Mar-a-Lago. Luckily for Trump the state is run by Ron DeSantis, a big booster of the former president.
Bill DiBlasio has been the Mayor of New York City since . He has not been a popular leader. In fact, his current approval rating in the wildly liberal city stands at 42%.
The Mayor will be leaving office next year and there will be a 2021 election to determine his successor. There are over 20 candidate gunning for the spot, but right now, Andrew Yang is the heavy favorite.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has sent letters to the Democratic governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan to ascertain whether states violated federal law by ordering nursing homes to accept recovering COVID-19 patients from hospitals, an action that critics say spread the novel coronavirus and possibly contributed to the death toll. DOJ prosecutors say these orders “may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents.”
According to Public Policy Polling, which surveyed 1,029 New York voters, 60 percent said they were “ashamed” President Donald Trump was from the state. 30 percent said they were “proud.” Trump lost New York by 20 points in 2016; the latest information puts him on a track for a similar loss.
