Federal Judge drops contempt of court charge against Donald Trump

Former President Donald Trump is under investigation by the state of New York. This will likely turn out to be just another witch hunt as a federal judge eased up on one procedural violation.

New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron released Trump from a contempt of court charge Wednesday on the condition he paid a fine and provided an explanation of how company documents are kept, the Washington Examiner reported. This charge stemmed from Trump’s legal team failing to turn over subpoenaed documents they claim they don’t have.

“I want the fine paid,” Engoron said at the ruling. “That fine is now $110,000.”

Though Trump’s legal team has turned over several batches of documents, it couldn’t produce the documents requested in that subpoena. The Trump Organization must explain its document storage procedure and search the few remaining boxes of documents, the judge further instructed.

A company retained to search through files has already examined 1,300 boxes of documents to no avail. The Trump Organization filed an amended affidavit Friday further stating it couldn’t produce documents from three mobile devices which are no longer in Trump’s possession.

New York Attorney General Letitia James had initiated the probe based on claims that Trump inflated the value of his assets in order to secure tax breaks and other benefits. In turn, Trump has accused James, a Democrat, of being politically motivated in the investigation.

During his candidacy and well into his presidency, Trump was dogged by false accusations such as the Russia collusion hoax. The former president traced the fake scandal linking his electoral win to the Kremlin to his 2016 Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton whom he is now suing, Reuters reported.

So far, all of this digging and mining for something — anything — to pin on Trump has turned up absolutely nothing. James is just another partisan in a long line of swamp dwellers who have it out for Trump, and her investigation will likely end as fruitless as the rest.

Don’t pay the fine if you are telling the truth because they will use it against you. To trust a Democrat is stupid.
