    It is over for Trump in New York.

    The low life Criminal had an opportunity to plea a deal now Trump Org will be ceased shut down and liquidated …. he is an embarrassment to the mobsters in New York… They claim no responsibility for his incompetence

    NYAG Letitia James demanded $370 million in fines against Trump and his companies as well as a lifetime ban on the low life Criminal and two former company executives from the state’s real estate industry.

    The proposed fines include $168 million in interest allegedly saved through fraud; $152 million from the sale of the Old Post Office building in Washington, D.C., the site of one of Trump’s former hotels; $60 million through the transfer of the contract for Trump’s former Ferry Point golf course in the Bronx borough of New York; and $2.5 million from severance agreements for former Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Howard Weisselberg and ex-Trump Organization controller Jeff McConney.

    After Kise did not meet the deadline to respond, Engoron denied the request for a delay in the closing arguments. Kise replied that Trump would still attend closing arguments and planned to speak; Engoron then reiterated that Trump could speak only if he agreed to the conditions he outlined, which Kise replied was “very unfair.”

    At that point, Engoron seemed to have had enough: “Take it or leave it. Now or never,” he told Kise. Engoron gave Kise seven minutes to agree to his terms, but Kise did not respond, prompting Engoron to say he wouldn’t allow Trump to testify.

    James made brief remarks this evening after the trial concluded, saying she was unbothered by Trump’s personal attacks and that the case was only about the law.

    “This case has never been about politics or personal vendetta or about name-calling. This case is about the facts and the law, and Mr. Trump violated the law,” James said.

    She added that her office had produced evidence showing the scope of the illegality and fraud that she said enriched Trump and his family.
