Donald Trump has just admitted
- under oath - that the Trump Organization lied about his financial assets in New York. This was while he was in court for a trial to decide whether or not he earned $100 million through fraud.
How did he defend himself? He told the judge that what his company did "wasn't important. You've made it important, but it wasn't."This is a shocking confession. Other states where Trump has businesses - including California, Florida, and Illinois - must investigate him for fraud as well! Sign the petition!
In sworn testimony before the court, Trump himself confirmed that the estimates his company provided were not accurate.
He even admitted that the company overvalued his apartment in Trump Tower New York, while undervaluing both his estate at Mar-a-Lago and his Florida golf course.
Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen has also testified
that Trump personally instructed him to falsify numbers and change financial statements in order to artificially inflate his overall net worth.
For the vast majority of his life and career, Trump has managed to skirt his way around the law and avoid consequences
for a whole plethora of misdeeds and out-and-out crimes. But that is not justice - because no one should be able to escape proper accountability.
As New York's Attorney General Letitia James said: "No matter how much money you think you may have, no one is above the law." She's absolutely right.Donald Trump must not be allowed to keep getting away with lies and crimes. Demand that authorities hold Trump accountable for his financial fraud now! Additionally, other U.S. states must investigate him to see if he committed fraudulent actions there as well!
