NY AG  files fraud suit against former president Donald Trump

The New York Attorney General’s Office has filed a fraud suit against former president Donald Trump and his children Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka.

The suit alleges more than 200 instances of fraud over the course of a decade to obtain more favorable loan terms and tax benefits.

The AG’s office is referring some of the alleged conduct uncovered in the investigation to federal prosecutors and the IRS.  

Lawyers for the Trump family say the suit is entirely political.
