A tough week for Biden might have been even tougher for Trump

By ,

After starting the week on a high note at a rally in Arizona, former President Donald Trump’s week took a turn for the worse. Investigations into Trump and his companies progressed in Georgia and New York, the Supreme Court ruled against his request, and two more confidants, including his daughter, have been requested to testify before the January 6 Select Committee.

Wednesday, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced her office found evidence that Trump’s company used “fraudulent or misleading” asset valuations to get loans, insurance coverage and tax deductions.

“The misleading practices appear to impact numerous assets reported by Mr. Trump on his Statements of Financial Condition,” James wrote in the court filing. James then gave examples, including alleging that Trump “Misstated objective facts, like the size of Mr. Trump’s Trump Tower penthouse.”

James requested Trump and two of his children, Donald, Junior and Ivanka, testify as part of her investigation. 

Thursday, the district attorney from Fulton County, Georgia sent a letter to a county judge asking for a special grand jury to investigate any ways the 2020 election may have been influenced.

Thursday evening, the Supreme Court ruled against Trump’s claims of executive privilege regarding the January 6th Select Committee investigation. This ruling means the committee now has access to more than 700 documents from that day.

The Select Committee also sent letters to more Trump allies, including his daughter Ivanka, asking them to answer questions before the committee.
