• Letitia James won a $454 million judgment against Trump, his penalty for a decade of fraud.
  • She and Trump are now fighting over her claims that he withheld evidence from her fraud probe.
  • NY law lets James seek additional fines if evidence that she subpoenaed was lost or destroyed.

New York Attorney General Letitia James is not content to rest on her $454 million civil fraud trial victory, even as Trump’s debt to the state keeps snowballing, growing by a punishing $5 million in interest since February.

No, James still has some unfinished Trump business on her calendar.

She is asking hard questions about the $175 million bond that would safeguard at least some of what Trump owes New York while he appeals losing the trial. A hearing on the bond’s financial soundness is set for Monday, April 22.

And James is also intent on holding Trump’s feet to the fire, along with the feet of his lawyers, over something her office has complained about for four years: the withholding of evidence.

    I want to see a photo of Letitia James standing in the doorway of Trump Tower spinning the keys around her finger. And smiling that Cheshire cat smile.
