When Donald Trump testified yesterday in New York Attorney General Letitia James civil probe into the Trump Organization, he reportedly did so for seven to eight hours. This means he didn’t just plead the fifth to every question (which would have gone by very quickly), and indeed gave lengthy answers. Given how incoherently he tends to ramble, this didn’t sound like good news for him.
Now Trump appears to be unwittingly admitting that he did indeed screw up during his testimony. Trump said this on social media today: “My company and overall value is actually far stronger and higher than shown in the so-called Financial Statement.”
Here’s the thing. Donald Trump and the Trump Organization stand accused of falsely understating the values his assets for tax purposes and> falsely overstating the values of his assets for loan applications and insurance claims.
In other words, if Donald Trump’s claims about his testimony are true, it means he’s just confessed during his own deposition. Oops.
It’s not just Letitia James who can use Trump’s confession against him. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg is reportedly still building additional criminal charges against Donald Trump on matters like mortgage, fraud, and insurance fraud. And he can now use Trump’s confession against him.
