Trump Ordered to Pay $110K Fine To Avoid Contempt In New York Probe

New York Justice Arthur F. Engoron ruled that a civil contempt order against Donald Trump in the state attorney general’s financial fraud investigation would be lifted if he would pay a $110K fine.

“I’m going to issue a conditional order, so don’t get all excited until we get to the substance of it. The $110,000 should be paid to the attorney general to purge the contempt,” said Engoron. 

According to Engoron, if those conditions are not met by May 20, he would reinstate a $10,000 per-day fine against Trump for contempt again. 

Trump was held in contempt last month for failing to comply with a subpoena issued by Attorney General Letitia James which ordered him to provide documents for his asset valuation. 

Trump’s legal team has not yet commented on Engoron’s ruling.
