Why Former President Trump Is Facing Multi-Million Dollar Damages

Attorney General of NY Letitia James has declared former President Donald Trump must pay more than $350 million in damages and will be barred from doing business in New York for three years, after falsely inflating his net worth to those he did business with. Now, the attorney general is facing questions from both legal professionals and the public — as many ask how she reached this hefty decision and whether the severity of the punishment matches the crime.

George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley shares the unique aspects of the case, how A.G. James arrived at these terms, and whether he believes the former President’s legal defense could have done anything differently.
