Trump loses bid to stay contempt order in New York AG probe
Former President Trump’s motion to stay a contempt order against him for failing to turn over documents to New York Attorney General Letitia James has been denied, a spokesperson for James' office said Tuesday.
Why it matters: The decision by a state appellate court means "the contempt order stands," James' office wrote. Trump will have to keep paying a $10,000-per-day fine as long as he doesn't turn over the documents amid James' investigation into the former president's business.
Flashback: James has been investigating Trump's business practices for more than two years. Trump was first held in contempt at the end of April.
- The former president has denied any wrongdoing, calling the investigation by James politically motivated.
