Two company executives, Allen Weisselberg and Jeffrey McConney are also named in the suit, according to The Associated Press. The litigation sheds some light on the image of wealth that Trump has projected for decades.

He was known first as a real estate developer, then as the star of reality shows The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, and finally as president. James, who is a Democrat, announced the details of the lawsuit at a news conference on Wednesday. The case appeared in a court filing Wednesday morning.

James said that Trump “artificially inflated his net worth by billions of dollars.” She added that Trump did this to bolster his image as a billionaire and for business advantage, but that when it came to paying taxes, Trump lowered the value of his properties.

“This investigation revealed that Donald Trump engaged in years of illegal conduct to inflate his net worth, to deceive banks and the people of the great state of New York,” James said at the news conference, according to AP.

“Claiming you have money that you do not have does not amount to the art of the deal. It’s the art of the steal,” added the Attorney General, referring to the title of the book written by Trump. James wants to separate the Trumps from the businesses involved in the alleged fraud.

In addition to assigning a monitor for five years to ensure that the company is correctly reporting and evaluating its value to creditors, insurers and tax authorities. She also wants to replace the current holders of the Trump trust. Filed Under: Donald Trump sued
