    Default NY AG closing in on Trump and his lawyers just quit

    Donald Trump returned to private life on Wednesday after spending four years as America's president -- and is now dealing with legal crises that are catching up to him.

    The law firm that handled the tax affairs of Donald Trump and his company during his presidency said it would stop representing him and his business," The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. "The firm, Morgan Lewis & Bockius, is currently wrangling with the New York attorney general's office over documents related to its work for the former president's business, the Trump Organization. Led by Democratic Attorney General Letitia James, the office is conducting a civil-fraud probe into Mr. Trump's financial dealings."

    "Morgan Lewis joins other firms that have distanced themselves from Mr. Trump in recent days. After the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Seyfarth Shaw LLP said it had notified the Trump Organization it would no longer represent the company," the newspaper reported.

    The New York attorney general's office in August . During the deposition, Ms. Dillon said she had no idea how many times she met with Mr. Trump's son Eric Trump about Seven Springs, a Trump estate in New York's Westchester County that is part of the attorney general's probe, the letter said. a judge to order Morgan Lewis and Ms. Dillon to comply with subpoenas that were part of its civil-fraud probe. The attorney general's office argued the firm had refused to hand over substantive communications between Ms. Dillon and key Trump Organization employees. Morgan Lewis said the documents in question were protected by attorney-client privilege," the newspaper reported.

Morgan Lewis said the documents in question were protected by attorney-client privilege.

    The newspaper published a statement from the law firm."We have had a limited representation of the Trump Organization and Donald Trump in tax-related matters," a Morgan Lewis spokesperson said. "For those matters not already concluded, we are transitioning as appropriate to other counsel."

    James vowed in December to "follow the facts wherever they may lead us" after winning a court victory against the Trump Organization

    Trump will have trouble getting any lawyer to defend him.

    "... Trump and his businesses are under significant investigative scrutiny on both a federal and state level. The president is said to be particularly concerned about two New York fraud investigations into the Trump Organization's financial activities. One is a civil probe being conducted by the New York attorney general's office and the other is a criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney's office.

    Potential charges that come from either inquiry would not be covered under the scope of a pardon, which only applies to federal crimes.

    The attorneys general of Maryland and Washington, DC, have also filed a federal lawsuit accusing the president of violating the Constitution's emoluments clause by personally profiting off foreign officials and diplomats who stayed at Trump properties while he was president.

    Trump may also come under scrutiny for actions that were outlined in the special counsel Robert Mueller's final report on the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US election. The 448-page report detailed at least 11 instances in which prosecutors said Trump attempted to obstruct justice, and Mueller testified to Congress in 2019 that the president could be indicted for that crime after leaving office.

    The Federal Election Commission is also investigating a complaint accusing the Trump campaign of having "disguised" and laundered nearly $170 million worth of spending.

    The president was also named as an unindicted co-conspirator,"Individual-1," in the Southern District of New York's case against his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

    Cohen pleaded guilty in August 2018 to five counts of tax evasion, one count of bank fraud, one count of making an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an illegal campaign finance contribution on October 27, 2016.

    The final two charges were related to hush money payments made to the adult-film star Stormy Daniels and the former Playboy model Karen McDougal before the 2016 election. Both women had threatened to go public with details of extramarital affairs they said they had with Trump in the 2000s.

    Cohen said he facilitated a $130,000 payment to Daniels "at the direction of the candidate" and with the "purpose of influencing the election," which violates campaign finance law by exceeding the maximum contribution of $2,800 that a person can give to a candidate for federal office.

    Cohen also admitted to orchestrating an illegal $150,000 payment from the Trump campaign to American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Inquirer, to purchase the rights to McDougal's story but never publish it, a practice known as "catch-and-kill."

    Under the Biden administration, the Internal Revenue Service may hand over Trump's long-sought-after federal tax returns to congressional investigators, the contents of which could further legally jeopardize Trump. The New York attorney general's office and the Manhattan District Attorney's office are also both investigating whether some tax write-offs that benefited Ivanka Trump broke the law.

    And as Trump leaves office himself and sees his successor inaugurated, a legal cloud still hangs over the finances behind his own inauguration.

    In addition to an active SDNY investigation into the Trump inaugural committee's spending and whether the group traded donations for political access, Karl Racine, the attorney general for Washington, DC, filed a lawsuit in July accusing Trump of using the inaugural committee as a vehicle to enrich his family and business interests by accepting above-market rates from the Trump International Hotel in DC."
