New York Attorney General Letitia James sues former President Donald Trump over alleged business fraud

NEW YORK -- Former President Donald Trump's legal troubles mounted Wednesday as New York Attorney General Letitia James   sued him for years of alleged financial fraud and

inflating his net worth by billions to "enrich himself and cheat the system."  Three of Trump's adult children were also named in the civil suit, which seeks to remove the

entire family from their roles in the Trump Organization. She accused them of "staggering fraud."  But CBS2's political reporter Marcia Kramer says this could be just the

beginning of the former president's legal woes.  Trump has tried every which way to thwart James' investigation. He hasn't succeeded, and now James says that while she has

brought civil charges, she is forwarding the findings of her three year probe to the Manhattan U.S. Attorney and the IRS for possible criminal prosecution.  "The path of

fraud and deception that was used by Trump and the Trump Organization is astounding," James said. "Claiming money that you do not have does amount to the art of the deal. It's the

art of the steal."  James took a pointed swipe at the former president, using the title of his 1987 book against him as she filed a sweeping civil suit against Trump, the

Trump Organization, and Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump. Two longtime Trump Organization executives, Allen Weisselberg and Jeffrey McConney, are also named in the suit.
