A court ruling was issued against the former US president Donald Trump He is required to pay $392,638 to the newspaper.The New York Times“The American newspaper and its journalists as legal expenses after a complaint he filed against them was rejected.
In September 2021, Trump filed a complaint against the New York Times, accusing three journalists working there of preparing a “malicious conspiracy” to obtain tax documents belonging to him. In 2018, they published an investigation for which they won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize.
In May 2023, a judge in the New York State Supreme Court Chamber of Commerce rejected Trump’s complaint, and in a new decision issued yesterday, Friday, the same judge found that the newspaper’s proposed compensation for defense costs was “reasonable,” and ordered Donald Trump to pay the full amount.
The newspaper's investigation dealt with how the Republican billionaire – who asserts that he made himself – achieved his wealth. The investigation stated that Donald Trump had in fact received $413 million from his father over several years, which was partially transferred to him through a fake company, which allowed him to evade paying taxes.
He faces Trump – who seeks to return to… White House– Financial charges against his sons Eric and Donald Jr. of inflating the value of their real estate assets, including skyscrapers, luxury hotels, and golf courses, over a period of years to obtain bank loans and insurance contracts on better terms.
Trump is being tried in other cases, including keeping top-secret documents in his residence, and tampering with the results of the 2020 presidential elections in the state of Georgia, but he denies all the charges against him in the cases in which he is being tried, and considers them an attempt to interfere in the upcoming elections and obstruct his efforts to reach the presidency again. .
