Letitia James says she's prepared to seize Trump's buildings if he can't pay his $354M 'civil fraud' fine | 20 Feb 2024 | Four days after a judge ordered former President Donald Trump to pay $354 million in his "civil fraud" case, New York Attorney General Letitia James told ABC News that she is prepared to seize the former president's assets if he is unable to find the cash to cover the fine. "If he does not have funds to pay off the judgment, then we will seek judgment enforcement mechanisms in court, and we will ask the judge to seize his assets," James said in an interview with ABC News. The former president has denied all wrongdoing and has said he will appeal. Saying that she was "very confident" with the strength of her case on appeal, James reiterated that her office would not hesitate to seize Trump's assets -- mentioning Trump's 40 Wall Street skyscraper by name -- if the former president is unable to find the cash to cover the court-ordered disgorgement.
