Trump has ordered the judge to pay a $110,000 fine as the judge lifts the contempt order against him.


Donald Trump was ordered to face a $110,000 fine after a judge lifted a contempt order issued under a dispute over the Trump Organization’s financial documents.

New York Judge Arthur Engoron lifted the order assuming several requirements would be met.

He said the former president should write an affidavit describing the Trump organization’s document preservation and destruction policy, including how the Post-it was used and completing a review of the last five of the 17 boxes linked to President Trump. Trump was found in a storage facility on the premises of the organization.

The judge said all conditions must be met before May 20.

“I want to pay the fine. The fine is now $110,000,” the judge told Trump’s lawyer, adding that the contempt sentence could be restored and applied retroactively if Trump did not comply.

A judge stopped accumulating fines on Friday as Trump’s lawyers filed additional affidavits, including those of Trump himself, in connection with an attempt to comply with the New York Attorney General’s subpoena for record.

The New York State Attorney General’s Office took action in December last year to humiliate Trump for failing to comply with a subpoena.
