New York Attorney General Letitia James will make a “headline announcement” within hours

New York Attorney General Letitia James said her office is expected to make a “headline announcement” within hours.

The state’s highest attorney has turned down at least one settlement offer from former President Donald Trump, which her office has been investigating for three years.

However, she did not give any details as to why she called a press conference at 10.30am EST, to which the press was invited.

In the course of the investigation into the Trump Organization, Ms James alleged that Trump inflated or devalued his real estate through paperwork to secure hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks or bank loans.

Ms James said in previous court testimony that her office found evidence of possible fraud, ABC News reports.

Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and says the investigation into his finances and business is a political “witch hunt.”

Last month, Trump repeatedly invoked the Fifth Amendment to the constitution during a six-hour deposition in New York City.

Sources told ABC News that the only question he answered was the former president’s question about his own name, as well as citing the Fifth Amendment, which protects Americans from self-incrimination.

During his testimony, Trump released a statement that read: “On the advice of my attorney … I refused to answer questions about the rights and privileges granted to every citizen under the US Constitution.”

This is not the only investigation that Mr. Trump is currently involved in, as federal agents raided his home in Mar-a-Lago in August and confiscated boxes of top-secret documents.

Trump claimed that the documents were planted on his estate or that he actually declassified them. The status of the documents is now in the hands of a special master for inspection.
