US judge holds Trump in contempt of court over fraud investigation

TRT World says a US judge has held former president Donald Trump in contempt of court for failing to turn over documents related to an investigation of possible fraud in the Trump family’s business dealings.

The judge, Arthur Engoron, ruled in favour of New York state attorney general Letitia James who is pursuing a civil probe into the ex-president and the Trump Organization.

James successfully argued that Trump was in violation of a court order to produce the accounting and tax documents to her investigators by March 31.

“In a major victory, a court has ruled in our favour to hold Donald Trump in contempt of court,” she wrote on Twitter.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
