Letitia James says she's ready to seize Trump's buildings if he can't pay a $354M civil fraud fine.

The New York Attorney General said this in an interview with ABC News.

Four days after a judge ordered former President Donald Trump to pay $354 million in a civil fraud case, New York Attorney General Letitia James told ABC News that she is open to seizing the former president's assets. Well done.

“If he doesn't have the funds to pay the judgment, we will seek to enforce the judgment in court and ask the judge to seize his assets,” James said in an interview with ABC News' Aaron Katerski.

Trump was fined $354.8 million in fines and roughly $100 million in pre-judgment interest on Friday after Judge Arthur Engoron determined he inflated his net worth to get more favorable loan terms.

The former president has denied all wrongdoing and said he will appeal.

James, who said he was “very confident” with the strength of his case on appeal, reiterated that his office would not hesitate to seize one of Trump's buildings — listing the 40 Wall Street skyscraper in Trump's name. A case for concealment of court-ordered mutation.

“We're ready to make sure that New Yorkers are judged, yes, every day I'll get 40 Wall Street,” James said.

James directly countered Trump's charge that there were no victims in the case, instead describing his case as crucial to ensuring that financial markets treat New Yorkers fairly.

“Financial frauds are not victimless crimes. He engaged in fraud of this magnitude. This was not a simple mistake, a small oversight, the variances were grossly exaggerated, and the scale of the fraud was staggering,” James said. “If average New Yorkers go to the bank and submit false documents, the government will throw the book at them, and the same goes for former presidents.”

James also denied Trump's charge that the case would spur a mass exodus of business from New York.

“Last I checked on the cruise. Wall Street looks good,” James said.

Essayist E. Trump lost two civil cases against Jean Carroll, facing Georgia election interference charges from Fulton County District Attorney Fannie Willis, and now losing her case against James, the New York AG concluded the interview with an observation about Trump's legal cases.

“Someone once told me, if you want something done, give it to a woman,” James said.
