Judge confirms monitor to oversee Trump business empire’s finances

Joanna Walters

Retired federal judge Barbara Jones, who has been monitoring the finances of Donald Trump’s business empire, the Trump Organization, for over a year, has been confirmed to stay in that role for three more years, a judge decided today.

Judge Arthur Engoron, in New York, who presided in Trump’s civil fraud trial in recent months, made the announcement on Thursday. The former US president has so far been unable to raise a massive bond of $454m to cover the fine imposed by Engoron for the fraudulent conduct, ABC news reported.

As part of his judgment, he also announced that a monitor would oversee the Trump Organization and Jones will now have the power to crawl all over the family business empire’s books and also suggest changes to how it operates.

Engoron issued his financial punishment to Trump and co-defendants, including his two adult sons, Don Jr and Eric, last month. The New York attorney general, Letitia James, sued Trump for inflating the value of his assets on government financial statements.
