Trump's Defense Team Focuses on Outside Accountants in Fraud Trial

Donald Trump's lawyers target Mazars USA LLP accountants for their role in preparing financial statements central to the New York Attorney General's civil fraud lawsuit.

In the ongoing civil fraud trial, former President Donald Trump's defense team is scrutinizing the work of the outside accounting firm Mazars USA LLP, arguing that the accountants should hold responsibility for the financial statements in question. Expert testimony challenged the procedures of Mazars, as Trump's legal strategy shifts blame onto the firm that prepared his financial disclosures. The trial's outcome could have significant financial consequences for Trump's business dealings in New York.
