Donald Trump Jr. was back in court on Monday to testify for the defense in the civil case against the Trump Organization in New York. After his testimony, he spoke to reporters outside the court detailing the absurdity of the case. "This is about the attorney general going after and prosecuting her political enemies," he said. He also said that he and Eric Trump had nothing to do with the financial statement at the center of the case.

"My brother and I had nothing to do with it, but it doesn't matter because it's a witch hunt," Trump said.



He called Attorney General Letitia James "an overzealous attorney, an overzealous attorney general who would destroy all of New York business by going after transactions where there are no victims." In Trump's view, the biggest issue in this case is the chilling effect it will have on businesses in New York.

"That's what you get from the Democratic Party in New York these days, it seems," he told reporters. "It's a scary precedent. I don't know how anyone could do business in this city with that. Anyone you speak to who's actually in banking, who's actually in real estate understands that, but again, they don't want to put themselves in the crosshair so perhaps they'll be silent. So it's a disgrace that this is happening right now."

"Hopefully one day the people of this great city will realize what's going on," Trump said. "They'll realize the destructive practices here. They'll realize just how insane that is. And they'll be begging for guys like Donald Trump to come back to New York City to reshape the skyline as he's done for decades."

Trump's aunt, Maryanne Trump Barry, passed on Monday morning, and Trump said that he only learned about her passing as he entered the courtroom. 

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
