Bryan Sullivan Speaks to Newsweek About Possible Appeal Arguments in Former President Donald Trump’s Fraud Case

Bryan Sullivan recently spoke to Newsweek about the arguments former president Donald Trump will likely use to appeal the ruling in the fraud case brought against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James in 2022. James sued Trump, his two adult sons, the Trump Organization, and two firm executives. Judge Arthur Engoron oversaw the trial and determined that Trump inflated his assets in order to receive more favorable business loans.

Bryan explained to Newsweek that Trump’s strongest argument will likely be that no individuals suffered a loss as a result of his inflated assets, which sources close to his legal team have stated will be part of his appeal.

“While the New York attorney general would argue that the victims were the banks who would have made more money off of interest, those banks are sophisticated entities who could have done their own analysis on the large deals they were doing with Trump,” Bryan tells Newsweek.
