Donald Trump paid a $110,000 fine to lift an order holding him in contempt of court for failing to adequately respond to a New York state subpoena for his records.

The former president paid the fine on Thursday, according to a spokesperson for New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is investigating potentially fraudulent asset valuations at Trump’s sprawling real-estate company.
