New York’s attorney general said she will seek sanctions against former President Donald Trump, his three oldest children and their lawyers for making “demonstrably false” denials in response to the state’s $250 million fraud suit.

Attorney General Letitia James said Tuesday in a letter to the court that the Trumps’ formal answer to the state’s suit was peppered with denials of basic facts, including some that the Trumps had previously stated themselves under oath.
