Trump pays $110,000 in finesDonald Trump has paid $110,000 in fines after being held in contempt of court for being slow to respond to a civil subpoena issued by the attorney general of New York state.

The news on one front in the former president’s many legal battles came shortly after a big development on another, the news that Trump’s former US attorney general, William Barr, is in discussions about testifying in front of the House committee investigating the deadly Capitol attack.

The House investigation of January 6 has produced a criminal contempt charge for one Trump ally, the former White House strategist Steve Bannon.

Letitia James, the New York attorney general, is conducting a civil investigation of Trump’s business affairs.

Last week, a lawyer for James’s office said evidence could support legal action against Trump, his company or both, but a final decision had not been made.
