Letitia James, New York Attorney General, says a contempt order is necessary because of Trump's "intransigence".

Trump failed a March 31 court-ordered deadline to turn over subpoenaed materials. James then asked the judge in charge of her investigation to issue a contempt notice and fine Trump $10,000 each day until he comply with the subpoena.

James' attorneys wrote that the Court should end Mr. Trump’s intransigence, subterfuge and intransigence in Friday night's filing.

Trump attorney Alina habba stated Tuesday that Trump may have the documents sought by his eponymous business, but not Trump himself.

Friday's statement by the attorney general stated that Trump can not "pass off" his responsibility for complying to the subpoena.

Investigators have identified three Trump mobile devices, one personal, and one company-issued, but they have not received subpoenaed information from them. "

Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump were both ordered to appear on February 17. They also had to comply with a subpoena requesting documents and information. "

Trump was ordered by the judge to comply with the demand to obtain documents and information by March 3. Later, the deadline was extended to March 31 by the judge -- which was agreed upon by both parties according to court documents.

James' office stated in a February press release, that it had collected evidence that "Donald J. Trump and his Organization used fraudulent financial statements to gain economic benefit." "The probe began with the question of whether Trump Organization inflated the assets' valuations while seeking loans or insurance coverage. Then, the investigation moved on to the issue of deflating their value to reduce tax liability.

Trump and his company repeatedly denied any allegations of wrongdoing. Habba stated Tuesday that the contempt request was "utterly devoid of merit." "

Monday's hearing is set for the contempt motion.
