I joined Al Jazeera English’s Inside Story on Thursday to analyze the significance of New York State’s fraud charges, set out in a 220-page filing by Attorney General Letitia James, against Donald Trump.

Former federal prosecutor Melanie Sloan explains the civil case and the possibility that criminal charges may follow.
