Mick Mulvaney criticized the NY AG's case.
Mulvaney asked who the victim was in the lawsuit.
Trump insisted that he paid back the banks he was accused of defrauding.
Even if New York Attorney General Letitia James is right about the Trump family playing fast and loose with financial information for decades, it's still a victimless crime.

The AG is accusing him of fraud when he borrowed money. Since the deadly siege at the US Capitol, Mulvaney has distanced himself from his former boss.
Who is the victims here?
Mulvaney was the budget director and chief of staff in the Trump White House.
Mulvaney said in August that Trump was the only Republican who could lose to a Democrat. Mulvaney hopes he doesn't run.
The "who's the victim" defense was raised by Trump in response to James' lawsuit, which asked for cash and regulatory relief that could cripple the Trump Organization.
After the lawsuit was dropped, Trump told Sean Hannity that he paid back the people who had sued him.
Trump said that they did not lose money. He stated that the banks made a lot of money. She is defending banks that were paid off.
According to the lawsuit, Trump enriched himself by $250 million by lying to Deutche Bank and other banks about his finances.
She claims that the people of New York are the victims, because the money he borrowed was unavailable to the state's other businesses.
She said that Trump's crimes are not victimless.
It reduces resources available to working people, small businesses and taxpayers when powerful people break the law.
