Former US President Donald Trump and his children Ivanka and Donald Jr. They must testify at the New York Attorney General’s civil investigation into their business dealings. A judge in New York decided on Thursday.
After a video hearing, the judge denied the Trump camp’s request to void Attorney General Letitia James’ subpoenas.
Judge Arthur Engoron then ordered Donald Trump to “testify within 21 days of this decision,” that is, by March 10. The same applies to his children. The 45th President of the United States (2017-2021) can appeal this decision.
According to Attorney General Letitia James, the Trump Organization has released misleading statements to lenders, insurance companies and the IRS about the value of six Trump properties, including golf clubs and iconic buildings such as Trump Tower in New York. Also about the “Trump brand” he could have been lied to.
As part of an investigation opened in 2019, Democratic Attorney General Letitia James announced in January that she had “found significant evidence indicating that Donald Trump and the Trump Organization are using a number of assets incorrectly and fraudulently” to obtain loans and pay lower taxes.
Leticia James welcomed the decision in a statement, “Justice has triumphed.” “No one is above the law.”
Trump’s accountant announced earlier He no longer stands behind the annual accounts which he drafted for the Trump Organization. Mazars has done bookkeeping for Donald Trump Holdings for the past 10 years.
