New York Attorney General Letitia James appeared to celebrate a court order that former President Donald Trump and two of his children must testify under oath in the state’s civil investigation into his business practices.
“Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump must all comply with this court order and testify before my office within 21 days,” James wrote on Twitter Thursday. “No one is above the law.”
Judge Arthur Engoron ordered the former president and his two eldest children, Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., to comply with James’ subpoenas, issued in December. The Trumps must sit for a deposition within 21 days, the judge said.
He issued the ruling after a two-hour hearing with lawyers for the Trumps and James’ office.
“In the final analysis, a State Attorney General commences investigating a business entity, uncovers copious evidence of possible financial fraud, and wants to question, under oath, several of the entities’ principals, including its namesake. She has the clear right to do so.” Engoron wrote in his decision.
