Attorney General James Responds to Trump’s Attempts to Overturn a Court Order Requiring Him to Testify in Civil Investigation
NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement in response to the brief filed today by Donald J. Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump to appeal a decision that they must all appear for sworn testimony in compliance with subpoenas from the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) as part of its ongoing civil investigation into Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization’s financial dealings:
“Donald J. Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump were ordered by a judge to comply with our investigation into Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization’s financial dealings. Despite continuous efforts to impede this investigation, no one can stop our pursuit of justice, no matter how powerful they are. We will continue to follow the facts without fear or favor.”
In February, the Honorable Arthur Engoron of the New York County State Supreme Court ruled that Donald J. Trump and his children must all appear for sworn testimony, and Donald J. Trump must produce additional documents in compliance with subpoenas from OAG.
