New York Attorney General Puts Don Jr And Ivanka On Notice Over Their Refusal To Comply With Subpoena

Letitia James

New York Attorney General Letitia James has issued a forceful warning for Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump after the pair said they will not comply with a subpoena to testify in the fraud case involving the Trump Organization.

James characterized their defiance as nothing more than a delay tactic and made it clear on Twitter that if the Trump children intend to defy subpoenas in the case, they will be forced to testify.

“Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump are trying to stop my office from interviewing them under oath as part of our investigation into the Trump Organization and Mr. Trump,” James wrote. “Over two years of delay tactics won’t stop our investigation because no one is above the law,” she added.

State investigators are looking into whether former President Donald Trump artificially inflated assets to score loans from banks and then deflated his assets to pay less in taxes.

The investigation began after Washington Post’s journalist David Fahrenthold obtained financial documents that revealed Trump lied about the number of floors in one of his buildings and the acres of the Trump Winery, which raised questions about whether Trump was keeping two sets of financial books to be used for different purposes.
