Trump Family Refusing To Turn Over Documents In Fraud Case: Report

Donald Trump and his children

Donald Trump, his three eldest children, and the Trump Organization are refusing to turn over documents in a fraud lawsuit, the New York attorney general’s office said in a letter submitted in court last week.

The letter claims that the Trumps are failing to comply with discovery in an ongoing fraud lawsuit against them and the Trump Organization, and cites “an unexplained drop-off in emails for Ivanka Trump” as one of the more significant issues.

The emails turned over from Ivanka dropped from an average of 1,200 emails per month over the first nine months of 2014 to 37 emails per month in 2016, the letter says, according to Forbes.

“Not only have defendants failed to offer any substantive response to this inquiry, but there have been no documents produced by Ms. Trump,” the AG’s office told Judge Arthur Engoron on Friday.

Engoron responded by ordering the Trumps to submit affidavits detailing how they’ve complied with discovery so far. He also set a May 12 deadline for them to turn over the outstanding documents.
