Trump and his children will likely be called to testify at his fraud trial in NY

New York Attorney General Letitia James is planning to subpoena Donald Trump and three of his adult children to testify in his civil fraud trial, which is due to begin in Manhattan next week, CNBC reported.

Trump and his company are accused of fraud by overstating the values of his assets to obtain favorable business transactions.

From CNBC:

Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump are among the 28 names on James’ list of witnesses to be called in the case. Trump’s sons, who are also defendants in the case, have run the company since Trump was elected president in 2016.

Also on James’ list are Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer and personal lawyer, and Allen Weisselberg, the former chief financial officer of the Trump Organization.

Defense lawyers in the case submitted their own list of 128 witnesses, which also includes Trump and his two oldest sons.

The two lists were filed Wednesday to Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron.
