Trump and two of his children subpoenaed to testify in NY AG’s investigation of his businesses

Former President Donald Trump and two of his adult children were subpoenaed to give depositions in the attorney general of New York’s investigation into Trump’s businesses, The Hill reports.

From The Hill:

New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) and lawyers for the former president, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump reached an agreement that will give former President Trump time to appeal if he wishes. The Trumps have until Monday to ask the state’s Court of Appeals to hear the case.

James has been investigating whether former President Trump inflated the Trump Organization’s property values for investors and then deflated them in federal tax documents. She has been pushing him to turn over documents and sit for a deposition for months, but he has has appealed her efforts in court. She first requested that he testify in the civil investigation in December.

A lawsuit filed last month by Trump to block the investigation was thrown out by a federal judge. In the lawsuit, Trump argued that the investigation was politically motivated.
