The New York attorney general’s office has claimed that it has found “significant” evidence regarding business fraud conducted by Trump in business.
The Attorney General office stated in a court filing that it is asking the state judge to immediately order former president Donald Trump along with his two children to testify in the ongoing investigation.
The attorney general’s office stated in its filing that the investigation“has developed significant additional evidence indicating that the Trump Organization used fraudulent or misleading asset valuations to obtain a host of economic benefits, including loans, insurance coverage, and tax deductions.”
New York attorney general Letitia James has been focusing on the investigation herself in the past year but the latest court filings mark the first time state’s top law agent to level up accusations of wrongdoings in this particular case.
Letitia James stated that as the investigation is ongoing, therefore no charges can be made regarding the fraud claims.
“The Trumps must comply with our lawful subpoenas for documents and testimony because no one in this country can pick and choose if and how the law applies to them,” James said in a statement. “We will not be deterred in our efforts to continue this investigation and ensure that no one is above the law.”
The New York attorney general office is trying their best to force testimony from Donald Trump and his two children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. another son of Trump, Eric Trump has already presented his testimony in the office.
Trump Jr. has been running the family business with his brother Eric while his sister Ivanka Trump was the executive vice president for the development and acquisition till 2016.
“So we won’t tolerate their attempts to evade testifying in this investigation,” the attorney general said. “We will not be deterred in our efforts to continue this investigation, uncover the facts, and pursue justice, no matter how many roadblocks Mr. Trump and his family throw in our way.” The attorneys representing Donald Trump have made no comments on recent court filings. Trump has repeatedly told the press in the past that this investigation against him and his business is politically motivated.
