Ivanka and Donald Junior Trump called by the New York State Attorney’s Office to testify about the value of their property



The New York State Attorney’s Office handed over subpoenas to the children of Donald Trump, Ivanka and Donald Jr.

The summons were issued as part of an investigation into whether Trump’s business organization was manipulated. Prosecutors called on Trump’s children to testify about the value of their property, the New York Times reported, citing court documents.

The calls came from Attorney General Leticia James’s office on December 1, and Trump received a call-in person, the New York Times reported.

Her investigation is related to some extent, but is not part of the Manhattan District Attorney’s criminal investigation into the Trump organization’s affair, including allegations that the organization exaggerated the value of some real estate to obtain loans and tax breaks. James joined the investigation last May.

Trump’s second son, Eric, was questioned by state prosecutors in October 2020, according to the New York Times.

Former President Trump has sued James with the intention of blocking her civil investigation into the alleged fraud in his company and accused her of serving party politics as a Democrat, Reuters added.
