Uh oh, Eric Trump as in Donald Trump’s middle son, has to go up against New York Attorney General Letitia James. He should be worried, very worried. AG James is in a whole different category of intelligence, tenacity, and pure power than the president’s son.
A judge has just ordered Trump to testify in AG James’ investigation a full month prior to the November election, no later than October 7. He has to submit to a subpoena from the Attorney General as she investigates Donald Trump’s company.
Eric’s attorney said he would willingly be deposed, after the November 3rd presidential election. Interesting caveat:
‘#BREAKING: A judge just ruled that Eric Trump can no longer delay an interview under oath with my office as part of our ongoing investigation into financial dealings of the Trump Organization. Eric Trump must interview with my office by October 7th, 2020.’
James has been investigating to determine whether the Trump Organization headquartered in New York inflated the value of its real estate assets on “annual financial statements that were used to obtain loans, as well as to get economic and tax benefits related to those properties.’
Trump’s attorneys Matthew Colangelo said during a video conference before Engoron:
“Mr. [Eric] Trump is asking for a further two-month delay … to the middle of November in response to a subpoena that was served in may and where the parties agreed in early june on a date for his attendance.’
Judge Arthur Engoron ruled in the Manhattan Supreme Court. He said, according to CNBC:
‘Mr. Trump cites no authority in support of his request, and at any event, neither petitioner nor this court is bound by timelines of the national election.’
Twitter world went wild over Eric’s upcoming problems. Take a look at some of our favorites below:
