Since no one blocks evidence or testimony that might exonerate them, and particularly not Donald Trump, it’s pretty clear that the Trumps and their company, the Trump Organization, are in some serious trouble. When Manhattan Attorney General Letitia James filed a motion to depose the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice and two of his adult children, Ivanka and Eric, Trump fought with all his political, financial, and legal weight against it. On Thursday, a judge decided the fate of that motion.

While Trump has been releasing statements and confessing at his political rallies, saying he absolutely did what he’s accused of, his lawyers have been arguing in court that he did nothing wrong and neither did his children. The younger of his adult sons, Eric Trump, has already been deposed and pleaded the Fifth, something Trump has said only happens when a defendant is guilty.
According Law & Crime:
‘Deposed shortly before the 2020 presidential election, Eric Trump indeed invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination more than 500 times.’
Meanwhile, an investigation into his attempts to influence public officials into overturning a democratic election in Georgia as well as an investigation into his incitement of a mob who attacked the Capitol Building in an attempt to stop the certification of President Joe Biden’s win over Trump continues in Congress by the January 6th Select Committee.
