In addition to the Jan. 6 hearings currently playing out on live television, Donald Trump still faces legal trouble in Georgia for trying to influence the secretary of state to overturn the election for him and in New York, where Attorney General Letitia James is investigating him for tax and bank fraud. It’s hard to keep up with the extent of the grift, but Trump has reached every extent that could be reached.
New York’s highest court rejected former President Donald Trump’s last-ditch effort to avoid testifying in the state attorney general’s civil investigation into his business practices, clearing the way for his deposition next month. https://t.co/YpsDMg99Hf

A New York court heard today a case in which Trump’s lawyers tried to appeal a ruling by another New York judge that Trump and two of his children, Ivanka and Donald, Jr., will have to sit for depositions in the case led by AG James. Considering Trump’s absolutely inability to speak the truth, the deposition may lead him into more trouble when he spins some false narrative that’s easily debunked.
According to the Associated Press:
‘The state’s Court of Appeals said there was no “substantial constitutional question” that would warrant its intervention in the matter following an intermediate appellate court’s ruling last month enforcing a subpoena for Trump’s testimony. The court also dismissed a motion by Trump’s lawyers to stay the subpoenas, saying that doing so would be “academic,” since it wasn’t taking up the former president’s appeal in the first place.’
Twitter had a big response to the news, with most happy to see him potentially and finally faces some consequences for his actions. The rest are convinced Trump will skate free of all his current legal troubles. Read some of their comments below:
