A New York Supreme Court Judge has ordered that Eric Trump must testify before in the New York Attorney General’s probe into Trump’s company.
This testimony will happen before the election as the judge specified that the testimony will come before November 7th.
According to CNBC:
Eric Trump must comply with a subpoena for his testimony in a New York investigation into his family business before the presidential election, a judge on Wednesday ordered.
Lawyers for Eric Trump had previously said that he was willing to be deposed as part of the New York attorney general’s probe of the Trump Organization, but only after the Nov. 3 contest between his father, President Donald Trump, and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The order from New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron came after attorneys for the state AG’s office argued that Eric Trump has no right to delay a subpoena for his testimony as part of an ongoing investigation.
“We simply can’t delay compliance for another two months,” one of those attorneys, Matthew Colangelo, said during a video conference before Engoron earlier Wednesday.
James’ investigation is looking into whether Trump’s company inflated real estate values on financial statements in order to get loans, tax benefits, and economic benefits.
