Court rules Donald Trump and children Don Jr. and Ivanka must testify under oath

Donald Trump and his two eldest children must testify under oath in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil investigation into their family real estate empire, a judge ruled on Thursday.

The former president, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. had all been fighting subpoenas from James’ office seeking depositions amid accusations the Trump Organization engaged in fraudulent financial tactics.

New York prosecutors believe the Trump Organization had knowingly misrepresented financial information in order to obtain favorable loans and other deals for over a decade.

‘Once again, the courts have ruled that Donald Trump must comply with our lawful investigation into his financial dealings,’ James said in a statement.

‘We will continue to follow the facts of this case and ensure that no one can evade the law.’
