Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Refuse to Comply With NY AG’s Subpoena in Trump Org Investigation

The New York Attorney General’s office has subpoenaed two of Donald Trump’s adult children to appear to testify as part of its civil investigation into whether the Trump Organization manipulated the values of its properties. The disclosure was made public Monday in a court filing where the judge set a briefing schedule to handle a dispute that has arisen over the subpoenas for Trump’s testimony as well as Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Both have already responded to say they will not comply.

The AG’s office had previously subpoenaed Trump for testimony and set a deadline of January 7th, but Trump’s lawyers have said they would move to quash the subpoena.

The subpoenas for the testimony of Trump’s children were issued amid an ongoing criminal investigation into the Trump Organization and its executives and whether they inflated the value of some of its assets. Prosecutors with the Manhattan district attorney’s office have interviewed additional witnesses in that case in recent weeks. The New York attorney general’s office joined with the district attorney as part of the criminal investigation earlier this year.

Filed jointly by New York Attorney General Letitia James and an attorney for the Trump Organization, the subpoena says Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump will now be named as respondents in James’ ongoing inquiry, which parallels a criminal investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Eric Trump, an executive vice president at the company, was previously subpoenaed and provided his testimony in late 2020.
