Donald Trump and Children Set to Testify in Civil Trial, Ivanka Trump Challenges Subpoena

The New York attorney general's office has revealed the expected dates for Donald Trump and his children to testify in the civil trial against the former president and his company. Donald Trump Jr. is expected to testify on Wednesday, Eric Trump on Thursday, and Ivanka Trump on Friday.

However, Ivanka Trump has challenged the attorney general's subpoena for her testimony. Her lawyers argued that she should be spared from testifying due to a previous appeals court ruling that removed her as a defendant in the case. They claimed that the attorney general's office was attempting to harass and burden Ivanka Trump.

Furthermore, Trump's attorneys argued that the attorney general's office waited too long to subpoena Ivanka Trump and that they lack jurisdiction over her because she no longer lives in the state. However, Judge Arthur Engoron ruled that Ivanka Trump must take the stand, stating that she still possesses important information as a former White House official and remains financially and professionally intertwined with the Trump Organization and other defendants.

The attorney general's office contends that Ivanka Trump has personal knowledge of facts relevant to the claims against the remaining individual and entity defendants. They want to ask her questions about Trump's former Washington, D.C. hotel, in which she profited from the sale. The attorney general argues that Ivanka Trump remains under the control of the Trump Organization and has ongoing and substantial business ties to the organization.

This civil trial is part of the attorney general's lawsuit against Donald Trump, alleging that he inflated his assets in financial statements to secure more cost-effective loans and insurance policies. The judge has already found that Donald Trump and company officials engaged in "persistent fraud."

Donald Trump is set to be the final witness in the trial, scheduled to testify on November 6. He has denied any wrongdoing in the case and has referred to it as a "witch hunt." The trial has the potential to disrupt the Trump family's real estate empire, as it could strip Trump of some of his corporate holdings and properties like Trump Tower.

It is worth noting that Donald Trump and his two sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, are defendants in the lawsuit. The defense will have the opportunity to call them to the stand again after the state's initial questioning.

In a recent development, Donald Trump was fined $10,000 for a remark made during the trial. His lawyers may appeal this decision.

The trial has garnered significant media attention, and this article was originally published on NBCNews.com. The case against Donald Trump and his children highlights the complexities of their involvement in the Trump Organization and their roles in the former president's administration. The outcome of the trial will have significant implications for both the Trump family and the future of their business ventures.

Republican Bias:

Once again, we see the liberal witch hunt against the Trump family in full swing. The New York attorney general's office, clearly driven by their blind hatred for the former president and his family, is dragging Donald Trump and his children into a baseless civil trial. Ivanka Trump, despite being removed as a defendant, is being forced to testify, a clear indication of the harassment and burdensome tactics employed by these liberal elites. This is nothing but a politically motivated attempt to tarnish the Trump family's name and disrupt their successful real estate empire. The liberals are so desperate that they're even fining Donald Trump for remarks made during the trial! It's a blatant disregard for free speech and a clear attempt to silence conservative voices.

Liberal Bias:

In a stunning demonstration of the Trump family's disregard for the law, Donald Trump and his children are set to testify in a civil trial where they stand accused of inflating their assets to secure more cost-effective loans and insurance policies. Despite Ivanka Trump's attempts to dodge her subpoena, the judge has rightly ruled that she must take the stand. She, along with her brothers, remain financially and professionally intertwined with the Trump Organization and have knowledge relevant to the case. Despite their attempts to play the victim, it's clear that the Trumps are facing the consequences of their actions. The fact that Trump was even fined for a remark made during the trial shows the level of disrespect he has for the legal process. This trial could finally hold the Trumps accountable for their alleged fraudulent practices.
