Former President Donald Trump Makes Big Legal Move In New York AG’s Investigation after testifying just two days after the FBI searched his Florida home he invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid questions in the ongoing investigation led by Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James.
Trump was subpoenaed to testify Wednesday in the ongoing New York AG investigation into the Trump family and the Trump Organization’s business practices, according to Just the News. “Upon the advice of my attorney and, for all of the reasons set forth above, I have declined to answer questions regarding the rights and privileges afforded to all citizens under the United States Constitution,” he wrote in a statement on Truth Social.
A bit later in the statement, Trump went on to provide a summary of everything James has attacked him in various ways over the past few years. “James developed a political platform and made a career maliciously attacking me and my company even before she was elected in or I reviewed any of the millions of pages of documents we voluntarily produced,” he wrote.
Financial deals that the attorney general believes may be fraudulent include properties such as Trump’s Seven Springs estate at 40 Wall Street in West Chester, New York, and the residence he lives in at Trump Tower in New York City. Letitia James’ attorney, Kevin Wallace, went on to tell the court that the office “is likely to have to take some form of legal action in the near future.”
Ever since this whole mess began, the former President has consistently said he did nothing wrong and called the attacks against him a “witch hunt.” And that’s exactly what it was. There’s no real reason for that other than to try and find anything that will keep him from being Commander-in-Chief should he run in 2024. It’s all politically motivated.
The radical left is afraid of Trump and his supporters. They know that if people consistently apply their political beliefs in the 2024 elections, there will be no chance of a victory for the left. According to a Fox News story: Donald Trump is the latest family member to be deposed. Ivanka Trump and Don Jr. were deposed earlier this month.
All three testimonies were scheduled to take place over the past month, but Trump’s attorneys had requested a delay in light of the July 14 death of Trump’s first wife and mother of his three eldest children, Ivana Trump. The statements were scheduled for the following day.
This was yet another delay after a months-long battle in the courts to stall and avoid the AG’s office’s efforts to interrogate them.
Trump is currently spending his summer days between his Bedminster golf estate and Trump Tower. Trump arrived back in New York City on Tuesday night. A lawyer for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The AG’s office did not confirm nor deny the information and declined to comment.
