45th President Donald Trump’s eldest children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, will reportedly not comply with the subpoenas issued to them by the Democrat-controlled New York Attorney General’s office.
Their refusal to comply with the subpoenas was reportedly put in a court filing from the Trump Organization on Monday.
Democrat New York Attorney General Letitia James, who promised during her 2018 campaign to mercilessly investigate President Trump, subpoenaed his two children on Dec. 1, 2021, demanding they testify about their family’s business dealings.
James is investigating the business dealings of the Trump Organization, accusing the group of inflating the value of their assets to secure bank loans and reduce their tax bill.
Donald Trump Jr. ran the Trump Organization during his father’s presidency, while Ivanka Trump served as a presidential advisor at the White House.
However, James has not revealed any evidence that the Trump Organization took part in any wrongdoing after investigating the group for more than two years.
President Trump called the investigation a “witch hunt,” writing in a statement that James was “nothing but a corrupt official” doing the “dirty work” of her party.
Trump sued James shortly after she subpoenaed him last month, and added that the lawsuit was “guided solely by political animus,” and was just an effort to publicly smear him and his associates.
Eric Trump, the second-oldest son of the 45th president, was already questioned by James in October 2020 after a judge forced him to testify when his lawyers canceled the previously scheduled deposition.
James, a radical Democrat, is also involved in another investigation into the Trump Organization launched by former Manhattan Democrat District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., a staunch critic of Trump.
Vance, whose office declined to prosecute convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein, who reportedly made campaign contributions to the district attorney, charged the Trump Organization and CFO Allen Weisselberg with tax fraud last June.
His successor, Democrat Alvin Bragg, will inherit the probe.
The Trumps have 14 days to deny the subpoena or file for related relief. Afterwards, James has seven days to respond.
President Trump and the organization have denied any wrongdoing.
