“Eric Trump then invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in response to more than 500 questions over six hours,” reads the presentation of an October 5, 2020 interview with former President Donald Trump’s son.

Weisselberg reportedly did so during an interview on September 24, 2020: “After answering a series of preliminary questions, Allen Weisselberg invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination to more than 500 questions over five and a half hours.” .

The office of New York Attorney General Letitia James argues that these cases show that the men were aware of possible criminal liability in the case.

Weisselberg and the Trump Organization were indicted in another investigation, led by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, on July 1, 2021, on charges including conspiracy, grand theft, criminal tax fraud and falsifying business records.

In its motion to compel On Tuesday, James argued that Donald Trump and two of his children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, should be forced to testify under oath as part of his office’s ongoing civil investigation into Trump Organization business dealings.

James’s motion seeks an injunction to enforce the witness subpoenas issued to the three Trumps, as well as the production of documents that have been withheld since they were subpoenaed in 2019.

“For more than two years, the Trump Organization has used delaying tactics and litigation in an attempt to thwart a legitimate investigation into its financial dealings,” James said in a statement.

She said her investigation had uncovered “significant evidence” suggesting that Donald Trump and company “falsely and fraudulently valued multiple assets and misrepresented those values ​​to financial institutions for financial gain.”

eric trump lashed out to James for the motion, tweeting: “Letitia, you can’t escape your own words. This is all a showcase of his abuse of office and ethical misconduct (for which we are prosecuting him) and points to more than a public relations move to revive a political career after his disaster as governor.”

Donald Trump filed a lawsuit last month to try to stop the investigation, accusing James of being politically motivated to “harass” him and his family.
