Trump to be questioned under oath in New York investigation

Former United States President Donald Trump has said he will testify under oath as part of a New York State civil investigation into the business dealings of his company, the Trump Organization.

 

In a post on his social media site, Truth Social, Trump said he would be meeting on Wednesday with New York Attorney General Letitia James, whose office has been conducting a probe focusing on whether the former Republican president and his company misstated the value of assets, including golf courses and skyscrapers, to mislead lenders and tax authorities. James’s office had subpoenaed Trump in January.

 

The testimony comes as Trump’s myriad legal woes have again been cast into the spotlight after FBI agents, in an extraordinary move, searched the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, reportedly as part of an unrelated federal probe into whether he took classified records when he left the White House in early 2021. Observers say the move could signal the US Department of Justice is moving towards criminal charges against the president.

 

“In New York City tonight. Seeing racist NYS Attorney General tomorrow, for a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in US history!” Trump wrote on Tuesday, invoking his oft-repeated claims about James, who is Black.
