Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Testify in New York Civil Probe into Trump Organization’s Finances

Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. testified in the New York Attorney General’s civil tax fraud investigation into the Trump Organization.

Ivanka, a former executive at Trump Organization, sat for her behind-closed-doors deposition on Aug. 3, according to sources.

Trump Jr., executive vice president of the company, sat for his deposition last week.

CNN first reported that Ivanka and Trump Jr. sat for depositions.

Neither of former President Donald Trump’s eldest children asserted the Fifth Amendment’s protection against self-incrimination.

It was not immediately clear what questions the Trumps were asked or how they answered.

The two were originally supposed to sit for questioning last month, but the death of their mother Ivana postponed their testimony.

The former president, who called the case politically motivated, is expected to testify later this month.

Trump and his children lost repeated attempts to avoid giving depositions in the case, which stems from allegations that he and his company inflated financial statements.

In a court filing in January, New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office said that it found “significant” evidence that the Trump Organization used fraudulent or misleading asset valuations in its financial statements to obtain loans, insurance, and tax benefits.

Trump has denied wrongdoing.
