Originally reported October 5,2021

In August, 2020, Attorney General Letitia James filed a motion to compel the Trump Organization to provide the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) with documents and testimony from multiple witnesses, including Eric Trump, who is alleged to be personally involved in some of the financial transactions currently under investigation.

On September 23, 2020, the Honorable Arthur Engoron of the New York County State Supreme Court ordered Trump Organization Executive Vice President Eric Trump, to hand over documents withheld by the Trump Organization, which includes financial records related to the Seven Springs Estate in Westchester County, New York.

Justice Engoron also ruled that Eric Trump could no longer delay an interview with the OAG, nor can he delay his testimony for six or more months, as he had originally requested due to his work on his father’s presidential campaign.

“Justice and the rule of law prevailed today,” said Attorney General James in a video press conference. “We will immediately move to ensure that Donald Trump and the Trump Organization comply with the court’s order and submit financial records related to our investigation. Further, Eric Trump will no longer be able to delay his interview and will be sitting down with investigators in my office no later than October 7. To be clear, no entity or individual is allowed to dictate how or when our investigation will proceed or set the parameters of a lawful investigation. The court’s order today makes clear that no one is above the law, not even an organization or an individual with the name Trump.”

Attorney General James opened the investigation into the Trump Organization in 2019 after testimony from Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, testified before Congress that Trump’s annual financial statements inflated the values of his assets to obtain favorable terms for loans and insurance, while simultaneously deflating his earnings and assets for tax purposes. President Trump is currently hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center for treatment for a Covid-19 diagnosis. Watch the official press release below.
