The former president, if he does not appeal, will have to testify as part of his committee’s hearing on tax procedures.

Study time: 2 minutes

U.S.A New York judge on Thursday ruled that Donald Trump and his two children, Donald Trump and Ivanka, must testify at a civil hearing on the tax practices of his panel, led by the New York State Attorney.

After hearing via video conference, the judge rejected the Trump camp’s request to dismiss the testimony made by attorney Letidia James. As a result, Judge Arthur Engoron ordered Donald Trump to “come and testify within 21 days of this decision” by Thursday, March 10th. An order that applies to his children as well. The 45th President of the United States (2017-2021) may appeal against this decision.

As part of the investigation, which began in 2019, Democrat member Letitia James declared in January that “Donald J. Trump and the Trump organization have uncovered significant evidence that they have falsely and fraudulently valued a number of assets”, on the one hand, to obtain credit and, on the other, to pay lower taxes.

“Justice has won,” Letitia immediately welcomed James in a press release, ruling that “no one is above the law.”
