Eric Trump is not just the president’s son. He’s also a major player in the Trump Organization’s business empire who holds a lot of information about the Trump family’s business dealings.
And after claiming that he told a court would comply with New York Attorney General Letitia James’ subpoena, a new briefing from the NY AG really says otherwise.
In the new briefing, James says that, in fact, Eric Trump and his entire legal team have stated “categorical refusal” to appear.
Unfortunately for them, one of the times they stated their refusal is coming back to haunt them- in the form of an interview with Fox News Radio.
The briefing states: “Eric Trump’s own public statements after this proceeding was commenced confirm that position.”
The briefing said that during the interview, Eric Trump said, “The question is . . . why would you possibly comply?”
NEW: Slamming Eric Trump’s effort to “delay” compliance with her office’s subpoena, @NewYorkStateAG notes in a new brief that — contrary to his claims that he’s willing to appear — the president’s son told Fox News Radio: “The question is… why would you possibly comply.” pic.twitter.com/d4d8GnugEz— Adam Klasfeld (@KlasfeldReports) September 22, 2020
