Former President Trump’s eldest son and daughter have refused to comply with New York State Attorney General’s subpoenas while conducting a civil investigation into the valuation of their assets by the family-owned real estate company.
“A dispute has arisen between the public prosecutor’s office and the individual parties to Trump over the subpoenas,” said a document published on Monday.
The document, jointly filed by New York attorney general Letitia James and a Trump Organization attorney, states that Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump are now named as suspects in James’ ongoing investigation, which parallels a criminal investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump will file motions to quash the subpoenas as soon as Monday, the filing indicated.
The former president and his company have denied the wrongdoing and attacked the investigation as a policy.
The previous criminal investigations have led to indictments. Prosecutors said the company paid Weisselberg’s rent, living expenses, private school fees and car leasing without properly filing its tax return.
