Donald Trump refuses to testify in the New York investigation | News | DW

Former US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he refused to testify in a civil investigation into his family’s business practices after he appeared before the New York Attorney General’s office.

“I declined to answer questions about the rights and privileges granted to every citizen under the Constitution of the United States,” Trump said, adding that he had “no choice” but to invoke the Fifth Amendment, which helps protect against self-incrimination.

What is the investigation about?

New York State Attorney General Letitia James is investigating whether the Trump Organization has inflated real estate values.

Trump and his eldest children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, had already lost a legal battle over their objection to appearing to testify. Trump had confirmed on his social media site, Truth Social, on Tuesday that he would be running for the attorney general’s office.

Donald Jr. and Ivanka were scheduled to testify under oath in July, but depositions were postponed after the death of their mother, Ivana, Trump’s first wife.

James said his investigation found significant evidence that the Trump Organization had overstated the value of assets for favorable loans and understated them for tax breaks.

Earlier this year, Trump was held in contempt by a New York judge for failing to turn over documents sought in the investigation.

Trump says he is ‘attacked from all sides’

Trump denied any wrongdoing and called the investigation “the biggest witch hunt in US history.”

“My great company, and I, are under attack from all sides,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social.

The former president has been embroiled in a number of legal challenges since a mob of his supporters attacked the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, as he prepared to leave office.

Last week, a member of the Texas militia was sentenced to seven years in prison for his involvement in the attack.

On Monday, the FBI searched Trump’s Florida Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida as part of a separate federal investigation into whether he unlawfully removed classified White House documents near the end of his term in office. President. Trump and Republican lawmakers criticized the FBI operation as politically motivated.
