WHOA: Trump and Children ORDERED to Testify

While Donald Trump has made a career out of skirting personal and political danger, the sheer level of depravity that his enemies have mustered over the course of the last few years has made this streak unlikely to continue.

Everyone wants a piece of Trump, and it was only a matter of time before someone got what they wanted.

This week, New York State authorities took a fairly heavy step in that direction.

Former President Donald Trump must answer questions under oath in New York state’s civil investigation into his business practices, a judge ruled Thursday.

Judge Arthur Engoron ordered Trump and his two eldest children, Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., to comply with subpoenas issued in December by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Trump and his two children must sit for depositions within 21 days, Engoron said following a two-hour hearing with lawyers for the Trumps and James’ office.

There was no getting around the ruling, it seemed.

“In the final analysis, a State Attorney General commences investigating a business entity, uncovers copious evidence of possible financial fraud, and wants to question, under oath, several of the entities’ principals, including its namesake. She has the clear right to do so.” Engoron wrote in his decision.

The news is sure to anger the former President, who has long been one of his children’s fiercest defenders.
