This is ridiculous.

Former President Donald Trump is set to testify under oath following the ruling of a state appellate court. The ruling by a panel of four judges was against Trump as they upheld the decision by New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron, who called for two of Trump’s children to comply with the subpoenas sent. Engoron also said that Trump had also failed to turn over the documents he has been requested to send.

Trump had argued that his children cannot be forced to testify as there was a chance that what they said could be used against them in a criminal probe.

“The existence of a criminal investigation does not preclude civil discovery of related facts, at which a party may exercise the privilege against self-incrimination,” the Supreme Court’s Appellate Division ruling said.

This decision can be appealed by the former President and brought to the Court of Appeals.

The investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James has been looking into the business dealings of Trump and the Trump organization. Records provided by the former president appear to have an incorrect valuation of his assets which allowed him to benefit from better loans and more favorable taxation.
