The New York Attorney General’s office confirmed it has subpoenaed former President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump with regard to an investigation of the Trump Organization.
Attorney General Letitia James’s (D) office said that it is seeking to interview the aforementioned Trumps under oath, according to The Hill.
The NY AG has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump as part of an investigation into the Trump Org’s dealings. Trump previously got a subpoena.

“As her investigation into financial dealing of the Trump Organization continues, Attorney General James is seeking interviews under oath of Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump,” a spokesperson told The Hill.
“Despite numerous attempts to delay our investigation by the Trump Organization, we are confident that our questions will be answered and the truth will be uncovered because no one is above the law,” the spokesperson added.

Last month, Trump sued AG James to block the civil probe, arguing that the investigation is politically motivated.
“The investigations commenced by James are in no way connected to legitimate law enforcement goals, but rather, are merely a thinly-veiled effort to publicly malign Trump and his associates,” the complaint reads.
“Her mission is guided solely by political animus and a desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen who she views as a political opponent,” his lawsuit added.

Trump said the lawsuit is not because of delay, but because he has nothing to hide.
The ongoing lawsuits will likely extend long past the Jan. 7 due date of the subpoena as Trump and his opponents battle into 2022 over both business and politics.
