US Elections are gaining momentum day by day. President Donald Trump’s son Eric is ready to be questioned in association with scrutiny by New York’s attorney general into whether his father and the Trump Organization emphasized the value of assets to obtain loans and tax benefits and if they can wait until after the Nov. 3 election. In a Thursday court filing, lawyers of Eric Trump said, 'his “extreme travel schedule and related unavailability” and “the importance of avoiding any appearance of politicizing the investigatory process” justified the delay.'
They also announced that they had proposed four dates for Eric Trump to be examined in the civil inquiry, beginning on Nov. 19. The lawyers stated, “Eric Trump has been, and continues to be, willing to appear pursuant to a subpoena.” A spokesman for Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement: “While we cannot comment on the particular steps we’re taking on specific litigation, we won’t allow any entity or individual to dictate how our investigation will proceed or allow anyone to evade a lawful subpoena.”
James on Aug. 24 accused the Trump Organization, where Eric Trump is an executive vice president, of opposing commands for her probe into “potential fraud or illegality,” while there had been no determination any laws had been broken. The attorney general said that her inquiry began after Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen told Congress the president’s financial statements had raised some asset values to save money on loans and insurance and deflated other asset values to reduce real estate taxes.
