Donald Trump’s daughter stayed true to her father and conveniently forgot details of loans and gave misleading answers to questions. Ivanka Trump appeared to mislead the prosecution about her father’s financial dealings. The daughter of the former Republican president stated that she could not recall details of the documents that were in the middle of the fraud case against him. Donald Trump has denied any knowledge about the allegations and has said all along that he was not guilty.
Ivanka Trump was on the stand for five hours on Wednesday. This comes after Donald Trump testified on Monday in a civil fraud case that threatens to unravel his business fortunes and also his political future. He continues to be ahead of the Republican pack in the run-up to the elections.
Ivanka Trump Was Composed In Court As Opposed To Her Father And Brother
Ivanka Trump is the last member of the tainted family to appear at the civil fraud trial. The accusations stem from the lawsuit that Letitia James, the attorney general of New York has brought against Trump and his business empire.
Ivanka Trump seemed composed in court as opposed to the combative stance of her father and brother. She stuck to her ‘do not recall’ line when asked specifically about emails and documents. Donald Trump and his accomplices stand accused of bloating the worth of their assets to get favorable insurance deals and loans. Both his sons, Eric and Donald Jr., are part of the accused.
Judge Arthur Engoron ruled 5 weeks earlier that Donald Trump and his co-defendants were liable for fraud. The judge will decide on the extent of Trump’s punishment. Attorney General James has said that Trump should be fined $250 M and his family permanently striped from running any form of business in the state of New York. While Trump has denied all allegations, his attorneys have argued that the assets have little objective value and that difference in valuation was a common practice in the real estate business.
