They argued he was too busy traveling for this dad’s campaign. LOL!

President Donald Trump’s son Eric has until Oct. 7 to speak to New York investigators probing his family’s business practices, a judge ruled Wednesday, rejecting his lawyers’ contention that his “extreme travel schedule” on the campaign trail warranted a delay until after the November election.
State Judge Arthur Engoron said Eric Trump, an executive at the family’s Trump Organization, had no legal basis to postpone a subpoena seeking his deposition testimony under oath, concluding that neither the probe nor the court were “bound by the timelines of the national election.”
New York Attorney General Letitia James went to court to enforce the subpoena after Eric Trump’s lawyers abruptly canceled a July interview with investigators looking into whether the Trump Organization lied about the value of its assets in order to get loans or tax benefits. The investigation is civil, not criminal, in nature and investigators have yet to determine whether any law was broken.
James, a Democrat, said Wednesday’s ruling “makes clear that no one is above the law, not even an organization or an individual with the name Trump.”
I just hope that we all get to see this trainwreck and that the Trump lawyers are unsuccessful in keeping it behind locked doors.
Historically Trump family members do not do well during depositions so I understand why Eric is desperate to put this off.
I love how the AG says that the law applies to everybody, even the Trumps.
