NY lawsuit against Trump, 2 children delayed due to Ivana’s death

NEW YORK ( Associated Press) — Former President Donald Trump and his two children on Friday postponed their inquiries into the New York civil investigation into their business deals, a delay that followed the death of Trump’s ex-wife, Ivana.

The former president, son Donald Jr. and daughter Ivanka were scheduled to submit – a term for out-of-court interrogation under oath – starting Friday. But the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James said it had agreed to postpone Ivana Trump’s death due to her, announced Thursday.

“We extend our condolences to the Trump family,” Delaney Kempner, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s office, said in a statement.

There is no new date for deposits yet.

A message was left with the lawyer of the former president. Trump’s younger lawyer Alan Futerfas declined to comment.

Ivana Trump died at the age of 73 at her Manhattan home. He was married to the former president from 1977 to 1992, and they had three children together: Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric.

The medical examiner’s office has not released a cause of death. Two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press that police are investigating whether Ivana Trump fell down the stairs and believe her death was accidental. People could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

James alleges that the former president’s company, the Trump Organization, inflated the values ​​of skyscrapers, golf courses and other holdings to obtain loans, insurance and other benefits.

Trump denies the allegations, saying it is common practice in the real estate industry to seek the best appraisals. Republicans have dismissed the investigation as part of a politically motivated “witch hunt” by Democrats like James.

Trump’s statement was waning as he lays the groundwork for a potential 2024 White House run, but also faces increasing scrutiny of his conduct in the 2020 election. His role in the January 6 Capitol uprising and attempts to reverse his losses in Georgia are being investigated in Congress.

Meanwhile, the Manhattan District Attorney is overseeing a criminal investigation that parallels James’ investigation.
