Donald Trump and children Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. filed new court filings Monday, continuing to argue that they should not be compelled to testify as part of an investigation into the Trump organizations’ business dealings.
Last month, the trio filed an appeal to try to block a ruling that required them to comply with subpoenas from New York Attorney General Letitia James’ ongoing investigation into the family business.
Repeating arguments they previously presented to the lower court judge, the former president and his two children claimed that James had targeted Trump for selective prosecution since 2018 to advance her political career, according to her filed with the Appellate Division letter emerges.
James said in a statement on Monday: “Despite constant efforts to prevent this investigation, no one can stop our quest for justice, no matter how powerful they are.
“We will continue to pursue the facts without fear or favor.”
The AG launched its investigation into the Trump Organization in 2019 after Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, testified before Congress that Trump had exaggerated the value of the company’s assets to obtain better loan terms and for tax purposes.
She then filed a lawsuit in 2020, claiming the company was blocking her investigation.
Trump’s attorney did not immediately respond to a Post request for comment. His children’s attorney declined to comment.
