The son of the President of the United States, Eric Trump, on Monday, October 5, gave a sworn testimony to the New York State Attorney General’s Office in connection with the Trump Organization investigation. Writes about this The New York Times.

According to the newspaper, the son of the head of state answered questions from prosecutors via video link. The poll ended at 5:00 pm US East Coast time (00:00 Moscow time).

It is noted that the department refused to disclose the essence of the testimony of Eric Trump. His lawyers declined to comment.

An investigation into the Trump Organization was launched by New York State Attorney General Letitia James in March. The company is suspected of artificially inflating the value of its assets in order to obtain loans. The proceedings were launched after the former US President’s attorney Michael Cohen made allegations that the Trump Organization had resorted to this practice.

Even before his inauguration, Donald Trump announced that he had left all his posts in the Trump Organization belonging to him in order to hand them over to his sons Donald and Eric. At the same time, Trump did not get rid of his companies, since, according to lawyers, this would mean selling them for a song to the detriment of the interests of the rest of the family.

At the end of September, The New York Times, citing tax returns, wrote that Donald Trump had not paid federal income tax in 10 years. According to the publication, the American leader in 2016, when he became president, paid only $ 750 in income tax, and the same amount in 2017.
