New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron said Wednesday that Eric Trump must testify and turn over documents by Oct. 7 in a fraud investigation into his family's real estate business. Trump's lawyers had said he was willing to meet with investigators in the Trump Organization probe, but that he was too busy to do so until after the election. Engoron said he found the explanation for the attempted delay "unpersuasive." New York Attorney General Letitia James had subpoenaed Trump, a top executive at the Trump Organization, in an investigation into whether President Trump inflated his assets' values to get loans and tax benefits. Eric Trump was set to meet with James' team in July, but he canceled.
