Ivanka and Jared get athletic as they walk around Florida after court rules she must testify

Just days after a New York appeals court ruled that Ivanka must testify in her father’s fraud investigation, former first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner were walking their dogs in Miami on Saturday. before the world.

Wearing pink tie-dye shorts and a white T-shirt, Ivanka wore a white hat, pink sneakers and turquoise socks as she walked her dog, Winter, with Jared sweating beside her.

He was walking in a blue-grey T-shirt, black shorts, black socks and grey sneakers, along with a white hat and sunglasses – apparently he was working out because there was sweat in the middle of his shirt.

They all seemed to be laughing and laughing as they walked along South Beach on Saturday — even though a New York appeals court ruled Thursday that Ivanka and her brother Donald Jr. must testify in the fraud investigation of their father, Donald Trump.

The former president and his children have been battling subpoenas from the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James seeking testimony amid allegations that the Trump Organization engaged in fraudulent financial tactics.

But judges in the New York State Court of First Instance Appeals Division upheld a Feb. 17 ruling by state Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron that they must testify.

Ivanka, wearing pink tie-dye shorts and a white T-shirt, pink sneakers and turquoise socks, was sweating as she walked her dog while Winter and Jared walked beside her.

The couple appeared to be laughing even though a New York appeals court judge ruled Thursday that Ivanka must testify in the state’s fraud investigation organized against her father.

Last year, Ivanka and her brother were first subpoenaed by James’ office to investigate their father’s fraud, with prosecutors arguing that the Trump Organization knowingly misrepresented financial information for more than a decade to obtain concessional loans and other transactions.

The siblings were quick to challenge the order in court, claiming that any information her team obtained could be unfairly used in a separate but parallel criminal investigation being conducted by the Manhattan district attorney’s office.

But on Thursday, N’Gron ruled “The existence of a criminal investigation does not preclude the civil discovery of the relevant facts, and the parties may exercise the privilege of immunity from self-incrimination.”

Such a ruling means James would be able to use his testimony to bring a civil lawsuit against Trump if evidence of wrongdoing is found. Due to the nature of the investigation, she was unable to bring criminal charges.

“Once again, the court has ruled that Donald Trump must comply with our lawful investigation of his financial dealings,” James said in a statement following the decision.

“We will continue to focus on the facts of this case to ensure that no one can escape the law.”

She claimed to have found important evidence earlier this year that Trump’s companies inflated the value of their properties to make banks look better, then lowered them to reduce tax bills, tweeting on Thursday: “Our investigation will continue. , because no one is above the law.’

Meanwhile, a criminal investigation that began under former District Attorney Cyrus Vance has lost momentum after being taken over by new prosecutor Alvin Bragg in recent months.

Bragg said in a statement last month that the investigation was still ongoing, but offered few details on its progress. The grand jury set up for the investigation expired at the end of April without any public attempt to extend it.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed the two investigations as “witch hunts,” and has dismissed James himself as a “racist” in recent statements about her investigation.

But in February, N’Gollen said the Trump trio’s arguments that testifying in James’ investigation would violate his right to stand against self-incrimination in a criminal investigation were completely out of date.

Their claims, he wrote, “ignore the obvious fact that they have an absolute right to refuse to answer questions that they claim might incriminate them.”

While the former president stepped down from running the company before entering the White House, his son Donald Trump Jr. remains the executive vice president there.

Ivanka Trump left the company in 2017 to work with her husband Jared Kushner as an adviser in her father’s presidential administration.

His second-eldest son is also a Trump Organization executive — Eric Trump has been forced to sit down with James’ investigators and take the oath.

Trump was seen Saturday at a rally in Wyoming where he was forced to pay more than $110,000 to James' office as part of a deal to drop contempt charges on another subpoena

James opened the investigation in 2019 after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified before Congress about the Trump Organization’s alleged illegal business practices.

Earlier this month, Trump was forced to pay James’ office more than $110,000 as part of a deal to drop contempt charges against another subpoena for handing over financial documents in the investigation.

Trump and his lawyers have insisted that he does not have the records James requested and that he has handed over everything else, while she argues that his reasons were insufficient.

Engoron eventually sided with James, charging Trump with contempt of court and charging him $10,000 for every day he didn’t produce documents.

The former president has previously accused Democrat James of investigating him out of political hostility. But the allegations have so far not been proven in court.

The New York Court of Appeals said Thursday that James had found “substantial evidence” in her investigation.

The document also states that Trump and the children “have not identified any similarly implicated companies that have not been investigated or any executives of such companies that have not been removed.”

“As a result, the appellants have failed to demonstrate that they were treated differently from anyone in a similar situation,” it said.
