Eric Trump sat for deposition as part of investigation by New York attorney general (88 hits)


New York (CNN) Eric Trump, who runs day-to-day operations of the family real estate empire, sat for a deposition on Monday as part of the New York Attorney General's investigation into whether the Trump Organization improperly inflated the value of its assets, a person familiar with the matter tells CNN.

The deposition follows a court battle over whether he would sit for testimony and provides a key step in the New York civil investigation into the Trump Organization.

Trump, who according to court records was scheduled to sit for the deposition on Monday, sat for the hearing virtually, the person said, adding that it ended around 5 p.m.

Trump, the middle son of President Donald Trump and executive vice president of the Trump Organization, has taken over day-to-day operations of the real estate business since his father became president. His deposition schedule was disclosed in a court filing made on Friday.

New York lawyers have said they want to interview Eric Trump as part of their investigation into whether the Trump Organization and Donald Trump "improperly inflated the value of Mr. Trump's assets on financial statements in order to secure loans and obtain economic and tax benefits."

One specific area that investigators are looking into is a conservation easement Trump took for Seven Springs. New York investigators said in court filings that Donald Trump "apparently" took a $21 million income tax deduction on the lost development value to the property.

Investigators are seeking to interview Eric Trump under oath because of his "direct involvement" in specific areas under investigation, including a conservation easement taken on a Trump-owned property in Bedford, New York, known as Seven Springs. The New York lawyers said they are seeking information about the valuation provided on the conservation easement, noting Eric Trump was "intimately involved" in the development efforts on the property.

Lawyers for Eric Trump could not be reached for comment Monday.

The New York investigators went to court in late August to enforce a subpoena for Trump's testimony after he canceled his scheduled appearance in July.
