New York Attorney General Leticia James has subpoenaed Donald Trump to testify in a civil fraud case exploring the allegation that fraud "permeates" the Trump Organization, as reported in the Washington Post.
Given that the Trump Organization and its Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg are under indictment for a 15-year-long criminal scheme to defraud, Donald Trump plainly has a Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination which he could invoke at the deposition.
There are significant differences and consequences involved when one pleads the Fifth in a criminal case versus a civil case. This video discusses the difference and what’s at stake for Tump now the he has been subpoenaed to testify.
