Ivanka and Jared get sporty as they walk through Florida, days after a court ordered her to testify

Former first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner appeared carefree on Saturday as they walked their dog through Miami, just days after an appeals court in New York ordered Ivanka to testify in her father’s fraud investigation.

Ivanka was seen in pink tie-dyed shorts and a white t-shirt, with a white hat, pink sneakers and turquoise socks walking her dog Winter, with Jared walking beside her, sweating.

He donned a blue-grey t-shirt for the walk, with black shorts, black socks and gray sneakers, also with a white cap and sunglasses – and apparently he was working out because he had a sweat stain in the middle of his shirt .

They both appeared to be smiling and laughing as they walked through South Beach on Saturday — despite an appeals court in New York on Thursday that Ivanka and her brother Donald Jr. have to testify in the fraud investigation of their father Donald Trump.

The former president and his children had fought subpoenas from the office of New York State Attorney General Letitia James seeking explanations amid allegations the Trump organization engaged in fraudulent financial tactics.

But judges in the appeals division of the New York State Court upheld a Feb. 17 ruling by state Supreme Court judge Arthur Engoron that they were required to testify.

The pair appeared to be smiling and laughing, despite a New York judge ruling Thursday that Ivanka must testify in the state’s fraud investigation into her father’s organization.

Ivanka and her brother were first subpoenaed by James’s office last year in the investigation into their father’s fraud lawsuit, with prosecutors alleging that the Trump Organization had deliberately presented false financial information for more than a decade in order to secure favorable loans and other deals. to get.

The siblings soon challenged the injunction in court, alleging that any information her team obtains could be unfairly used in a separate but parallel criminal investigation led by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

But on Thursday Engoron . reigned “The existence of a criminal investigation does not preclude civil discovery of related facts, where a party may exercise the privilege against self-incrimination.”

Such a ruling means James could file a civil lawsuit against Trump using the impeachment if evidence of wrongdoing was found. She was unable to file a criminal charge due to the nature of her investigation.

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

“We will continue to follow the facts of this case and make sure that no one can evade the law.”

She claimed to have found significant evidence earlier in the year that Trump’s company inflated the value of their properties to appear better for banks and then lowered them to reduce tax bills, tweeting on Thursday: “Our investigation will continue undaunted because no one above the law.’

The criminal investigation, which began under former prosecutor Cyrus Vance, has lost momentum in recent months after it was taken over by new prosecutor Alvin Bragg.

Bragg said in a statement last month that the investigation is still ongoing, but gave few, if any, details about its progress. A grand jury called in for the investigation expired in late April without any public attempt to extend it.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed both investigations as “witch hunts” and belittled James herself as “racist” in recent statements about her investigation.

But in February, Engoron said the Trump trio’s argument that witnesses in James’ investigation would violate his right to self-incrimination in the criminal investigation is completely wrong.

He wrote that their claim “overlooks the striking fact that they have an absolute right to refuse to answer questions that they claim may accuse them.”

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

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

His second-eldest son is also a director of the Trump Organization — Eric Trump had already been forced to sit under oath with James’s investigators.

James began her investigation in 2019, after former Trump attorney Michael Cohen testified before Congress about the Trump organization’s alleged illegal business practices.

Earlier this month, Trump was forced to deposit more than $110,000 into James’s office as part of a deal to drop a contempt charge over another subpoena to hand over financial documents in the investigation.

Trump and his attorney had maintained that he did not have the data James requested and that he had turned over everything else, claiming his reasons were inadequate.

Engoron sided with James, accusing Trump of contempt of court and charging him $10,000 for every day the documents were not produced.

The former president has previously accused James, a Democrat, of investigating him out of political zeal. But those allegations have so far failed to hold up in court.

The New York court of appeals said on Thursday that James had found “significant amounts of evidence” in its investigation.

The filing also stated that Trump and children “have not identified a similarly involved company that has not been investigated or executives of such a company who have not been impeached.”

Therefore, the appellants have not demonstrated that they have been treated differently from similar persons.
