Donald Trump and his sons Don Jr. and Eric will be among the witnesses in next week’s $250 million civil fraud trial against the former president and his companies, new court filings show.
Trump and his two oldest sons — both senior executives at his company, the Trump Organization — were named on witness lists filed Thursday by lawyers for the Trumps and New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office, which alleges the Trumps have been wildly exaggerating their business assets for years.
Also named on the witness lists is Allen Weisselberg, the former chief financial officer of the Trump Organization who pleaded guilty last year to running a 15-year tax fraud scheme at the company. He testified against the company in a criminal trial last year and was sentenced to five months in jail. The company was convicted and fined $1.6 million.
