Eric Trump testifies he had ‘no involvement’ in Trump Organization’s statement of financial condition

Eric Trump testified Thursday he was never involved with financial statements for the Trump Organization, echoing older brother and co-Executive Vice President Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony from earlier this week.

Both sons of former President Trump took the stand to testify in the non-jury civil trial stemming from New York Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit against Trump’s family and his businesses. 

Eric Trump is expected to return to the stand for testimony Friday.

Eric Trump said Thursday he had “no involvement and never worked on my father’s statement of financial condition.” 

Engoron in September ruled that Trump and the Trump Organization committed fraud while building his real estate empire by deceiving banks, insurers and others by overvaluing his assets and exaggerating his net worth on paperwork used in making deals and securing financing.

Engoron’s ruling came after James sued Trump, his children and the Trump Organization, alleging that the former president “inflated his net worth by billions of dollars” and said his children helped him to do so.
