Trump cancels rally in response to subpoena: report

Former President Donald Trump has canceled a planned event in North Carolina due to a subpoena in New York.

“Former President Trump and his adult children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr., are scheduled to testify under oath July 15 in an investigation by the New York Attorney General into his finances, a filing revealed Wednesday. judiciary,” Axios reported. .

Trump was to be in Greensboro the same day.

“The American Freedom Tour had announced appearances in Greensboro in May by Trump, Trump Jr., television news personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, former New York State judge Jeanine Pirro, Sheriff Mark Lamb of the Pinal County, Arizona, and political commentator Dinesh D’Souza”, the Raleigh News and Observer reported Monday.

Tickets for the event were selling for up to $3,955.

Organizers cited “unforeseen circumstances” for the postponement.

The Trump family is under investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

James said in January that his civil investigation found the Trump Organization had fraudulently overvalued several assets to secure loans and then undervalued them to minimize taxes.

If James finds evidence of financial misconduct, she can sue the Trump Organization for damages, but cannot bring criminal charges.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation into possible financial crimes and insurance fraud, however, is very similar.

In that case, the Trump Organization and its longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, pleaded not guilty in a New York court to 15 fraud and tax evasion charges in July last year.

His trial is due to start in the middle of this year.

At the heart of the twin investigations are a decade of financial statements that longtime Trump accountants Mazar said last week were unreliable.

Mazar’s announced that it was ending its relationship with Trump in part because of James’ findings.
