What about Eric? Is it possible that he's been cooperating with the AG's office?

"You see the mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?"
"When you have your staff taking the Fifth Amendment, taking the Fifth so they are not prosecuted, when you have the man that set up the illegal server taking the Fifth, I think it is disgraceful."
"Have you seen what's going on in front of congress? Fifth amendment. Fifth amendment. Fifth amendment. Fifth amendment. Horrible."

In civil cases, a defendant is generally allowed (this may be slightly different from state to state) to invoke their Fifth Amendment rights only IF answering the question could be seen as possibly leading to the admission of a criminal act.

I suspect that in any deposition by a member of the Trump family, once they got past how to spell their names, anything that comes out of their mouths could lead to a criminal indictment.

Trump Investigators Stay On as New Manhattan DA Names Team

...Manhattan's new district attorney, Alvin Bragg, is keeping two senior lawyers from his predecessor's office who are deeply involved in the investigation of former president Donald Trump.

Bragg, who was sworn in over the weekend, announced members of his new leadership team on Monday. But Carey Dunne, who served as general counsel to former DA Cyrus Vance Jr., will stay on as special counsel under Bragg. And Mark Pomerantz, a seasoned litigator hired by Vance to serve as a special assistant district attorney in the Trump investigation, will also stay on, according to Richard Fife, a spokesman for Bragg.

Bragg has promised to bring a fresh approach to the office, which has been criticized for overlooking instances of police misconduct. His new leadership team reflects those views, starting with Meg Reiss, who will serve as Bragg's chief assistant district attorney, and recently served as chief of social justice in the King's County district attorney's office in Brooklyn.

Bragg's decision to keep the Trump investigation team intact, and his recent comments that he intends to be directly involved in the three-year-old probe, suggest he won't be letting up on a historic case that could result in criminal charges being filed against a former president....

It appears that the subpoenas were issued several months ago and the reason for disclosure now is that they've refused to comply with the orders to produce documents and to respond to written questions. Therefore, the AG is taking the next step in an attempt to force them to comply. Making this information public is part of that process.

It really is true that the very rich are different from the poor, they can hire attorneys until the end of times, and bring any and all charges, sooner or later, before a judge who was hired by them, or at least their daddy.

Yay. Stand by for more of the same.

Delaying obstructing and obfuscation of court cases until the end of his days.

It's the life Trumpy chose.

I wouldn't call that a wonderful life. But hey. It's a life.
