Earlier this week the news broke that the Manhattan District Attorney is criminally targeting not just Donald Trump, but also Donald Trump Jr., for various financial crimes. This points to Junior ultimately being arrested and put on trial. But that’s not the only probe he’s caught up in right now.
The Washington DC Attorney General has a civil probe going into financial fraud tied to 2017 Trump inaugural funds. CNN is now reporting that Donald Trump Jr. was deposed in this probe two weeks ago. It’s not yet clear if Junior is seen as a target or merely as a witness, but this does come after Ivanka Trump was reportedly deposed in the same probe.
In any case it’s becoming more and more clear that the Trump family’s future is going to center around trials and depositions. At this point it’s just a question of which Trump family members end up criminally charged.
