After more than four weeks of testimony in former President Donald Trump’s New York civil fraud trial, he and three of his adult children will soon be called to testify, attorneys for New York Attorney General Letitia James said Friday.

James’ team has long indicated Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, would be questioned on the stand, and Friday, an attorney for James said the state will rest after they testify.

The Trumps and their company have already been found liable for fraud in the case, but the trial has proceeded on allegations related to falsification of business records, insurance fraud and conspiracy. The state is seeking at least $250 million in what it calls “ill-gotten gains” and harsh penalties that would severely restrict Trump business in New York.

They’re accused of misrepresenting the values of Trump properties and inflating estimates of Donald Trump’s wealth, in order to obtain favorable terms on loans and insurance. James’ office said the alleged scheme benefited them to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

The defendants have all denied the allegations against them and accused James of pursuing them for political gain. Donald Trump has repeatedly stood just outside the courtroom doors, lashing out at James and the judge in the case, accusing them of being “unfair” and “biased” against him.
