Trump Sons Give Inconsistent Testimony at Fraud Trial

“Donald Trump’s two eldest sons took the stand in a Manhattan courtroom Thursday in a civil fraud case against them and their father that threatens the family empire,” the New York Times reports.

“Donald Trump Jr. was calm but defensive, seeking to blame accountants for errors on financial statements that a judge has already found were fraudulent. His younger brother Eric was more combative — he acknowledged his place at the center of the business, but denied involvement in the financial statements.”

“Eric Trump — who will continue his testimony on Friday — lost his temper after lengthy questioning about his knowledge of the company’s annual financial statements.”
