Trump news today: Ex-president, Don Jr and Ivanka set to testify in New York fraud probe

Jamie Raskin doesn’t say whether the Jan 6 Committee will get Mike Pence to testify

Former president Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr and daughter, Ivanka Trump are scheduled to testify in New York’s civil probe into alleged fraud at their family business from 15 July.

Court documents revealed on Wednesday that New York state attorney general Letitia James and her team of investigators will have to conclude their questioning “by the following week.”

Meanwhile, a former GOP insider tells The Independent that former president Donald Trump will “lose his mind” when he watches the January 6 committee hearings on the Capitol riot on Thursday evening and realises no one is there to interject on his behalf. The January 6 committee hearings will get underway starting at 8 pm ET Thursday.

Kurt Bardella also called House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy’s decision to withdraw Republican committee picks a “massive strategic error”.

Trump allies, meanwhile, are called the prime time special “disgustingly out of touch”, saying that Americans care more about inflation and gas prices, and no one will watch.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has laid into Fox News for its decision not to broadcast the hearings live on its main channel when every other network will.
