Ivanka Trump’s Testimony: A Legal Battle Unfolds

in Legal by

Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of former President Donald Trump and a prominent figure in the Trump Organization, finds herself at the center of a high-stakes legal battle. A $250 million fraud trial against her family and their business empire has taken a dramatic turn as she faces the prospect of testifying in court. In this article, we delve into the details of Ivanka Trump’s legal challenge, the arguments made by her attorney, and the court’s decision to deny her request to avoid testifying. Let’s explore the unfolding events and the implications they hold.

The Request to Avoid Testifying

In her bid to avoid testifying in the fraud trial, Ivanka Trump argued that she would suffer “undue hardship” if forced to appear in court, particularly because it coincided with a school week. Her attorney filed an appeal seeking a stay of the order for her testimony until her appeal could be heard. The appeal also requested a pause in the entire trial until Ivanka’s appeal could be considered. However, the motion for a stay was swiftly denied by the court, setting the stage for her testimony.

The Court’s Ruling: Ivanka Trump Must Testify

A New York appeals court denied Ivanka Trump’s request to avoid testifying in the fraud trial. The court’s decision means that she must appear in Manhattan Supreme Court as previously ordered. This ruling comes after Ivanka’s two adult brothers, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, testified earlier in the trial. The focus now shifts to Ivanka Trump as she prepares to take the stand next Wednesday, following her father, former President Donald Trump, who is scheduled to testify on Monday.

The Allegations and Background of the Fraud Trial

The fraud trial, brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, alleges a decade-long scheme to falsely inflate Donald Trump Sr.’s net worth. The aim was to obtain various financial perks, including tax benefits and better loan terms. Ivanka Trump, along with her two adult brothers, Donald Jr. and Eric, are named as co-defendants in James’ case.

Ivanka Trump was initially listed as a co-defendant, but she was removed earlier this year on grounds of the statute of limitations. The claims against her were found to fall outside the permissible timeframe. Despite her dismissal as a co-defendant, Ivanka Trump still possesses firsthand knowledge of the issues central to the ongoing trial.

Arguments Presented by Ivanka Trump’s Attorney

Ivanka Trump’s attorney, Bennett Moskowitz, presented several arguments in an attempt to prevent her from testifying. He argued that the court lacked personal jurisdiction over Ivanka Trump since she is not a resident of New York but of Florida. Moskowitz also claimed that the subpoenas for her testimony were improperly served and that the judge made multiple errors in his prior ruling.

Furthermore, Moskowitz emphasized that Ivanka Trump’s appearance in court during a school week would cause “undue hardship.” He highlighted her responsibility as a parent to three minor children and the disruption it would cause to their education. However, the court rejected these arguments, asserting that her attendance for a single day of testimony does not warrant emergency relief.

New York Attorney General’s Response

New York Attorney General Letitia James opposed Ivanka Trump’s request to avoid testifying, deeming the arguments put forth by her attorney as “utterly meritless.” James emphasized that Ivanka Trump’s firsthand knowledge of the issues at hand is crucial to the fair and orderly resolution of the trial. She countered the claim that the court lacked jurisdiction over Ivanka Trump, citing her ownership of property in New York and continued business transactions within the state.

James also refuted the notion that Ivanka Trump’s need to attend the trial for a single day would constitute undue hardship. She highlighted the resources available to the Kushner family, Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner being a billionaire, and their ability to afford additional childcare if required.

The Implications and Conclusion

With the court’s ruling denying her request, Ivanka Trump is set to testify in the $250 million fraud trial. Her testimony is expected to provide crucial insights into the alleged scheme to inflate her father’s net worth. As the trial proceeds, the significance of her appearance in court cannot be understated. The outcome of this legal battle will have far-reaching consequences for the Trump family and their business empire.

In conclusion, the denial of Ivanka Trump’s request to avoid testifying in the fraud trial marks a significant development in this high-profile case. The court’s decision highlights the importance of her firsthand knowledge and its relevance to the trial. As the legal battle unfolds, all eyes will be on Ivanka Trump as she takes the stand and provides her testimony. Stay tuned for further updates on this captivating legal saga.

Kim Kardashian West meets with President TrumpAfter criticizing Trump since he was inaugurated, Kim Kardashian West has gone to Washington D.C. to meet with him to hopefully get clemency granted to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. She arrived yesterday with her attorney, Shawn Holley, to meet with the president. This meeting has been in the works for months.

Ms. Alice Marie Johnson is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense. The 63 year old grandmother was convicted in 1996 on eight criminal charges stemming from a cocaine trafficking operation involving more than a dozen people. As of today she has spent 20 years behind bars and is not eligible for parole.

Johnson has been honest about what led for her to become involved in drugs. She had lost her job at Fedex due to a gambling addiction, she got divorced, and her son died in a motorcycle accident. She said during a recent interview, “I felt like a failure… I went into a complete panic and out of desperation, I made one of the worst decisions of my life to make some quick money. I became involved in a drug conspiracy.”

Kardashian West first heard about Johnson’s plight in from a Mic video posted last October. Kardashian West shared the video on Twitter and the video was viewed more than 8 million times.

Sources are saying that the meeting went well and that Kardashian West feels that this is going to move in a positive direction. She also met with Jared Kushner and Ivanka for dinner to discuss the potential pardon.

Kim Kardashian West issued a statement that said, “I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense. We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she—and so many like her—will get a second chance at life.”

When Johnson realized that Kardashian West was meeting with the president about commuting her sentence, she penned a very emotional letter thanking the reality tv star. Johnson wrote, “Ms Kardashian you are literally helping to save my life and restore me to my family. I was drowning and you have thrown me a life jacket and given me hope that this Life jacket I’m serving may one day be taken off.”

There is no word yet whether Trump will commute Johnson’s sentence but he did tweet that he had great meeting with Kardashian West.

aubrey-oday-djt-affair-hintMore details are coming to light about the divorce between Donald Trump, Jr. and his wife, Vanessa. Although it has yet to be confirmed, many media outlets are reporting an affair happened between Don Jr. and the singer, Aubrey O’Day. O’Day appeared on the fifth season of Celebrity Apprentice where she met Don Jr. and even admitted on the show that she had a crush on him. Even though there were never any public rumors about the two during that time, now a lot of information is coming to light that implicates the two had an affair.

During the show, the ex-Danity Kane singer even admitted that she had a crush on Don Jr. and at some point during an interview said, “Don Jr. makes me nervous, because his opinion means a lot. He’s done this for a very long time. And also, I have a very big crush on him, so I don’t want to disappoint him.”

The revelation at the time in 2012 didn’t mean a whole lot but now that Don Jr. is getting divorced, both that quote and many of O’Day’s twitter posts are all pointing towards an affair. Sources are also confirming to media outlets that the affair was even found out my Vanessa who then called to confront O’Day about the affair. According to USWeekly, a source came forward and said that Vanessa found emails between her husband and O’Day. Vanessa decided to confront O’Day about the affair. She called O’Day with her children on the phone with the intent to shame and humiliate O’Day. Vanessa was pregnant at the time with her fourth child and was “crazy with jealousy” according to a source.

The affair began in 2011 and appeared to go through 2012. A source close to O’Day told USWeekly that the affair was very intense. The source said, “When it started, he and Aubrey were very serious all of a sudden. He told her it was over with his wife, that they were separated and he didn’t love her — all of that stuff. Aubrey fell for him hard,” adds the insider. “She thought they were going to be together for real.”

There were clues on her social media that she was with someone that time but she never mentioned who it was. She posted some very cryptic tweets about being in love and taking trips with a loved one. When asked who she was referring to, she only gave a coy answer. She told media outlets that her boyfriend wished to remain anonymous.

Sources have also come forward to say that Don Jr. was going to leave his wife but his father stepped in and talked some sense into him. Don Jr. went back to his wife and O’Day went on to write a song titled, “DJT”, which people now think the song written after the affair was called off. The song title also happens to be the initials of Donald John Trump, Jr. and the lyrics speak of a tumultuous relationship between two people.

Neither party has come forward to confirm the rumor but enough sources have come forward with information that seems to confirm the affair.

Donald-Trump-Jr and wife vanessa file for divorce The ring is off. Vanessa Trump has filed for divorce from Donald Jr. and she has a very high powered attorney handing her case. David Feureisen of the firm Bartels & Feureisen was hired by Vanessa to help handle her divorce. Feureisen is a very well known criminal defense attorney that has a reputation for fighting hard. So far, it has not been made public who will be representing Don. Jr.

The couple had been married for 12 years and has 5 children together. The news was announced earlier this week and it came as a surprise to fellow Trump supporters. Vanessa filed the paperwork this last Thursday and she currently is not seeking full custody of the children. Don Jr. is not objecting to the filing. She also filed the divorce as uncontested. She was then seen this morning not wearing her wedding ring.

The split was first acknowledged by Don Jr. on his Instagram page this Thursday. He posted a picture with one of his daughters, Chloe, with the caption, “No matter what is going on bedtime cuddling with the smurf puts a Yuge smile on my face. #bedtime#daddysgirl #cuddle.”

The ex-couple released a joint statement. The statement said, “After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways.We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”

The rumor going around is that Vanessa had some issues with Don Jr.’s controversial use of his social media. He has been making headlines recently by liking tweets which made false statements about the victims of the Parkland shooting, including one that suggested there was a link between anti-depressants and kids who go on mass shooting sprees. The tweets caught the attention of the media and Don Jr. was blasted for spreading hate and misinformation.

There has been another report by Page Six says that couple has actually been separating for a long time now and only have decided to recently make it official. Sources that spoke to Page Six said that the couple had been having issues for a long time. The sources also stated that since his father became president, Don Jr. has been traveling a lot for work and that put huge strain on their marriage. The sources also told Page Six that friends and family are concerned about him because he behavior has changed over the last two years.

We can’t say that we are sorry to this couple break up. Don Jr. seems like a real piece of work and we hope that Vanessa is able to escape that circus unscathed.




Tila Tequila Suspended from Twitter for Rant About Nazis

in Scandals by

Tila Tequila has never been known to exercise the best judgement when it comes to her social media. The crazy reality TV star has been known to use Twitter to tweet out racist posts in the past. Whether she actually believes what she posts or she does it to stay relevant is unknown. Well it turns out she has finally violated the code of conduct rules for Twitter. Her account has finally been suspended. reported that she was suspended from Twitter after posting a photo of herself saluting Hitler alongside two men at the white nationalist National Policy Institute conference in Washington. She captioned the photo with, ““Seig [sic] heil!”. She has never been shy about admitting that she respects Hitler. Her bio on Twitter states that she is the “Alt-reich queen” and “Literally Hitler”. She has posted the photo of herself dressed in a revealing nazi costume complete with swastikas next to Donald Trump.

She has been an avid Donald Trump supporter and a supporter of the Alt-right movement, which is just an unassuming name for a pretty racist movement. The Southern Poverty Law Center defines the Alt-Right Movement as, “A set of far-right ideologies, groups and individuals whose core belief is that “white identity” is under attack by multicultural forces using “political correctness” and “social justice” to undermine white people and “their” civilization. Characterized by heavy use of social media and online memes, Alt-Righters eschew “establishment” conservatism, skew young, and embrace white ethno-nationalism as a fundamental value.” So make no mistake, Tila Tequila is a supporter white supremacist group. Thankfully Twitter got on board and suspended her account for spewing such hateful rhetoric.

Unfortunately, Tila Tequila is also a mother of a a little girl who she is raising by herself. As far as we understand it, the baby’s father split with Tila while she was pregnant and found it hard to deal with her. He stated that he was trying hard to stay cordial with her for the sake of the child. The reality star first rose to fame as a Myspace personality. She starred in a few reality dating tv shows and fell off the radar shortly after. Until she decided to post some rantings and ravings on her social media.

We truly hope that Twitter keeps her crazy @ss off so people no longer have to read her nonsense.
