New York Attorney General Letitia James recently subpoenaed former US President Donald Trump and his two eldest children, demanding their testimony in connection with an ongoing civil investigation into the family’s business practices, according to a court filing made public Monday.

The subpoenas for Mr. Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr and his daughter Ivanka Trump stem from an investigation “into the valuation of properties owned or controlled” by Mr Trump and his company, the Trump Organisation, the filing said.

The attorney general’s attempt to get testimony from the former president was reported in December, but the court filing Monday was the first public disclosure that investigators were also seeking information from Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.

The Trumps are expected to file court papers seeking to quash the subpoenas, setting up a legal fight similar to one that played out last year after Ms James’ office subpoenaed another Trump son.

Mr Trump sued James last month, seeking to end the investigation after she requested that he sit for a January 7 deposition.
