(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Donald Trump, is expected to provide her testimony in the New York civil fraud trial against her father. However, on Monday the judge presiding over her case stated that her testimony would be delayed by a week to ensure that there would be sufficient time for questioning her.
Originally Ivanka Trump was expected to take the witness stand on Friday. However, as that is a half-day session for the court, it was decided that her testimony should be pushed back because it is expected to take a day or more. Judge Arthur Engoron had previously proposed the possibility of turning Friday into a full day rather than a half day, but Donald Trump’s lawyers argued that this was not possible, as it would interfere with other commitments.
Previously Ivanka Trump had attempted to avoid having to give her testimony altogether, with her legal team arguing that since she was no longer a defendant in the case she should not be obliged to testify. Engoron determined that her testimony was still necessary.
Following a discussion in court about the day that Ivanka Trump would be called to the stand, both sides agreed that she would appear in court on Wednesday the 8th. This scheduling change will now require Ivanka Trump to testify in the case against her family’s real estate empire, and her two brothers and father, only hours before Donald Trump has a scheduled campaign rally in Miami, Florida, skipping the third primary debate.
