The former president’s eldest daughter “may well have to choose between Daddy and perjury,” suggested Vance.
Ivanka Trump has argued she shouldn’t have to appear before the court because she wasn’t deposed before the trial. Vance, however, said it likely won’t wash because Ivanka Trump is a “fact witness” in courtroom testimony about the alleged price manipulation of a penthouse. James should, therefore, “be permitted” to call on her to take the stand, Vance added.
“If their positions were reversed, it’s hard to imagine Trump sacrificing himself for her,” said Vance. “As the wheels come off the Trump’s legal wagon, it’s going to be everyone for themselves.”
