Former President Donald Trump’s two eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, gave evidence this week at their father’s civil fraud trial in New York.

One point of controversy was Eric Trump’s statement that he did not work on his father’s statement of financial condition. Eric Trump says his work focuses on operations, and not on appraisals. So why would he be involved in the fraud allegations?

Donald Trump Jr. says he relied on accountants to prepare financial statements, and simply signed on them as a trustee. What impact could this statement have on his potential liability?

NTD was joined by Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, for in-depth of analysis of the proceedings.
