It has been an extraordinary legal week for former US President Donald Trump.
On Monday, the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, his primary residence in Florida, in connection with an investigation into the handling of classified documents. The next day, a federal appeals court denied his long-running effort to block a House committee from obtaining his tax returns.
Then on Wednesday, Trump invoked his Fifth Amendment rights and declined to answer questions from the New York attorney general during a scheduled deposition. Trump was to be deposed by lawyers from New York Attorney General Letitia James' office as part of a more than three-year civil investigation into whether the Trump Organization misled lenders, insurers and tax authorities by providing them misleading financial statements.
The former President and the Trump Organization have denied any wrongdoing. Trump said in a post on Truth Social that he would be "seeing" James "for a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. history! My great company, and myself, are being attacked from all sides. Banana Republic!"
