Former US President Donald Trump arrived in Manhattan on Thursday for a deposition before New York Attorney General Letitia James, he said on his social media platform, Truth Social.

Last September, James filed a civil action in New York state court in Manhattan against Trump and his three adult children for fraud, accusing them of inflating the prices of real estate properties in order to receive preferential loans and tax breaks. Following the filing of the action, Trump also sued James.

In March, Trump asked the court to extend the deadline for the case by six months, citing the need for more time to analyze the “staggering” volume of evidence, including millions of pages of papers, and question dozens of witnesses.

“… I will finally be able to show what a great, profitable, and valuable company I built, actually, some of the greatest real estate assets anywhere in the world,” Trump claimed in a new Truth Social post on Thursday.

Trump, who is running for re-election in 2024, was also indicted earlier this month by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office.

He was charged with 34 felony counts of fabricating company records in connection with allegations that he organized payments to two women prior to the 2016 election in order to prevent the publication of their sexual encounters with him.
