Donald Trump Jr. returned to the witness stand Thursday in a New York civil fraud trial.
New York Attorney General Letitia James alleges Donald Trump and top executives within the Trump Organization, including Trump Jr., conspired to inflate the former president's wealth by falsifying financial records.
Trump Jr. testified for about 90 minutes on Wednesday, saying he wasn't involved in his father's financial statements. On Thursday, he reiterated that point.
“I rely on the accounting team to tell me what’s accurate," he said. "That’s why we have accountants.”
Trump Jr. added that his signature is on documents that were approved by the accounting team.
The former president is expected to take the stand Monday in this case. It will be the first time during the trial that he will face questions from opposing counsel.
The judge in this case has already found that Trump committed fraud by overvaluing his properties in order to get better interest rates and better insurance rates. This portion of the trial is solely to determine how much money the Trump Organization will have to pay back.
