New York Attorney General Letitia James is seeking testimony from Donald Trump as part of an ongoing fraud inquiry involving the former president's namesake real estate business the Trump Organization, a person familiar with the matter said Thursday.

Trump's deposition, requested for early next month, would mark a new escalation of a civil investigation into financial fraud involving his company.
