NY AG delays depositions of Trump, 2 of his children, following death of Ivana Trump

Depositions of former President Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. in connection with the New York attorney general’s civil investigation into the family's businesses practices have been delayed, the New York Attorney General's Office said Friday.

The AG's office said the postponement was due to the death of Ivana Trump, the former president's ex-wife and the mother of Ivanka and Donald Jr., on Thursday.

"In light of the passing of Ivana Trump yesterday, we received a request from counsel for Donald Trump and his children to adjourn all three depositions, which we have agreed to," the office said in a statement. "This is a temporary delay and the depositions will be rescheduled as soon as possible. There is no other information about dates or otherwise to provide at this time."

"We offer our condolences to the Trump family," the statement added.
