Ivanka Trump breaks with father's defense in New York fraud case

She requested a trial delay for a very different reason than her father and brothers.

Her lawyer argued that the case is "not simple" because she left the Trump organization in 2017.

Trump's attorney stated that Ivanka has a "unique" defense as she has not been accused of lying about the company's finances.

The Complaint does not contain any allegations that Ivanka created, prepared, reviewed, or certified any of her father's financial statements.

Other individuals were responsible for those tasks, according to the document.

The former president's attorneys requested a delay to push the fraud trial deeper into the 2024 presidential campaign.

New York Attorney General Letitia James accused Donald Trump and his children of fraudulently manipulating real estate values for profit.

The trial is scheduled for Oct. 2, as Judge Arthur Engoron stated that it would be held "come hell or high water."
