If they don't already have them, Donald Trump's adult children must all have criminal defense lawyers.

Figliuzzi said: “You had better received individual advice. Yes. They had to become lawyers because they may have already made the mistake of casually speaking to the organization's lawyers and the organization's auditors about what they knew and what role they were playing. Big mistake if they did that because the organization doesn't represent them. The organization’s lawyers have made it their business to preserve the organization, not the individual executives and officers. It becomes each man or woman for himself, and in this case the men and women happen to be a family. "
It is believed that all Trump children have criminal lawyers, but there is always the possibility that the Trump family may feel inviolable for getting away with these potential crimes for generations.
Donald Trump did not invent the concepts of banking and tax fraud. He probably learned all about it while working for his father.
It would be shocking if Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump weren't summoned to testify since all three are officers of the Trump Organization. New York state has also opened a criminal investigation into the Trump family business, suggesting that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance has found something big.
The Trumps could go down in history as the only first family convicted of a crime.
