Former President Donald Trump will head back to New York City to face questioning Thursday in a civil fraud lawsuit just over one week after pleading not guilty to 34 counts of felony fraud in a separate criminal case.

Attorney General Letitia James, who Trump has heavily criticized in the past, will question the former president. James has accused Trump and the Trump organization of manipulating asset values. James also is going after his children — Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka — arguing that they should not be allowed to be officers or directors of any corporation registered or licensed in New York.

The former president will head to New York City from Florida and will likely return the same day. (RELATED: Rep. Byron Donalds Endorses Trump For President In 2024)

After Trump was indicted, he delivered a primetime Mar-a-Lago address, in which he detailed the endless legal battles he is facing as a 2024 presidential candidate. (RELATED: Trump Details Endless Legal Fights In Primetime Mar-A-Lago Address After Indictment)

Trump mentioned Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is looking into Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents. He also mentioned James’ investigation into him and his business as well as the Georgia grand jury’s investigation into his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

This will be Trump’s second time being questioned by James. In 2022, Trump invoked his fifth amendment rights when being questioned.
