President Donald Trump’s sons-in_law, Eric Trump and Jared Kushner, have been indicted on charges of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by using a business they co-own to buy and sell real estate, according to a court filing in the case.
The Justice Department said it has also filed a criminal complaint against Kushner and Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, for allegedly participating in a scheme to sell real property.
They are expected to be arraigned in U.S. District Court in New York on Monday.
Jared Kushner’s attorneys said they intend to “prosecute these allegations vigorously.”
The indictment was unsealed on Monday, according the Associated Press.
“It is a sad day for our nation when government officials, who once stood up to bigoted discrimination, now resort to lying and lying to the American people,” Trump said in a statement.
