Donald Trump will be grilled by New York prosecutors Wednesday as part of Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation into the Trump Organization.

The pending deposition will take place behind closed doors at an undisclosed location, according to Fox News.

The 76-year-old former president confirmed the meeting on his social media platform Truth Social Tuesday — and blasted it as a “witch hunt.”

“In New York City tonight. Seeing racist N.Y.S. Attorney General tomorrow, for a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. history! My great company, and myself, are being attacked from all sides. Banana Republic!,” he wrote.

James says her office has evidence that Trump’s company used “fraudulent or misleading” valuations of its skyscrapers, golf clubs and other assets to secure loans and tax breaks.

The deposition comes after years of delays, lawsuits and appeals in connection to the probe, which was launched in 2019 based on the sworn testimony of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

James is alleging that Trump’s company used fraudulent valuations of its assets.

Most recently, James agreed to postpone depositions for Trump and his children Ivanka and Donald Jr. after the July passing of Ivana Trump. Ivanka and Donald Jr. have since been deposed.

The Trump Organization’s finances are also part of a wide-ranging probe by Manhattan prosecutors, who are set to try former CFO Allen Weisselberg for tax fraud.

The former president is denying the claims of James’ office, calling the investigation “a witch hunt.”

On Monday, the feds raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, and reportedly cracked open a safe while looking for presidential records and classified information suspected to have illegally been taken from the National Archives.

The Department of Justice is also investigating Trump’s role in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election and his culpability in the violent Jan 6., 2021 Capitol riots.

Additionally, Georgia prosecutors are weighing subpoenaing Trump in connection with an election fraud inquiry in that state.

Trump has denied all accusations of wrongdoing as he mulls a third consecutive White House run.
