The former President of New York has been ordered to give testimony under oath on Monday for a lawsuit brought by a group of demonstrators who tell NBC affiliate that they were roughed up by his security guards outside Trump Tower in Manhattan.
The suit is one of at least 10 civil cases being pending against Trump, and the videotaped deposition — playing as Trump's testimony when the case goes to trial — will be the first since he was elected president in 2016.
The demonstrators’ suit was filed in late 2015, and the Trump's attorneys have made numerous attempts to block him from testifying in the years since, including arguing in 2019 that he was too busy with his presidential duties.
Supreme Court Justice Doris Gonzalez ordered the deposition to be held on Monday at Trump Tower.
On Monday, we will be indicted dilatory testimony of Donald Trump with oath after years of the defendants dilatory attempts to shield him from this examination, said Benjamin Dictor, an attorney for the protesters. We look forward to presenting the video of Mr. Trump s testimony to a jury at his trial.
