Former President Donald Trump was forced to answer questions for seven hours during his second deposition in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil suit against him. This marks a turning point in the case, as Trump was reportedly “eager” to testify this time around, after invoking his Fifth Amendment rights during the first deposition.
Trump’s attorney Alina Habba stated that he remains resolute in his stance that he has nothing to conceal, and he looks forward to educating the attorney general about the immense success of his multibillion-dollar company. The GOP kingpin was “not only willing but also eager to testify,” Habba noted.
The lawsuit James brought against Trump is scheduled to go to trial in October if the suit isn’t settled before then. Trump criticized the case on his social media platform Truth Social ahead of the deposition, calling it ridiculous and just like all of the other Election Interference cases being brought against him.
Trump’s deposition is significant, as it represents a major step forward in the case against him. Republicans across the country are closely watching as the former president faces off against James and her team of lawyers.
