A new court filing reveals that Donald Trump Jr. was deposed by the Washington , D.C., attorney general’s office as part of its lawsuit alleging that inaugural funds were misused, according to CNN.
In a court document dated Tuesday, DC Attorney General Karl Racine’s office revealed the former President’s son was deposed on February 11.
The filing states that Trump’s deposition “raised further questions about the nature” of a hotel invoice Racine’s office has been investigating. The attorney general’s office alleges that the Trump Organization signed a contract with the Loews Madison hotel for $49,358.92 for a block of rooms during the 2017 inauguration, and that the invoice was later forwarded to the Presidential Inaugural Committee which then paid the bill, according to the filing.
The AG’s office has requested to have more time to obtain discovery materials and conduct depositions, according to the filing, adding that the office has been met with “repeated obstacles, including misleading testimony, a closed hotel and new information revealed after the deadline for issuing discovery requests passed on February 8.”
The report noted that Rick Gates, who was deputy chair of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, and Ivanka Trump were both deposed in December.
