Trump Testifies About Washington Hotel Case

Due to the interventions of NBC and MSNBC filing a lawsuit, video of Donald Trump testifying under oath will soon be made public. The testimony is in relation to a case involving Trump’s new Washington D.C. hotel at the historic Old Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue. Specifically, it involves elebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian and DC-area chef Jose Andres pulling out of deals with Trump after feuding about his immigration policies.

According to publicly released transcripts, Trump argued the chefs who objected to his rhetoric about illegal immigrants were being “politically correct” when they canceled deals to operate at Trump’s new hotel.

In the decision, Judge Brian Holeman said that concerns about selective editing of the video should not be considered valid grounds for the prevention of its release.

“The public shall not be held captive by the suggested eventuality of partisan editing in a manner unfavorable to Plaintiff or the deponents,” he wrote.
