Washington State AG Seeks Deposition From Trump Officials


Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson intends to depose President Trump’s staffers in regards to the president signing an executive order suspending travel from seven Muslim-majority countries into the United States.

Ferguson wants to understand “what truly motivated” Trump to sign Executive Order 13769. 

The ongoing judicial stalemate between Trump and Ferguson, fighting over the constitutionality of the president’s executive order temporarily blocking said immigration into the U.S., may reach the Supreme Court. If it does, Washington AG Ferguson plans to subpoena members of Trump’s staff as witnesses in order to grasp the totality of the order.

Under Ferguson’s watch, a federal judge in Seattle issued a restraining order immediately suspending the president’s executive action.

Using every tool at his disposal, Ferguson hopes to unveil the inner workings of Trump’s executive order by revealing a calculated attempt by the president and his staff to sign the purported unconstitutional legislation.
