Just what former President Donald Trump said during a seven-hour deposition with New York Attorney General Letitia James on Wednesday is coming to light in a new report.
Near the start of the deposition, Trump gave his name and read a statement that called the investigation into whether his real estate company violated New York tax laws a continuation of “the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country” and said James “openly campaigned on a policy of destroying me,” his lawyer, Ronald Fischetti, told the New York Times. James did not visibly react, Fischetti noted.
The article goes on to state the following:
Amid “questions about valuations and golf clubs and all that stuff,” Trump invoked his right against self-incrimination as he repeated “same answer” throughout the deposition, which was interspersed with breaks, per the lawyer.
“While we will not comment on specific details, we can confirm that today, our office conducted a deposition of former president Donald Trump,” the office said in a statement. “Attorney General Letitia James took part in the deposition during which Mr. Trump invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Attorney General James will pursue the facts and the law wherever they may lead. Our investigation continues.”
Trump confirmed that he “declined to answer” questions during his deposition.
“Accordingly, under the advice of my counsel and for all of the above reasons, I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution,” Trump posted to Truth Social.
