Trump confirms he will sit down for deposition with ‘racist’ New York AG

Former President Donald Trump confirmed on Wednesday that he will sit down for a deposition in New York Attorney General Letitia James’s civil investigation of the Trump Organization.

In a post on his Truth Social page early Wednesday morning, the former president said he was in New York City and would be meeting with the “racist N.Y.S. Attorney General.” James is investigating an alleged decadeslong pattern of financial misreporting by the Trump Organization to gain hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks and bank loans.

“In New York City tonight. Seeing racist N.Y.S. Attorney General tomorrow, for a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. history! My great company, and myself, are being attacked from all sides. Banana Republic!” Trump said in a post on his social media platform Truth Social on Wednesday.


The deposition would mark the culmination of a monthslong legal fight between the New York attorney general and the Trump family.

Two of Trump’s adult children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr., answered questions under oath for James’s probe in recent weeks. Cushman & Wakefield, a firm that appraised real estate properties for the Trump Organization, handed over thousands of documents to James’s team earlier this week.

James subpoenaed the trio for testimony late last year, but they responded with multiple court appeals attempting to quash the subpoena. In June, a judge ended their appeals and enabled a prior court order demanding their compliance.

The former president had originally been ordered to testify on Jan. 7.

His slated deposition is the latest in a tidal wave of legal woes to hit Trump.

FBI agents raided Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home on Monday reportedly as part of an investigation into the whereabouts of presidential documents.


The Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney has also been investigating Trump since January 2021 over a phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which Trump urged Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to change the election results in Georgia.

Trump is also facing a criminal probe by the Justice Department related to Jan. 6. The agency is investigating whether Trump should be held criminally responsible for the violence that occurred at the Capitol after he spoke to supporters on Jan. 6, 2021.
