TW Newsdesk, Oct 20: Former President Donald Trump was deposed under oath for 4 1/2 hours this week in connection with a lawsuit filed by a group of protesters who said his bodyguards attacked them in 2015.

The questioning took place in a conference room on the 25th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan on October 18, according to one of the plaintiffs’ lawyers, Benjamin N Dictor.

Dictor said that the former president had been asked about his relationship with other defendants, including his longtime personal bodyguard Keith Schiller, as well as a witness in the case, Matthew Calamari. Calamari is an executive at the Trump Organization whom prosecutors at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office have been weighing whether to charge as part of their long-running investigation into Trump and his family business.

Dictor, a labor lawyer, also represents the New York NewsGuild, a union representing the employees of various news publications including The New York Times.

Other topics that may have arisen in the deposition could also be of interest to investigators and to the general public, including any discussion of the former president’s net worth, which is relevant to the case because the plaintiffs have asked for punitive damages.

It is unclear whether the former president’s testimony will become public. Trump’s lawyers could request that it be sealed.
