Donald Trump Jr. was deposed by the District of Columbia attorney general this month as part of a lawsuit alleging misuse of funds by former President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee.
CNN noted that a court filing showed Trump Jr. was deposed by D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine on Feb. 11.
The filing stated that his deposition “raised further questions about the nature” of a hotel invoice Racine’s office has been probing.
Racine had filed suit in Jan. 2020. He claimed in the suit that Trump’s inaugural committee made an unjustified payment of more than $1 million to the Trump hotel for events from Jan. 17, 2017, to Jan. 20, 2017.
The former president’s daughter, Ivanka, was interviewed by lawyers for Racine in December.
According to CBS News, however, Racine claims that despite attempts to gain more details related to the expenditure, “the district has been met with repeated obstacles, including misleading testimony, a closed hotel, and new information revealed after the deadline for issuing discovery requests passed” earlier this month.
