Judge orders Donald Trump to give deposition in protester case

September 21, 2019

  A judge has ordered Donald Trump to give a videotaped (do they still use videotape?) deposition in a case involving some Mexican protesters who allege they were “roughed up” in front of Trump Tower while he was running for President. The lawsuit alleges the billionaire businessman should have known the people he hired for security would act in a “negligent or reckless manner.”

  Here is more:

A New York judge Friday ordered President Donald Trump to give a videotaped deposition in a lawsuit filed by protesters who claim they were roughed up outside Trump Tower in 2015.

State Supreme Court Judge Doris Gonzalez of the Bronx denied Trump’s effort to quash the subpoena, ordering him to videotape a deposition for the trial before jury selection begins Sept. 26.

The lawsuit stems from a Sept. 3, 2015, protest outside Trump Tower over negative comments Trump made about Mexico and Mexican immigrants when he began his presidential campaign that summer.

Six protesters of Mexican origin who claimed they were assaulted sued Trump, the Trump Organization, his presidential campaign and security personnel.

The judge wrote that Trump’s testimony is “indispensable,” given his relationship to the other defendants, who are described in court papers as either employees or under contract.

  It is highly unusual for a sitting President to be ordered to give a sworn deposition but this judge ruled because of Donald Trump’s relationship to the security guards his testimony was “indispensable.”

  So what was this relationship? They were hired by Donald Trump to protect him and they were protecting him at his place of employ. They were doing what they were hired to do.

  Maybe the security guards got a little too rough, I do not know but I imagine we will find out during the trial, but what, exactly, that has to do with Donald Trump, other than questioning his hiring practices, I am not sure. But this will give the media something to run with and that is all they care about.

    While they’re at it they might find out which of Soro’s operatives paid these chili beans to demonstrate in the first place.

    Were the 6 Mexicans “legal” to be in the USA?
