Judge Orders Deposition of Trump

February 23, 2023 at 3:33 pm EST By Taegan Goddard 43 Comments

“A federal judge has agreed to permit former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to take sworn testimony from former President Donald Trump for two hours as part of their long-running lawsuits related to Strzok’s firing in 2018 after Trump repeatedly and publicly pilloried the pair,” Politico reports.

2. I'm hoping Peter and Lisa's lawyers can goad him into saying something he shouldn't. And the odds

are always high that the misfit cacophony of idiots TFG calls lawyers will do something stupid.

7. I think it's a civil lawsuit

So the Fifth Amendment may not be available.

10. I think it is available but if he invokes it, adverse inferences may be drawn from his

decision to invoke it.

Plaintiffs lawyers will probably be trying to get him to invoke it. Costs them nothing to try ...

Trump tried to sue them along with Hillary Clinton and 20 or so others but got nailed with $1 mil sanction

require a majority vote.

Any lawyers able to answer this question?

Outrageous abuse of power, disgusting and hypocritical to attack them so publicly over something trump has done his entire life without any regrets.

5. That's great. I didn't realize they were suing, but there are so many cases against

Trump going on, who can keep track? Hope they take him for a huge pile of cash . . . even if it does come from his donors.

13. Yes. Andrew McCabe's wrongful termination case is likely to be a big one as well.

If only we could institute a special tax so that only Trump supporters had to pay for all the lawsuits against the federal government he provided grounds for.

Judge says Trump can be deposed in lawsuits by ex-FBI officials whom he publicly attacked

17. "Getting deposed" means he agrees to answer questions under oath

It's not the same thing as a trial, and there's no jury present.

Still ... it would be great if Chump starts flapping his yap. Maybe the lawyers will trigger Chump into saying stuff that can go against him later. There's a very good chance that this will be kept under wraps though. Especially if Chump settles and agrees to pay damages, rather than go to court.

We'll see.

20. Ooooh! I'd love to be in the room, too!

I'm happy for them. It will be interesting to see what they learn... Also, how much of a tantrum he throws... and how long he can drag it out. I expect this lawsuit is not a major, MAJOR concern for him with all the possible criminal cases swirling around, but it's one more thing not going "his way."

in the room perhaps he will be baited into saying or doing something stupid 🙂

I will save the court reporter a great amount of time. The entries will all be "I don't remember" and "5th".
