Former President Donald Trump was questioned Wednesday, under oath, in a defamation lawsuit filed against him in 2019 by E. Jean Carroll, said Zak Sawyer, a spokesman for the law firm representing Carroll.
Carroll is the journalist, author and former advice columnist for Elle magazine who has accused Trump of raping her in a New York City department store more than two decades ago – an allegation Trump has denied.
The legal questioning of Trump, which his lawyers long battled to avoid, was expected to take place at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
“We’re pleased that on behalf of our client, E. Jean Carroll, we were able to take Donald Trump’s deposition today. We are not able to comment further,” said Sawyer.
A Trump representative did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
