In a court document dated Tuesday, Washington State Attorney Karl Racine revealed the ex-president’s son was deposed on February 11th.
The file said Trump’s testimony “raised further questions about the nature” of the hotel bill that Racine’s office was investigating. The attorney general’s office alleges that the Trump Organization signed a contract with the Loews Madison Hotel for $ 49,358.92 for a block of rooms during the 2017 opening ceremony, and that the bill was subsequently sent to the Inaugural Presidential Committee who then paid the bill, according to the filing.
The attorney general’s office demanded more time to obtain exploratory materials and make statements, according to the filing, adding that the office faced “repeated obstacles, including misleading testimony, hotel closures, and the disclosure of new information after the issuance deadline. Discovery requests passed February 8th.”
Loews Madison has closed due to the pandemic and changed owners twice, according to the deposit.
