President Donald Trump will answer questions in writing and under oath for the 2017 defamation lawsuit filed by former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos, the Washington Post reported Sunday.
According to a new court filing, attorneys for the president and Zervos have agreed to the exchange of “written answers and objections” to questions submitted in writing by Sept. 28. Trump will be sworn in prior to the written interrogation.
Zervos, who in 2016 accused Trump of grabbing her breast without her consent and unwanted aggressive kissing in 2007, filed suit against the then president-elect in January 2017. The defamation suit alleges that Trump falsely branded Zervos a liar after she made her accusations public, calling her story “totally made up nonsense.”
