Trump agrees to be questioned in ‘Apprentice’ star groping case

New York: US President Donald Trump agreed to submit to questioning under oath by lawyers for a former reality show contestant whom he called a liar after she accused him of groping her.

Trump agreed to provide four dates for a potential deposition, which is to be held on or before January 31, according to an order issued by New York Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schecter late on Friday, local time. Summer Zervos agreed to provide potential deposition dates as well.

Trump and Zervos were to be deposed by Dec. 6, but Zervos had asked for an extension of the deadline, and Trump agreed, the judge said.

Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice, claims Trump kissed and groped her before he was president. She sued him for defamation after he dismissed her allegations as lies.
