Trump refused to testify in New York for hours

Former US President Donald Trump (76) repeatedly refused to testify for hours when questioned under oath by New York Attorney General Letitia James (63). “I’m just leaving the Attorney General’s office – a very professional meeting,” Trump wrote on Wednesday on the social network Truth Social, which he co-founded. The “New York Times”, citing Trump’s lawyer Ronald Fischetti, wrote that the ex-president had only answered one question for four hours – namely his name.

The newspaper reported that Trump issued a statement for the record in which he called the investigation into his business practices a continuation of “the largest witch hunt in our country’s history.” He accused James of having openly advertised “a policy of destroying my person” during the election campaign. Trump then exercised his constitutional right to refuse to answer if he could incriminate himself. After the survey began, he always responded with the words “same answer”.
