Trump forced to answer questions under oath in Summer Zervos defamation case

President Donald Trump will provide written responses to questions in a defamation lawsuit brought by Summer Zervos, according to court documents obtained by CNN.

President Trump speaks during a fundraiser in Sioux Falls, S.D., September 7, 2018.

Zervos sued Trump for defamation in 2017 after he labeled such allegations lies and retweeted a post calling her claims a hoax.

Zervos and several other women who made similar allegations came forward after a 2005 videotape of Trump bragging about groping women surfaced in early October.

U.S. met Venezuelan military about ousting Maduro
According to the Times , one of the Venezuelan officials who took part in the talks is on the US government sanctions list. Maduro routinely accuses the US government of plotting against him, and this is likely to embolden those claims.

Zervos, an Apprentice contestant in 2005, had accused Trump of kissing her against her will at his NY office in 2007 and later groping her at a meeting at a hotel in California. Trump's lawyer Marc Kasowitz could not immediately be reached.

According to the Post, New York state rules require Trump's answers to be sworn or verified, meaning that he could be open to perjury charges if the answers are false.

In an August 29 letter to Judge Jennifer G. Schecter released Friday, Wang wrote that lawyers for Trump and the Trump Organization were stonewalling her document requests.

Adult film-star Stormy Daniels, also known as Stephanie Clifford, is engaged in a highly publicized legal battle to invalidate a 2016 nondisclosure agreement that binds her from speaking about a sexual relationship she claims she had with Trump in 2006. Trump has denied the allegations.
