President-elect Donald Trump will have to testify in a lawsuit weeks before inaugurationby Circa News
Election 2016

Donald Trump is scheduled to testify at Trump Tower in January before he's inaugurated.

Donald Trump will have to deliver his deposition in a lawsuit tied to his Washington, DC hotel next month, according to Politico.

The deposition is related to Trump's $10 million lawsuit in DC against Topo Atrio, the restaurant he signed celebrity chef Jose Andres to run in his new hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Andres and the company backed out of the deal in June 2015 citing Trump's anti-Hispanic rhetoric throughout his election campaign.

Celebrity chef Jose Andres has not shied away from taking his 'testimony' to Twitter. 

Trump's attorneys have scheduled the deposition to take place in the Trump Tower in New York "for security reasons."

The restaurant group has asked for the deposition to last up to seven hours, to which Trump's attorneys have argued against.

Trump's team have also asked to limit certain questions.

The president-elect has several outstanding legal entanglements that will not go away after Inauguration Day.
