A New York judge on Friday ordered President Donald Trump to provide video testimony as part of an upcoming lawsuit brought by protesters who say they were assaulted by Trump's security guards during a 2015 protest outside of Trump Tower.
Judge Doris M. Gonzalez wrote in her ruling that Trump's testimony is "indispensable" to the trial and so he must provide video testimony before the trial is set to begin Thursday. The Washington Post first reported the judge's ruling.
The trial centers around a protest in September 2015 in front of Trump Tower in New York City where two protesters wore parody Ku Klux Klan outfits to protest Trump's rhetoric on illegal immigration, according to the initial court filing.

Subpoena the security guards or the building manager, not the president of the US, interfering with the performance of his presidential duties.
“Because New York and California actually run the United States...”
Trump can tell him to piss up a rope.
Judge cant legally order it and certainly cant enforce it. This is bullsheit order. Either by an idiot judge or a commie one. Or both
Some of these judges need to be relieved of their duties. Bright and early Monday morning this order will be sticken down.
Along with that should be her future paychecks.
And if he doesn’t show up, what does she do? Send who to get him? For the first time in my life I’d actually side with federal law enforcement and would love to see what the Secret Service would do. ha ha ha ha ha ...
How about, send me some questions and I’ll think about answering them. I’m the leader of the free world, I have more important things to worry about. On second thought I will testify, when my term(s) as President is up. So, I’m thinking I’ll be there in what, 2024. Maybe. Can’t say for sure. I don’t know.
first heard that phrase from a now long passed best friend of mine. whenever i occasionally use it now, people look at me with question marks in their eyes. are you, per chance, from eastern tennessee?
Well - Clinton was a sitting president and to some, the Paula Jones case was stupid and trivial...and he still had to give testimony. So - it's not unheard of.
So they think Trumps security wrongly roughed up KKK members?
This, after saying for years Trump is a white supremacist and closet KKK member?
This is priceless!
Big deal. I just ordered our President to give me a Million dollars. I expect the same response.
Now, the President is accountable to 30,000 state judges, in addition to 1,700 federal judges.
No, west coaster. Fled cali decades ago.
Can (and will) Barr order a judicial review of this judge?
Poor Doris,she’s got Shiff for brains and delusions of the hildebeast.
Trump didnt touch a single KKK protester.
“...a protest in September 2015...”
“...Trump’s testimony is “indispensable” to the trial and so he must provide video testimony before the trial is set to begin Thursday...”
They have had 4 years to get ready and now they want Trump to jump through their hoop in 6 days?
The term used to be fairly common in the military.
The phrase is not endemic to Tennessee. I grew up in the 50’s in the NY-NJ metropolitan area and heard the phrase back then.
