FAST FIVE: Amazon Moves To Depose Trump In Lawsuit Over $10 Billion 'JEDI' Contract
Amazon also says it wants to depose former Defense Secretary Mattis.
Here are the topics AWS wants to cover in the deposition of Trump.
“Morover, President Trump has unique knowledge about whether he had other, previously undisclosed conversations with individuals not previously identified, and who therefore do not appear on the deposition list.” In a statement to CNBC, Amazon said “the preservation of public confidence in the nation's procurement process requires discovery and supplementation of the administrative record…” “President Trump has repeatedly demonstrated his willingness to use his position as President and Commander in Chief to interfere with government functions – including federal procurements – to advance his personal agenda.
The preservation of public confidence in the nation's procurement process requires discovery and supplementation of the administrative record, particularly in light of President Trump's order to 'screw Amazon.' The question is whether the President of the United States should be allowed to use the budget of the DoD to pursue his own personal and political ends.” The White House declined to comment to CNBC, and the White House reportedly refused to comment, as did the DoJ.
