Trump is to be grilled in person in Manhattan, which James says is a decades-long pattern of financial misrepresentations in documents used by the Trump Organization to win hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks and bank loans.
The deposit was confirmed to Insider by a person with knowledge of the time; This week will be the latest in a rapid series of major legal hurdles for the former president.
On Monday, FBI agents searched Trump's home and office at his waterfront property in Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. On Tuesday, a federal appeals court ruled that Congress is entitled to Trump's tax returns.

Trump's attorneys then fought the subpoena in court for more than six months, but lost in both the state Supreme Court and the First Department's Appellate Division, both in Manhattan.
As a result of those court losses, the former president and his eldest son and daughter — Donald Trump, Jr. and Ivanka Trump — were scheduled to be impeached on July 20, 21 and 22. However, those dates were postponed with the AGs approval due to the July 14 death of Ivana Trump.
Donald Trump, Jr. and Ivanka Trump — who both served as executive vice presidents of the Trump Organization — sat down to testify last week.
Her brother Eric Trump, also a vice president of the company, invoked his 5th Amendment right more than 500 times while sitting for testimony from James in October 2020.
