Donald Trump Completes Mandatory Presentencing Interview

The interview took less than 30 minutes of questioning

Donald Trump completed his mandatory presentencing interview Monday after less than 30 minutes of routine, uneventful questions and answers, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and did so on condition of anonymity.

The former president was quizzed by a New York City probation officer for a report, required by law, that trial judge Juan M. Merchan can use to help determine Trump’s punishment when he is sentenced July 11 in his hush money criminal case.

Monday's interview was conducted privately by video conferencing. Under state law, the resulting report, which may also include information about Trump's conviction, his social, family and employment history, and his education and economic status, will remain confidential unless the judge authorizes its public release.
