A writer who claims Donald Trump sexually assaulted her during an interview and a former saleswoman who says he groped her on an airplane are among the witnesses whose testimony in a defamation suit he is seeking to put on hold.

The women are set to be deposed by lawyers for New York columnist E. Jean Carroll, who alleges the former president raped her two decades ago in a department store dressing room and then defamed her by denying it. Her lawyers say the testimony will show there is a well-established pattern of Trump assaulting women. He denies it all.
