Amazon wants to question Trump over role in $10 billion Defense contract

CNBC reported that Amazon wants a court to allow them to question President Trump about his involvement in the bidding process for the $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract awarded to Microsoft. Amazon has sued and is looking to ask Trump and six others about private conversations, instructions given related to the award and ’efforts to harm Amazon and AWS.’

Oh well Amazon. I like your company but no, you don't get to "depose" politicians; you are a corporation and should have ZERO ability to pretend that you have the same rights as actual humans.

having used both AWS and Azure in the government sphere i can say with total certainty i prefer Azure 10x over, this isnt a case of anti-amazon bias (and if it was then who cares, a contract award is a contract award) but rather a case of product functionality
