A federal judge Wednesday ruled that the Democratic National Committee may depose Sean Spicer about his election-night activities and whether those violated a 35-year-old consent decree between the parties, Politico reports.

In what could be described as a blabbermouth moment, Spicer detailed in an interview how he, then communications director and strategist for the Republican National Committee, spent time on the fifth floor of Trump Tower during election night.

One problem: RNC members weren't allowed on the fifth floor, given its use as the polling and data operation for President Donald Trump's campaign, to be compliant with the consent decree, which bars party members from ballot security and voter suppression efforts, Politico reported.

Once Democrats got wind of the interview, they took it to Judge John Michael Vazquez.

"It would seem as though there's a lot unanswered by the article and a deposition of Mr. Spicer would be able to address those clearly," Vazquez told lawyers during a conference call Wednesday, Politico reported.

Vazquez also allowed for a narrow and targeted search of Spicer's emails from that day, Politico reported.
