Trump talking about his defamation case outside court

Jean Carroll is a renowned journalist. She accused former president Donald Trump of raping her in the mid-1990s. After that Donald Trump extremely defamed her publicly. The trial for writer E. Jean Carroll’s defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump started this week.

The former president has already made a habit of talking about the case outside the courtroom as he blabbers about all the defense statements and whatnot in a post-hearing press conference that took place at a campaign rally, and on Truth Social.

Carroll’s attorney would be using his words as evidence

He keeps repeating the claim that he never knew Carroll and did that again. He stated that her allegation of sexual assault which a previous jury found him liable for, was “fabricated.” He even accused her of deleting relevant evidence. Carroll’s attorney responded on Saturday that she would be using his words as evidence.

Carroll’s lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, notified US District Judge Lewis Kaplan in the court filings that she intends to submit several pieces of evidence on Monday for the ongoing defamation trial. Carroll’s lawsuit revolves entirely on the allegation that Trump defamed her. He claimed that she lied about him raping her in a Manhattan department store in the mid-1990s.

However, a spokesperson for Roberta Kaplan declined to provide comment on this statement. Trump had after a testy first day in court on Wednesday as reported by one of the exhibits pointed to a post-hearing press conference.

Trump called the case a “fabricated story”

Trump has claimed that he has no idea who she is. He then added that the case was “a rigged deal and it is a made-up, fabricated story.”

During the conference, he accused Carroll of deleting massive amounts of evidence. Alina Habba, Trump’s lawyer, asked for a mistrial on Friday, where she argued that Carroll got rid of important evidence as she deleted emails that contained death threats against the former Elle columnist.

Trump put up a Truth Social on the day Kaplan filed her letter of intent to submit more evidence is also included in the exhibits.

“Until the filing of this ridiculous lawsuit against me, I knew nothing about this woman, never heard of her, never touched her, had nothing to do with her,” a Saturday post from Trump’s Truth Social account said.

Trump called the allegations a “witch hunt”

Trump continued to attack E. Jean Carroll on social media, even before his day in court, and went to the extent of calling the writer’s allegations a “fake story” and a “witch hunt.”

However, a jury in May previously found Trump liable for sexual abuse and defamation. The case was regarding one of two lawsuits Carroll filed against Trump in 2022 under the New York Adult’s Survival Act. It provided sexual misconduct accusers one year to file a civil lawsuit even if the statute of limitations has expired.

The current trial is for the first lawsuit that Carroll filed in 2019. It will only cover what damages Trump must pay as compensation. A spokesperson for Trump has not returned a request for comment.
