Again, Trump is found guilty of defamation against E. Jean Carroll!
Donald Trump has once again been found guilty of defamation against E. Jean Carroll, and a jury will be convened next January to determine the amount of damages, which will be added to the five million dollars already awarded to Carroll in the first trial she won last May.

In 2019, Carroll published a memoir entitled What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal, in which she details various experiences with men throughout her life.

In it, Carroll alleged that Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in the dressing room of a Bergdorf Goodman department store in the mid-1990s. She claimed that Trump, at the time a real estate mogul and TV personality, had forcibly kissed and sexually assaulted her.

Trump vehemently denied the allegations and said he had never met Carroll, despite a photo showing them together at a social event in the 1980s.

Carroll filed a defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump in November 2019, claiming that he had falsely accused her of lying about the incident and damaged her reputation.

In October 2020, the US Department of Justice, under the Trump administration, sought to intervene in the trial and defend Trump, arguing that he was acting in his official capacity as president when he denied Carroll’s allegations, but to no avail. The trial finally took place last May.

At the conclusion of the civil trial, Donald Trump was found guilty of sexually assaulting Carroll in the 1990s (not guilty of rape) and of defaming her in comments made in 2019 and 2022.

In addition, now, the judge also allowed E. Jean Carroll to include comments made by Trump at a CNN Town Hall hosted by Kaitlan Collins last May, just days after she lost her case against Carroll, in the second case.


“This woman, I don’t know her. I never met her. I have no idea who she is. I had a picture taken years ago with her and her husband, nice guy John Johnson. He was a newscaster, very nice man. She called him an ape, happens to be African-American. Called him an ape… the judge wouldn’t allow us to put that in. Her dog or her cat was named vagina, the judge wouldn’t allow to put that in. All these things, but with her, they can put in anything… Access Hollywood,” the former president said.

The trial scheduled to determine the amount of damages will take place on January 15, 2024.
