New Rape Lawsuit from US Writer Jean Carroll to Trump
US journalist and author E. Jean Carroll has filed a new lawsuit in New York against former US President Donald Trump, whom he accused of rape.
American writer E. Jean Carroll filed a lawsuit in New York against former US President Donald Trump, whom he accused of rape.
E. Jean Carroll alleges that he was sexually assaulted by Trump in the dressing room of a luxury department store in New York in 1995.
Carroll, a former columnist for Elle magazine, filed the rape case under a new law that went into effect yesterday in New York state.
The new law allows victims of rape in the state to sue, no matter how long it takes.
Carroll’s lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, said they wanted to hold Trump accountable for his actions.
“This case is, unfortunately, an example of abuse of the new law and risks harming real rape victims,” said Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba.
Carroll said that he helped Trump choose gifts in the store, that they entered the dressing room for a while, and claimed that Trump raped her.
The American writer explained that he had told two of his friends what had happened to him.
What is Trump saying?
Donald Trump, on the other hand, denies the rape accusation Carroll first raised against him in 2019.
Trump, who was the President of the USA at the time, said that he did not know Carroll and said, “His allegations are fictitious. He is not my type anyway.”
Carroll then filed a defamation and defamation lawsuit, asking Trump to retract his words.
Trump gave an affidavit on this.
The first hearing of this case will be held on February 6th.
Investigations are also ongoing regarding former US President Trump’s allegations that he forged accounts and took some confidential official documents to his home in Florida when he left the White House.
It is also being investigated whether Trump was linked to the attack on the US Congress on January 6, 2021.
