Breaking Update

Following a two-week trial, a jury reached a verdict in the trial involving E. Jean Carroll and former President Donald Trump. Although the jury did not find Trump guilty of rape, he was found liable for both sexually abusing and defaming Carroll. The decision was reached after a mere three hours of deliberation. The verdict is civil, not criminal, meaning that Trump will not face any imprisonment.

As a result of the verdict, Carroll will receive $5,000,000 in damages.

Carroll had accused Trump of raping her in a Manhattan department store dressing room between 1995 and 1996. During a deposition, Trump referred to Carroll’s accusation as a “hoax” and claimed that she was “not his type.”

Donald Trump’s Legal Battle Against E. Jean Carroll

On Tuesday, the opening arguments for a civil lawsuit against former President Donald Trump began in Manhattan. The plaintiff, E. Jean Carroll, a 79-year-old former columnist, accused Trump of raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman department store changing room in the mid-1990s. While Trump denies the allegations, his lawyer claimed that Carroll was motivated by money and fame.

Trump’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, stated that there was no evidence of the assault, and that Carroll was abusing the system for money, political reasons, and status. Tacopina also claimed that Trump’s previous comments about the case were not defamatory, but rather his personal opinion.

The trial, which is not criminal in nature, is part of a barrage of legal woes in an ongoing witch hunt that threatens to derail Trump’s potential 2024 run for a second presidential term. Nonetheless, the trial is likely to last one to two weeks, unlike Trump’s other trials, which appear to be stretched out for as long as possible.

Carroll’s Accusation Against Trump

Carroll, who was in court Tuesday, claims that the attack happened after Trump asked her for advice on buying a women’s lingerie gift. Carroll’s lawyer Shawn Crowley told the Manhattan court that the moment they were inside the dressing room, everything changed, and Trump was almost twice her size. She accused Trump of forcibly raping and groping her, and her suit seeks unspecified damages for “significant pain and suffering, lasting psychological and pecuniary harms, loss of dignity and self-esteem, and invasion of her privacy.”

During a previous appearance on Anderson Cooper’s talk show, Carroll made comments that raised doubts about her credibility. She seemed to have a unique interpretation of the word “rape” that deviated from common understanding. In her comments, she stated “I think most people think of rape as being sexy,” then added, “think about the fantasies.” These remarks have led many to question the validity of her accusation against Donald Trump.

Defamation Against Carroll

Carroll initially sued Trump for defamation in 2019 but was unable to include the rape claim because the statute of limitations for the alleged offense had expired. However, a new law took effect in November 2020 in New York that gave victims of sexual assault a one-year window to sue their alleged abusers decades after attacks may have occurred. Lawyers for Carroll filed a new suit that accused Trump of battery and defamation. The defamation charge came after Trump denied the alleged rape and referred to Carroll as a “complete con job.”

Trump holds similar opinions about the case today, calling the case a “fraudulent & false story–Witch Hunt” as well as a “SCAM,” as he took to Truth Social this morning to comment, saying:

“The E. Jean Carroll case, Ms. Bergdorf Goodman, is a made up SCAM. Her lawyer is a political operative, financed by a big political donor that they said didn’t exist, only to get caught lying about that. Just look at her CNN interview before & after the commercial break – Like a different person. She said there was a dress, using the ol’ Monica Lewinsky “stuff”, then she didn’t want to produce it. The dress should be allowed to be part of the case. This is a fraudulent & false story–Witch Hunt!”

They got caught lying! The Miss Bergdorf Goodman case is financed by a big political donor that they tried to hide. Does anybody believe that I would take a then almost 60 year old woman that I didn’t know, from the front door of a very crowded department store, (with me being very well known, to put it mildly!), into a tiny dressing room, and …. her. She didn’t scream? There are no witnesses? Nobody saw this? She never made a police complaint? If I was seen there with a woman-BIG PRESS. SCAM!”

Witch Hunt Against Trump Continues

The lawsuit is part of a series of legal problems facing Trump, including his recent arraignment on criminal charges related to a hush-money payment made to a porn star just before the 2016 election. He has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts. Moreover, Trump is also being investigated over his efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss in Georgia, his alleged mishandling of classified documents taken from the White House, and his involvement in the storming of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The Jury

The jury, made up of six men and three women, will decide whether Trump is guilty and how much in damages to award Carroll. No criminal prosecution can stem from the Carroll case, but if Trump loses, it will be the first time he has ever been held legally liable for an allegation of sexual assault. Trump has provided sworn testimony in the case but is not expected to take the witness stand during the trial as Carroll’s lawyers have said they do not intend to call him. The judge has promised the jury anonymity.


  1. LISTEN UP….There is NO Evidence to put TRUMP at the DRESSING RM. NO VIDEO. NO NOTHING. The WOMAN Can NOT Recall the DATE…TIME and YR the incident took PLACE. I served JURY DUTY before…in this CASE KEY Evidence is MISSING. PREZ TRUMP was RAILROADED just like the OATH KEEPERS and PROUD BOYS. WHO overtakes a GOVT using just their BAREHANDS???? Something is NOT RIGHT in this PICTURE. The CAPITOL POLICE still owe the BABBITT Family a BIG CK for WRONGFUL DEATH for ASHLI. From SamuraiQueen aka CHIAKIA. 😄😄😄😇😇😇😉😉😉

  2. The United States Justice system as gone to hell in a hand basket! If you really look at her why would you take more than three seconds to do so. All this was about MONEY and she (would guess is a Dem) wanted some of his at any cost to him. Well sorry to say she got and if you think that is the proper thing to do you were on this jury. So wrong in so many ways. Keep watching the news she will do something else in a very short period of time! Again, it will be about MONEY!

  3. A Manhattan jury, that says it all. Crooked judge, crooked prosecutor, crooked jury. There was absolutely no way Trump could win this. They stacked the deck against him with lies and corruption. I wonder how much the state paid those crooked jurors to take it up their bums? Still, it isn’t enough to get him off the ballot in 2024.

  4. Trump has Now been recognized in Court as a Sexual Pretender. He should be required to Register as a Sexual Offender. Sexual Pretenders normally have to go under restrictions letting ware they can go without permission, Must be under supervision, limit ware he can go and who he can and can not be allowed to be around, like schools.

  5. Dear Mr. Trump: They will never let you go, especially when you become President again. So please continue with your agenda. And please add my suggestion to create a new Union with the Red States and a bullet proof Constitution.

  6. His Legeal team better appeal and get this moved to a different VENUE. This stuff is getting crazy, Our courts have no business going past the original limitations statutes nor attacking someone because they are rich or of or support a different political base. The Supreme Court needs to step up and address this crazy nonsense. Just like Bragg, He has a political promise to keep so he has altered or changed the laws to go after President Trump while allowing violent crime and reducing Feloneys to Mistimeters for the left. What the heck is America thinking? Even weapons, people, proper parenting, and teaching along with supported good law enforcement are the answer to gun violence, Not promoting crime or allowing criminals to walk. The Media is a BIG PART of the PROBLEM!

  7. America can not recover from the damage Biden has inflicted (at least not for many years to come) on the country, in particular the zillions of illegal immigrants who will milk the economy for years to come.
    Also there are too many Demo-rats (and Republicans) in government left to keep the Deep Swamp alive.
    What the USA needs is a president who will radically weed out that filth and have them put behind bars, and round up every illegal without a SSA card and send them back without mercy. They are criminals who have violated America’s laws. Period.

  8. Yup. all greedy women has to do nowadays is to accuse poor Trump of rape, with no evidence .and get millions from biased Democrat juries’ judgement. How corrupt and disgusting are these people.

    1. Yes, and everybody should know by now what Democrats since JFK are all about. They’re getting more and more corrupt with every election.
      Obama Inc was the first open Marxist who wrote the partiture for Biden, a rotten-to-the-core criminal.
      As a people Americans have only themselves to blame. They put them there.
