E. Jean Carroll
Is Sponsored By Democrats
It all began because "the book was not selling"
E. Jean Carroll
Meet Donald Trump’s accuser, E. Jean Carroll. She lives by herself, in a house in the middle of the forest called “The Mouse House.” She says she sleeps with (an illegal) gun beside her bed. She named her cat, "vagina" and her dogs are named “tits” and “bloody.” She paints the rocks and trees in the forest surrounding her home in a lovely blue color.
She claims Donald Trump raped her, but doesn't remember when.
This woman is unstable, yet, the enemies of Donald Trump are presenting her as a “credible person.”
Carroll once told Anderson Cooper that rape was "sexy" and a "fantasy." Her remarks creeped Cooper out so much that he cut her off and went to a commercial.
In 2019, E. Jean Carroll published her book, "What Do We Need Men For?" and in conjunction with the release of Carroll's book, which wasn't selling well, an excerpt of the book, containing the allegations that Donald Trump raped her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room sometime in the 1990s, was published in New York magazine.
Carroll says she doesn't remember what year it happened. She didn’t yell for help. She doesn't remember how she got home, but she knows Donald Trump raped her.
“I wish to heaven we could give you a date,” Carroll said. “I wish we could give you a date.”
This is a critical lapse in her memory, for if she provided a date, Donald Trump, who operates his life on a schedule, could have easily placed himself far away from Bergdorf Goodman during the event, but, alas!
"I don't remember."
When asked why she didn’t scream if she were being sexually assaulted in the busy store, she answered:
“I’m not a screamer. You can’t beat up on me for not screaming.”
Carroll addressed the courtroom:
“Women don’t come forward. One of the reasons they don’t come forward is because they’re always asked, why didn’t you scream? You better have a good excuse if you didn’t scream.”
At that point, Carroll screamed:
“I’m telling you: He raped me whether I screamed or not!”
The alleged Trump episode is one of six incidents Carroll details in the article of attacks on her by men over the course of her life. Carroll also accused CBS chief Les Moonves of trying to rape her in an elevator. There were four others that also couldn't keep their hands off of her.
The Initiator -- anti-Trumper, George Conway
Carroll said she was at a party and met George Conway.
He took me aside. He had his iPad. He explained the difference between a criminal case and a civil case. He took me through the steps. He said he could suggest an attorney -- an "excellent lawyer" -- Robbie Kaplan.
The Money -- Democrat Reid Hoffman
Carroll is financially backed by billionaire and Democrat mega-donor Reid Hoffman. Hoffman publicly admitted this fact nine months ago in a LinkedIn post, saying that he prefers to “talk about values and ideas over commenting on specific gifts that I’ve made.”
While Trump’s legal team has characterized my support of Carroll’s lawsuit as “secret,” I want to be clear that I’ve never taken any steps to hide the financial support that I have provided to this lawsuit after it started. Secondly, and more importantly, while media attention is focused on this specific story, let’s not forget the overall point: the rule of law and the ideal that our courts are a mechanism of justice for all citizens, not just those with enough money and power to rig the game in their favor.
Hoffman, who has donated to President Biden’s campaign as well as a pro-Nikki Haley PAC, also has ties to Epstein, even visiting “Little Saint James, which is wildly ironic, given Hoffman’s supposed devotion to championing women.
The governor changed the law so Carroll could sue Trump
Carroll, said she helped New York Democrats change a state law so she could sue.
Democratic New York Governor, Kathy Hochul, signed the "Adult Survivors Act" into law in 2022. The legislation allowed a one-year "window" for survivors of sexual assault to sue their alleged abuser “regardless of when the abuse occurred.”
Carroll’s lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, said. “E. Jean actually helped to get that law passed” and were it not for that change in the law, Carroll never would have been able to bring suit.
The first trial
E Jean Carrol could have brought her case in the 90s, the 00s, the 10s, but, no! Carroll waited 30 years -- right when Trump was preparing to run for president.
What's worse is that the courts accepted the case.
A less-than-stable woman who doesn't remember anything about the event except it was Trump happens to run into a dedicated anti-Trumper with a handy-dandy iPad and a lawyers phone number -- a wealthy Democrat meddler and a governor who just happens to change a state law, all converge at one critical moment in time.
What are the odds?
The first trial verdict
Last May, a federal jury found that Donald Trump did not rape Ms. Carroll in a department store dressing room in the 1990s. Trump was actually found innocent, but the judge hit him with an "unsportsmanlike conduct" penalty -- the judge decided Trump had abused and defamed Carroll. He said bad things about a woman who claimed he raped her.
The jury did not find Trump liable for rape. The judge added the liability for sexual assault after the jury said "No" to the charge. It's totally sketchy and suspicious, but that's the Democrats for you.
The whole point was to find Trump guilty of something.
Despite the finding of the jury, the Judge Lewis A. Kaplan still insisted, “Indeed, as the evidence at trial recounted below makes clear, the jury found that Mr. Trump in fact did exactly that.”
No! They didn't! The jury found Trump, "not guilty," but the judge just couldn't let it go.
The irony of all of this is that it's Trump's reputation that has been tarnished. There are millions on social media who firmly believe Trump was convicted of rape. Now, to add insult to injury, they want to "punish" Trump by awarding Carroll tens of millions.
The penalty phase of Carroll’s civil case against the former president kicked off last week, with this second lawsuit stemming from comments Trump made in 2019, rejecting Carroll’s claims of rape.
The current trial is simply to decide how many millions Trump will have to pay nutbag Carroll because he "defamed" her -- because he challenged her claim of sexual assault.
If all of this stands the inevitable appeal, Carroll will be able to hire people to paint her rocks and trees blue.
Side note: MSNBC reported that prospective jurors stood in line to be chosen and appeared highly motivated to "punish" Donald Trump.
It's a sickness.
Judge Kaplan is carefully managing the current trial. In the left sidebar is a very long "X" thread linking to a transcript of the trial. Paging through the thread demonstrates that Trump's attorney is facing two opponents -- Carrol's attorney and Judge Kaplan.
Kaplan is stage managing the trial and is picking an choosing what the defense may say and what exhibits it may present. For example, Judge Kaplan wouldn't allow the jury to see Carroll’s tweets that go to the character and stability of the woman..
The Judge ruled they were too old, which is ironic, ironic given the twenty-plus year date of her rape claims.
Carroll has destroyed evidence
Under cross-examination by Trump’s lawyer Alina Habba, Carroll admitted she deleted emails under subpoena. Carroll said she didn’t give them to her lawyers because she didn’t want to upset them.
The judge wants the jury to ignore critical evidence that may have been exculpatory and that, in our former country, would've been cause for a mistrial?
Judge Kaplan is actually acting as co-counsel for the plaintiff. It’s bizarre, but predictable, given the real reasons for this trial -- "get Trump" -- whatever it takes.
In a letter to Judge Kaplan on Friday, Habba reiterated the request for a mistrial and said without the emails there is no way to prove when the threats occurred or if they occurred at all. Trump has argued that Carroll immediately began receiving negative messages after an excerpt of Carroll’s book containing the assault allegations was published on New York magazine’s website -- long before Trump issued his first statement. His attorneys argued Trump shouldn’t be held responsible for what other people did.
Habba said if the judge does not grant her request for a mistrial, he should not allow Carroll to seek damages based on death threats.
“Plaintiff’s entire claim for emotional harm is undermined because it would show that Plaintiff was receiving death threats before President Trump ever spoke about her,” Habba wrote.
Habba is also requesting the judge instruct the jury that since Carroll deleted emails they should “presume that the electronic mail messages were unfavorable” and therefore not supportive to Carroll’s claims.
No timeline, no evidence; well beyond statute of limitations; the jury found Trump, "not guilty; the judge said he was guilty anyway -- and all using nothing more than the testimony as an obviously mentally ill women who has destroyed key trial evidence.
Carroll has admitted to illegally deleting and destroying emails that she says would prove she received death threats. She says she sleeps with an illegal gun as a result. If Judge Lewis Kaplan did the right he would have immediately dismissed the case, but he won't. The whole point of this exercise is to damage Trump.
They needed to force and feign a guilty verdict in order to delegitimize any defense of him. They didn't get it, but proceeded as though they did anyway. Now New York has set a precedent -- not only for him, but for all of us.
The sad and scary thing about Carroll and the unbelievably corrupt anti-Trump judicial system is that it confirms that a batshit crazy lunatic can literally fabricate a story out of whole cloth, and if the judicial system is motivated and corrupt enough, they will punish an innocent man -- and gladly -- the end justifying the means..
Our legal system is collapsing under the lawfare that is enabling this government to do things that used to be "illegal" while giving the appearance of legality -- think Gen. Michael Flynn.
Bottom line -- Trump was innocent of rape, but the judge says he defamed Carroll, so, now Trump has to pay Carroll millions.
Meanwhile the media continues to smear Donald Trump as a "rapist."
