E. Jean Carroll Testifies in Defamation Trial Against Donald Trump

E. Jean Carroll testified in a New York federal courtroom against Donald Trump in her second civil defamation suit, alleging that Trump defamed her after she accused him of sexual assault in the 1990s. The judge reprimanded Trump for making loud criticisms of Carroll during her testimony, threatening to remove him from the courtroom. Trump, who has already been found liable in a previous lawsuit for assaulting and defaming Carroll, could potentially testify on the damages in this separate incident of defamation.

  • E. Jean Carroll testified about the impact of Donald Trump’s 2019 statements calling her a liar and denying her allegations.
  • Carroll described receiving a deluge of attacks and death threats from Trump’s supporters, which affected her sense of security and professional life as a journalist.
  • During the testimony, Trump was reprimanded by the judge for disruptive behavior and was warned he could be removed from the courtroom.
  • The trial is focused on damages for a separate incident of defamation, as Trump has already been found liable for the initial defamation and assault in a prior case.
  • Trump has until Monday to decide if he will testify regarding the damages, and he is not allowed to dispute the facts of the case already established.
  • There is anticipation for a potential press conference by Trump, where he may address the ongoing legal proceedings.
