Donald Trump Testifies Briefly in E. Jean Carroll Defamation Case

Former US President Donald Trump testified briefly in a defamation case brought against him by writer E. Jean Carroll, who is seeking over $1 million in damages. Trump, who maintains that he never met Carroll, gave a testimony that lasted just four minutes. The case stems from Carroll’s accusation that Trump sexually assaulted her in the 1990s, which he has denied. While Trump testified, his former trade adviser, Peter Navarro, was sentenced to four months in jail for contempt of Congress, and other significant legal cases involving Trump were also mentioned.

  • Donald Trump testified for four minutes in a defamation case filed by E. Jean Carroll.
  • Carroll has accused Trump of sexual assault in the 1990s and is seeking over $1 million in damages.
  • Trump reiterated his claim that he never met Carroll and stated that his actions were meant to protect his family and presidency.
  • The jury must decide the amount of damages Trump should pay, as a judge has already ruled his statements defamatory.
  • Peter Navarro, Trump’s former trade adviser, was jailed for four months for ignoring a court subpoena related to the investigation of the 2020 election result.
  • The court did not allow Trump to deliver extended monologues, focusing strictly on the case’s facts.
