(GoRealNewsNow.com) – BREAKING NOW: Former President Donald Trump is going on offense and taking legal action against E. Jean Carroll, a writer who had earlier sued Trump for sexual assault.
Now, Trump is turning the tables by suing her for defamation — damaging his reputation with false statements.
In the earlier trial, a jury determined Trump was responsible for sexually assaulting Carroll but did not find him guilty of rape.
Carroll had accused Trump of sullying her name because he repeatedly denied her allegations.
However, Carroll went on a TV show after the trial and firmly stated that Trump did, in fact, rape her.
Trump’s lawsuit documents state, “In response to that specific question, the person being counter-sued [Carroll] ignored the jury’s decision that the counter-claimant [Trump] did not rape her, and she replied: ‘Oh yes he did, oh yes he did.’”
The previous trial concluded in May, directing Trump to pay $5 million to Carroll as compensation. She had alleged that Trump raped her in a New York City department store in the 1990s.
Now, Trump has launched a defamation lawsuit against Carroll. He claims she damaged his reputation by going on CNN and insisting that she was raped, even after the jury’s decision did not uphold that claim.
