Trump Responds to Verdict of E. Jean Carroll Case on Truth Social
Former President Donald Trump has responded to the verdict of the case filed by E. Jean Carroll through his social media platform, Truth Social. Trump expressed his lack of knowledge about the accuser, referring to the accusation as false and fabricated, and expressed hope for justice to be served on appeal.
“I HAVE NO IDEA WHO THIS WOMAN, WHO MADE A FALSE AND TOTALLY FABRICATED ACCUSATION, IS. HOPEFULLY JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED ON APPEAL!”
Trump’s initial statement was made soon after the trial where he claimed that he had no idea who the woman was and referred to the verdict as a disgrace, continuing to label the investigation as the greatest witch hunt ever.
“I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHO THIS WOMAN IS. THIS VERDICT IS A DISGRACE – A CONTINUATION OF THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT OF ALL TIME!”
Jury Finds Trump Liable for Sexual Abuse and Defamation in E. Jean Carroll Case
Following a two-week trial, yesterday, a jury reached a verdict in the trial involving E. Jean Carroll, a former journalist and author, and former President Donald Trump. Although the jury did not find Trump guilty of rape, the most serious accusation made against him. However, 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, it was announced yesterday that 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.”
Questions Surround E. Jean Carroll’s Credibility Following Anderson Cooper Interview
During her previous appearance on Anderson Cooper’s talk show, Carroll made comments that cast doubt on her credibility by suggesting a non-traditional interpretation of the term “rape.” She asserted that “most people think of rape as being sexy” and encouraged listeners to “think about the fantasies.” These remarks have caused many to question the legitimacy of her allegation against Donald Trump.
Here is Donald Trump’s rape accuser E. Jean Carroll that the left won’t stop talking about.
She doesn’t appear to know what rape means:

“The word ‘rape’ carries so many sexual connotations, this was not sexual.”

Trump responded to the viral clip on Truth Social, stating that he listened to the Anderson Cooper tape of the Carroll interview where she said “rape is sexy,” and other incriminating remarks. He claimed that he does not know Carroll and never met her, except on a crowded celebrity photo line, and believes that she is not credible or convincing to a Judge & Jury. Trump questioned why Cooper suddenly called for a commercial break and why Carroll seemed to be a different person after the break, suggesting that something may have occurred during the break to cause such a drastic change.
“After listening to the Anderson Cooper tape of the Carroll interview where she said “rape is sexy,” and other totally incriminating things, it is not possible to believe that this woman, who I do not know and have never met before (except on a crowded celebrity photo line), could be credible or convincing to a Judge & Jury. Why did Cooper SUDDENLY call for a commercial break, and why was Carroll a totally different person after the break? What took place during the break for such drastic change?”
