President Trump, according to Axios, has taken the official step of filing a motion to appeal the $5 million damages awarded to E. Jean Carroll in the defamation and sexual abuse case where he was found liable. This move aligns with Trump’s previous statements during the CNN Republican Town Hall and on Truth Social, expressing his intention to challenge the court’s decision. Trump maintains his innocence and seeks to dispute the verdict, believing he is not guilty of the alleged offenses. Through the appeal process, Trump aims to contest the court’s ruling and pursue a more favorable outcome regarding the damages awarded to Carroll.
In Trump’s appeal, a key argument is likely the lack of corroborating witnesses, which raises doubts about the truthfulness of Carroll’s allegations. It is claimed that the witnesses were informed about the alleged sexual assault after it had taken place, meaning they were not present during the incident. There is no clear evidence regarding the timing of when they were informed about Carroll’s assault claims. This absence of concrete evidence and the reliance on secondhand information form the basis of Trump’s case.
According to RSBN:
Breitbart reported that E. Jean Carroll made the allegations to promote her book in 2019 and hired a Democrat activist to represent her in court. That same report also revealed that the judge overseeing the case, Lewis Kaplan, has connections with another of Carroll’s attorneys.
Furthermore, the jury itself was anonymous, so determining whether or not any of the jurors held a bias against President Trump was impossible for his legal team to decipher, via RSBN.
The case was brought up during President Trump’s recent town hall appearance on CNN and the audience supported him despite the network’s obvious bias. In fact, they considered Carroll’s claims to be laughable, according to Business Insider.
President Trump continues to receive support and is not backing down. He mentioned his appeal in a Truth Social post on Wednesday, stating, “HOPEFULLY JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED ON APPEAL!”
During a discussion about E. Jean Carroll’s credibility, Trump highlighted some of her controversial statements regarding sexuality. Carroll described rape as “most people think of rape as being sexy” and encouraged listeners to “think about the fantasies” during her appearance on Anderson Cooper’s talk show, offering a non-traditional perspective on the subject. Trump also pointed out that Carroll had once owned a cat named “vagina,” which some find peculiar. These details raise concerns about Carroll’s views and judgment, leading many to question the reliability of her accusations against Donald Trump, as well as question if E. Jean Carroll has different views on sexuality than the average individual.

Following the announcement of the verdict, Trump took to Truth Social to share his response to the viral clip featuring Anderson Cooper’s interview with E. Jean Carroll. He mentioned listening to the tape where Carroll made controversial remarks, including stating that “rape is sexy.” Trump asserted that he has no personal connection with Carroll and only encountered her briefly in a crowded celebrity photo line. He expressed skepticism regarding Carroll’s credibility and her ability to convince a judge and jury. Trump raised questions about Cooper’s abrupt call for a commercial break during the interview and Carroll’s noticeable change in demeanor afterward, suggesting that something might have transpired during the break to cause such a significant shift.
“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?”
Numerous media outlets have noted that there is a lack of witnesses or evidence supporting the details of the alleged incident, which supposedly occurred in an empty fitting room. Trump, during his appearance on CNN, highlighted the improbability of the store being completely vacant, contradicting Carroll’s earlier claim. Additionally, Trump pointed out that Carroll modified her account of the alleged crime after realizing that the dressing room doors were locked by store employees. These observations raise further doubts about the credibility and consistency of Carroll’s narrative.
