Trump questioned under oath over rape accuser's defamation case

Feb 16,2020 3:38 am

Former US President Donald Trump has answered questions under oath in a lawsuit brought against him by an advice Columnist who says he raped her.

E Jean Carroll alleges The Attack took place in a New York luxury Department Store dressing room in the mid-1990s.

Mr Trump denied The Claim and Said Ms Carroll was lying, prompting her to sue him for defamation.

Ms Carroll 's attorney did not release details of The Deposition , but Said it took place on Wednesday.

A civil trial in the case is scheduled for 6 February.

" We're pleased that on behalf of our client, E Jean Carroll , we were able to take Donald Trump 's deposition today, " a spokesperson for Law Firm Kaplan Hecker & Fink Said .

" We Are not able to comment further. "

Mr Trump's attorney, Alina Habba, Said in a statement: " As we have Said All Along , my client was pleased to set the record straight today.

" This case is Nothing More than a political ploy like many others in the long list of witch hunts against Donald Trump . "

It is unclear what Mr Trump Said during The Deposition , or whether he spoke In Person or remotely. According to CNN, he participated from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

In a 2019 article for New York magazine, Ms Carroll - a longtime Elle advice Columnist - Said she had a chance encounter with Mr Trump in late 1995 or early 1996 at the Department Store Bergdorf Goodman .

She Said she was helping him pick out A Gift and the two of them ended up in a dressing room, where she alleges that he raped her. She says she was 52 and he was around 50, and Mr Trump was married to Marla Maples .

At The Time , Ms Carroll also Said she told Two Friends about The Incident . One advised her to go to The Police , but The Other warned her to Keep Quiet , saying: " Forget it! He has 200 lawyers. He'll bury you. "

Mr Trump quickly dismissed the allegation, accusing Ms Carroll of lying to sell her book.

She then filed a defamation lawsuit against Mr Trump while he was US president, saying his comments had harmed her reputation.

Mr Trump's lawyers tried to delay The Deposition , but Judge Lewis A Kaplan of the Federal Court in Manhattan last week denied The Request .

Mr Trump had responded to that legal setback by taking to Social Media to say " this 'Ms Bergdorf Goodman ' case is a complete con job".

More Than a dozen women have previously made sexual misconduct allegations against Mr Trump, which he has denied.

Last month, Ms Carroll 's lawyers Said she intends to sue Mr Trump a second time under a New Law that gives adult sexual assault victims a one-time opportunity to file civil lawsuits even if the statute of limitations has expired.

She plans to file the new lawsuit on 24 November, her attorney Said .

This is the latest in a string of legal challenges facing Mr Trump.

Among other cases, he is facing allegations of fraud by New York prosecutors, who filed a lawsuit against him in September, and is being investigated by The Department of Justice for removing allegedly classified government documents from the White House and storing them at Mar-a-Lago.

Mr Trump has denied wrongdoing in all cases.
