Donald Trump insults journalist who accused him of sexual harassment
Derogatory words against woman journalist and threatened to sue
1996 case raised again, former US President’s difficulties increased
New York. Trump has questioned the case of a female journalist who accused former President Donald Trump of rape. Excerpts from Trump’s testimony released Friday by a court in a lawsuit filed by columnist E. Jean Carroll include derogatory words against the female reporter and threats to sue. Excerpts from Trump’s statement recorded in October in a lawsuit filed by Jean Carroll have been publicly released after a federal judge rejected a request by Trump’s lawyers to keep it sealed.
According to Trump’s statement, “The woman said that I did something to her that never happened. Nothing like this had happened. I don’t know anything about this woman.” These excerpts highlight a heated argument between Trump and one of Carroll’s lawyers. Portions of the statement were released the same day that federal judge Lewis A. Kaplan also denied a request by Trump’s lawyers to dismiss Carroll’s two lawsuits alleging rape and defamation. A hearing is expected in this regard in April.

Trump said he never met Carroll at a store in Manhattan in the mid-1990s. In his day-long testimony, Trump attacked Carroll for portraying him as a rapist. In 2019, a book by Carroll was published, in which she alleged that Trump had harassed her in the dressing room after they met at a Manhattan shop in late 1995 and early 1996.
