Writer E. Jean Carroll was allegedly raped by Donald Trump decades ago, but thanks to a recent New York survivors’ law, she is able to hold him accountable. Of course, the ex-president has managed to stall the defamation lawsuit she filed against him. And he tried to hide behind his presidency but to no avail.  Now Carroll has filed a second defamation lawsuit against the former resident in the White House.

The columnist alleged the original incident occurred in one of Manhattan’s fine women’s clothing store’s dressing room. This was in the “mid-1990s, according to The Guardian.

Now Carroll has taken the opportunity to file a second defamation lawsuit under the Adult Survivors Act. Why? Trump could not keep quiet after he appeared under oath for his deposition in the first defamation suit. The former columnist did not pause after the ex-POTUS went after her again on his Twitter-lite sight, Truth Social:

‘Trump posted two video clips mocking Carroll, who has alleged that Trump raped her in a dressing room in New York’s Bergdorf Goodman department store in the mid-1990s. His angry denials following the accusations damaged her reputation, her defamation suit argues.’

A renowned law professor at Harvard Laurence Tribe said, according to The Huffington Post:

‘Trump just blasted his own defense apart in the defamation suit brought by E. Jean Carroll.’

Carroll’s attorney notified U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan of the new lawsuit via letter, The Law and Crime reported.

The writer’s first defamation lawsuit was filed in 2019, while Trump was still in office. The former president was infamously tone-deaf when he tried to defend himself:

‘[Carroll’s] not my type.’

The ex-president managed to repeat some of the identical attacks on Carroll on Truth Social that got him his first defamation lawsuit:

‘[Trump called this action. a complete con job [and a ] hoax and a lie. While I’m not supposed to say it, I will. This woman is not my type!’

The ex-president’s attorneys have fought along the line that Trump was protected by his presidency. However, that is not the case now. And an earlier court said that the alleged rape and defamation was outside of his presidential duties anyway.

Well-regarded Washington DC attorney George Conway tweeted tongue-in-cheek:

Absolutely brilliant. You issue a BRAND NEW statement REPEATING all the earlier defamatory statements, but since you’re no longer POTUS, you NO LONGER HAVE [the] DEFENSE you’ve been pushing for years.’

The columnist’s lawyers told Kaplan that the new defamation case would be in New York state court later in November.

President number 45 tried to delay the trial, but he was forced to appear at his deposition under oath in October in the first defamation case. Judge Kaplan denied Trump’s delay tactic:

‘[You can’t] run the clock out on plaintiff’s attempt to gain a remedy for what allegedly was a serious wrong.’
