Donald Trump Still Expected To Testify After Jean Carroll Rests Rape Case 

E Jean Carroll

According to CNN, both attorneys of former president Donald Trump and American Journalist Elizabeth Jean Carroll rested their cases on Thursday at the federal court in Manhattan. Jean had alleged Trump of raping her in a departmental store in the mid-1990s and later defamed her by declining her claim. Trump, on the other hand, defended himself by declining her claim as false accusations. 

District Judge Lewis Kaplan has kept a chance for Trump to reconsider, though Trump has renounced his position to testify in his defense. Judge Kaplan has emphasized Trump’s testimony before the court, by ruling out his team of lawyers to petition the court by 5 p.m. Sunday. Trump in an interview with reporters in Ireland on Thursday, has hinted at his possible appearance before the court. He has also called out Jean Carroll for making false accusations on him, and Judge Kaplan for being extremely hostile towards him.

Carol Martin Testified In Jean Carroll’s Defence 

American Journalist Carol Martin on Thursday testified of Jean with whom she was working together in the 1990s disclosing her right after the alleged molestation. According to Carol, Jean came to her house, after recording their shows at the studio. She recalled Jean as anxious and excitable, then Jean disclosed to her how Trump had raped her at the Bergdorf Goodman department store.

Trump’s defense lawyer Joseph Tacopina during Carol’s testimony disclosed a series of text messages between her and Jean, in which they can be found speaking ill about Trump for years to which Carol replied of she and Jean being liberal feminists they would often converse over climate change and politics. Experts expect up to $2.7 million as reparation charges to settle disputes and restore Carroll’s reputation.
