“I’m Here Because Donald Trump Raped Me”: E. Jean Carroll Testifies in Long-Awaited Trial

HeadlineApr 27, 2023

Here in New York, E. Jean Carroll took the stand Wednesday in her civil lawsuit against Donald Trump for battery and defamation, telling a court, “I’m here because Donald Trump raped me.” Carroll has accused Trump of raping her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s and subsequently accusing her of lying about it. Carroll told jurors, “He lied and shattered my reputation, and I’m here to try and get my life back.” The judge in the case warned Trump may have engaged in jury tampering for posting on his Truth Social site that the case was a “made-up SCAM” and a “witch-hunt.”
