E. Jean Carroll, the magazine writer who has previously accused President Trump of raping her, is now attempting to sue him for allegedly damaging her career. As Mediaite reports:

E. Jean Carroll, the Elle Magazine writer who accused Donald Trump of sexual assault earlier this year, has filed a lawsuit against the president alleging that he damaged her career.

The New York Times reports that Carroll is pursuing a defamation suit, saying Trump hurt her reputation when he pushed back on her claims that he raped her in the 1980s at a New York City department store. Trump denied the allegation in June by saying Carroll is “not my type,” suggested that she’s an operative for his political foes, and accused her of trying to use “false stories” to sell her book.


The lawsuit says Carroll’s reader engagement dropped after Trump accused her of making up the story, and it blames the president for that by saying he “injured the reputation on which she makes her livelihood and attracts readers.” The lawsuit also called Trump’s defenses “fully consistent with his tried-and-true playbook for responding to credible public reports that he sexually assaulted women.”

“When Carroll’s account of what had happened to her was published, Donald Trump not only denied the rape, but denied ever having met Carroll or knowing who she was,” said Robbie Kaplan, Carroll’s lawyer. “But Trump knew his statements were false and defamatory — he knew who Carroll was that day at Bergdorf Goodman and he knows who she is now.”


Carroll's alleged rape account is highly questionable and has no evidence to back it up, the fact that she is now attempting to sue the President instead of things being the other way around is truly shocking.
