Columnist E. Jean Carroll, who accused President Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s, is suing the president for defamation.
Carroll, 75, accused Trump of sexually assaulting her when she was 52 in a Manhattan Bergdorf Goodman dressing room. The accusation came ahead her book released July 2 titled “What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal.” An excerpt of that book describing the alleged sexual assault was published in New York Magazine on June 21.
The columnist for Elle Magazine filed a lawsuit Monday against Trump, alleging that he damaged her reputation and career when he denied her allegations in June, The New York Times reported.
Trump’s statement denying the sexual assault “are fully consistent with his tried-and-true playbook for responding to credible public reports that he sexually assaulted women,” the lawsuit reads, according to The NYT. The president denied sexually assaulting Carroll multiple times, adding on June 24 that “she’s not my type.”
