a reporter who claimed that Trump raped her in

the 1990s is relaying her complaint in New York.


US journalist E. Jean Carroll

who accused former President Donald Trump of raping her in the 1990s, has re-filed a civil lawsuit against him, thanks to a new law in New York protecting victims of sexual assault.


She filed a double lawsuit for rape and defamation by Carroll, 78

against Trump

  • 76, appearing in Manhattan federal court since 2019
  • and each testified under oath in
  • October before a New York judge.



In the defamation case

  • E. Jean Carroll, a former author and columnist in IL magazine
  • a legal action in November 2019 against Donald Trump
  • accusing him of defaming her because he called


the allegations of her rape in a dressing room measuringa

New York store in 1995 or 1996 a "total lie."



The then-Republican president replied that he had never met her and that she "didn't like him", and his lawyers claimed that he was protected in 2019 thanks to his immunity as president of the United States.


For the rape charges

  • Carroll was unable to submit an official grievance in
  • 2019 because the alleged facts had passed
  • for a long period of time.



But on November 24

a new new New York state law came into force allowing victims of sexual abuse for a year, reinvigorating potential old complaints and claiming civil action.


The Kaplan Hecker & Fink law firm

whose services Carroll and the federal Manhattan judiciary have hired, published several court documents accusing Trump of "rape" and demanding a civil trial in 2023, in order to obtain a malfunction and damage.



In the complainant

who is now admissible and recounts all the facts

Donald Trump accuses that "27 years ago

he grabbed at the Bergdorf Goodman luxury store on Fifth Avenue in New York, Jane Carroll, with his shoulder on the wall of a room to measure and rape clothes".



Carroll remained silent for more than 20 years

before telling her story in a book at the end of 2010, with the emergence of the "MeToo" movement launched in 2017, to reject violence against women.


While I respect and admire those who speak out

this case is unfortunately a misrepresentation of the object of the law, which creates a dangerous precedent and may delegitimize the testimony of the real victims.



In October, the former President called the accusations a "hoax and a lie."


This new defamation of Trump on

October 12 on his social site Truth Social


which mocks this alleged rape, also allows Carroll to re-animate the defamation incision in her legal action against Trump accused this time as an ordinary citizen without presidential immunity.
