Updates: E. Jean Carroll v. Donald J. Trump

“I’m here because Trump raped me,” Carroll testified. “He lied and shattered my reputation and I’m trying to get my life back.”

On Wednesday, writer, E. Jean Carroll, took the stand to testify in a civil lawsuit against the disgraced, twice impeached, one term, and now indicted (with probably more to come), former president, Donald J. Trump. E. Jean Carroll has accused the disgraced former president of raping her a New York department store in the mid-1990s.

Carroll appeared on the witness stand shortly after the judge in the case admonished TFG’s lawyer for TFG’s latest outburst on his wannabe Twitter platform, (un)Truth Social. Carrolls’ attorney, Roberta Kaplan told Judge Kaplan, who is not related to her, about the posts before the first witness took the stand in the case.

Judge chides Trump for calling rape trial ‘made up SCAM’ on social media

The post could expose the former president to yet more legal liability, the judge told Trump’s lawyer.

Judge Kaplan called Trump’s Truth Social posts “a public statement that seems entirely inappropriate” and warned it may cross the line into “tampering” with the case.

“We’re getting into an area where your client may or may not be tampering with a potential source of liability,” the judge said.

Tacopina told the judge he’d tell Trump — who wasn’t present in court — to “refrain from making posts” about the case.

“I hope you’re more successful,” the judge said.
