Donald Trump trial: Defense dings Carroll’s rape story for ‘lack of details’

The courtroom drama continues as a nine-member jury hears E. Jean Carroll’s allegations that Donald Trump raped her over two decades ago in a Bergdorf Goodman department store. The former president’s defense team is already attacking the “lack of details” in Carroll’s account, with attorney Joe Tacopina arguing that his client should not be held liable for defamation damages due to Carroll’s own missing recollections of the alleged sexual assault. But Carroll is not backing down, and the trial promises to be a high-stakes battle with potentially millions of dollars at stake.

The jury selection process was rigorous, with U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan carefully screening around 100 potential jurors to ensure that they were not associated with extremist groups or biased against either party. The final nine jurors come from a diverse range of backgrounds, including security, library sciences, and healthcare.

Throughout the trial, the jurors will be kept anonymous and shielded from media coverage, with Kaplan warning them not to consume any news related to the case. Carroll is expected to attend the duration of the trial, while Trump’s attendance remains uncertain.

This is a case that has been brewing for years, with Carroll initially filing a lawsuit against Trump in 2019 and then filing a new lawsuit after he allegedly defamed her in an online post. The stakes are high, and the outcome of this trial could have far-reaching implications for both parties. Stay tuned for updates as the drama unfolds.
