Access Hollywood Tape Excluded from E. Jean Carroll’s Defamation Case Against Trump

by Jessica

The controversial “Access Hollywood” tape featuring Donald Trump’s lewd comments will not be presented to the jury in E. Jean Carroll’s defamation case against the former president, as reported by The Gateway Pundit.

Last year, Clinton-appointed Judge Lewis Kaplan had ruled that the tape, in which Trump made explicit remarks, could be played at the civil trial. The judge asserted that even from the “Access Hollywood” tape alone, a jury could reasonably find that Trump had admitted to past contact with women’s genitalia without their consent.

However, Carroll’s lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, recently announced that the tape will not be presented to the jury. Fox News reported that two other women who accused Trump of abuse will also not be included in the trial. This decision implies that Trump’s testimony in the case may be presented earlier than anticipated, possibly on Monday, just one day before the Republican primary in New Hampshire.

Roberta Kaplan argued that she wants the trial to remain “focused” on Carroll’s specific accusations, without delving into Trump’s other alleged sexual misconduct.

In 2019, E. Jean Carroll accused Donald Trump of raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the 1990s. It’s worth noting that Carroll has faced scrutiny for her mental health, with previous statements indicating that she fantasizes about rape, as revealed in an interview with CNN.
