Donald Trump sexually abused E Jean Carroll, jury finds

Carroll is not the only woman to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.

Over two dozen women have come forward with accusations against Trump in recent years.

The alleged incidents stretched as far back as the 1970s, with accusations that Trump reached up their skirts, touched, or kissed them without their consent.

As he did with Carroll, Trump has denied all the allegations, and has claimed women who spoke out were lying or politically motivated.

Some of these women told their stories during the 2016 election. Jessica Leeds said that Trump had groped her without consent on an airplane in the 1970s.

Leeds appeared as a witness in Carroll’s trial and told the jury that Trump “was trying to kiss me, trying to pull me towards him. He was grabbing my breasts. It was like he had 40 zillion hands. It was like a tussling match between the two of us.”

Rachel Crooks, who spoke to the New York Times, accused Trump of kissing her without permission during a Trump Tower encounter in 2005.

Jill Harth sued Trump for sexual harassment in 1997. She said that Trump pushed her against a wall, put his hand up her skirt, and forcibly kissed her.

But no woman has come close to earning $5m in damages from Trump for their alleged encounters, E Jean Carroll is the first.

There were “a lot of issues” with it, he said, including that the legal teams should have been able to know the identities of the jurors to assess potential biases.

Trump is “ready to move forward. He wants to fight this on appeal.”

When asked why Trump didn’t testify, he doubled down on what he said in court.

Having Trump there would have been “more of a circus”. “And what more can he say other than ‘I didn’t do it?'”

It won’t derail his run for president, Tacopina said.
