How E Jean Carroll won her case against Donald Trump
This week, a jury in a civil trial in New York found that Donald Trump sexually abused and defaming writer E Jean Carroll. It ordered that the former US president should pay a total of $5 million in damages to the woman – the bulk of the money in compensation for calling her a liar.
The assault took place in the 1990s in the changing room of a department store. The jury found that he did not rape Carroll who bravely withstood three days’ of cross examination in the Manhattan courtroom.
Reporter Molly Crane-Newman was in court for the entire trial – she explains why it took nearly 30 years for Carroll to get justice, how the jury responded to the evidence put before them, including that infamous “grab ‘em by the pussy” 2005 tape. And what happens next.
