Trump Suffers Massive Loss After Actress Affair

According to Mediate, former President Donald Trump has encountered another legal setback as a New York judge dismissed his defamation countersuit in the ongoing legal battle with writer E. Jean Carroll. Furthermore, the testimony from this case has been ruled admissible for use by the Manhattan district attorney in a separate case involving Stormy Daniels and hush money payments.



The rulings, issued by Judge Lewis Kaplan, have dealt a blow to Trump’s legal defense. In the defamation countersuit, Trump claimed that Carroll’s statements alleging he had raped her were defamatory. However, the court upheld that Carroll’s claims were supported by the evidence, and the jury’s verdict in a related case established the fact that Trump had “raped” her according to the legal definition in New York law. Judge Kaplan clarified that conventional definitions of rape align with Carroll’s allegations, making Trump’s defamation claim untenable.

Additionally, the judge’s second ruling has significant implications for a different case involving Trump. Testimony from the civil case, which Trump’s legal team had sought to block, has been granted for use by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in the Stormy Daniels case. This case centers on allegations of falsifying business records and includes 34 felony charges against Trump.

These legal developments highlight the complex and interconnected nature of the legal challenges faced by the former president. The dismissal of Trump’s defamation countersuit and the allowance of testimony for another case underscore the potential legal ramifications stemming from his actions and allegations made against him. As these legal proceedings continue to unfold, they contribute to the ongoing legal scrutiny surrounding Donald Trump’s presidency and post-presidential activities.
