E. Jean Carroll Accuses Abusive Assault Against Donald Trump – E. Jean Carroll’s new book excerpt published in New York magazine has accused abusive assault claims against President Trump and Leslie Moonves.
E. Jean Carroll Accuses Abusive Assault Against Donald Trump:
In an excerpt from E. Jean Carroll’s book, What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal, published in New York Magazine on Friday, she accuses that Trump assaulted her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-1990s. “Before I discuss him, I must mention that there are two great handicaps to telling you what happened to me in Bergdorf’s: (a) The man I will be talking about denies it, as he has denied accusations of misconduct made by at least 15 credible women,” Carroll writes. “And (b) I run the risk of making him more popular by revealing what he did.”
What E. Jean Carroll Writes:
The moment the dressing-room door is closed, he lunges at me, pushes me against the wall, hitting my head quite badly, and puts his mouth against my lips. I am so shocked I shove him back and start laughing again. He seizes both my arms and pushes me up against the wall a second time, and, as I become aware of how large he is, he holds me against the wall with his shoulder and jams his hand under my coat dress and pulls down my tights.
The next moment, still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his private part halfway—or completely, I’m not certain—inside me. It turns into a struggle. I am wearing a pair of high heels, which puts my height around six-one, and I try to stomp his foot. I try to push him off with my one free hand—for some reason, I keep holding my purse with the other—and I finally get a knee up high enough to push him out and off and I turn, open the door, and run out of the dressing room.
The whole episode lasts no more than three minutes. I don’t remember if any person or attendant is now in the lingerie department. I don’t remember if I run for the elevator or if I take the slow ride down on the escalator. As soon as I land on the main floor, I run through the store and out the door—I don’t recall which door—and find myself outside on Fifth Avenue.
Donald Trump’s Statement Against E. Jean Carroll:
“Regarding the ‘story’ by E. Jean Carroll, claiming she once encountered me at Bergdorf Goodman 23 years ago. I’ve never met this person in my life. She is trying to sell a new book—that should indicate her motivation. It should be sold in the fiction section.
“Shame on those who make up false stories of assault to try to get publicity for themselves, or sell a book, or carry out a political agenda—like Julie Swetnick who falsely accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh,” Mr. Trump continued in his statement. “It’s just as bad for people to believe it, particularly when there is zero evidence. Worse still for a dying publication to try to prop itself up by peddling fake news—it’s an epidemic.
“Ms. Carroll & New York Magazine: No pictures? No surveillance? No video? No reports? No sales attendants around?? I would like to thank Bergdorf Goodman for confirming they have no video footage of any such incident, because it never happened.
“False accusations diminish the severity of real assault. All should condemn false accusations and any actual assault in the strongest possible terms.
“If anyone has information that the Democratic Party is working with Ms. Carroll or New York Magazine, please notify us as soon as possible. The world should know what’s really going on. It is a disgrace and people should pay dearly for such false accusations.”
