E. Jean Carroll and Her Anti-Trump Backers Cannot Be Trusted

Carroll's case against Trump exposes the partisan bias and injustice of our legal system.

In the recent, almost theatrical, trial against former President Donald J. Trump involving E. Jean Carroll, the outcome has been nothing short of a glaring miscarriage of justice, almost scripted like a poorly-written drama. The $90 million award to Carroll, a writer with a questionable past, isn’t just a failure of the legal system; it’s a stark illustration of the lengths to which Democrats will go to tarnish Trump’s image and impede his political ambitions.

Let’s dissect the absurdity of Carroll’s claim. Initially uncertain about the year of the alleged assault, changing it from 1994 to either the fall of 1995 or spring of 1996, Carroll’s story is fraught with inconsistencies. Her refusal to produce the so-called “evidence” – a Donna Karan coatdress, which later turned out to not even have been in production during the years she claimed the assault took place – casts further doubt on her story.

Carroll’s history of accusing multiple men of sexual misconduct, coupled with her bizarre statements and actions, paints a picture of an individual seeking attention rather than justice. The infamous CNN interview where she bizarrely claimed, “I think most people think of rape as being sexy,” speaks volumes about her perspective on such a serious issue.

The trial itself seemed less about justice and more about political theater. Judge Lewis Kaplan’s decision to exclude critical evidence that would have cast doubt on Carroll’s credibility, such as her sexually-explicit social media posts and peculiar behaviors, only adds to the suspicion that the trial was skewed from the start.

It’s imperative to consider the political undertones surrounding this trial. Carroll’s decision to sue Trump was encouraged at a party hosted by Molly Jong-Fast, a known anti-Trump figure. The involvement of George Conway, a staunch Trump critic, and Roberta Kaplan, a lawyer with a history of political bias, further indicates a trial tainted by political motivations rather than a quest for truth.

The involvement of Reid Hoffman, a significant donor to Trump’s political adversary Nikki Haley, in funding Carroll’s legal fees adds another layer of political intrigue to the trial. The connection between the financial backer and the political motivations behind this lawsuit cannot be ignored. Of course, Hoffman’s funding of the case might have been done to improve his image after it was revealed that he visited Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous island.

In essence, the trial and its outcome have less to do with justice for an alleged victim and more with a politically-motivated attack on Trump. It sets a dangerous precedent where allegations without substantial evidence can lead to ruinous consequences, influenced by political biases and personal vendettas. This case is not just a failure of the American legal system; it’s a warning sign of the lengths to which Democrats will go to destroy their opponents, regardless of the truth.
