Head of Trump's legal team warns E. Jean Carroll not to make major purchases

 February 7, 2024

Author E. Jean Carroll was in the news late last month after a federal court ordered former President Donald Trump to pay her over $83 million.

However, the head of Trump's legal team insists that her client is set for a big win when the case is appealed. 

Lawyer tells Carroll not to make any major purchases

That was the message lawyer Alina Habba put forward during an interview with Newsmax host Eric Bolling earlier this week.

"On appeal, those rulings will come up, the one-sidedness will come up, and we will prevail," the former president's lawyer insisted.

"My advice to her would be not to go ahead and purchase any motorcycles or penthouse apartments," Habba went on to assert.

Habba's comments came in response to a recent interview in which MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asked Carroll if she planned to use the financial windfall to "help shore up women’s rights."

Carroll offers to take MSNBC host on shopping sprees

"Yes, Rachel! Yes!" Carroll replied excitedly. "I had such, such great ideas for all the good I'm gonna do with this money."

"First thing, Rachel, you and I are gonna go shopping!" the author continued. "We’re gonna get complete new wardrobes, new shoes, motorcycle for [Carroll’s attorney Shawn] Crowley, a new fishing rod for Robbie [Carroll’s attorney Roberta Kaplan]."

"Rachel, what do you want?" Carroll asked. "A penthouse? It’s yours, Rachel! Penthouse and France? You want France? You want to go fishing in France? No?"

Habba says Carroll "here to get a check" and wants "publicity"

Habba likened Carroll's bizarre remarks to something out of "an epic Twilight Zone where no rules were allowed but for the other side."

"And then she goes out there and gloats and says she’s gonna buy France, and a wardrobe, and a motorcycle, and this and that," Habba recalled.

"I want everyone to remember, and I said this in my closing argument to the jury, she's here to get a check and after this she will continue," Trump's attorney asserted.

Habba went on to insist that Carroll "didn’t care, you know, about the defamation," adding, "She didn’t. She cared about the publicity."

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
