Trump defamation lawsuit includes claims of rape and battery

A defamation lawsuit to be filed against former President Donald Trump includes claims of sexual assault.

The New York lawsuit will include six criminal charges, including Elle columnist Jean Carroll’s allegation that he raped her in the 1990s.

The claims

“Trump’s physical contact with Carroll was offensive and wrongful under all the circumstances,” the lawsuit says, according to the Washington Examiner. “Trump continued to attack and rape Carroll despite her attempts to fight against him.”

“The former president’s actions constitute sexual offenses, including rape in the first degree, rape in the third degree, sexual abuse in the first degree, sexual abuse in the third degree, sexual misconduct, and forcible touching, according to the lawsuit,” it added.

The details

“Beginning the day she plans to file suit, the state’s Adult Survivors Act will go into effect,” New York Daily said.

“The new law gives adult sexual assault survivors the opportunity to file civil claims against their abusers or an institution that may have protected them, regardless of when the statute of limitations expired,” it added.

The lawsuit comes just days after Trump announced plans to run for president again in 2024.

Trump has already blasted the legal action as a political hit job designed to keep him from making America great again.

The courts will have the final say though as the case may require Trump to show up to court to testify under oath in the near future.
