time for a dna sample, she saved the dress she was raped in by the serial rapist Trump.
ya again right wingers spent 6 years with independent counsels on clinton on civil matters, but right wingers were fine with the rapist trump not being deposed.

Notice there was barely a peep about this dna on the dress in the media even when trump was the illegitimate president.

Trump may soon have to answer rape allegations under oath


Quote:
- During a December visit to New York City, writer E. Jean Carroll says she went shopping with a fashion consultant to find the “best outfit” for one of the most important days of her life - when she’ll sit face-to-face with the man she accuses of raping her decades ago, former President Donald Trump.

The author and journalist hopes that day will come this year. Her lawyers are seeking to depose Trump in a defamation lawsuit that Carroll filed against the former president in November 2019 after he denied her accusation that he raped her at a Manhattan department store in the mid-1990s. Trump said he never knew Carroll and accused her of lying to sell her new book, adding: “She’s not my type.”

She plans to be there if Trump is deposed.

“I am living for the moment to walk into that room to sit across the table from him,” Carroll told Reuters in an interview. “I think of it everyday.”

Carroll, 77, a former Elle magazine columnist, seeks unspecified damages in her lawsuit and a retraction of Trump’s statements. It is one of two defamation cases involving sexual misconduct allegations against Trump that could move forward faster now that he has left the presidency. While in office, Trump’s lawyers delayed the case in part by arguing that the pressing duties of his office made responding to civil lawsuits impossible.

“The only barrier to proceeding with the civil suits was that he’s the president,” said Jennifer Rodgers, a former federal prosecutor and now an adjunct professor of clinical law at the New York University School of Law.

“I think there will be a sense among the judges that it’s time to get a move on in these cases,” said Roberta Kaplan, Carroll’s attorney.

An attorney for Trump and another representative of the former president did not respond to requests for comment.

Trump faces a similar defamation lawsuit from Summer Zervos, a former contestant on his reality television show “The Apprentice.” In 2016, Zervos accused Trump of sexual misconduct, saying that he kissed her against her will at a 2007 meeting in New York and later groped her at a California hotel as the two met to discuss job opportunities.

Trump denied the allegations and called Zervos a liar, prompting her to sue him for defamation in 2017, seeking damages and a retraction. Trump tried unsuccessfully to have the case dismissed, arguing that, as president, he was immune from suits filed in state courts. His lawyers appealed to the New York Court of Appeals, which is still considering the case. Zervos filed a motion in early February asking the court to resume the case now that Trump’s no longer president.

Zervos and Carroll are among more than two dozen women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct that they say occurred in the years before he became president. Other accusers include a former model who claims Trump sexually assaulted her at the 1997 U.S. Open tennis tournament; a former Miss Universe pageant contestant who said Trump groped her in 2006; and a reporter who alleges Trump forcibly kissed her without her consent in 2005 at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

Trump has denied the allegations and called them politically motivated.

In September, after several unsuccessful attempts by Trump’s lawyers to get Carroll’s case dismissed or delayed, U.S. Justice Department officials under his administration took the unusual step of asking that the government be substituted for Trump as the defendant in the case. Justice Department lawyers argued that Trump, like any typical government employee, is entitled under federal law to immunity from civil lawsuits when performing his job. They argued that he was acting in his capacity as president when he said Carroll was lying.

Legal experts said it was unprecedented for the Justice Department to defend a president for conduct before he took office. When Judge Lewis Kaplan of the Federal District Court in Manhattan rejected that argument, the Justice Department appealed. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has yet to rule on it.

It’s yet to be seen whether Justice Department officials under President Joe Biden, who took office last month, will continue to defend the case on Trump’s behalf. The White House and the Justice Department declined to comment.

If the appeals court upholds Judge Kaplan’s decision, it would likely clear the way for Trump to be deposed by Carroll’s lawyers.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE DNA
Carroll’s lawyers are also seeking a DNA sample from Trump. Carroll says she still has the dress she was wearing when Trump allegedly attacked her.

“I hung it in my closet,” she said.

Carroll said she randomly crossed paths with Trump in the Bergdorf Goodman’s store in the mid-1990s. Carroll, who hosted a TV talk show at the time, said Trump recognized her. The two chatted, she said. Trump asked her to pick out a gift for an unidentified woman, and they eventually ended up in the lingerie department. Carroll said Trump asked her to try on a body suit, which she refused to do, joking that he should try it on instead. Trump then grabbed her arm and maneuvered her into a dressing room, she said. He closed the door, pinned her against the wall and raped her, according to Carroll’s complaint.

Carroll said she told two friends about the alleged attack shortly after it happened, but did not report Trump to police, fearing retribution from the wealthy and well-connected businessman. Decades later, Carroll went public with her story in a June 2019 New York magazine article, adapted from a new book, “What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal.”

She said she was inspired to recount the incident by the #MeToo movement, which emboldened women to share their experiences of sexual assault and harassment. In photos shot for that story, Carroll, at the request of the magazine’s photography director, wore the same black Donna Karan dress that she said she had worn on the day that Trump allegedly assaulted her.

When Carroll filed her lawsuit later in 2019, her lawyer, Kaplan, had a guard escort her to retrieve the dress from her closet for forensic testing. An analysis concluded no semen was found on the dress, but the DNA of an unidentified male was detected on the shoulder and sleeves, according to the Jan. 8, 2020 lab report, which was reviewed by Reuters.

If the dress does contain traces of Trump’s DNA, it would not prove his guilt. But a match could be used as evidence that he had contact with the dress and to help disprove his claims that he never met Carroll, according to two forensic experts not involved in the case.

“How his DNA got on that dress would be the argument,” said Monte Miller, a biochemist who runs a DNA analysis consultancy and previously worked at the Texas Department of Public Safety’s State Crime Laboratory. “It’s for the attorneys and the courts and everybody else to argue about why it’s there and how it got there.”

Carroll said she’s confident the DNA on the dress belongs to Trump and wants her day in court. She said she now sleeps with a gun next to her bed because she has received death threats since publicly accusing Trump.


“This defamation suit is not about me,” said Carroll, who meets regularly with other women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. It’s about every woman “who can’t speak up.”

John Dean Warns Trump That Prosecutors Are Closing In: ‘Only A Matter Of Days’


Quote:
John Dean, the White House counsel to President Richard M. Nixon who was once dubbed the “master manipulator” of the Watergate scandal, says he knows legal trouble and former President Donald Trump is in it deep.

Dean shared a report on former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen, who has been meeting with the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is investigating Trump for potential fraud, including tax fraud. It was Cohen’s seventh meeting with the DA’s office.

Dean pointed out on Twitter the significance of all those meetings:


The DA’s office last month obtained years of tax data from Trump’s accounting firm after the Supreme Court ruled against his efforts to block that access. In an interview with Reuters, Cohen called those files the “holy grail.”

Cohen was Trump’s longtime personal attorney and fixer before turning on him in 2018 and testifying before Congress. He also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress and campaign finance violations for arranging the hush-money payments from Trump to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison but was released into home confinement last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump card for Manhattan D.A.? Money man eyed in probe


Quote:
The pressure against citizen Trump is rising as his former lawyer Michael Cohen speaks with the New York’s D.A. office for the eighth time for their probe into the former president’s finances. Cohen has revealed investigators are asking about the Trump Organization's CFO Allen Weisselberg. At the same time, Weisselberg's former daughter-in-law is cooperating with investigators and speaking out on the probe in a new NBC News exclusive. MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber and MSNBC analyst Joyce White Vance discuss the developments.

Prosecutors question ex-wife of the son of Trump Organization CFO

The ex-wife of a Trump organization employee says she has been in contact with prosecutors from two different New York investigations into Donald Trump and his company.

A spokesperson for Jennifer Weisselberg said criminal investigators with the Manhattan District Attorney's office began questioning her in December, and investigators with a New York Attorney General's office civil probe interviewed her in September.


Weisselberg's ex-husband Barry has for years managed an ice skating rink in Central Park that is operated by the Trump Organization under a contract with New York City. Barry Weisselberg's father, Allen, is the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization.

The Manhattan District Attorney has been in contact with Jennifer Weisselberg multiple times, according to her spokesperson, who said investigators have sought information about Allen Weisselberg and documents about a Trump-owned apartment she and her ex-husband lived in for years.

"They have had forensic accountants reviewing that and other paperwork," said the spokesperson, Juda Engelmayer.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office and Attorney General's office declined to comment, as did an attorney for Allen Weisselberg. An attorney for the Trump Organization did not return a request for comment.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance first began investigating Mr. Trump in 2018, and initially targeted hush-money payments made during the 2016 campaign to adult film star Stormy Daniels by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. However, Vance's office has indicated in court filings that the investigation has since widened to look at possible crimes as wide-ranging as fraud and tax evasion.

In recent meetings with the D.A.'s office, Jennifer Weisselberg was interviewed by Mark Pomerantz, a former federal prosecutor with experience in complex financial and organized crime cases, who was hired by the office in February to work on the Trump investigation.

Among the topics Pomerantz had questions about was the Central Park South apartment that Jennfier Weisselberg said was presented as a gift to the couple by Mr. Trump after their marriage. She said they neither owned the apartment nor paid rent, though they paid about $400 per month for utilities. City records show Mr. Trump sold the apartment in 2014 for $2.85 million.

If the apartment was a gift, Mr. Trump or his company would have needed to pay taxes on it. If living in it was a perk of employment with the Trump organization, the Weisselbergs would have been responsible for paying taxes on the property, said John Lieberman, a managing partner at the New York accounting firm Perelson Weiner, LLP.

"Here's a simple way to think about it. It's like when a building super gets an apartment for free. There's a fair market value for the use of that apartment, and it's includable in their wages, and taxable," Lieberman said.

How Jennifer Weisselberg could cause Donald Trump's downfall


Quote:
Jennifer Weisselberg spent last week making the rounds at media outlets to announce that she has been interviewed "multiple times" about the finances of former President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization. Word on the street is that prosecutors in the Manhattan district attorney's office are looking to flip the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, whose son Barry was married to Jennifer for 14 years.

Allen is Trump's longest-serving executive at the Trump Organization; he has gone from being just a bookkeeper in 1973 to his current role atop the company. He is known for his loyalty and years of service not only to the former president but also to his father, Fred Trump. Barry and Jennifer divorced in 2018, and by her own admission, the "bitter" divorce battle resulted in her losing custody of her children. So while this is all very dramatic, the question remains: Why would Manhattan DA Cy Vance be interested in what Allen Weisselberg's former daughter-in-law has to say?

Quote:
Consider the following: Weisselberg told NBC News that she believed that as a wedding present, Trump gifted her and her ex-husband an apartment overlooking Central Park. For seven years, they did not pay any rent and had to pay only for their utilities. Their apartment sold for $2.85 million in 2014 and was listed at $4,950 a month for rent before the sale, according to New York City housing records. Her ex-husband, Barry, managed Trump's ice rink, Wollman Rink, in Central Park before the city ended its contract with the Trump Organization this year. Generally speaking, things like free rent are viewed as taxable income for employees, unless there is a tax exception — which seems doubtful here.

Weisselberg also claims that Trump and her former in-laws paid for most of their living expenses while they were married. She told Reuters that she has provided to Vance's team, among other things, the tax and financial records for her and her ex-husband. Prosecutors can now not just look for improprieties in reporting in those filings but also compare them to the tax disclosures by Trump and the Trump Organization. (Weisselberg also said she has spoken with New York Attorney General Letitia James, whose office is conducting a civil inquiry into the Trump Organization.)

Thanks to Jennifer, one of Allen Weisselberg's children may wind up looking down the barrel of potential criminal charges. Nothing incentivizes a parent more than having a child in jeopardy. And if Allen can save his son by helping Vance, then maybe Trump has cause for concern.

since it is child rape I guess it needs to be added to the leader that trump was all for. again so many females claimed trump was a criminal and a 14 year old rapist.

here is right wingers following suit. a huge trump supporter..

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2021/03/31/kevin-mccarthy-matt-gaetz-investigation-allegations-serious/4823063001/


The New York Times first reported Tuesday that the Department of Justice was investigating Gaetz on charges of sex trafficking, accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.


Former Attorney General William Barr was briefed on the inquiry last year, a person familiar with the matter told USA TODAY. The source, who is not authorized comment on a pending investigation, said federal authorities had opened a full investigation at the time.

State prosecutors in Manhattan investigating former President Trump and the Trump Organization have subpoenaed the personal bank records of the company’s chief financial officer and are questioning gifts he and his family received from Mr. Trump, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The executive, Allen Weisselberg, has overseen the Trump Organization’s finances for decades and may hold the key to any possible criminal case in New York against the former president and his family business.

Attorneys for Trump accuser E. Jean Carroll ask court to keep DOJ from defending case


Quote:

A federal appeals court should deny the Justice Department's attempt to substitute for former President Donald Trump in a defamation lawsuit brought by former Elle columnist E. Jean Carroll, her attorneys said in a new court filing Friday night.

Instead, Carroll urged the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to affirm "Trump did not act within the scope of his employment as President of the United States when he repeatedly, willfully defamed a private citizen to punish and retaliate against her after she revealed that he had sexually assaulted her decades before he took office."

Carroll sued the former president for defamation after he accused her of playing politics and lying about an alleged 1990s rape in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman.

Last October, U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan rejected the Justice Department's bid to replace Trump as the defendant, ruling that his statements about Carroll were not made as part of his official duties and that the legal theory cited by the DOJ does not apply to the president.

Columnist E. Jean Carroll’s Lawyers Say It Was ‘Wrong and Dangerous’ for Trump DOJ to Ask to Defend Him

Lawyers for ex-Elle columnist E. Jean Carroll say it was "wrong and dangerous" for the Justice Department under Donald Trump to ask to defend him in her case against the former president.

Carroll, 77, sued Trump, 74, for defamation after he tweeted she was "totally lying" when she accused him of raping her in a New York City dressing room in the mid-1990s. He also claimed Carroll was making the rape claim to try and sell her memoir.

Then last year, the Justice Department unusually asked the court if it could represent then-President Trump, arguing his comments fell under the scope of his White House duties.

The Associated Press reports a federal judge denied that request, but the DOJ appealed the ruling days before Trump left office in January. If the DOJ represented him and he lost the case, U.S. taxpayers would be on the hook for paying Carroll in the lawsuit.

Carroll's lawyers — led by New York attorney Roberta Kaplan — say if the DOJ represents Trump, it could lead to a new rule that allows federal officials to essentially defame anyone on social media or in comments to the press and categorize it under their official duties.

"That rule is both wrong and dangerous, and this Court should reject Appellants' effort to avoid answering for Trump's conduct," Carroll's lawyers write in a new filing reviewed by PEOPLE.
