Trump rape prosecutor E. Jean Carroll was fired by ELLE after her name was ‘dragged through mud’ by the president seven months after she accused him of raping her.
Carroll accused Trump of raping her in a dressing room in Bergdorf Goodman in the 1980s in June last year. She has been prosecuting him ever since, the couple getting caught up and down legally.
On Tuesday, Carroll tweeted that she was fired by ELLE, the magazine for which she wrote an advisory column for 26 years.
“Because Trump ridiculed my reputation, laughed at my appearance and dragged me through the mud, ELLE fired me after 26 years. I don’t blame Elle.
“It was the great honor of my life to write” Ask E. Jean. ” I blame @ realdonaltrump, “she said.
E. Jean Carroll publicly accused Trump of rape last June and then prosecuted him in November after calling her a liar
Carroll received this e-mail from ELLE’s Executive Managing Editor on December 11 stating that her contract would be terminated after 26 years
ELLE did not comment on its claims and did not immediately respond to questions from DailyMail.com on Wednesday.
The revelation that she was fired was included in court documents filed Tuesday by her lawyer, Roberta Kaplan.
Carroll’s allegation against Trump was published last June in an excerpt from her book that was published by New York Magazine.
She said it happened in 1996. She had met Trump in the luxury department store and he recognized her in her advisory column.
After she asked her to help him choose a gift for a woman, he took her to the lingerie department and asked her to fit an item he had selected, she claimed.
She then claimed that he had raped her in the dressing room after a “colossal battle.”
Carroll tweeted this Tuesday after her lawyers had taken the email in court on Tuesday
Trump violently denies it and said he doesn’t even remember he had met her.
After his denial, Carroll prosecuted him for libel.
To fight the trial, Trump is trying to postpone it. His lawyers say that her case should not be continued until that of Summer Zervos – a student participant who also claims that he has attacked her – has been resolved.
That case is also awaiting a decision from the New York Court of Appeals as to whether or not a sitting president can be summoned.
Kaplan said in her Tuesday submissions that Trump is trying to block both cases.
In a statement to DailyMail.com, she said: “Our client has filed this lawsuit to prove that Donald Trump lied about sexual abuse and to restore her credibility and reputation.
“From the very beginning, Trump has tried every tactic that lawyers can come up with to put this case in his tracks and prevent the truth from coming out.
“His last attempt – a motion to stay our client’s case until the New York Court of Appeal is likely to decide the Summer Zervos case after November 2020 – is another obvious delay tactic that is not based on the law and Like his previous attempts to crack this case, the court will reject it. “
Carroll describes the ‘attack’ in more detail in her book.
Carroll claims that Trump raped her in a dressing room in Bergdorf Goodman in the 90s
“He pulls open the overcoat, unzips his pants, pushes his fingers around my private area, pushes his penis halfway – or completely, I’m not sure – into me.
“It will be a colossal struggle.
“I am wearing a pair of sturdy black patent leather four-inch Barney’s high heels, which sets my height around six-one, and I am trying to stamp his foot. I try to push it off with one free hand – for some reason I keep holding my bag by the other – and finally I get a knee high enough to push it out and off and I turn, open the door and run out of the dressing room.
“The entire episode takes no more than three minutes. I don’t believe he ejaculates. I no longer know if there is a person or supervisor in the lingerie department.
“I don’t know anymore if I run to the elevator or take the slow elevator down. As soon as I land on the ground floor, I run through the store and out the door – I no longer know which door – and I stand outside on Fifth Avenue.
“Donna Karan’s coat is still hanging on the back of my closet door, unworn and not washed since that evening,” she wrote.
Kaplan has asked Trump’s lawyers for a DNA sample so that she can see if it matches a DNA trail found on the dress.
She has asked lawyers to provide the sample before 2 March.
