Donald Trump may soon have to answer to rape allegations under oath as accuser E. Jean Carroll’s lawyers seek to depose him in her defamation lawsuit.
Carroll filed her lawsuit against Trump over two years ago, alleging that he defamed her in November 2019 when he denied her allegation that he raped her at a Manhattan department store in the mid-90s.
Trump said he never knew Carroll and accused her of lying to sell her new book, adding: ‘She’s not my type.’
