Attorney who representing E Jean Carroll claims that during a deposition, before she assisted the magazine columnist in winning a $83.3 million decision in her defamation action against the former president, Trump called her the “C-word” using a coded language.
During a Friday interview on the George Conway Explains It All podcast, Roberta Kaplan revealed the anecdote. She claimed that it occurred during Trump’s deposition at his Mar-a-Lago resort in connection with an unrelated case that has since been dropped, in which he was accused of working with a fraudulent marketing company.
According to Kaplan, after ensuring that both sides had been taken off the record, Trump’s lawyers said, he looked at her and said, “We’ll see you next Tuesday.”
This well-known, hardly disguised expression combines words that sound like the word’s initial two letters, “C” and “U,” with words that begin with the letter’s “N” and “T,” to represent what is arguably the most derogatory sexist insult that can be directed at a woman.
Conway was informed by Kaplan that at first, she didn’t get what Trump had meant because the parties weren’t planning to meet on Tuesday. Thank goodness, I didn’t know what that meant, so I asked him, “What are you talking about?” Wednesday is when I’m returning, Kaplan said. It was an honest response to the letter. I had no clue as to what he was discussing.
Sarah Longwell, co-host of the program, said that joke was appropriate for a teenage male.
Kaplan retorted: “If I had known, I definitely would have become upset.” I didn’t look above it all, even though I thought I did. Simply put, I was ignorant.
Conway, a conservative lawyer who was once Kellyanne Conway’s White House counsel, interjected into Kaplan’s memories with the comment, “So this is really an incredible story.”
Kaplan also said that that day, Trump threw a fit when his legal team tried to bring lunch to her and her colleagues.
He was facing a massive stack of paperwork and exhibits when he picked it up, hurled it over the table, and barged out of the room. stated Kaplan.
Trump Threw Evidence Document
Particularly, the assertion that Trump threw documents across a table brought to mind another tale from evidence given to the congressional committee looking into the Capitol attack orchestrated by the former president’s followers following his loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 election. at court, a former White House assistant said that Trump hurled a dish of food at a wall at the White House out of rage.
Smearing it with ketchup – following the public denial by his attorney general at the time of Trump’s false claims of voter fraud in the Biden-won election.
Kaplan’s comments on Friday will undoubtedly expose Trump to additional criticism on his mistreatment of women.
Carroll filed a lawsuit against Trump in a different case, alleging that the former Elle magazine writer had sexually assaulted her in a department store locker room in the middle of the 1990s. Kaplan represented Carroll in that case. In his case, Carroll said that Trump had then attacked Carroll’s credibility while defaming her.
On January 26, a federal court jury in New York awarded Carroll $18.3 million in compensatory damages and $65 million in punitive damages for the defamatory remarks Trump had made about her. This compensation topped a $5 million award the presumed Republican presidential candidate for 2024 was compelled to pay in May after it was determined that he had abused Carroll.
As he battles over 90 criminal charges in multiple jurisdictions for hush-money payments to an adult film actor who has allegedly had extramarital sex with him, illegally retaining government secrets after leaving the Oval Office, and subverting the 2020 election, Trump has declared that he plans to appeal the recent verdict granted to Carroll.
In response, Kaplan stated that she was certain her team will be able to obtain the judgment against Trump when she appeared on the morning show of XYZ channel on Monday.
We might not do it just correctly,” she remarked. He does, however, possess a sizable amount of real land. It is able to be sold.
