Trump found guilty in civil trial of sexual battery and defamation--largely on basis of near 30-yr-old photo and Trump's own boisterous rhetoric (and unsubstantiated, possibly conspiratorial claims)

The rhetoric was a Trump video clip where Trump states "stars" can force themselves on women, even grope them with impunity; the photo was an old group photo of E. Jean Carroll and Trump with two other people in a completely different setting. The conspiratorial corroboration was from friends of Carroll who testified that she had called them shortly after the alleged dept store event and Carroll, at that time, told them how she had been abused.

I guess the next mass shooting in New York where the suspect remains unidentified can also be blamed on Trump--as Trump famously quipped that he could walk down a New York street shooting people and his supporters would still vote for him. Sadly, boisterous rhetoric these days seems to be dangerous--especially when leftist enemies get a hold of it.

    Having spent half my life at Macy's in the dressing rooms, I find it impossible a person could rape a person without the victim screaming loud enough to rout the entire floor staff. I don't believe this woman's story. But she does have $5 million reasons for telling it.

    Trumps defense should have simply stated that whether this did or did not happen, it is completely irrelevant as the statue of limitations had long since expired.

    The statue of limitations is seven years for criminal actions and 20 years for civil actions. Therefore either way he should not have been tried and the case should have been thrown out immediately.

      They changed the law in NY just for this case giving a one year window to go back and accuse people of as this case shows indefensible charges.
      When , is as critical as it gets because you can’t differentiate where you were.

    Going through the article I had to look up the word "preponderance" as in "preponderance of evidence" in case it didn't mean what I thought it meant. I was correct in my thinking where a preponderance of zero evidence is still zero. Looks like Trump got scorched by a commie judge overseeing a commie trial with a commie jury of 9 and Carroll walks away with $5 million because the commies really really hate Trump.

    It also appears Carroll screwed up her life and needed a scapegoat. Was she jilted in the past and this is what came of it? How convenient.

    Trump needs to counter sue.

    DJT clearly never heard that it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove it. He saved the USA from Hillary Rodham Clinton, take the win, and enjoy the rest of your life.

    Well damn! I only got his job and $30K when my stupid boss kissed me on the mouth as I stood in a receiving line at a Board Meeting. He wasn't someone I wanted to kiss! He also commented, "You look gorgeous".. I responded, 'I'll bet you tell all the boys that!'

    Only murder has no statute of limitation.
    If you robbed a bank of a ba-zillion dollars and got a away with it for seven years and a day, you're all good.
    Lib-Tards talk all day long about "Democracy" (even though we are a Federal Republic), They wouldn't recognize democracy was if it were a dog and bit them on the a$$.
    So now that the Baal-Worshipping Leftists have changed the law on sex crimes, that opens the door wide to go after Slick Willy, TraitorJoe and countless other swap creatures to prosecution of innumerable sexual assaults. Let the trials begin.

    This would have never flown in a criminal trial where the standard is "beyond a shadow of a doubt." But the burden in a civil trial is only "preponderance of evidence". Even at that, the accusers couldn't even identify the day or even year that the supposed incident took place. You'd think that something that traumatic would have burned its date in her mind.

    This has farce written all over it.

    Biden tried to do it in the halls of Congress, but they ignored that woman. As a female, I have to ask why she has no idea of the when, and did not bother to scrcream out for help. Maybe she was expecting to be paid? Why did she not request a rirzy hotel room, it was Trump. nty buying it, Hillary supports likely on jury. .

    All NY juries have their panties in a wad and would convict Trump on anything. Don't waste your time paying any attention to such BS.

    Why are they messing around with this, they probably could just pass a law that says Trump is guilty of anything he is charged with. A lawsuit today means nothing, we are no law a country of laws. Everything is upside down or backwards where the guilty can just charge someone else of thier own crimes and get away with it.

    First, this is a he said, she said situation.
    Second, it was obviously SO TRAUMATIC that she cannot remember the DATE, much less the YEAR.

    Third, she NEVER SAID NO! (so we are now using "todays" standards in the past, which is a violation of passing a retroactive law).

    Fourth, when he left, she could have asked for help, and claim she was raped IN THEIR STORE. She would have CASHED IN (Bigly). But she didn't... I wonder why?

    It was EITHER Consensual. Or SIMPLY Not a rape... Or... It NEVER even happened.
    And this is SO FAR BEYOND the statute of limitations as to be absurd! (not sure if the apply for civil cases).

    Shame on the Judge. Shame on the Jury.
    And, to some degree... Shame on Trumps Lawyers.

    Of course, where was she in 2016... When the rape was CLOSER to her mind?

    Meanwhile, leftists threatening the SCOTUS Justices for DAYS... And nothing happens.
