Jean Carroll rape allegation as 'fiction'

Jean Carroll rape allegation as 'fiction'

President Donald Trump on Friday denied allegations by a woman who alleged he sexually assaulted her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s.

Ms Carroll, now 75, wrote in her book excerpt on the magazine's website that Mr Trump recognized her as "that advice lady" as he arrived at Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue just as she was leaving. When Trump asks Carroll to advise him on what to buy, she agrees, and the two eventually make their way to the lingerie section.

They then went into a dressing room, where Carroll says Trump forced himself on her.

She said that he opened his overcoat, unzipped his trousers and thrust his penis inside her.

Trump has denied the allegations and called the women "liars".

Excerpts of the forthcoming book were first published on the website of NY magazine. The article published Friday includes a photo of Trump and Carroll talking in a group.

She has also alleged that Les Moonves, the former CEO of CBS, who resigned in September 2018 following allegations of sexual misconduct by women, assaulted her in the elevator of a Beverly Hills hotel after she interviewed him in 1997.

Obviously, now, it's disappointing that it doesn't go any further, but that's it. The German star added: "Let us do what we want".


A top advice columnist is accusing President Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her during a chance meeting while she was shopping at the iconic Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan. The individuals Carroll describes as the "hideous men" in her life also include former CBS CEO Les Moonves, whom she interviewed for a 1997 Esquire story and who she says groped her repeatedly in an elevator, a claim Moonves denied to NY magazine. "A Modest Proposal", details the decades-old rape accusation against Trump, which the president has since vehemently denied.

In an excerpt from her upcoming book, titled, What Do We Need Men For? "I think she was married, as I read, I have no idea who she is, but she was married to an actually nice guy, Johnson, a newscaster".

"If anyone has information that the Democratic Party is working with Ms. Carroll or New York Magazine, please notify us as soon as possible", Trump said in the statement. They begin on the main floor looking at hats, and after some banter over a fur hat Trump sees the escalator and says, "lingerie!" or "underwear!" "And I just decided because I love my readers, I thought well, OK, I'm going to tell them, this is what happened to me". "She is trying to sell a new book-that should indicate her motivation", he said in a statement.

It was there, she says, that Trump attacked her in a dressing room.

"It's ready to go out of business from what I hear. You can do anything", Trump was recorded saying.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said he wasn't sure it was worth adding the sexual assault claim to the long list of areas pertaining to Trump that Democrats are probing. NY magazine claims to have verified her account with two friends who were told about the incident shortly after it occurred. The other friend, a television anchor, advised Carroll not to report the assault because Trump's lawyers would "bury" her. Carroll said she never came forward because she feared death threats and "being dragged through the mud, being dismissed". Most spoke out just weeks before the 2016 election.

"I would find it disrespectful to the women who are down on the border who are being raped around the clock, down there without any protection", said Carroll.
