LAWSUIT: “President Trump cannot claim he no longer resides in New York to defend against the defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who says he raped her years ago, lawyers for the accuser argued Monday citing the president’s rancorous call with governors this month during which he boasted about his ties to the city…

Monday’s filing reinforces Carroll’s assertion that Manhattan is a proper venue in which to sue the president, a lifelong New Yorker, her lawyers said, adding that their claim to jurisdiction is reinforced by the fact that Trump’s reelection campaign is based here, at Trump Tower. The attorneys argued that Trump’s home base has been and continues to be in New York.”
