LAWSUIT: “Donald Trump has sued E Jean Carroll for defamation, alleging she falsely accused him of rape after a jury in a civil trial found that he sexually abused her.

Trump’s counterclaim against Carroll in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday cited Carroll’s statements on CNN after the verdict, and comes after a jury’s finding in May that he sexually abused and defamed, but did not rape Carroll, a former Elle magazine advice columnist.”
