“We will appeal, we have been treated very badly by a judge who was appointed by Bill Clinton.” Donald Trump thus lashes out, interviewed by Fox News, against the conviction for sexual assault and defamation in the New York trial in which Judge Lewis Kaplan has decided that the former president must pay 5 million in compensation to E. Jean Carroll.
“Carroll is also a Clinton person,” added the former president, reiterating that he has “no idea who this woman is,” meaning that he has never met her. “I have absolutely no idea who this woman is – Trump wrote on Truth Social immediately after the reading of the sentence – this verdict is a shame, the continuation of the greatest witch hunt of all time”.
Trump explained that the appeal will denounce an “unconstitutional” attempt to silence me. Even the Trump campaign calls the ruling “an abuse of our great constitution.”
“In an entirely Democrat-controlled jurisdiction, our judicial system is now undermined by left-wing extremists: False accusations by disturbed people have been allowed to interfere with our elections,” read a statement stating that “this whole false case is a political attempt to bash President Trump because he is now clearly in the lead to be re-elected president of the United States”.
