Judge Rules Trump Liable in Second E. Jean Carroll Suit

Donald Trump just cannot catch a break on the legal front.

This time, however, he has nobody to blame but himself.

A judge just found that Trump can be held liable for comments made about E. Jean Carroll at the conclusion of her libel suit against Trump, reported the New York Post.

Stop Talking

If I were Trump, I would stop talking to the media and posting on Truth Social about anything related to his legal issues.

Comments he made about E. Jean Carroll after he lost the $5 million suit are now coming back to haunt him. And he will surely get hit with a few more million in damages.

Trump accused Carroll of having made up the allegations she made against Trump.

Judge Kaplan, who has been a thorn in Trump’s side, ruled that Trump’s comments about Carroll were an outright lie that was made with “actual malice.” Kaplan cited the verdict of the previous trial where Carroll was awarded $5 million, reported NBC News.

This was a crushing blow for Trump, and he now awaits just how much more money this will cost him.

Just to add insult to injury, Kaplan also denied Trump’s motion to have the damages from the $5 million case limited, so Trump is going to be writing some fairly significant checks.

As bad as this is for Trump, these are “only” civil cases that he is losing.

He is about to run the gauntlet of four major indictments that encompass 91 felony charges.

In some of these cases, a single charge could put Trump behind bars for the rest of his life.

All told, Trump faces 712.5 years in prison if he is found guilty of all charges.

In addition, some of these cases have possible presidential election implications, so Trump is buried deep in the legal woods right now, hoping for a miracle to come out of this unscathed.
