President Trump is going to appear for a sworn deposition today in a defamation lawsuit where a woman is accusing him of harming her reputation after she accused him of sexually assaulting her.

In 2019 E. Jean Carroll had claimed that Trump sexually assaulted her in a department store back in the 90s, pushing her up against a dressing room wall with his pants undone.

But in response to the allegations, Trump said he never met her and that it never happened.

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened,”

Trump told The Hill that Carroll is “totally lying” about the accusation, which he also denied earlier. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her,” he said. “She is — it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”

Now she’s claiming that Trump’s statements hurt her reputation and she’s suing him for defamation.

Here’s more from Newsmax:

Former President Donald Trump is expected to sit for a deposition Wednesday as part of the defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who has accused him of raping her in the 1990s, multiple news outlets reported.

A federal judge last week denied Trump’s request to delay the deposition while a key question about the suit was considered on appeal.

It is not clear if Trump, under oath, will answer questions from E. Jean Carroll’s attorney, CNN reported, though The New York Times said Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, insisted her client was “ready and eager to sit” for questioning.

The deposition is expected to take place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, the Times reported.

Carroll, a former magazine columnist, accused Trump of raping her at the department store Bergdorf Goodman. Trump responded by saying he had never met Carroll, that she was “totally lying” and that she was not his “type.”

Carroll sued Trump saying his statements had harmed her reputation. She was scheduled to sit for her deposition last Friday.

Carroll has said she intends to sue Trump next month under a new New York State law that allows victims of sexual assault to file a civil lawsuit years after the statutes of limitations had expired.

The former president’s testimony in the defamation case could be used in a future lawsuit.

The defamation trial is set to begin in February.
