That girl, E. Jean Carroll, who was an recommendation columnist for Elle journal, doubled down on that allegation in a tweet, saying that Trump was on to blame for her “firing” from Elle.
“Because Trump ridiculed my reputation, laughed at my looks, & dragged me through the mud, after 26 years, ELLE fired me,” Carroll stated in her tweet. “I don’t blame Elle. It was the great honor of my life writing ‘Ask E. Jean.’ I blame @realdonaldtrump.”
In an argument in opposition to Trump’s efforts to delay her swimsuit, Carroll’s attorneys stated in Tuesday’s submitting that the lack of her Elle contract is proof “staying this case would expose Carroll to ongoing harms.”
Carroll’s attorneys included an exhibit of their submitting that includes a screenshot of an electronic mail confirming the termination of her contract.
CNN has reached out to Elle journal and its mum or dad firm Hearst for remark. When CNN Business reached out to White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham for remark, she stated, “Seems to me you’d need to ask her employer why they decided to sever ties.”
In the excerpt, Carroll claims that she encountered “one of New York’s most famous men” within the fall of 1995 or spring 1996 at Bergdorf Goodman, the place, she says, he attacked her in one of many dressing rooms after urgent her to attempt on lingerie. She stated Trump pushed her in opposition to the dressing room wall, the place he “unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me.” She says she fought in opposition to Trump.
