 Donald Trump trial live updates: Ex-president back in court after storming out; should pay $24M to E. Jean Carroll, lawyer says

Former longtime Elle magazine advice columnist E. Jean Carroll’s defamation trial against Donald Trump is set to wrap up Friday as both sides present their closing arguments.

On Thursday, the former president testified in his defense — for just three minutes.

His brief testimony marked the first time a jury has heard directly from Trump, live in court — in any of the current cases against him — since he left the White House.

A jury is set to decide how much in damages Trump must pay Carroll, after he was found liable for sexual abuse and defamation against her last year. Carroll, a former longtime Elle magazine advice columnist, was seeking $10 million.

But during closing arguments on Friday, her attorney upped that to a whopping $24 million, saying the real estate magnate should pay his alleged abuse victim “at least” that much for defaming Carroll because “the only thing he cares about is money.”

 Trump awaits Carroll verdict after fiery closing arguments
by Zach Schonfeld - 01/26/24 2:53 PM ET

NEW YORK — The jury has begun deliberations Friday in former President Trump’s defamation case brought by columnist E. Jean Carroll after fervent closing arguments that saw Trump at one point storm out of the courtroom.

Trump and his lawyers repeatedly showed visible frustration, often shaking their heads as the judge overruled their various objections to portions of the other side’s argument.

When Carroll’s lead attorney, Roberta Kaplan, addressed the jurors, she urged them to award more than $24 million in damages, saying Trump’s denials of sexually assaulting the columnist “shattered E. Jean Carroll’s reputation.”

“Being infamous is different than being famous,” Kaplan said.

About 10 minutes into Kaplan’s argument, Trump suddenly stood up and walked out of the courtroom. He did not return for more than an hour, until his own lawyer began her argument.

Wow!  Not a Trump fan but I see this as the leftists depleting his bank account, tying up his time in court so he can't continue to run.
$24M is no small potatoes.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

She doesn't deserve it. If anything, Trump deserves double back.

Another courtroom disaster for Trump.  This bodes well for his other cases.

She asked for $10 million; the jury gave her $83.3 million.  Humility would save Trump and his henchmen millions of dollars and time in jail or prison.

Absolutely ridiculous! I fully disagree with both verdicts, and will be appealing this whole Biden Directed Witch Hunt focused on me and the Republican Party. Our Legal System is out of control, and being used as a Political Weapon. They have taken away all First Amendment Rights. THIS IS NOT AMERICA!

Any bets on whether or not Trump's lawyer actually gets paid, even after she jeopardized herself with a near contempt citation?

1) He orders them to do and argue things that are bad for his case and their careers, in the interest of "fighting back," as he imagines it.

2) He never follows their legal advice and shoots his mouth off way too much.

3) He almost never pays his legal bills.

4) As a result, top tier attorneys refuse to take him on as a client, so all he's left with are rookies or B or C team people trying to make bank off him, or else climb into that top tier.

Imagine what his cabinet will look like and what happens to them when they refuse to carry out any of his constitutional questionable edicts
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
