    Trump TRAPS HIMSELF in MASSIVE DEFAMATION Lawsuit

    enJune 07, 2024

    Podcast Summary

    • Trump's fixation on CarrollTrump's fixation on defaming and attacking sexual assault accuser Eugene Carroll despite facing legal consequences raises concerns about his character and fitness to lead.

      Donald Trump, despite being convicted of multiple crimes and owing millions in damages to a sexual assault accuser, continues to defame and attack the victim, Eugene Carroll, on right-wing media outlets such as Newsmax. Trump's fixation on Carroll, who obtained two separate jury verdicts against him for defamation and sexual assault, has led him to disregard the legal consequences of his actions. This pattern of behavior raises concerns about his character and fitness to lead as the potential nominee of a major political party in the United States. Despite facing more pressing legal issues, Trump's unhinged behavior towards Carroll highlights a disturbing pattern of disregard for the truth and the legal system.

    • Jury AnonymityJury anonymity is crucial to ensure fair trials, as seen when Donald Trump criticized the lack of smiles from jurors in his fraud case. Skilled legal representation is also essential in achieving favorable outcomes.

      During a recent interview, Donald Trump expressed dissatisfaction with his jury experience in New York, claiming he couldn't get a fair trial due to jurors' lack of smiles and anonymity. He was on trial for a fraud case. The jurors, all Manhattanites, were summoned and became anonymous to protect them. Trump's lawyer, Robbie Kaplan, has successfully represented him in two cases, resulting in a $5.5 million and $83.5 million verdict, respectively. Once the appeal is over, the $100 million bond will be transferred to Eugene Carroll. Trump's complaints about the jury experience highlight the seriousness and anonymity required for jury duty, while Kaplan's tenacious representation underscores the importance of skilled legal counsel.

    • Trump's legal challengesTrump's public statements and behavior create new 'bad facts' that make it difficult for his legal team to effectively represent him, leading to unfavorable venues and increased financial bonds.

      Donald Trump's actions continue to create new challenges for his legal team. His habit of making new "bad facts" through public statements and behavior makes it difficult for his lawyers to effectively represent him. For instance, Trump's legal team had to secure large bonds for his cases due to his financial situation, which was not an issue when the stakes were lower. Trump's repeated attacks on accusers and unwillingness to stay quiet have led to unfavorable venues for his trials, making it harder for his team to secure a fair trial. Despite the challenges, Trump's legal team has advocated for venue changes and continues to represent him. However, the ongoing creation of new "bad facts" makes their job increasingly difficult.

    • Legal Dispute RegretThe speaker expresses regret over a costly legal dispute and emphasizes the importance of maintaining good health through proper nutrition. Despite the setback, he encourages listeners to prioritize their health and offers a discount on Field of Greens, his trusted product.

      The speaker expresses deep regret over a costly legal dispute involving a woman he didn't know, and feels the process was unfair. He emphasizes the importance of paying attention to nutrition and maintaining good health, which he promotes through Field of Greens, a product he believes in and trusts. Despite the setback, he remains positive and encourages listeners to prioritize their health today. The speaker's interviews with Kelly and Dr. Phil convey the same message: he is skeptical of the woman's claims against him and emphasizes the significance of taking care of one's health. Field of Greens, with its organic whole fruits and vegetables, is his recommended solution. He encourages listeners to use the promo code "legal AF" for 15% off and free shipping at fieldofgreens.com.

    • Truthfulness and ConsistencyInconsistencies and lack of recall in handling allegations can damage credibility and fuel doubts about one's version of events, particularly in high-profile cases.

      During the trial, Donald Trump's testimony about his relationship with E.J. Carroll, who accused him of sexual assault, was called into question. Trump had previously downplayed their acquaintance, stating they weren't his type. However, it was revealed they had met at social events and were even pictured together with Trump's first wife, Ivana, and Carroll's husband, a well-known local newscaster. Trump's inconsistency and apparent lack of recall, along with his continued attacks on women based on their appearance, damaged his credibility and fueled doubts about his version of events. This incident underscores the importance of truthfulness and consistency in handling allegations, particularly in high-profile cases.

    • Trump's defamation of ex-wife IvanaJury awarded Ivana Trump $80 million in punitive damages for Trump's defamation, and the jury aimed to send a message to make him stop, signaling potential future consequences for Trump

      Donald Trump's history of defamation against his ex-wife, Ivana Trump, led a jury to award her $80 million in punitive damages. Trump continued to defame Ivana during the trial itself, and the jury aimed to send a message to make him stop. The future juries may respond similarly as Trump continues to deny the allegations.

    FELON Trump has MAJOR MEETING before SENTENCING…
    Trump’s interview with the NY probation department to allow them to prepare a presentencing recommendation to the trial judge before he sentences him on 7/11, has the real possibility of quickly jumping the track, as Trump and his lawyers try to use the interview to argue that Trump’s criminal trial was a “witch hunt”, and “lawless” and will be “reversed” and he should get no punishment. Michael Popok explains what will likely occur during the interview and how that will shape the outcome of the report.
