Here’s a former US President with a history of sexual misconduct and even civil case settlments trying to deny his history …..
Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers asked a judge to bar jurors at his upcoming civil trial from hearing testimony that he sexually assaulted two other women besides E. Jean Carroll, the writer suing him for defaming her after she alleged in 2019 that he raped her in the 1990s.
His lawyers also want Manhattan federal court Judge Lewis Kaplan to prohibit evidence of Trump’s infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, where he boasted about kissing and groping women without their consent, new legal filings reveal.
That tape, recorded in 2005, was made public shortly before the 2016 election. At the time, it was seen as potentially fatal to Trump’s first White House bid.
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” Trump said on that tape. “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. “Grab ’em by the p—-.”
Trump’s lawyers also asked Kaplan to prevent attorneys for Carroll, 79, from showing jurors evidence of Trump’s speeches and statements when he campaigned for president.
Carroll’s lawyers, on the other hand, are asking Kaplan in their own filings to admit the testimony by the two other women, Jessica Leeds and Natasha Stoynoff. They say Trump began groping them without permission in separate incidents…..
