    In response to that specific query, the defendant in the counterclaim ignored the jury’s finding that the counterplaintiff did not violate it and responded, ‘Oh yes, he did, oh yes, he did,’” the lawsuit says, according to NBC, who had access to the documents.

    The same medium also indicated that The former president’s lawsuit also took aim at statements that Carroll he said he made it privately to Trump’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, at the end of the trial.

    “Specifically, the Counterclaim Respondent stated in the Interview that emphatically told Mr Tacopina at the end of the trial that ‘he did it and you know it’, reaffirming her assertion that the Counterclaimant violated her. The Counterclaim Defendant made these statements, each knowing they were false or with reckless disregard for their truth or falsehood,” Trump’s lawsuit reads.
