Trump Posts $91.63 Million Bond in E. Jean Carroll Case as Appeal Looms

Former President Donald Trump has secured a $91.63 million bond to halt collection on an $83 million judgment awarded to E. Jean Carroll, as the appeal process begins. The bond, approved by a federal judge in the Southern District of New York, Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, without argument, covers the original amount plus potential interest and costs, ensuring enforcement of the judgment is suspended during the appeal.

The verdict, handed down by a jury in January, found Trump liable for damages after defaming Carroll with his statements as president in 2019. Carroll, who celebrated the bond's approval as a "stupendous amount" on her Substack, has accused Trump of sexual abuse in 1996 and defamation in 2022. Despite Trump's consistent presence during the January trial, his testimony was constrained, and he could not dispute conclusions drawn by a previous jury in May, which awarded Carroll $5 million in damages for sexual abuse.

Trump's appeal will be heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Manhattan, as confirmed by his attorneys who have filed notice of their intention to appeal. The bond, provided by Federal Insurance Co., must be filed with the court clerk within five days of approval.

In the midst of this legal battle, Trump faces additional financial challenges, including a separate $454 million civil fraud penalty from a New York state judge's ruling. Trump, who is involved in four criminal cases and is appealing the civil fraud judgment, maintains his position as the Republican front-runner for the 2024 presidential race. At a recent campaign rally, he continued to assail Carroll's credibility, potentially setting the stage for a third defamation lawsuit.

The ongoing legal controversies contrast with Trump's previous financial commitments and arise amidst his repeated verbal attacks against Carroll. The $91.63 million bond represents not only an attempt to protect his assets but also a significant financial commitment as Trump navigates multiple legal and political challenges.

Conservative Bias:

Folks, here we have another glaring example of the liberal justice system trying to take down a conservative giant. The esteemed former President Trump, a man who has tirelessly fought for American values, is being hounded by baseless accusations from E. Jean Carroll, a woman clearly seeking fame and fortune at the expense of a patriot. The $91.63 million bond is nothing but a ploy by leftist judges and their cronies to bleed a successful conservative dry, to punish him for daring to stand up against the corrupt establishment and speak the truth. This is a witch hunt, plain and simple, aiming to derail Trump's 2024 presidential run because they fear the return of real leadership to this great nation.

Liberal Bias:

Once again, the so-called 'billionaire' Trump is forced to cough up a bond, this time a staggering $91.63 million, as a consequence of his own heinous actions. The man who claims to be the 'best' at everything is now best at being a defendant, facing a righteous judgment for defaming E. Jean Carroll after she bravely came forward with her story of abuse. Trump's appeal is nothing but a desperate attempt to evade justice, a tactic he's mastered over the years while his enablers in the Republican Party continue to support his litany of lies and misconduct. It's high time that Trump is held accountable for his actions, and this bond is a step towards ensuring that men like him can no longer abuse their power without consequence.
