Judge Bars President Trump From Making A Defense At Trial

Every day I think that we couldn’t possibly become more of a banana republic than we are right now, but apparently, it’s a long way down.

I have long said that those who wish to prevent something from being said are the ones with something to hide—it is they who are wrong.

The entire point of a court of law is to get to the bottom of things and to ensure justice. If something is nonsense, it should still be allowed to be said in court.

The court can then show how ridiculous that hypothetical nonsense is through well-reasoned arguments, witnesses, and evidence. This is the point of courts.

Instead of sticking to this time-honored tradition, U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan has opted for the more ‘progressive’ route.

According to Judge Kaplan’s recent ruling, President Trump is not allowed to lodge a defense in his upcoming defamation case brought forward by E. Jean Carroll.

More specifically, he will not be able to argue against her claims of sexual abuse. How is this legal or just? Take a look at the reports below and let us know if you believe Carroll’s claims:

Bloomberg provided a portion of Judge Kaplan’s ruling:

“Mr. Trump is precluded from offering any testimony, evidence, or argument suggesting or implying that he did not sexually assault Ms. Carroll, that she fabricated her account of the assault, or that she had any motive to do so.” 

Attorney Jeff Clark claimed: “I know The E Jean Carroll lawsuit is the brainchild of fake conservative/nonconservative George Conway. And the moneybags for the Carroll suit is Reid Hoffman. Conway plus Hoffman equals a devilish cocktail.”

According to The Epoch Times, President Trump had this to say about both Judge Kaplan and Carroll:

In a speech he delivered on Jan. 6 in Iowa as front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination in advance of the Jan. 15 primary election there, President Trump referred to the judge as a “radical Democrat” and made disparaging comments about Ms. Carroll for not speaking up at the time, if she was attacked.
