Trump Attorney Sounds The Alarm After Latest Ruling

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Alina Habba, the attorney representing former President Donald Trump, cautioned E. Jean Carroll from making extravagant purchases such as motorcycles or penthouse apartments. This advice came after Habba expressed confidence that Trump would emerge victorious in the defamation lawsuit filed by Carroll.

While speaking on Newsmax’s The Balance, Habba expressed disapproval of Carroll’s gesture to purchase a penthouse apartment and a new wardrobe for MSNBC star Rachel Maddow, following a court ruling that ordered Trump to pay Carroll $83.3 million for defamation.

Regarding the defamation trial, Habba informed Newsmax host Eric Bolling:

It was like being in an epic Twilight Zone where no rules were allowed but for the other side, and then she goes out there and gloats and says she’s gonna buy France, and a wardrobe, and a motorcycle, and this and that. I want everyone to remember, and I said this in my closing argument to the jury, she’s here to get a check and after this she will continue. She didn’t care, you know, about the defamation. She didn’t. She cared about the publicity.

“On appeal, those rulings will come up, the one-sidedness will come up, and we will prevail,” predicted Habba, before concluding, “My advice to her would be not to go ahead and purchase any motorcycles or penthouse apartments.”

Last month, Carroll presented Maddow with several extravagant gifts during her appearance on MSNBC, accompanied by her legal representatives Roberta Kaplan and Shawn Crowley.

“I have such, such great ideas for all the good I’m gonna do with this money,” said Carroll. “First thing, Rachel, you and I are going to go shopping. We’re going to get completely new wardrobes, new shoes, a motorcycle for Crowley, a new fishing rod for Robbie.”

She continued, “Rachel, what do you want? Penthouse? It’s yours, Rachel! Penthouse and, uh, France? You want France? You wanna go fishing in France?”

Crowley interjected, saying that statement is intended to be humorous.
