Trump Sues ABC And George Stephanopoulos For Defamation Over Rape Claims

Mar 19, 2024 | Political News

Former President Donald Trump launched a defamation complaint against the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) and host George Stephanopoulos on Monday.

Stephanopoulos claimed during a March 10 interview with Republican South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace that two juries found Trump “liable for rape;” however, Trump was found liable for defamation and battery against author E. Jean Carroll. Trump alleges Stephanopolous purposely made claims multiple times to defame him, according to the complaint filed in a federal court in Miami. (RELATED: Trump Posts $91 Million Bond As He Appeals E.
