More transcripts from Donald Trump’s deposition in the E. Jean Carroll defamation lawsuit have been released this week, and they show that Trump’s lawyer Alina Habba had a moment of sheer panic when Trump screwed up something that could ruin the case. Habba had to immediately step in to correct Trump, but the damage at that point had already been done. Farron Cousins explains what made Habba panic and why it could completely destroy Trump’s case.

On Wednesday of this week, we got even more transcripts released from Donald Trump’s October def, uh, deposition in the Egen Carroll defamation lawsuit. And what we found out from this new batch of transcripts from the deposition was that at one point, Donald Trump’s lawyer, Alina Haba, absolutely panicked when Donald Trump screwed up something pretty basic that he should have been able to answer correctly. Here’s what happened. Well, before I can tell you what happened, let me remind you of something on multiple different occasions on Twitter, on truth, social, and during the deposition, Donald Trump maintained that he could not have assaulted Eugene Carroll because as he says, she is, quote, not my type. So Eugene Carroll is absolutely nothing like any woman Donald Trump would ever go for, right? Okay, well that brings us to what happened. During the deposition, Donald Trump was shown a photo of a woman, a very pretty woman, and they asked him, who is this woman in this picture? And he said, that’s Marla. Yeah, that’s my wife. That’s you. Would’ve been your ex-wife at the time. Marla Maples, of course, is who he is talking about. So he sees a picture of beautiful woman, he says, oh yeah, I, I was married to this woman that is my ex-wife, Marla Maples. At that point, Alina Haba panics, and she has to jump in and be like, no, no, no, Donald Donald, that that is not Marla Maples. That is in fact, Eugene Carroll in the picture. Oh God.
So the woman who Donald Trump swears, she is not my type, he can’t tell the difference between her and the woman who definitely was his type because he married her. So not only was Haba panicked, rightfully so, right? I’m not faulting her for like having to jump in and be like, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. That’s, that’s definitely not a woman you were married to. Oh God, no, this is so bad. So not only do you have Haba panicking again, rightfully so, but also you just blew up your biggest defense, which is I would never assault her because she’s not my type, really? Cuz you couldn’t tell the difference between this woman who says you assaulted her and the woman with whom you shared a bed for many, many years. So I would say she definitely is your type if you think she is the woman that you married. So yeah, that’s probably gonna hurt when that depo clip is shown in trial. Not to mention the fact, and I know I talked about this earlier in the week, I gotta read this quote again because it’s so freaking hilarious. He threatened to sue everybody, including the lawyers. I will sue her after this is over. That’s the the thing I really
Look forward to doing, and I’ll sue you too, because this is, how many cases do you have? Many, many cases. And I know the statements that were made that you made keep Trump busy because this is the way you defeat him to keep him busy with litigation. So I will be suing you also, but I’ll be suing her very strongly as soon as this is over, you can’t sue a lawyer just because they’re representing a client for suing you. That’s not a thing you’re even allowed to do here in the United States. So I don’t know what he’s thinking, honestly, like Alina Haba, that’s the part you should have panicked about. Like you should have already been panicked, panicking at that one. He was like, I’m gonna sue everybody in this room. But of course, if Alina Haba had stepped in at that point, he probably in his fit of rage would be like, you know what?
I’m gonna sue you too. So who knows, this thing is going to trial in April. And as I’ve said, those deposition clips will be shown in trial. They’re gonna show Trump not being able to tell the difference between Carol and his ex-wife, which is going to blow up his whole, she’s not my type, uh, defense. And they’re probably also gonna show the clips in the depo where he said she was quote a nut job and that she was quote, mentally sick. So probably not gonna go the way that Donald Trump wants. I know Carol actually in this kind of case, probably has a very, very big mountain to climb to win. But the more Donald Trump talks, the more climbable that mountain is starting to look.
