Trump’s Lawyer Seeks to Ban ‘Access Hollywood’ Tapes from His Civil Rape Trial

Donald Trump’s attorney wants to ban ‘Access Hollywood’ tape, where former president graphically boasts about how celebrities can abuse women, from his upcoming civil rape trial I’m here.

Trump attorneys Alina Hubba and Michael Madaio filed documents in Manhattan federal court late Thursday, attributing the 2005 taped encounter and allegations by longtime advice columnist E. Gene Carroll. He asked to block any mention of the tape itself from the April trial.

They called the tape “irrelevant and highly biased,” and could be used unfairly to suggest to jurors that Trump had sexual assault tendencies and therefore must have raped Carroll. They also sought to block the testimony of two women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct and to ban any mention of him in his campaign speeches.

Carroll, 79, said the state of New York sued Trump in November.

Carol, a former columnist for Elle magazine, said in her 2019 book What Do We Need Men For? In late 1995 or early 1996, her playing cards raped her in the changing rooms of Bergdorf Goodman, an upscale Manhattan department store.

In public statements, Trump vehemently denied it, sometimes angrily.

In a deposition for a trial scheduled for October, Trump denied Carroll’s allegations, saying, “Physically she’s not my type.”

Carroll’s attorney, Roberta Kaplan, confronted the allegations made against Carroll by 20 other women and asked if any of them were true.

According to the transcript, Trump replied, “I would say, I mean, I don’t see anything. I mean, you’re not showing me anything.”

His answer may add relevance to the lewd comments he made on the “Access Hollywood” tape that was revealed just weeks before he won the November 2016 presidential election.

In the tape, he says that sometimes when he sees a beautiful woman, “I just start kissing. It’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait.” And he added, “When you’re a star, they make you do it. You can do anything.”

He then offered a rare apology, saying the comment was a “locker room joke” caught on the hot mic.

In her lawsuit, Carol escalated into a playful joke when she had a chance encounter with Trump and was asked to help choose lingerie for a friend. and went to the locker room, where Trump turned violent and raped her.

Her attorney declined to comment on Friday.
