A New York-based advice columnist claims Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a dressing room at a Manhattan department store in the mid-1990s, according to a first-person account published Friday by NY magazine.
Carroll, a columnist for Elle magazine, said in a Friday interview with MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell that while she has not washed or dry-cleaned the outfit she was wearing during the alleged assault, she had no intention of pushing for criminal charges against Trump.
When they reached the dressing rooms, Trump pushed her against the wall, pulled down her tights, and "went around his private area with his fingers". "I finally get a knee up high enough to push him out and off and I turn, open the door, and run out", she says.
Carroll said the incident happened when the two met by chance at the upscale department store Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.
Ms Carroll says she didn't fable the alleged assault on the time after being told by a chum she had no likelihood of successful in court docket. "I've never met this person in my life", he said.
He was heard boasting of sexual assault in a tape from "Access Hollywood", and Carroll's account will most likely reignite the discussion over those previous allegations and Trump's treatment of women. While those cases generally involved groping and kissing without consent, Carroll alleged forced penetration.
"Fraudulent accusations diminish the severity of proper assault", Trump stated. Carroll claimed that Trump needed help picking out lingerie as a present, which eventually led the real estate tycoon to suggest that the writer try on a lace bodysuit. It's fair, I think, to infer that Carroll's allegation is rooted in her desire to sell her book, not in an actual rape. "He pushed his penis half into me or entirely, I am not sure", says the author.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell interviewed Carroll on Friday and noted that NY does not have a statute of limitations for rape.

I have no trouble believing that Trump has improperly and forcefully touched women in the past.

Mr Moonves' e-book instructed Silent York journal he "emphatically denies" the incident. He also accused the magazine of "peddling fake news" and called it a "failing business".
"The world should know what's really going on", he added.
"Or now not it is correct as despicable for oldsters to squawk it, notably when there is zero evidence", he added. Trump said "folks can even restful pay dearly for such fraudulent accusations".
