Trump Will Offer No Courtroom Defense in Rape Trial

From a New York Times story by Lola Fadulu, Kate Christopher, and Benjamin Weiser headlined “Trump Will Offer No Defense in Rape Trial, His Lawyer Says”:

A lawyer defending former President Donald J. Trump against the writer E. Jean Carroll’s lawsuit accusing him of rape said Wednesday that he would present no witnesses.

The lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, had earlier told the judge that Mr. Trump would not come to court to testify in the civil case. Mr. Trump, who is again running for president, traveled to Scotland this week to open a new golf course.
