Rachel Maddow Lands First Post-Trial Interview With E. Jean Carroll on MSNBC

On Monday, the woman who just won $83 a million judgement against Donald Trump will appear on The Rachel Maddow Show.

MSNBC announced late today that Maddow will sit down with E. Jean Carroll for her first interview since a jury ordered former President Donald Trump to hand over $83 million in damages for defaming Carroll.

Carroll will be joined by her attorneys Roberta Kaplan and Shawn Crowley for the interview to discuss the case and a potential appeal from Trump.

While not a huge dent in self-declared billionaire’s wallet, today’s verdict is still, in the words of CNN’s Jake Tapper this afternoon, “quite a chunk of change.” The judgement will be appealed, as the former president indicated today, but overturning the decision could prove difficult for Team Trump.

Fox’s Neil Cavuto made a point of remarking that it was a “unanimous jury” verdict. He also noted that Trump’s attorneys have recommended the leading GOP candidate, who has used the various court cases against him as campaign backdrops, keep quiet. It’s still too early to know if he will comply.

Trump was found liable in May 2023 of sexually abusing and defaming Carroll. Back in May, that jury awarded the former Elle columnist $5 million out of her claim that the then real estate mogul sexually assaulted her in a Bergdorf Goodman change room in the mid-1990s. Today’s case came about after Trump continued to attack and demean Carroll, in and out of the White House, online at at campaign rallies.

Kaplan was asked by Anderson Cooper today whether a third lawsuit is on the table if Trump continues to defame Carroll.

Kaplan replied, “I’m too good of an attorney to answer that. I will tell you everything is on the table.”

The exclusive interview will air on Monday, January 29 at 9 p.m. ET on MSNBC.
