The Justice Department should be kept away from the case, the woman who accused Trump of sexual abuse requested the court.
A woman who has filed a lawsuit against US President Donald Trump for sexual harassment has asked the court to keep the Justice Department out of the case.
According to the New York Times, Jane Carroll, a 76-year-old female journalist, petitioned a federal court in Manhattan to keep the US Department of Justice out of her case and not allow the department to fight Donald Trump’s case. To be given
The petitioner contended that the accused had committed the crime in his personal capacity and that the accused was not the President of the United States at the time of the incident and therefore the Justice Department could not be allowed to fight his case.
The petition, filed by E.J. Carroll’s lawyers, states that Donald Trump resolves many issues in his personal capacity, rather than as president and that he also respects the victim’s personal status. That is why he should appear in person in this case. If his case is fought by the US Department of Justice, it would be a total violation of the law and it could bring the US into disrepute all over the world.
The petition, citing U.S. law, the Westfall Act, requested that the case not fall under the Westfall Act, and therefore not allow the Justice Department to fight the case under the Westfall Act.
It should be noted that under the US Westfall Act, the Department of Justice provides services to the heads of executive bodies. Egan Carroll’s lawyers argued in court that Donald Trump was not the head of any executive body and that he was the head of state at the time of the crime. Or there were no other officials, so it would be illegal for the Justice Department to provide services for their case.
