Donald Trump may have severely damaged his case in the defamation lawsuit brought against him by a woman who accused him of rape by expressing "repeated lies" during his deposition, according to an attorney.

Katie Phang, legal analyst and MSNBC host, was reacting to the unsealed transcripts of the testimony Trump gave as part of the suit brought forward by former Elle columnist E. Jean Carroll.

Carroll accused the former president of raping her at a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in New York in the mid-1990s. Trump denies the allegation.

Carroll is suing Trump for defaming her character while denying the allegations, including stating in a 2019 interview that she was "not my type." Trump later repeated the same remarks in a statement posted on Truth Social in October 2022, just before his deposition took place.

During his testimony, which was unsealed on Monday, Trump defended his "not my type" remarks while also calling the rape claim from Carroll a "hoax" and his accuser a "whack job" and a "liar."

Trump also accused a number of investigations and inquiries against him of being "hoaxes," including Robert Mueller's Russia probe and the former president's first impeachment trial. Trump also repeated his false voter fraud claims, describing mail-in-ballots as a hoax despite admitting that's how he votes in elections.

During Monday's episode on Deadline: White House , MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace asked Phang, apart from making him "sound like a jack***," what was the legal significance of Trump making these comments under oath.

"The legal significance is he steps in it and over and over again," Phang said. "And more importantly, later on in his deposition, he basically denies flat out that he's ever touched a woman and any part of her body—specifically is denying touching a woman on her breast or buttocks or any other sexual part without her consent.

"He said no under oath. The whole world knows that on an Access Hollywood tape, he boasted about how he would grab them by the 'blank,' and you could do it when you're a star," Phang added. "He's caught in repeated lies throughout the course of this sworn videotaped deposition."

Phang added that Trump's under-oath testimony will definitely be used against him as when Carroll's defamation case is brought to trial in April as "the more that you are painted as a liar, the more that you are a liar and a jury is going to determine that."

Elsewhere, Phang said Trump also did not help himself as he was "stupid" enough to not only repeat his "not my type" remark regarding Carroll on Truth Social in October, but "stupid enough to step in repeatedly" during his deposition.

"He's gonna go to trial in April and he is more likely than not going to be found liable for the claims that are brought by [Carroll], and that is why this videotaped deposition is so important," Phang added.

Trump has been contacted for comment.

Phang is a partisan moron. So what else is new?

So stating E. Jean Carroll is "not his type" repeatedly damages him how again? Unless she can prove she is his type- good luck with that.

During his testimony, which was unsealed on Monday, Trump defended his "not my type" remarks while also calling the rape claim from Carroll a "hoax" and his accuser a "whack job" and a "liar."

What else would you call her if she is belated pressing rape charges that Trump claims are not true?

columnist can proceed with lawsuits alleging she was raped by former President Donald Trump in a department store a quarter century ago, a federal judge ruled Friday, upholding a temporary New York state law letting adult victims of sexual abuse sue their abusers.

A quarter century ago? So 25 damn years? WTF took her so long? Oh that is right- Trump became POTUS; and the left wing wackos came out of the woodwork. 

Trump said Carroll made the claim publicly for the first time in a 2019 book to generate book sales. Carroll was a longtime Elle magazine columnist. She initially sued Trump for defamation after he mocked her claims that he sexually assaulted her in late 1995 or early 1996 after they had a chance meeting in the department store and she agreed to help him pick out lingerie for a friend.

So she can't even get the damn date correct? WTF. "Oh, it happened sometime between these dates; but I remember it like it was yesterday!" She sounds like Kavanaugh's accuser Dr. Blasey Ford. I will give her credit; at least she got a location. Just the when portion seems to escape her. I don't suppose she has witnesses? If she did I am sure she would have the when portion locked down. 

But Trruuummmmppppp!!!!!!! We will see if that is enough for her to win the lawsuit.

Why do you constantly defend Trump?

This case has not been tried so at least wait for clear evidence before declaring the plaintiff to be a liar and the defendant not guilty.

This seed was about Trump's lying and the legal ramifications of such in a trial:

"The legal significance is he steps in it and over and over again," Phang said. "And more importantly, later on in his deposition, he basically denies flat out that he's ever touched a woman and any part of her body—specifically is denying touching a woman on her breast or buttocks or any other sexual part without her consent. "He said no under oath. The whole world knows that on an Access Hollywood tape, he boasted about how he would grab them by the 'blank,' and you could do it when you're a star," Phang added. "He's caught in repeated lies throughout the course of this sworn videotaped deposition."

It is a wonder Trump is not in even more trouble given his proclivity to lie.   Lying under oath is very different from lying on stage.

Who responds to a rape allegation by claiming the accuser "is not their type"? Such a statement clearly indicates that the rape allegation would or could definitely be true if only the victim were "his type". He's essentially admitting that he only rapes women that are "his type".

If anyone out there actually believes that Trump has never sexually assaulted and/or raped women before then they should definitely get their heads examined because that clearly indicates a severe lack of any brain matter. Such displays of monumental gullibility from Trumps loyal ass kissing followers should be used as examples to study in the future similar to how some study the mindset of Jim Jones followers willing to drink the cool-aid.

"Trump caught in repeated lies."  In other words he spoke, right?
