Trump ‘YELLED at Alina Habba, threw papers across a table and walked out of a Mar-a-Lago deposition after his legal team offered E. Jean Carroll’s lawyers lunch’

E. Jean Carroll’s lawyer says President Donald Trump threw papers on the table and stormed out of a deposition at Mar-a-Lago after learning that her lawyers had agreed to cater her lunch.

Roberta Kaplan also said that Trump yelled at Alina Habba, the firebrand lawyer who defended him in his New York cases, for being accommodating to the legal team of the magazine columnist who accused him of rape.

Last week, Kaplan scored another legal victory against the Republican presidential front-runner when a jury ordered him to pay Carroll $83.3 million in defamation damages.

The case centered around Trump, 77, who Carroll called a liar and insisted he never met her after she claimed he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.

In an episode of the podcast George Conway Explains it All (to Sarah Longwell) taped Thursday, Kaplan told longtime Trump critic Conway that she rejected the former president’s request that they work through lunch.

‘And then you could quite see the wheel turning in his brain. You could really almost see it,’ Kaplan said. “And he said, “Well, you’re here in Mar-a-Lago. What do you think you’re going to do for lunch? Where are you going to get lunch?”

While Trump wanted to work through lunch, calling the deposition a “waste of time,” Kaplan said she told Trump that her lawyers “graciously offered to provide her team with lunch.”

‘At that point there was a huge pile of documents, exhibits sitting in front of him, and he took the stack and just threw it across the table. And stormed out of the room,’ Kaplan said.

Trump then yelled at Habba for providing lunch for opposing counsel, Kaplan added.

‘He really yelled at Alina for that. He was so angry with Alina,’ Kaplan said. DailyMail.com has reached out to Habba for comment.

At the end of the statement, Kaplan recalled another bizarre interaction with the former president when he said “see you next Tuesday,” which is considered an acronym for a derogatory term for women.

Kaplan said the comment appeared planned. She came back into the room and said she was done with questions. The other side said ‘off the record’ and then ‘Trump looks at me from across the table and he says: “See you next Tuesday.”‘

Kaplan recalled that he was initially confused because their next meeting was on Wednesday. She said it was like a joke ‘like teenage boys would come up with’.

‘I wasn’t in on the joke so I had no idea. Then we get in the car and my colleagues are like, “Robbie, do you know what that means?” And I’m like, “No, what are you talking about?” They tell me and I’m like, oh my God, thank God I didn’t know, because if I did, I’d be mad for sure.’

Kaplan was at Mar-a-Lago to depose the GOP Republican presidential front-runner in a lawsuit alleging the former president was involved in a fraudulent marketing company. A federal judge dismissed the case last month.

But last week, Kaplan scored a legal victory against Trump when a jury ordered him to pay E. Jean Carroll a staggering $83.3 million in defamation after he denied raping her in a department store in 1996. The sum was three times what Carroll’s own lawyers had asked for. for.

Kaplan describes the ruling on the podcast, calling it a career-defining moment.

I have devoted my entire life to the principle that we have a rule of law and we have a justice system that works,’ Kaplan said. ‘And that is what makes us a constitutional democracy, it is – at least until recently – admired worldwide. And it started, I mean, it seems at times it might not be true.’

She said the case confirmed they still had it ‘at least as of now’. Trump has vowed to appeal the decision.
