Sen. Mitch McConnell was asked about the verdict that found Donald Trump liable in a civil case for sexual abuse and defamation of E. Jean Carroll.
RELATED: Donald Trump found liable in civil sexual abuse case. Here's what it means.
A federal jury found Donald Trump liable Tuesday in a civil case for sexual abuse and defamation of E. Jean Carroll in 1996 and said he should pay her $5 million in total damages, a verdict that could further complicate the former president's election bid in 2024.
The jury, which deliberated fewer than three hours, opted not to find Trump liable for rape but rather sexual abuse that injured Carroll. Trump told Fox News Digital he will appeal the verdict, and said on his Truth Social website that he still has "no idea" who Carroll is. "This verdict is a disgrace," the former president said in an all-caps post.
