FILE - In this March 4, 2020, photo, E. Jean Carroll talks to reporters outside a courthouse in New York. The U.S. Justice Department is seeking to take over President Donald Trump's defense in a defamation lawsuit brought by Carroll, who accused the president of raping her in a New York luxury department store in the mid-1990s. Federal lawyers asked a court Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020, to allow a legal move that could put the American people on the hook for any money she might be awarded. She says the president's comments, including that she was “totally lying” to sell a memoir, besmirched her character and harmed her career when he denied the rape allegations in 2019.
