Advice columnist E. Jean Carroll speaks to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell during "The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell" on June 21, 2019. A Modest Proposal, Carroll recounts her experience running into Trump as she was leaving Bergdorf Goodman in 1995 or 1996. She says he told her, "Hey, you're that advice lady", and she replied, "Hey, you're that real estate mogul", and then he asked for her help in choosing a present for "a girl".
Carroll claims that Trump unzipped his trousers, forced his fingers into her crotch, and then inserted his penis "halfway - or completely, I'm not certain - inside me".
"I have no idea who this woman is", Trump told reporters at the White House, as he left for weekend meetings at Camp David. Moonves told the magazine he emphatically denies the account.
Carroll has not mentioned the article or her allegation on Twitter but this tweet is posted to the top of her page.
Trump is among a number of men who forced themselves on her, Carroll alleges in her book.
Carroll, 75, a longtime advice columnist for Elle magazine, is among 16 women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct over the past several decades.
"If anyone has information that the Democratic Party is working with Ms. Carroll or New York Magazine, please notify us as soon as possible", he said. If they do accept any part of it, they'll insist that the encounter was consensual; that Carroll was a pathetic 52-year-old woman throwing herself at a "good-looking", slightly younger gazillionaire; that any contact Trump had with her was some sort of sexual philanthropy. "I have no idea who she is", he said. She said she didn't come forward with her story until now because she feared how people would react.
Trump Says New Iran Sanctions Begin Monday

Iran says it will confront any USA threat as tension spikes
A senior Arab diplomat said the sharply increased tensions would further harm the crisis-hit Middle East region. President Donald Trump through Oman overnight, warning that a U.S. attack on Iran was imminent.
Trump also suggested Carroll's allegations may be part of a conspiracy being driven by his political opponents. Maybe they are all lying, but coupled with his admission, I think some of them are probably telling the truth. But then Trump became violent, Carroll wrote, going on to describe her rape in a dressing room.
"And I say to No. 20 on the Most Hideous Men of My Life List: "Hey, you're that real-estate tycoon!'", she writes".
At least 15 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, with many coming forward in the wake of the 2016 Access Hollywood tape, in claims that range from harassment to sexual assault.
"I am so shocked I shove him back and start laughing again", the accusation continues. "You can do anything", Trump was recorded saying.
He said she was making up "lies" in order to sell her forthcoming book and stated she should "pay dearly for such false accusations".
People who know Carroll vouched for her character Saturday and said it was not in her personal or professional interest to make up a story about Trump. She posed for the NY magazine cover wearing a coatdress she claims she wore when she was attacked by Trump.
The other friend, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to protect her privacy, said Carroll called her either the day of the alleged attack or the next day and described the assault.
