The two women E. Jean Carroll told about an alleged sexual attack by Donald Trump in the 1990s have come forward and acknowledged the conflicting advice they gave her, The New York Times is reporting.
The women are speaking publicly for the first time in an interview excerpted on The New York Times podcast “The Daily.” They are identified as Carol Martin, who was a news anchor in New York from 1975-1995 and Lisa Birnbach, who is a best-selling author.
Carroll has claimed that the alleged attack took place more than 20 years ago in a dressing room of a New York City department store. She described the alleged incident in an excerpt published last Friday by New York Magazine from her upcoming book.
Trump has denied the allegation, saying has never met Carroll and “she’s not my type.”
But Birnbach said she told Carroll to call police after learning of the alleged attack.
Martin, however, said she thought Trump was too powerful. “I said: ‘Don’t tell anybody. I wouldn’t tell anybody this.’”
Carroll had remained silent about the alleged incident for decades.
