Recently revealed transcripts of Donald Trump’s testimony in the E. Jean Carroll case show that the former president confused Carroll with his ex-wife Marla Maples in a photo.

Transcripts show that during his testimony in October 2022, Trump was shown a black and white photo in which he interacts with several people, including his then-wife Ivana, Carroll and her then-husband.

“I don’t know who – it’s Marla,” Trump said upon seeing the photo. “That’s Marla, yes. That’s my wife,” he says when asked to clarify.

Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba, intervened and said “no, it’s Carroll,” according to the transcript.

Carroll first sued Trump in 2019 for defamation after he denied the rape charge. She filed a second lawsuit against Trump in November under a new law that allowed her to sue for assault even if the felony statute of limitations had passed.

Trump has denied sexually assaulting the former magazine columnist and said he has never pressured a woman to have sex with him, according to a transcript of the deposition that was opened last week.

In the transcript of his testimony, Trump reiterated earlier comments that he didn’t know Carroll and that she’s not his type, a claim that may come into question following his response to his showing the photograph.

Trump said that while it’s not “politically correct” to say she’s not his type, he said he had to stand up for himself. He added that it wasn’t meant to be an insult.

When asked if he has ever kissed a woman without her consent, Trump testified: “Well, I don’t… I can’t think of any complaints. But not. I mean, I don’t think so. He also denied touching a woman’s breasts or buttocks.

Carroll’s attorney Roberta Kaplan asked Trump, “Have you ever pressured a woman to have sex with you?”

“The answer is no. But you may have some people, like your client, who are willing to lie,” Trump testified.
