Trump borrows Bill Clinton's legal strategy as he battles defamation lawsuit
President Trump is borrowing from former president Bill Clinton’s legal playbook as he fights a civil defamation lawsuit filed by a former The Apprentice
contestant who claims he sexually assaulted her.
Even as Trump has criticized his frenemy — the nation’s 42nd president and husband of presidential rival Hillary Clinton — Trump’s attorneys have invoked court arguments Clinton raised when he was accused of sexual abuse during the 1990s.
Clinton’s lawyers argued that no previous president had been compelled to submit to a civil damages action. They also contended that allowing the Jones case to proceed would cause “serious ramifications’ for the U.S. presidency.
“All but the most exceptional cases” should be deferred until after the president leaves office, the attorneys contended.
The Supreme Court ruled against Clinton by a 9-0 vote in 1997. The court’s decision, delivered by Justice John Paul Stevens, stated that federal courts have jurisdiction to handle such cases. “Like every other citizen who properly invokes that jurisdiction, (Jones) has a right to an orderly disposition of her claims,” Stevens said.
He spent four years trying to get the case dismissed or delayed until after his presidential tenure before agreeing to an $850,000 settlement that included no acknowledgment of any wrongdoing.
