Biden DOJ argues it should substitute for Trump as defendant in lawsuit

The Justice Department argued in a brief filed Monday that it should be permitted to substitute itself for former President Donald Trump as defendant in a defamation lawsuit brought by a longtime magazine columnist, E. Jean Carroll, who accused him of rape, continuing the argument it had initiated under the previous administration even as the White House has changed hands.
"Then-President Trump's response to Ms. Carroll's serious allegations of sexual assault included statements that questioned her credibility in terms that were crude and disrespectful," Justice Department lawyers wrote in a brief to the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals. "But this case does not concern whether Mr. Trump's response was appropriate. Nor does it turn on the truthfulness of Ms. Carroll's allegations."
Rather, the lawyers wrote, because they believe Trump was an employee of the government and that he acted "within the scope of employment," the department, rather than Trump personally, should serve as defendant in the case.
In submitting the brief Monday, the department continued the argument it has been making for months: that a president's comments are an official function of his job, even if they pertain to a personal matter. Since it first took that position, however, Trump has been replaced by President Joe Biden, and while the brief the department filed included plenty of unkind words regarding the former President's behavior, it will benefit Trump if it succeeds.
"Speaking to the public and the press on matters of public concern is undoubtedly part of an elected official's job," they wrote. "Courts have thus consistently and repeatedly held that allegedly defamatory statements made in that context are within the scope of elected officials' employment -- including when the statements were prompted by press inquiries about the official's private life."
The White House said it hadn't been consulted by the Justice Department before the brief was filed.

Donald Trump would love to play the historical processes of Fidel Castro's ' The History will absolve me..' after the Moncada Garrison failed coup. US justice ♎⚖️ must be stern in not letting that happen for his prospective re-election campaign in 2024 ,when Trump would incite in public court his follows to follow another suit in insurrection.

Elliott William's legal argumentation is sound on the incongruent legality of Donal Trump substitute of his defendant figure head before Jury's deliberative efforts since you have a former full-fledged President elect of the United States of America appearing in public court . Trump has to respond in full as any normal US citizen in such delicate situation

The tradition of not prosecuting the president for crimes is something that has to be looked at seriously! And real plain language has to be used when writing any new law in the future since Republicans seem to want to play games whenever it's their guy under the microscope!

Actually, that’s not a bad idea? Maybe they’ll put a public defender in place? They certainly wouldn’t fight the case with corruption, so her chances of winning go up. And, if she wins, against trump the, “employee of the government,” that opens him up to abuse of power charges, and doing bad things as a government employee generally? . . . Think about it? . . . 🤔😉

CNN you brought back an FBI agent fired for lying to senate and investigated Trump illegally with Democrats secret funding. You also hired back a guy who jack off on national TV. You represent the views of radicals and fake minorities not the majority of American... but you portray yourself as real unbiased rational mainstream news. Completely BS.

Is this the Biden strategy in case the Tara Reed case becomes relevant again? Donald Trump is and was the very best president in our history. You people need help. If you can't see the chasm of difference between Donald Trump and his family and Joe Biden and his family then you are confirming TDS is very real and very scary for those of you who continue to deny the will and the choice of the people of this nation. We did N O T elect Joe, he was forced on us by the people who paid for his election, completely bypassing the will and the choice of the people. Don't you guys get it? We all know how the race was "saved" by "fortifying" the vote. Which, btw, will be revealed in uncertain terms very soon. America is not stupid and all you meanstream news outlets are tanking and we all know it, and worst of all, it's your own fault because your judgment mechanism is badly broken, evidenced by your cockamamie criticisms of a man who took your ship for four years without let up and came out as one of the most beloved men on the planet. My opinion, y'all are too stupid to see what the entire rest of the country sees. You guys need to wake up, you are on the losing and wrong side of simple reasoning. God bless America and Patriots everywhere.

BS !!!! a lawsuit is a lawsuit and a panel of 12 jurors should decide !!!! The DOJ is setting a precedence if they proceed with this nonsense !!!

The DOJ should not be protecting Trump because Trump is accused of criminal misconduct... which the DOJ should be investigating in the first place, regardless of what office the person is in. Trump is an employee, not a king, and the DOJ would investigate other employees accused of criminal misconduct. So at best they have a conflict of interest and at worst they should be on the other side of the table. And the thing of 'well they have to protect employees'... No.. they would be defending a DOJ employee working in a DOJ capacity. Trump was not a DOJ employee. He was a federal employee. But the DOJ would investigate someone at the FBI, CIA, rest of the alphabets, they should be investigating Trump
