E. Jean Carroll sued Donald Trump for sexual assault, rape, and defamation. The former president was found liable for two out of three, sexual assault and defamation. The woman’s claims refer to a sexual assault that happened in 1996. According to the sources, this is the first time Donald Trump has been found guilty for these types of accusations, even though several other women have accused Trump for similar behaviors.

Shortly after the verdict was announced, Donald Trump addressed it via social media. “I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHO THIS WOMAN IS. THIS VERDICT IS A DISGRACE – A CONTINUATION OF THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT OF ALL TIME!” he wrote, as mentioned by People.

Given Trump’s recent arrest and indictment, and the verdict he received on May 9, people started wondering if he is still qualified to run for president in the 2024 elections. According to this source, he may still be able to run for president.

“There is no constitutional bar on a felon running for office. And given that the U.S. Constitution sets presidential qualifications, it is not clear that states could add to them, such as by barring felons from running for office.” an election law professor stated, as seen in the article.
