President Donald Trump denounced accusations going back to the 1990s from writer E. Jean Carroll, who he “had nothing to do with.”

“This ‘Ms. Bergdorf Goodman’ case is a complete con job, and our legal system in this Country, but especially in New York State (just look at Peekaboo James), is a broken disgrace,” Trump wrote in an official statement shared through his Save America PAC this week.

Per Fox News, a federal judge ruled this week that Trump would have to endure a deposition in a defamation lawsuit filed by Carroll, who alleged that the president assaulted her in the ’90s in a dressing room at a department store called Bergdorf Goodman.

Trump added that the decision came from the judge “who was just overturned on my same case.”

“I don’t know this woman, have no idea who she is, other than it seems she got a picture of me many years ago, with her husband, shaking my hand on a reception line at a celebrity charity event,” Trump continued. “She completely made up a story that I met her at the doors of a crowded New York City Department Store and, within minutes, ‘swooned’ her. It is a Hoax and a lie, just like all the other Hoaxes that have been played on me for the past seven years.”

President Trump’s full statement

On Truth Social, Trump additionally shared an advertisement slamming Carroll’s allegations, using clips from a seemingly disorganized interview the writer took part in on CNN with Anderson Cooper.

“A former playboy editor is losing badly to President Trump,” the commercial stated, “in a frivolous lawsuit after she embarrassed herself on CNN.”

Trump’s lengthy statement on the case also quipped that Carroll was not his type. “She has no idea what day, what week, what month, what year, or what decade this so-called ‘event’ supposedly took place,” he said. “The reason she doesn’t know is because it never happened and she doesn’t want to get caught up with details or facts that can be proven wrong.”

According to the Fox News report, Trump’s deposition is scheduled to take place on Oct. 19.

“Now all I have to do is go through years more of legal nonsense in order to clear my name of her and her lawyer’s phony attacks on me,” Trump concluded. “This can only happen to ‘Trump!’”
