Hoffman Behind Trump Suit
Trump lawsuit funder Reid Hoffman, who says he cares about survivors of abuse, visited Epstein’s Island after Epstein was convicted on charges of raping underage teens. Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Hoffman visited Epstein’s Little St. James Island in the Caribbean and also made plans to stay at Epstein’s New York City townhouse, back in 2014.
Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, commands a fortune of some $2 billion, so much he hardly needs to be spreading the sheets at his friends’ houses.
Now we learn that Hoffman contributed the funding to enable E. Jean Carroll, a former Elle Magazine advice columnist, to sue former President Donald Trump. She brought battery and defamation charges relating to a supposed rape that occurred in a New York department store dressing room nearly 30 years ago. It’s so long ago, that Carroll can’t even remember if the alleged incident happened in late 1995 or early 1996. Here’s more from Robert Gouveia.
