Trump asks court to let him dodge rape accuser’s suit

NEW YORK: President Trump urged a federal appeals court to rule that he qualifies as a government employee under a law that would let him dodge a defamation suit by E Jean Carroll, a columnist who claims he raped her two decades ago.
Trump on Friday asked the court to reverse a district judge’s finding from October that presidents aren’t covered by the Westfall Act of 1988, which protects government workers from being personally sued for actions related to their official duties.
