Trump Accuser E. Jean Carroll Requests Samples of His DNA
Donald Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 20 women. The President has referred to all of the accusers as liars. Prior to the 2016 election, he vowed to sue each of the women, but has never filed any kind of lawsuit against them.
Some of the women have persisted in their claims. Former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos recently had her defamation suit against Trump paused by a New York City Court. And on Thursday, accuser E. Jean Carroll requested a sample of Trump’s DNA to be tested against a dress she has.
Carrol claims that the President raped her in a coat room during a 1987 party. There are photographs of the two at the event. Trump claims that the pictures were taken while he stood in a coat check line.
The accuser says that a sample of Trump’s DNA would prove she was telling the truth. Carroll says, “Unidentified male DNA on the dress could prove that Donald Trump not only knows who I am, but also that he violently assaulted me in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman and then defamed me by lying about it and impugning my character.”
The journalist continued, “As a result, we’ve requested a simple saliva sample from Mr. Trump to test his DNA, and there really is no valid basis for him to object.”
Trump and his lawyers have yet to comment on the most recent request from the accuser. The President has claimed in the past, however, that Carroll fabricated the claims to sell a book.
