A well-known American journalist who accused Donald Trump of rape asked the president on Thursday to give him a DNA sample to determine if it is equal to the genetic material found in his dress.
E. Jean Carroll, 76, said last June that Trump sexually assaulted her in a changer at the luxury Bergdorf Goodman store in the Fifth Avenue in New York in the mid 90s.
Carroll sued Trump for defamation in November. “She is not my type,” he said after the Trump incident, denying the aggression. A phrase that Carroll says damaged his reputation and his career.
As part of the lawsuit, his lawyer filed a motion asking Trump to undergo a physical exam to compare his DNA with the genetic material of “an unidentified man” found in a black dress that Carroll She says she was dressed when she was raped.
“The dress has been examined. We have the results. My lawyer @kaplanrobbie has notified the lawyer of @realDonaldTrump to deliver a sample of Trump’s DNA, “Carroll wrote on Twitter.
Carroll’s lawsuit describes how Trump met her by chance at the Manhattan store, asked him to help her buy a gift for a woman – a piece of lingerie – and then took her to a changing table, where supposedly he kissed her and raped her.
Trump then denied the accusations, called her a liar and said his only goal was to seek publicity to sell his new book.
The president said he did not know the writer – although later New York magazine He published a photo of the 1980s in which both appear together, in the company of Carroll’s husband – and that he would never have attacked her because the journalist “is not my type”.
Carroll, who has long written a column for the American edition of Elle magazine, is at least the sixteenth woman to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct before he was elected president.
Trump denies all accusations.
