President Donald Trump’s lawyers urged a judge Wednesday to halt a lawsuit from a woman seeking Trump’s DNA to help prove her claim that he raped her in the 1990s, though her lawyer offered to hold off the DNA request for a time.
Former advice columnist E. Jean Carroll is suing Trump for calling her a liar when she went public with her rape allegation last year. Trump’s lawyers argue her case — including the DNA request — needs to wait until New York’s highest court rules in a separate case against him. That ruling could take several months or longer.
Judge Verna Saunders gave no indication Wednesday how or when she might rule on whether to pause Carroll’s case.
Carroll, who watched from the courtroom audience, said afterward she’s pursuing the suit “not just for myself but for every woman in America who’s been grabbed, groped, harassed, sexually assaulted, and has spoken out and still has been disgraced, shamed or fired.”
Carroll says Trump assaulted her in a luxury department store dressing room in the mid-1990s, after they bumped into each other and bantered about trying on a bodysuit.
Trump said Carroll was “totally lying” to sell a memoir that was published last year, adding in one interview that “she’s not my type.”
He said he’d never met Carroll, shrugging off a 1987 photo of them and their then-spouses at a social event as simply a snapshot of a moment when he was standing in a line.
Carroll is seeking a DNA sample from Trump to see whether it matches as-yet-unidentified male genetic material found on a dress that she says she was wearing during the alleged attack. Carroll says she hasn’t laundered the dress and donned it only once since, for a photoshoot last year.

U.S. Presidents are shielded from the responsibilities of ordinary citizenship. Secret Service Protection, Courts and Judges indulging him delaying claims from being heard, delaying orders for him to produce tax returns or semen samples and on and on and on. What do we have a Vice President for? Our President must be treated just like any ordinary citizen lest he forget what citizenship is all about. Our country has degenerated to a virtual monarchy. The president could likely go out the front door with a gun, shoot the first person on the street and nothing would be done in the interest of so called Justice. History books are full of lies and have been for many years. The late General George Patton, did not die in an innocent car accident in 1945. He was murdered by ambush by a paid U.S. Military Hit Man, paid $10,000 in 1945 by OSS General Donovan to plan and murder Patton under orders from the top. Patton was not dead at the scene but finished off at the hospital. Most of the top brass did not even attend his funeral. Patton was considered the greatest general of WWII by the German Generals. America has degenerated into a shameful disgrace to itself and the world. Donald Adolph is a cowardly premeditated murderer of General Solemani of Iran. Trump does not possess a conscience. He is a very dangerous psychopath running the asylum in America today.
