Former President Donald Trump’s attempts to get out of a lawsuit by former columnist E. Jean Carroll were denied according to court filings.
Carroll sued the then-president for defamation, but the suit has been caught up in litigation since the Trump-era Justice Department. Attorney General Merrick Garland agreed to defend Trump in court because he was president.
E. Jean Carroll accused President Donald Trump of raping her in New York in 1995 or 1996. Trump denied the claim, stating that he had never met Carroll and that “she’s not my type.”
Carroll has asked that Trump provide a DNA sample, saying that she has his DNA on the clothing she wore when he allegedly raped her.
