Judge Rejects Trump’s DNA Sample Offer in E. Jean Carroll Rape Defamation Case

A federal judge in New York City has rejected an offer from President Donald Trump to provide a DNA sample in the ongoing rape defamation case brought against him by E. Jean Carroll.

The case centers around a defamation lawsuit filed by Carroll, a journalist and author, who alleged that Trump had raped her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s. Trump has denied the allegation and has sought to prove his innocence with a DNA sample.

However, Judge Lewis A. Kaplan ruled that Trump’s offer had come too late and that it was not relevant to the case.

The judge’s decision comes after Trump’s lawyers argued that the DNA sample was necessary to prove that the president’s denial of the allegation was true. The lawyers also argued that the DNA sample would show that Trump had not been in the store at the time of the alleged rape.

The judge, however, ruled that the DNA sample was not necessary to prove Trump’s innocence and that the evidence presented in the case was sufficient.

The decision is a major setback for Trump, who had sought to prove his innocence with the DNA sample. It also comes after Trump’s lawyers had argued that the DNA sample would show that the president had not been in the store at the time of the alleged rape.

The ruling is the latest development in the ongoing legal battle between Trump and Carroll. The case is set to go to trial in November.
