An advice columnist who said President Trump raped her more than 20 years ago is seeking a DNA sample back up her allegations, according to a new report.
Lawyers for E. Jean Carroll on Thursday served a Trump attorney with a notice for the president to submit a sample on March 2 in Washington for “analysis and comparison against unidentified male DNA present on the dress,” the Associated Press reported.
Carroll filed a defamation suit against Trump in November after Trump denied her rape allegation. Her lawyer then had the dress, a black wool, coat-style garment, tested for evidence.
OMG…there’s a dress!! Trumps DNA may be on a Donna Karen coat dress that’s been hanging on the back of the alleged victims closet door since the 90’s😳😱 This may be the only test he can pass😉

A lab report with the legal notice says DNA found on the sleeves was a mix of at least four people, at least one of them male.
Several other people have been tested and eliminated as possible contributors to the mix, according to the lab report obtained by the AP.
Carroll, 75, first went public with the allegation against Trump in June, before the release of her book “What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal,” which contains a description of the alleged assault, which she said took place in a Manhattan department store dressing room.
Trump denied the allegation and accused Carroll of inventing it to boost book sales.
