According to a justice doc printed by the NY occasions, traces of a "Unidentified male DNA" have been detected, and the editorial author and author's lawyer has given Donald Trump and his legal professionals till March 2 to provide a DNA pattern from the president.

Last June, New York Magazine published an excerpt from Carroll's book "What Do We Need Men For?: A Modest Proposal", in which she alleged that in either 1995 or 1996 she ran into Trump as she was about to exit Bergdorf Goodman. They served a legal notice Thursday to one of Trump's lawyers demanding the sample.

Various completely different people have been examined and eradicated as doable contributors to the combo, primarily based on the lab report, which was obtained by The Associated Press.

In a statement on Thursday, Carroll said that since the alleged encounter with Trump, she had worn the dress only at a photoshoot for the NY article.

While the notice is a demand, such demands often spur court fights requiring a judge to weigh in on whether they will be enforced.

"She is trying to sell a new book - that should indicate her motivation", he said in one of various statements on the matter, saying that the book "should be sold in the fiction section". She seeks unspecified damages and Trump's retraction of his statements. "Testing unidentified male DNA on the dress she wore during that assault has become standard operating procedure in these circumstances given the remarkable advances in DNA technology, particularly where, as is the case here, other potential contributors have been excluded".

Summer Zervos, a one-time contestant on Trump's reality television show The Apprentice, has also sued him for defamation after he said she lied in claiming that he groped and forcibly kissed her.

"Unidentified male DNA on the dress could prove that Donald Trump not only knows who I am, but also that he violently assaulted me in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman and then defamed me by lying about it and impugning my character", Carroll said in a statement to the Associated Press Thursday.

President Donald Trump marked the 20th anniversary Friday of federal legislation to help combat human trafficking by dedicating a new White House position to the issue.

In response, Carroll sued Trump for defamation in November 2019. Two colleagues later came forward to corroborate her account.

After Clinton's DNA was found on the costume, he acknowledged an "inappropriate intimate relationship" with Lewinsky. Trump has denied knowing Carroll and the alleged encounter.

Clinton was impeached by the Dwelling in December 1998 and later acquitted by the Senate.
