A New York advice columnist who claims President Donald Trump raped her two decades ago asked a judge to deny his request to put her defamation lawsuit on hold until a related lawsuit is resolved -- which might not happen until after the November election.

E. Jean Carroll, who went public with her claims in June, said in a court filing on Tuesday that Trump is using questionable delay tactics to avoid her requests for discovery and a DNA sample that she says may help her case.
