Woman accusing Trump of misconduct subpoenas presidential campaign

Last October, shortly before the November 8 presidential election, Zervos held a news conference to say that Trump kissed her, touched her breast and tried to get her to lie down on a bed with him during a meeting about a possible job.

President Donald Trump again dismissed former "Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos's allegations that he kissed and groped her during a 2007 meeting, calling her claims "fake news".

Unlike the allegations against himself, Trump has been quick to say he believes the women alleging Weinstein sexually assaulted and harassed them are telling the truth. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I've conducted my life.

Zervos filed a defamation suit against Trump in January.

In a statement Allred said: "We are hopeful that the court will deny President Trump's motion to dismiss, so that we may move forward with discovery and obtain relevant documents and testimony". In the subpoena, they are also requesting for documents pertaining to other women who have also accused Trump of groping them, including Jessica Leeds, Mindy McGillivray, Rachel Crooks, to name a few.

Trump said on Twitter and in public statements last October that all of the women were pushing "false allegations and outright lies" in an effort to help elect Hillary Clinton as president. She said campaign officials gave assurances that the documents be preserved which they did.

The contents of the subpoena were first reported by BuzzFeed on Sunday. His lawyer attempted to have Zervos' defamation lawsuit dismissed in July, claiming that presidents can not face civil lawsuits while in office. Facing accusations of inappropriate behavior from a number of women, Trump also sought to downgrade Zervos' claims by detailing how she continued to pursue a job with him long after the alleged incidents of sexual harassment. According to NBC News, Zervos' lawyers and Trump's campaign have agreed to suspend the subpoena response date until after a motion to dismiss the lawsuit is decided. His lawyers argued that he is protected from civil lawsuits in state court while in office. They said it targeted 'wholly irrelevant information intended exclusively to harass the president'.

Only time will tell if anything comes of this, but between the Russian Federation investigation and Trump's history of alleged sexual assault, it seems like almost every single document from the 2016 Trump campaign will wind up being presented in court one day.

The White House has not commented on the filing.
