Former 'Apprentice' Star Subpoenas Trump Amid Sexual Harassment Claims
Oct 17, 2017, 00:39
Summer Zervos is a former Apprentice contestant who is suingDonald Trump for allegedly groping her and kissing her when she went to his bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel for a meeting about a potential job back in 2007.
According to Zervos' suit, "Mr Trump became obsessed with calling Ms Zervos and any other woman who came forward to report his abuse liars with improper motives".
The subpoena was issued in March of this year and is a part of her defamation lawsuit against Trump for denying the claims she presented.
At least ten women who have accused Trump of groping them are named, including Jessica Leeds, Mindy McGillivray, Rachel Crooks, Natasha Stoynoff, Temple Taggart, Kristin Anderson, Cathy Heller, Jill Harth, and Jessica Drake.
In fact, Summer Zervos and several other women had made similar accusations aimed at Donald Trump after the release in October of 2016, a video recording dating from 2005, in which the future republican nominee boasted " to be able to get (the women) by the pussy ".
But when she spoke about about the alleged incident only a few weeks before the Presidential election Trump claimed she was lying.
The subpoena was served to the campaign, but Zervos' lawyers and the campaign agreed to suspend the response date until after a motion to dismiss the lawsuit is decided, Mariann Wang, one of her attorneys, told CNN.
Buzzfeed News first reported the existence of the court document, which names Trump's campaign organization and any applicable "directors, officers, partners, shareholders, managers, attorneys, employees, agents and representatives" as subjects. Trump's lawyers have tried to bat away the charges, insisting that the president is protected from civil lawsuits in state court while he's in office.
"Lawyers for Trump said the suit "... has no lawful legitimacy", that these were "popularity looking for allegations" and contended the claim ought to be rejected. The allegedly defamatory statements were made during a national political campaign that involved heated political debate in political forums.
Neither the White House or Trump's attorney have commented on the matter as yet.
"You do not have the right to treat women as sexual objects just because you are a star", Zervos said in October, addressing Trump directly.
