Woman Demands Trump Campaign Hand Over Docs Dealing With Assault Accusations

According to Buzzfeed, the subpoena came from attorneys for Summer Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice who has accused Trump of kissing and groping her in 2007.

A high-stakes legal showdown is brewing for President Donald Trump, as a woman who said he groped her has subpoenaed all documents from his campaign pertaining to "any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately". After Zervos made the accusation last October, just weeks before the election, Trump denied her accusation and called it a lie. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I've conducted my life. Ms. Zervos was not a political opponent, nor was she a political commentator routinely engaged in criticizing candidates. As well as all documents concerning any women who alleged that president Trump inappropriately touched them. Trump refuted all the allegations.

The subpoena is here, and the original lawsuit filing is here if you want to read the details of Zervos's accusations and be grossed out.

On the recording, Trump boasted about how he kisses and touches women without their permission - "I don't even wait", he said - and claimed he's able to get away with it due to his celebrity.

Zervos sued Trump for defamation in New York State Supreme Court after he denied her account of their meeting and accused her and other women of lying.

But some were already branded in China with familiar names like Walmart or Sea Queen - which is sold exclusively at Aldi supermarkets.

BuzzFeed website first reported on the subpoena late on Sunday.

Trump's lawyers have said that they believe this matter has no standing, at least while their client is in the Oval Office. She said campaign officials gave assurances that the documents be preserved which they did.

Other arguments used include claiming the lawsuit is politically motivated and lawyers have said Zervos is looking for irrelevant information only to harass Trump. As for the subpoena, they argued that it is "far reaching" and "seeks wholly irrelevant information intended exclusively to harass the president". The president's lawyer tried to have the suit dismissed in July, claiming that a sitting president can not face a civil lawsuit.

"It's fake, it's made up stuff and it's disgraceful what happens, but that happens in the world of politics", the former Apprentice host added in typical form in a 45-minute wide ranging press conference in the White House Rose Garden on Monday.

Trump's lawyers have until Halloween to reply to Zervos' opposition, at which time a hearing on the matter will be set.
