Zervos, a former contestant on “The Apprentice,” accused Trump of sexually inappropriate conduct prior to the presidential elction.

Summer Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit a year ago in which she claimed Trump groped and sexually assaulted her. He called Zervos and other female accusers “liars.” Trump’s lawyers have fought to keep the case from going to trial, dismissing it as “totally meritless” and arguing that a state court has no jurisdiction over a sitting president. A New York judge is expected to rule any day on whether it should proceed.

Trump Accuser Rachel Crooks Is Running For Office

  Trump Accuser Rachel Crooks Is Running For Office Rachel Crooks, one of the 19 women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, announced Monday that she is running for the Ohio state Legislature. Crooks, a 35-year-old director of international student recruitment at Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio, told Cosmopolitan magazine that she was inspired to run for office in part because she wants to be a voice for women who have suffered sexual harassment and because Trump has never been held accountable for allegedly kissing her without her consent in 2005.

Zervos, a former contestant on Trump’s reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” is the only one of about a dozen women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct shortly before the 2016 presidential election to have brought legal action. Her complaint details phone calls and meetings that could be used to verify — or refute — her allegations, and her attorneys could call other accusers to the stand to describe Trump’s behavior. Zervos declined to be interviewed.

Trump has denied Zervos’s account of an alleged December 2007 encounter at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago,” he said when she made her accusation.

Judge Declines to Toss Brett Ratner’s Libel Suit Against Rape Accuser

  Judge Declines to Toss Brett Ratner’s Libel Suit Against Rape Accuser A federal judge in Hawaii refused on Thursday to dismiss producer Brett Ratner’s libel lawsuit against a woman who accused him of rape. Attorneys for the accuser, Melanie Kohler, had urged Judge Helen Gillmor to throw out the case, arguing that it was intended to discourage other women from coming forward. They also argued that the four-page lawsuit was not sufficiently detailed to sustain a claim for defamation. Gillmor found that the claim was sufficient to survive the motion to dismiss.“This case is going to come down to whether what she said was true, and we’re going to have to try the case to determine that,” Eric Seitz, an attorney for Ratner, said.

Kathleen Willey, who accused Bill Clinton of groping her in 1993 and appeared with Donald Trump and other accusers at the second presidential debate, says she is willing to Bravest dog in Britain: Even when a violent thug plunged a 10 INCH blade into his side, Finn the police dog refused to let go .

The White House referred questions about Trump’s whereabouts at the time to his private lawyer Marc Kasowitz, who did not respond to a request for comment. He has previously dismissed the claim as politically motivated.

In her complaint, Zervos said she asked to meet with Trump that month at Trump Tower in New York, seeing him as a “potential employer.” Zervos claims Trump dubbed her his “OC Angel,” referring to her California home county, and invited her to meet him for dinner in Los Angeles. The suit details phone calls from Trump to make arrangements.

The complaint says Trump’s security guard escorted Zervos to a hotel bungalow, where Trump showed little interest in dining out: Instead, the complaint alleges, he kissed and groped her, suggested they watch “telly-telly,” and led her to the bedroom where “he began to press his genitals against her.”

When Zervos rejected Trump, he became “all business,” she alleges. She said he ordered a club sandwich from room service, then doled out financial advice. He suggested Zervos let her mortgage “go into default,” the complaint says: “He said that it was a mini version of what he does.”

White House refuses to release photo of Trump signing bill to weaken gun law

  White House refuses to release photo of Trump signing bill to weaken gun law Nearly a year ago, Trump signed a bill that made it easier for people with mental illness to obtain guns. CBS News asked for a photo of the signingWhite House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders finally responded to repeated emails and phone calls with a one-line note on April 19, 2017, writing to CBS News, "We don't plan to release the picture at this time.

The accuser , who chooses to go by pseudonym Jane Doe, was 13 at the time. “Jane Doe has received numerous threats today, as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented,” said attorney Lisa Bloom.

Trump took aim at Democratic lawmakers who refused to applaud during his speech last week when he mentioned his achievements during his first year in office, a reaction he called “un-American.” “If they ever took over, your taxes would go way up and you would see some bad things happen.”

They met briefly the next day at his Rancho Palos Verdes golf course, the complaint alleges. Soon after, Zervos claims, the general manager offered her a position at “half the salary” she was seeking.”

A job with the Trump Organization would have been a change from the challenges of her parents’ beach town restaurant work. Court records show they ran into financial problems when Zervos was a teenager.

“They went bankrupt at the same time that Donald Trump did,” Zervos told the Orange County Register in 2006 in an interview about her reality TV role. “He came out a little better than we did.”

In 2005, Zervos joined her brother, Shado, in purchasing a $900,000 house in a new development, according to property records. That same year, on an overcast Saturday morning, Zervos answered NBC’s call for “a new group of a---kissing b-school, type A personalities to compete as part of The Apprentice 5.”

The first of 17 nationwide tryouts was held five minutes from Sunny’s, the diner owned by Zervos’s family, where a Trump impersonator cajoled applicants hoping to compete for a $250,000 one-year contract with Trump’s company.

Dan Simon, then a data company salesman, said he met Zervos in line and that they were interviewed by show producer Mark Burnett, who asked provocative questions.

“Should prostitution be legalized?” Simon recalled Burnett asking. Burnett seemed to zero in on Zervos as she gave answers that Simon remembered being “liberal as liberal can be.”

Selection for the show did not guarantee a big payoff. Scott Salyers, the supervising casting producer, said contestants received modest stipends.

When the show began on the tarmac by Trump’s jet, Zervos joined a team assigned to sell Sam’s Club memberships.

Trump turned on her in a boardroom meeting when Zervos spoke up to defend her team leader.

“Why should you interrupt me when I’m knocking the hell out of him?” Trump demanded. “By interrupting me, what are you doing to yourself?”

“I’m being truthful,” Zervos said, “and I’ll always be truthful.”

“How stupid is that, right?” Trump asked.

“It’s not stupid,” Zervos retorted. “If I stay, I want to stay on the truth,” she said, prompting Trump’s famous response:

“You know what, Summer? You’re fired!” he said.

Zervos was the first contestant banished to a New Jersey apartment complex to wait until shooting ended. She then returned to Sunny’s.

According to her complaint, Zervos contacted Trump again in 2009, 2010 and 2016.

Trump denies accusations of forcibly kissing woman in 2006

  Trump denies accusations of forcibly kissing woman in 2006 President Trump on Tuesday issued a denial of claims printed in the Washington Post by a woman who says he forcibly kissed her in the lobby of an office building in New York City a decade ago. In a tweet, the president rejected accusations from Rachel Crooks, a then-22-year-old secretary in a neighboring office building who says Trump grabbed her and began forcibly kissing her upon meeting him in 2006.

Harth is among the Trump accusers for whom attorney Lisa Bloom tried to arrange payoffs to tell their stories. Kris Jenner refuses to confirm if Kylie is calling baby girl Butterfly or Posie adding the star, 20, will reveal the moniker.

Her suit is not about fame, nor was her accusation politically motivated, her attorneys have said. She is asking for $2,914 in economic losses as well as unspecified emotional damages.

Zervos’s critics point to an email the Trump campaign posted, in which her cousin who worked at Sunny’s speculates that “Summer’s actions are nothing more than an attempt to regain the spotlight at Mr. Trump’s expense.” The cousin, John Barry, did not return phone calls.

The Zervos family’s struggles continued, according to public records. Property records indicate that Deutsche Bank initiated foreclosure proceedings in 2009 against Zervos and her brother. Sunny’s moved out of a downtown location in 2010, back to a more modest mall. Zervos’s father and brother did not respond to messages.

Her family and close friends refer inquiries to Gloria Allred, her attorney. “Summer and her family are not doing any interviews,” Allred wrote.

Some residents here who have known or worked with Zervos for years are following her confrontation with Trump. They say she often referred to her Trump connection after returning from the filming to work at Sunny’s, her family’s diner.

“She was a small-town girl, [and] all of a sudden people knew who she is,” recalled Amanda Hesser, a former restaurant server.
