The opposition to Donald Trump never takes even one day off.
With the Russian collusion hoax collapsing, President Trump’s enemies are dredging up an old line of attack.
And now all hell is breaking loose after a woman filed this lawsuit against Trump.
A former campaign worker filed a lawsuit claiming Trump tried to kiss her on the lips as he exited a bus for an election rally back in 2016.
The Washington Post reports:
In interviews with The Washington Post, and in the lawsuit, Alva Johnson said Trump grabbed her hand and leaned in to kiss her on the lips as he exited an RV outside the rally in Tampa on Aug. 24, 2016. Johnson said she turned her head and the unwanted kiss landed on the side of her mouth, which she called “super-creepy and inappropriate.”
“I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it,” she said. “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.”
Johnson said she told her boyfriend, mother and stepfather about the incident later that day, an account all three confirmed to The Post. Two months later, Johnson consulted a Florida attorney about the unwanted kiss; he gave The Post text messages showing that he considered her “credible” but did not take her case for business reasons. The attorney gave Johnson the name of a therapist, whose notes, which The Post reviewed, reference an unspecified event during the campaign that had left her distraught.
Trump supporters cast doubt on this story.
And they had good reason to question this account.
The Post also reports that the lawsuit cited two witnesses to the event – Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and another campaign official.
Both denied Trump tried kiss the woman or that this event even took place.
Trump supporters were reminded of the Access Hollywood tape “October surprise.”
After that tape dropped, a dozen women lined up to hurl shaky allegations that Trump sexually assaulted them.
Trump denied all claims and said the attacks were politically motivated.
Once again, this question of sexual misconduct rears its head just as the Russia story is receding.
And once again, the timing of the accusations is raising suspicions.
