Trump Subpoenaed by Former 'The Apprentice' Contestant Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

His lawyer attempted to have Zervos' defamation lawsuit dismissed in July, claiming that presidents can not face civil lawsuits while in office. However, it was only recently entered into court filings as part of evidence, disputing allegations from Trump's legal team that the subpoena is both "far reaching" and "seeks wholly irrelevant information intended exclusively to harass the president".

In response, Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit and claimed that she had been inaccurately labeled a liar following the public reveal of her claims.

Zervos and several other women who made similar allegations came forward after a 2005 videotape of Trump bragging about groping women surfaced in early October.

Trump also dismissed Zervos' and another woman's accusations at a rally, calling them "total fiction", "all false stuff" and said that there is a "concerted effort" to take down his campaign. Zervos filed her suit in New York Supreme Court back on January 17, three days before Trump became the 45th President of the United States.

While it's commendable that Trump gave a young girl with no work experience the chance to be employed, we wish he said he hired the youth for her gumption or her willingness to work hard.

Zervos's lawyers have since denied that accusation, and provided the subpoena as evidence.

The woman who has subpoenaed the documents, Summer Zervos, was formerly a contestant on Trump's reality TV show The Apprentice. His attorneys argued that he is protected from civil lawsuits in state court while occupying the Oval Office.

The museum is the only place outside the White House where visitors can view a complete collection of presidential portraits. The former first lady chose up-and-coming Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald to paint her portrait.

His lawyers also said if the case isn't dropped at least it should be stayed until he leaves office.

Let's not forget that Donald has been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual misconduct. As for the subpoena, they argued that it is "far reaching" and "seeks wholly irrelevant information intended exclusively to harass the president". "Indeed, Ms. Allred herself has questioned how the President could run the country if faced with broad discovery".

"Contrary to Defendants' spin, this case is not about robust political debate".

Trump critics have noted the irony of statements about the Weinstein accusations by both the White House and Fox, which has pushed the president's agenda-in light of the allegations against Trump.

That motion to dismiss could decide the merit of this subpoena, according to Gloria Allred, the famed women's rights attorney representing Zervos.

Donald Trump has been issued a subpoena asking for any documents he has concerning women who've accused the US President of touching them "inappropriately".
