Former Apprentice Contestant Subpoenas Trump for Files on Assault Allegations

"All I can say is it's totally fake news - just fake".

The subpoena was originally issued by Summer Zervos in March, but entered into the court file in September, BuzzFeed News reported.

As Hollywood condemns the predatory behaviour of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, disturbing new footage has emerged of a pre-presidential Donald Trump bragging about hiring a teenage waitress simply because she was a "world-class beauty".

Donald explained that it was "made-up stuff, and it's disgraceful what happens". "A handsome girl, who was 17 or 18, applied to be a waitress", Trump said. The former Apprentice contestant came forward a few weeks before the 2016 election to say Trump had groped her and tried to kiss her without her consent in 2007.

It starts with a woman in the audience asking Trump how many jets he owns and if she could be a flight attendant. "To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago".

It also seeks documents on "any accusations" made during Trump's election campaign that he 'subjected any woman to unwanted sexual touching and/or sexually inappropriate behavior, ' and on the president's responses to allegations against him.

"Ms. Zervos does not and can not state a cause of action for defamation under California law, which applies here because Ms. Zervos is domiciled and was purportedly injured there". She claims Trump forcibly kissed her and touched her breast.

Trump, who was the Republican presidential candidate at that time had said that the comments recorded on the tape were "locker-room banter" and accused his adversaries of trying to tarnish his image. "This made me feel nervous and embarrassed, as this is not what I wanted or expected". Trump's lawyers have claimed the subpoena is "far-reaching" and that the suit is politically motivated.

Lawyers for the president, who have denied the allegations made by the women, have previously argued against the subpoena stating that it is too broad, and are arguing the lawsuit from Zervos should be either delayed until he is no longer in office, or dismissed entirely.

While the woman remains beside him, Trump launches into an anecdote about a teenager, a "17- or 18-year-old" who was a "world-class beauty", who applied to be a waitress with one of his businesses.

Trump's attorneys face an October 31 deadline to further respond in support of the request for the case to be dismissed. "Do you have a response to that?" a reporter asked Trump during a press conference with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the White House.
