Trump accuser Summer Zervos has documents that prove he was at the Beverly Hills hotel where the alleged sexual assault took place
In 2017, the former 'Apprentice' contestant filed a lawsuit against Trump saying that he had defamed her by denying the sexual assault allegations against him and calling her a liar
Former 'Apprentice' contestant Summer Zervos has said that new unsealed documents support her allegations that President Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in 2007. Zervos was referring to emails and calendar entries from the Trump Organization that she says back her claims, Variety reported.
In 2017, Zervos filed a lawsuit against Trump saying that he had defamed her by denying the allegations against him and calling her a liar after she came out about it publicly in 2016.
According to Zervos' lawyer Mariann Wang, the unsealed documents show that Trump was staying at the Beverly Hills hotel on December 21 and 22 in 2007, and that Zervos had asked to meet with him in New York.
Zervos claims that the two met in his office that month and that he kissed her twice. Then, in the same month, the two met again at Trump's place at the Beverly Hills Hotel where she alleges that he kissed her without consent and grabbed her breast, following which he took her to the bedroom and tried to "press himself against her" after she got away in the beginning.
The court filing also contains an email written by Zervos to Fox News dated August 9, 2015, where she said that he "had a different agenda".
"I was on the 'Apprentice'. After the show was completed, Trump invited me to a hotel room under the guise of working for him. He had a different agenda. Please contact me to speak further as I have tried to make contact," she wrote. The subject line said, "Trump Hit On Me."
In the filing, her attorney Wang said, "The fact that plaintiff sought legal counsel in 2011 and spoke about this to others including a news organization—years before the events of 2016 at issue in this case—strongly supports the inferences that her core narrative is true."
She also says that these documents are proof that the two “were exactly where she said they were exactly when she said they were there.”
Trump's lawyer Marc Kasowitz has slammed the claims and said, "Ms. Zervos' claims are entirely meritless and not corroborated by any documents."
Zervos also claimed that she had been invited by Trump to the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes after the two met at the Beverly Hills Hotel. His calendar revealed that he was supposed to be at the Club on December 22 in the first half of the day. The court has ordered Trump to sit for a deposition in the case by December 6 while the motions for summary judgment in the case are slated for March 31, 2020.
