I have no words for this…
Back in February former Trump campaign staffer Alva Johnson claimed the President forcibly kissed her without her consent when they were alone in a campaign RV. Newly released video proves she lied.
Johnson, who sought a job in the Trump White House, confirmed during a deposition Monday that the incident on video is the one she described in her lawsuit.
The video demonstrates that Johnson was not attacked and did not feel threatened by Trump, Harder said.
“If Plaintiff had been attacked, as she alleges, one would expect a far different response than telling him she’ll help him get elected President of the United States,” said Harder. “That is the response of a person who is moved in a positive way by her candidate’s show of appreciation and recognition of her dedicated service to his campaign.”
Johnson’s lawyer disputed Harder’s assertion that the video exonerates Trump.
“We are gratified and pleased that we finally have proof what Ms. Johnson has been alleging in this lawsuit,” Hassan Zavareei, a lawyer for Johnson, told Politico. “It is basically exactly what Ms. Johnson has been saying.”
He said besides a few small differences, the video is “basically identical” to what Johnson described in her suit.
He acknowledged the exchange with Trump did not “look dramatic,” but added, “That does not mean it wasn’t a serious battery.”
“It’s a battery because she didn’t want it to happen,” Zavareei said. “It’s not an appropriate thing to do to another person.”
Twitter was experiencing an outage which affected the video, but the site seems to be functioning now…
