Trump Camp Ordered to Give Up Sexual Misconduct Docs

Trump has denied the accusation, but Zervos's lawsuit is still ongoing, and now it appears that her legal team has subpoenaed some documents that could prove illuminating about the issue of Trump and those who have alleged sexual misconduct.

The Trump campaign was subpoenaed in March by former "Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos, who accused Trump of aggressively kissing and grabbing her when she met with him to discuss a possible job at the Trump Organization after her run on his hit television show.

A woman who once competed on The Apprentice has subpoenaed the Trump campaign for all documents regarding "any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately", BuzzFeed News has reported.

Sheeran is due to perform in Taipei on Sunday at the start of a massive Asia tour taking in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and India.

The subpoena is part of a defamation lawsuit Zervos filed against Trump after he called her allegations "lies, lies, lies", NBC News reports. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I've conducted my life.

Trump responded to the allegations again during a 40-minute press conference with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday afternoon, calling Zervos's claims "disgraceful".

The subpoena, issued in March, is part of Zervos' defamation lawsuit against Trump in NY state. As part of that suit, her lawyers served a subpoena on his campaign, asking that it preserve all documents it had about her. At one point during filming, she reached out to his office in 2007 to set up a lunch with him, which Trump offered to host at his office, according to her.

"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". Trump's lawyers have tried to bat away the charges, insisting that the president is protected from civil lawsuits in state court while he's in office. Trump's lawyers have claimed the subpoena is "far-reaching" and that the suit is politically motivated.

During Trump's election campaign, several women accused him of sexual harassment, with some of the cases going back decades.

The campaign did not return The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment in time for publication. They also said the subpoena was too broad, and demanded "irrelevant information intended exclusively to harass the President".
