Woman who accused Trump of attempted rape in Ivanka’s bedroom lashes out: ‘I didn’t lie — you did’

Published

on

A woman who has accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her opened up on Twitter after Trump said the New York Times reports about the allegations were false, LawNewz reports.

Trump was responding to a May article in the Times addressing accusations about his inappropriate or abusive behavior toward women. Aside from Trump’s infamous and well-known insults about women’s appearances, the article lists troubling and frightening encounters — including an account by then-beauty pageant producer Jill Hart.

LawNewz reported that Harth in 1997 filed a $125 million lawsuit against Trump, alleging he groped her under her dress on several occasions, “forcibly” took her to his daughter’s bedroom in an attempt to have sex with her, where he allegedly touched her private parts “in an act constituting attempted ‘rape,'” and repeatedly propositioned her for sex.

“A lot of things get made up over the years,” he told the Times in a response to its reporting. “I have always treated women with great respect. And women will tell you that.”

The Times relied on deposition documents for Harth’s story, as she declined to comment.

Her statements were connected to a now-settled lawsuit against Trump claiming he failed to meet his business obligations. Trump settled while denying wrongdoing. Harth withdrew a lawsuit against Trump over unwanted advances — but stood by her allegations.

She continued to stand by them this week, responding to Trump’s claims on Twitter that the Times story was false.

“My part was true. I didn’t talk. As usual you opened your big mouth,” she tweeted.

Harth’s deposition claims that she and her boyfriend at the time, George Houraney, were working in the 1990s with Trump on a beauty pageant in Atlantic City. In the 1996 documents, obtained by the Times, she describes the initial encounter.

“Donald Trump stared at me throughout that meeting. He stared at me even while George was giving his presentation. … In the middle of it he says to George, ‘Are you sleeping with her?’ Meaning me. And George looked a little shocked and he said, ‘Well, yeah.’ And he goes, ‘Well, for the weekend or what?'”

Though Houraney made it clear he and Harth were a monogamous couple, Trump said “Well, there’s always a first time. I am going after her.”

“I thought the man was joking. I laughed. He said, ‘I am serious,'” Houraney told the Times.

Harth said Trump groped her under the table that night when the couple joined him for dinner.

“Let me just say, this was a very traumatic thing working for him,” she testified.

LawNewz describes perhaps the most troubling encounter.

In the court filing, she also claimed that on January 9, 1993: “Trump forcefully removed (Harth) from public areas of Mar-A-Lago in Florida and forced (her) into a bedroom belonging to defendant’s daughter Ivanka, wherein (Trump) forcibly kissed, fondled, and restrained (her) from leaving, against (her) will and despite her protests.” In the court document, she said that Trump bragged that he”would be the best lover you ever have.”

Trump defended himself by telling the Times it was Harth who pursued him.

Harth blasted Trump’s tweet that said, “No wonder the [New York Times] is failing—who can believe what they write after the false, malicious & libelous story they did on me.”

E. Jean Carroll’s rape allegations against Trump exposed a depressing fact about the American public — according to this conservative

Published

on

This week, former advice columnist E. Jean Carroll published explosive allegations that President Donald Trump had raped her in a department store in the 1990s. In response, the President tweeted that she was "not his type" and that he'd never met her.

As the Democratic debates begin, media commenters wondered why a credible accusation of rape against a sitting President is not enough to permanently sink his chances at re-election, with some blaming the media for moving on too fast.

Writing in the conservative publication The Bulwark, Jonathan V. Last notes that the media did its job. And that it's the US public that lacks the moral compass to ditch the president, despite multiple allegations of sexual assault.

Trump lashes out at US women’s soccer player for refusing to visit the White House

Published

President Donald Trump lashed out at a U.S. women's national soccer team who has publicly criticized him.

Team co-captain Megan Rapinoe, who joined former NFL player Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protest during the National Anthem, strongly denied that she would accept the president's invitation to visit the White House if her squad wins the Women’s World Cup now underway.

“I’m not going to the f*cking White House,” Rapinoe told Eight by Eight Magazine, saying she doubted Trump would risk inviting them. “We’re not gonna be invited. I doubt it.”

Trump has canceled visits by other championship teams, such as this year’s Philadelphia Eagles, after most of the players vowed to decline the invitation.
