Sex assault accuser Summer Zervos sues ‘liar and misogynist’ Donald Trump for defamation

Published

on

Former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump on Tuesday, attorney Gloria Allred announced in Los Angeles.

“No one is above the law, including the soon-to-be president,” Allred said during a press conference.

Zervos in October accused Trump of groping and kissing her without her permission during a 2007 business meeting. She said Trump thrust his genitals at her and became angry when she refused to have sex with him.

The lawsuit calls Trump a “liar and misogynist” for disparaging Zervos after she made the allegations.

The lawsuit claims Trump lied about Zervos by claiming he never met her at a hotel or groped her inappropriately, Allred said. The lawsuit also notes that Trump claimed Zervos’s allegations were “made up.”

More than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual assault. Allred said that Trump “maliciously threw each of these women under the bus,” including Zervos.

Allred said that Zervos had taken and passed a lie detector test regarding the alleged 2007 sexual assault.

Zervos said during the Tuesday press conference that she would drop her defamation lawsuit if Trump “acknowledged the truth I told about him.”

Allred and Zervos had threatened to file a lawsuit against Trump in November.

“I want to make it clear that even though it is hard and painful to speak up against the world’s most powerful man, I will continue to speak the truth and I refuse to be intimidated into silence,” Zervos said at the time.

Republicans’ laughable effort to attack Adam Schiff lands with a thud

Published

on

Republicans' effort to castigate California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee spearheading the impeachment inquiry, met a quick and sudden defeat on Monday in a vote of 218-185.

Spurred on by President Donald Trump's attacks on the chairman, GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy led an effort to censure Schiff on the House floor. On what grounds? It's almost too absurd to make up: lying.

The party of Donald Trump — who lied more times in the hours before the censure vote than Schiff even stands accused of — actually claimed that it's the California lawmaker who should be called out for dishonesty.

Lindsey Graham leaves open the possibility of voting to impeach President Donald Trump

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., left open the possibility that he would vote to impeach President Donald Trump if he saw evidence that the commander-in-chief had engaged in a quid pro quo during an interview with "Axios on HBO" broadcast Sunday night.

After telling Axios’ Jonathan Swan that he would need to see evidence of an actual “crime,” Graham added that “if you could show me that, you know, Trump actually was engaging in a quid pro quo outside the phone call, that would be very disturbing."

Connecticut town’s KKK history recalled ahead of controversial upcoming GOP event

Published

on

The town of Shelton, Connecticut was brutally whacked for its history of racism ahead of a Connecticut Republican Party event.

"Fun fact. In the 1980s, the Imperial Wizard (the national leader) of the Ku Klux Klan lived in Connecticut," columnist Colin McEnroe noted in The Middletown Press.

The host of WNPR's "The Colin McEnroe Show" explained how James Farrands ran the KKK out of his garage in Shelton.

"This may be an unfair memory to bring up, right when Shelton is having another bad run. In recent weeks, the school system there had to deal with a Snapchat pic of a student in blackface lifting both middle fingers and using a common distasteful racial epithet," McEnroe explained.
