In a startling admission by one of President Donald Trump’s lawyers, attorney Marc Kasowitz noted in a legal filing that then-candidate Trump’s Twitter statements denying allegations of sexual assault were aimed at attracting voters and should not being considered in a civil suit filed against the sitting president.

According to LawNewz, Kasowitz claims the sexual assault allegations made by former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos — which date back to 2007 — are false and were politically motivated.

In the motion to dismiss or delay Zervos lawsuit, submitted late Friday night, Trump’s attorney attempted to explain how Trump’s tweets were not intended to offend her.

According to the Supreme Court of New York filing, “The Statements — all of which were advanced during a heated political campaign to convince the public to vote for Mr. Trump, and many of which were published via Twitter –constitute non-actionable rhetoric and hyperbole that is protected by the First Amendment.”

Trump’s attorney is attempting to have the the case thrown out or, best case for the sitting president, delayed until after he is out of office.

Raw Story attempted to contact Kasowitz for clarification on why the president’s comments were “non-actionable rhetoric” but were unable to reach him.

Formerly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz shifted into damage control Saturday on Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to win his way back into the dark heart of Donald Trump, at least for the moment.

Dershowitz had been a bad boy earlier this week when he told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that “if you’re betting money you can’t afford to lose, you have to bet that the outcome of the election will not be reversed.” That couldn’t have pleased the home offices at Mar-A-Lago and Moscow.
