MOSCOW (Sputnik) — They subpoenaed his campaign for all documents related to the claims, local media reported Monday.
In October 2016, Apprentice TV show contestant Summer Zervos claimed at a press conference that Trump forcibly kissed and inappropriately touched her during a visit to his New York office in 2007. Trump refuted all the allegations. In January 2017, Zervos filed a lawsuit against Trump in the New York State Supreme Court.
According to the CNN broadcaster, Zervos' lawyers requested all the documents related to her, as well as all communications with her and about her, and "all documents concerning any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately." The broadcaster noted that the subpoena was issued in March, but it has been revealed recently.
