Former Campaign Staffer Sues Trump For Allegedly Kissing Her Without Consent: ‘Super Creepy’
Former Trump campaign staffer Alva Johnson has filed a lawsuit against the president for allegedly kissing her against her will in August 2016.
Johnson told the Washington Post that Trump grabbed her hand, pulled her toward him, and kissed her on the lips as she walked out of an RV during a campaign rally in Florida.
Johnson described the kiss as “super-creepy and inappropriate”:
I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it. I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.
Johnson’s boyfriend, her mother, and her stepfather confirmed that she told them about the alleged incident shortly after it occurred.
The White House offered a generic denial, calling the story “absurd on its face.”
Two Trump supporters that Johnson identified as witnesses — a campaign official and Pam Bondi, then the Florida attorney general — denied seeing the alleged kiss in interviews with the Washington Post.
More than a dozen other women have publicly accused Trump of sexual abuse.
