Trump campaign staffer accuses president of attempting to kiss her in lawsuit

Former campaign staffer accuses Trump of kissing her without consent before 2016 rally

She claims he forced the kiss before a campaign rally in Tampa in August of 2016.

Alva Johnson says that she quickly turned her head so that the kiss mostly missed her mouth.

As Trump was exiting to give a speech, she says she told him, "I've been on the road for you since March, away from my family", as outlined in the lawsuit.

The White House is denying Johnson's claim while calling her story "absurd on its face".

"This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts", Sanders wrote in the statement.

Two senior officials of Trump campaign who were present at the time of the alleged incident have denied seeing the alleged kiss.

The woman filed the lawsuit in Florida on Monday, seeking damages for emotional pain and suffering.

A woman who worked for Donald Trump " s 2016 presidential campaign has sued the president over claims he "violated' her by kissing her on the lips without permission. The politician was even caught on tape describing this kind of behavior during a taping of Access Hollywood.

Both told the Washington Post, which first reported the lawsuit, that they saw nothing inappropriate.

Trump had held "grasped her hand and did not let go" as he spoke to her telling her he will take care of her for her hard work fr the campaign. and "leaned towards her".

Johnson, a mother of four, said the unwanted kiss happened after she had brought Trump's campaign volunteer into the RV he was in to take photos with him. Kayleigh McEnany, Trump's newest campaign spokeswoman, called Johnson's allegation "off-base and unfounded".

"She felt confused and humiliated", the lawsuit said. "I can still see his lips coming straight for my face", she told the Washington Post. "However, she was intrigued by the possibility of working on the campaign of a relatively unknown political outsider like Defendant Trump", the lawsuit states.

"Unlike so numerous other victims, she's the only one with the ability to sue him directly for his sexual misconduct". In detailing the interaction to the Post, Johnson claimed she thought: "Oh, my God, I think he's going to kiss me".

This latest accusation against Trump is one of many.

Johnson, who registered as a Democrat in California several years ago, said she voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, but thought Trump might be able to use business experience to help struggling black communities.

Johnson said she began to consider coming forward in October 2016, after video surfaced of Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without their consent.

In June, she hired Zavareei, her attorney in her suit against Trump, the Post reports. Bondi told the newspaper that she did not recall it.
