Lawyers for President Trump have forcefully denied the allegations of sexual assault by former model Amy Dorris.
In a statement to The Guardian, Trump legal adviser Jenna Ellis said “The allegations are totally false. We will consider every legal means available to hold The Guardian accountable for its malicious publication of this unsubstantiated story. This is just another pathetic attempt to attack President Trump right before the election.”
At the end of the Guardian’s video interviewing Amy Dorris is the following statement:
Donald Trump’s lawyers denied in the strongest possible terms that he had ever harassed, abused or behaved improperly towards Amy Dorris.
They said her then boyfriend, Jason Binn, told them he had no recollection of Dorris telling him that anything inappropriate had happened with Trump or that she felt uncomfortable around him.
The president’s lawyers added that Amy Dorris’ account did not stand up to scrutiny and, had there been any inappropriate behaviour by Trump outside of the bathroom within his VIP box, there would have been numerous witnesses.
They said the timing of the claims so close to the November presidential election suggested they may be politically motivated.
Speaking to the Guardian, Dorris accused Trump of pushing his tongue down her throat and gripping her tightly so she could not move after she was exiting the bathroom at the 1997 U.S. Open Tennis Tournament.
She said “I don’t know what you call that when you’re sticking your tongue just down someone’s throat. But I pushed it out with my teeth. I was pushing it. And I think I might have hurt his tongue.”
Dorris added “He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off. And then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything. I was in his grip, and I couldn’t get out of it.”
