A former contestant on the reality show “The Apprentice” filed a defamation lawsuit Tuesday against President-elect Donald Trump over his response to her allegations that he groped her during a job interview in 2007.

Summer Zervos, a California restaurant owner who appeared on the show in 2006, accused Trump of aggressively kissing and grabbing her when she went to his bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel to discuss a possible job at the Trump Organization a year later.

In her suit, Zervos alleges that Trump defamed her when he denied her account of their interactions in the hotel room, accusing her and other women who made similar accusations of lying and fabricating their accounts. Zervos said she would drop her lawsuit, which was filed in New York, without seeking monetary damages if Trump would retract his claim that she lied and acknowledge his actions.

I see a settlement on the horizon here with a no talk clause.

HAHA- for a man who claims to "never settle cases" - he been doing a lot of that as of late.

She should refuse any settlement.

Getting Trump under oath on anything = impeachment guaranteed.

I bet she's got video or something to prove it and this is the end game.

As much as I detest everything Mike Pence stands for and know that it would give the Ryans and McConnells of the world free reign to do as they please, I would at least sleep at night secure knowing an adult was in charge and not in fear of a twitter fueled holocaust.

I thought a president can't be impeached for offenses he did prior to taking office. Also, she's offered to drop for the acknowledgment. I hope it's not about money because I want there to be discovery. I hope she has an ax to grind and refuses a settlement. The settlement should be comrade Trump taking back what he said about her.

I think what he is alluding to is the possibility/likelihood that he would perjure himself.

The lying under oath would be post taking office. If Trump is ever placed under oath after taking office, he will commit perjury. He is incapable of telling the truth.

So this again the same summer who invited trump to have a rally in her restaurant, the same summer who lost it when he said no, the same summer mentioned in the DNC leaked emails to Gloria Alfraud. I'm hoping he does fight this and files a counter suit against her and Gloria Alfraud.

It's the same Trump that said that when you're famous women let you grab them by the *****.

i do to.

You, as a fervent supporter, should pen Trump a letter telling him that its his DUTY to FIGHT this. Go thru discovery and deposition.

I would if i were you.

Let's ask the fundamental question. Can denying a charge of wrongdoing really be used as a claim of defamation?

Regardless of the first part, I can't see how this suit holds water.

Lying under oath during a deposition would be grounds for impeachment.

Honestly, if you can get Trump under oath in any form, he's out.
