While the sexual assault allegations and the repercussions for Harvey Weinstein still dominate the news, the case against President Donald Trump saw new developments as well. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice, filed a subpoena for "all documents concerning any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately." It names Trump's campaign organization and any applicable "directors, officers, partners, shareholders, managers, attorneys, employees, agents and representatives" as subjects.
In October 2016, Zervos alleged Donald Trump, without her consent, tried to kiss and touch her inappropriately at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2007. Her allegations came after the release of an Access Hollywood tape from 2005 where Trump states he often grabs attractive women and kisses them without asking first. He followed by stating, “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p----. You can do anything.”
