Watch: Video Finally Comes Out of Trump 'Forcibly Kissing' Woman ... She's Been Lying the Whole Time

Path 27

A newly released phone video may shed light on Alva Johnson’s pending lawsuit claiming President Donald Trump “forcibly” kissed her during a 2016 campaign stop.

Johnson, who at the time worked for Trump as a campaign staffer, filed suit on Feb 25, 2019 against Trump for battery and discrimination based on her race and gender.

In a bombshell disclosure, however, President Trump’s lawyers just released a 15-second video they claim proves Johnson is lying about her encounter with President Trump.

“The Video shows that Plaintiff’s allegations in the Complaint that Mr. Trump “forcibly” kissed her, and kissed her “on the mouth,” are entirely false,” Trump’s lawyer, Charles J. Harder, wrote in a Motion for Protective Order he filed on behalf of the president. “In watching the Video, the only conclusion a reasonable person could reach is that the exchange was an innocent moment between a dedicated campaign staffer and the candidate for whom she was working—who was appreciative that she had just spent eight months away from her family on the campaign trail for his campaign. Then, after this very brief exchange, in which she appears to kiss him (or the air next to his face), she smiles, and then says ‘We’re going to get you in the White House and I’ll see you in February,’ meaning right after the Inauguration, which is held on January 20 after every Presidential election.”

“If Plaintiff had been attacked, as she alleges, one would expect a far different response than telling him she’ll help him get elected President of the United States,” the motion continues. “That is the response of a person who is moved in a positive way by her candidate’s show of appreciation and recognition of her dedicated service to his campaign. Moreover, the fact that the two are surrounded by campaign workers, supporters, members of law enforcement and the state’s then- Attorney General, in a small space, further suggests that an attack like the one Plaintiff alleges in her Complaint is all the more impossible.”

“The Video proves that Plaintiff has no legitimate claim for battery. It also proves that Plaintiff and her counsel have lied repeatedly to this Court,” Harder concluded.

The video appears to run counter to Johnson’s initial claims that Trump “grasped her hands and did not let go.” Johnson’s recounting of the encounter is that she “suddenly realized that Defendant Trump was trying to kiss her on the mouth and attempted to avoid this by turning her head to the right. Defendant Trump kissed her anyway and the kiss landed on the corner of the mouth.”

According to The Daily Caller, the video was recorded by another campaign volunteer.

Do you think Johnson is mischaracterizing the incident?

The video also reveals the level of media bias that occurred in the reporting on the story. CNN’s reporting the day of Johnson’s suit hid the fact that other witnesses denied Johnson’s version of the story.

In fact, CNN took a full 12 paragraphs before they even mentioned that Johnson’s story was disputed.

According to The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross, Johnson “confirmed during a deposition Monday that the incident on video is the one she described in her lawsuit.”
