  • Jill Harth once filed a civil lawsuit against Trump which alleged, among other things, that Trump had sexually assaulted her on occasions in 1992 and 1993. “In a lawsuit described by the Boston Globe in April, Jill Harth alleged that Trump repeatedly harassed her over several years starting in 1992, when she and her boyfriend operated a Florida company that ran a beauty contest and other shows that Trump wanted to be held at his Atlantic City casino. In one 1992 incident, Harth alleged, Trump put his hand up her skirt to her crotch under a table while dining with her and her boyfriend. In 1993, she alleged that while giving her a tour of Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla., he pushed her against a wall of the room being used as daughter Ivanka's bedroom and began kissing her.” (Washington Post, October 18, 2016)
  • Harth later settled a legal dispute with Donald Trump related to a business deal and briefly dated Trump in 1998. “Harth and her boyfriend's business relationship ended in a dispute that caused them to file a lawsuit against Trump; according to the Globe, Harth filed another suit against Trump on her own. The litigation was settled in 1997, and Harth later dated Trump for several months in 1998. She also sent an email to the Trump campaign last year declaring herself ‘definitely Team Trump’ and met with Trump at a campaign event in January. She told the Times she was trying to get work.” (Washington Post, October 18, 2016)
  • Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations raised by Harth in her lawsuit. “Trump has denied Harth's allegations repeatedly over the years, and Hicks, the campaign spokeswoman, told the Times recently that ‘Mr. Trump denies each and every statement made by Ms. Harth.’” (Washington Post, October 18, 2016)
