Despite trying to turn her head and avoid the interaction, Johnson said Trump managed to kiss her on the side of her mouth.
While leaving a meeting in the vehicle, Trump gripped Johnson by the hand and leaned in so close that she felt his breath, the lawsuit says. 'I can still see his lips coming straight for my face'.
"This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eyewitness accounts", she wrote in a statement.
Bondi, whom Johnson said was a witness, said the opposite.
President Donald Trump speaks during the 2019 White House business session with governors in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, D.C. on February 25, 2019. She also called the interaction "super-creepy" and "inappropriate". Johnson, however, is the first Black woman to come forward.
The lawsuit, first reported by The Washington Post, seeks unspecified money damages and an order preventing the president from "grabbing, kissing or otherwise assaulting or harassing women without prior express consent".
When Johnson walked up introduced herself to Trump, he allegedly, "looked her up and down and said, 'Oh, beautiful, beautiful, fantastic'".
Iran's foreign minister in surprise resignation
Since the United States made a decision to pull out of the deal, Zarif has been a large critic of the Trump presidency. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif speaks to the media in Tbilisi, Georgia, April 18, 2017.
"As a career prosecutor and Attorney General, had I seen anything improper I would have taken action", Bondi said. The 2005 video shows Trump telling Access Hollywood that "when you're a star, they let you do it". Trump faces a defamation lawsuit in NY brought by Summer Zervos, a former "Apprentice" reality TV contestant, who claims he forcibly kissed and groped her in 2007.
Johnson has worked on campaigns for the U.S. Senate, as well as a county commissioner.
Johnson would be at least the twenty-third woman to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.
Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany told The Post Johnson's claim is "off-base and unfounded".
She has expertise in the areas of "voter engagement, grassroots coordination, coalition and alliance building, communications, events, messaging and strategy, campaign technology (digital and data), database and file management, and polling research", according to her website. "After the lawyer decided it was basically too big a case for them and they weren't going to take it on, she chose to try to move on with her life", Zavareei said.
Johnson's mother spoke with the Post and remembers her as being "hysterical" later the same day as the alleged kiss, when the two discussed it.
At the time, Trump said: "Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am".
