Alva Johnson, a former campaign staffer when Donald Trump was running for president in 2016, filed a lawsuit against President Trump on February 25th, as she claimed that she was the victim of an unwanted and forcible kiss from Trump before a rally in Tampa.  She sued the President for battery and discrimination based on her race and gender.

The Business Insider reported that…

“Johnson says Trump ‘moved close enough that she could feel his breath on her skin’ when she ‘suddenly realized … Trump was trying to kiss her on the mouth.'”

They stated that according to previous court filings…

 “Johnson said that she ‘attempted to avoid this by turning her head to the right’ and that ‘Trump kissed her anyways … on the corner of her mouth.'”

However, in the newly released video, that was reportedly taken by another campaign staffer, it sheds an all-new and different picture than the one that Johnson has been claiming, as she said that President Donald Trump “forcibly” kissed her during a 2016 campaign stop.

Now, in what has become a bombshell disclosure, and one that blows up her entire narrative, President Trump’s lawyers just released a 15-second video they claim proves Johnson is lying about her encounter with President Trump.

In fact, President Trump’s attorney, Charles J. Harder, wrote in a Motion for Protective Order he filed on behalf of the president. In that video, it shows that the…

“Plaintiff’s allegations in the Complaint that Mr. Trump “forcibly” kissed her, and kissed her “on the mouth,” are entirely false.”

In fact, his attorney wrote…

“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. 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.”

The Gateway Pundit even noted that…

Lawyers for Trump also released these videos — one slowed down so you can see that it appears Trump doesn’t even make contact with his lips.

Ultimately, the video appears to discredit 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.”

However, not only does the video reveal the illegitimacy of Johnson’s claims, but it shows the irresponsible journalistic standards, and blatant media bias, as networks like CNN’s reports on the lawsuit, hid the fact that other witnesses denied Johnson’s version of the story, as they buried that information a full 12 paragraphs down in the article, before they even mentioned that Johnson’s story was so much as even disputed.
