Current President In Big Trouble - And It's All Because Of Bill Clinton

President Donald Trump may have more legal troubles on his plate than whatever Special Counsel Robert Mueller may uncover as part of his investigation. A former contestant on ‘The Apprentice’ that has previously made sexual harassment allegations against the commander-in-chief isn’t letting it go.

As the New York Daily News shares, her attorneys have filed a brief that seeks to have Trump be forced to respond to the suit.

Summer Zervos appeared on the fifth season of “The Apprentice,” and she filed suit against Trump right before Inauguration Day. Her legal team includes three lawyers that helped to clear the path for the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.

“She alleged he smeared her as a liar while on the campaign trail after she went public with allegations he 'kissed her on the mouth repeatedly' without consent, 'touched her breast' and 'pressed his genitals up against her' during meetings in Beverly Hills in 2007,” the News reports.

The brief essentially points out that the president is not above the law, and the lawyers have cited the landmark Supreme Court case, Clinton v. Jones, for reference. That case would eventually expose Clinton’s relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and the scandal nearly cost him his presidency.

“No one in our nation is above the law, not even the President,” they wrote in the new brief. “There is simply no evidence that permitting plaintiffs to file civil suits against sitting Presidents brings on floods of burdensome litigation.”

Trump attorney Marc Kasowitz has offered up a response that sheds a differing light on things.

“No one is arguing that the President is ‘above the law.’ Rather, as numerous other law professors have argued, and as the United States Supreme Court itself has recognized, the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution bars the states from hearing cases against a President — but only while the President is in office. "

"Any other result would lead to unworkable and intolerable interference with the President's ability to carry out his critical duties under the Constitution.”

A number of allegations materialized against Trump during the presidential campaign, but none of them seemed to go anywhere. Trump denied all of them, and the fact that many of the accusers appeared at press conferences with Hillary Clinton advocate Gloria Allred led to questions about their motivations for coming forward at that particular point in time.

If there’s anything to any of the allegations, then Trump should, of course, have to answer for them. Although it may seem otherwise at times, no one is above the law. The slippery slope comes into play when you consider the fact that each case that POTUS answers to can open up even larger cans of worms.

As we all know, there are plenty of frivolous lawsuits filed every day in the country, and having the president waste his time in court unnecessarily is not an appealing or prudent option. That said, a serious implication of criminal activity would supersede the inconvenience of that, but that would have to be pretty clear beforehand.
