Today I filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump for defamation. On November 11th, 2016, I called on Mr. Trump to retract his statements about me, calling me a liar. I also called upon him to state that what I said about his behavior towards me was true. More than two months have gone by, and he has not issued that retraction.
I wanted to give Mr. Trump the opportunity to retract his false statements about me, and the other women who came forward. Since Mr. Trump has not issued a retraction as I requested, he has therefore left me with no alternative other than to sue him in order to vindicate my reputation.
I want Mr. Trump to know that I will still be willing to dismiss my case against him immediately for no monetary compensation if he would simply retract his false and defamatory statements about me, and acknowledge that I told the truth about him.
