A former Trump campaign aide who claimed she was forcibly kissed by Donald Trump during his presidential bid has dropped her lawsuit over the episode.
Alva Johnson is also dropping another part of her suit that alleged the Trump campaign underpaid women and minority employees.
Johnsons suit grabbed headlines over her assertion that Trump abruptly kissed her as he was getting ready to make a public appearance at a campaign rally in Tampa, Fla., in August 2016.
However, the outlook for the legal challenge dimmed in July when lawyers for Trump filed with the court and released publicly a video of the encounter.
Trumps attorneys said the 15-second video, captured on cellphone by another man in the recreational vehicle in which Trump was talking with aides and supporters, showed an unremarkable, brief and friendly greeting that hardly resembled the battery Johnson alleged in her suit.
Trumps lawyers also said the video showed Johnson kissing Trump, rather than the other way around.
Following the emergence of the video, U.S. District Court William Jung suggested he might impose sanctions on Johnsons attorneys if they proceeded with the aspect of the suit relating to the kiss.

They lied about Trump. CNN and NBC are scrambling to not report this.
Bet her attorney wasn't too happy with the video.
It doesn’t get much better than this———she should be ashamed of herself-—but that will never happen.
Ha haaaaa!!! Finally! In the sixth sentence they get to the nub.
You gotta know the Fake Newsies at Pollutico were wracking their teeny, tiny little brains trying to figure out how they could write this story without including that little nugget.
They think that’s bad.
He tried to forcibly kiss me once in Manhattan.
I told him he had to buy me drinks first :)
How conveeeeenient that the story drops on a Friday afternoon/evening.
Hopefully Rush and Sean and the rest of our side of the media will not have forgotten this story come Monday morning. But I won't hold my breath.
Someone please post this on DUmmies.
I would except I have already had 2 posts removed.
Gee yet another woman lying about an encounter with a powerful man. And trying to use the legal system as a weapon to attack him.
Countersue the b1tch out of existence. It needs to start happening to finally get it through that this lying that has no negative consequences for the liar, is over. And it would also be nice to see the court get tough on it so as to not be idiotically played by liars and used as fools to ruin innocent peoples lives.
There has to be a penalty for this frivolousness.
I see it as the Cloward-Piven approach to campaigning — overload the system with false accusations, tying up lawyers for the other side that would otherwise be available for protecting their candidate from other challenges, such as the numerous Democrat congressional attacks. Much like a filibuster.
In the future you can be the alphabet networks will use this case in a spin campaign saying, for example “....Trump has been sued for harassment xx times since taking office...” — of course without mentioning the dropping of this suit because it was exposed as fraud.
See, see! Them racist Trump tweets again! IMPEACH!
Like the one who waited until just before Election Day 2016 to come out claiming Trump raped her when she was 13. Only to have her case not only laughed out of court but declared frivolous. Now she’s in a nasty trick bag possibly facing 10’s of thousands in legal fees. But that’s what can happen when you have a shyster like Gloria Allred as your mouthpiece. Become your own lawyer and you’ll have a fool for a client. Hire a shyster like Allred and you’ll have a DAMN fool for a client.
Trump should sue her ass for legal fees
It's what they did to Sarah Palin after McCain lost the election and she returned to Alaska to governcreeps stalked her, someone set fire to her church, and the tolerant left hammered her with petty lawsuits. Then when she resigned rather than deny the state its full access to her as Governor, they shamed her and called her a quitter.
I’m guessing you’re a woman :)
My comment was in jest as I am quite male and quite heterosexual.
I’m on here so much I figured everyone knew who I was :)
But yeah, he was a good looking dude in this picture.
So was I only 20 years ago!! :(
Time waits for no man!
