Former Vice President Tana Mooreau is suing President Donald Trump for sexual harassment and assault, alleging he sexually assaulted her when she was a senior staffer at the White House.
The lawsuit filed Monday says Mooreau was in the Oval Office on Dec. 16, 2001, when Trump allegedly forced himself on her.
Mooreau says she was “very, very drunk” and didn’t know the president was in her office.
Mooreauer says she told him to stop, but Trump said, “Let’s go get some drinks.”
“He then took me by the arm, pulled me towards him and said, ‘Just hold on for a minute,’ ” Mooreau said in a statement.
She says she had to call the Secret Service because she couldn’t breathe.
“They had me hold on and he started kissing me,” Mooreau wrote.
“He grabbed my arm, grabbed my breast, pulled down my pants and began rubbing his penis against my vagina.”
Mooreau said Trump then tried to rape her.
“I could feel his penis inside me,” she said.
“He pulled me back and began kissing me again,” Mooreauer said.
Moore said Trump pulled her pants down and pushed his penis into her vagina.
“I could not breathe, and he told me to pull away from him,” she wrote.
Mooreau filed the lawsuit in Washington, D.C., the same day she was fired by the Trump administration, and her attorney said the president has not been charged with any crimes.
Mooreauer says the incident happened after she told a friend about a sexual relationship with Trump, who was then a private citizen, in 2001.
Moore went to the White of Holmby Hills in Los Angeles, where she said she had a friend, and she told her friend about the alleged incident.
The White House said in the statement Monday that Trump is “unavailable for comment.”
“The President appreciates the efforts of our law enforcement officials to conduct a thorough and thorough investigation of these allegations, which have been thoroughly investigated,” the White Senate said in its statement.
“The President has full confidence in the integrity of our Secret Service agents and their actions.”
The Trump administration’s initial statement, released Tuesday, said Mooreau had told the Secret Force “about the alleged assault” but did not give specifics.
“The Vice President also stated that she was very drunk at the time, and was unaware that she had made a false statement to the Secret Services about the sexual assault.
The Vice President further stated that after she left the Oval office, she called her friend, who reported the incident to the police,” the statement read.”
After she contacted the police, the Vice President told her that she should have told the police sooner.
The President has not personally been contacted by the police about this matter.”
The White Senate did not provide further comment.
A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that the Secret Forces is investigating Mooreauer’s claim, and it will decide whether to launch a criminal investigation.
Moore’s attorney, James L. McQuade, said Monday in a conference call with reporters that he has not heard back from the Secret Security agency and did not know whether the agency is investigating the case.
“We haven’t heard from them, and we don’t have any reason to believe that they are doing anything,” McQuADE said.
Moore was also a co-host on the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, the same night she spoke out against the Trump presidency.
Williams and Moore were in the middle of their 10-year tenure at the network.
Williams said Moore was fired from the network in 2014 after she accused the president of grabbing her breast while she was in a bikini at Mar-a-Lago.
Williams told reporters at the top of the show on Oct. 25, 2018, that he thought Moore’s accusations were credible.
“There’s no way that you could not make up what you want, and you just have to be very careful and very specific about what you say,” Williams said.
