A defamation lawsuit filed against U.S. President Donald Trump by a contestant on his former reality show "The Apprentice" who accused him of sexual harassment can proceed, a NY state judge ruled on Tuesday, raising the possibility of Trump being forced to answer questions about his behavior toward women.
Mr Trump has been accused by several women of misconduct, including after the release during the 2016 presidential campaign of an Access Hollywood recording in which he had spoken in vulgar terms about trying to have sex with women.
President Donald Trump will hire an attorney to join his personal legal team who has alleged the President is being framed by a group of Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

Kasowitz cited Clinton v. Jones, a 1997 U.S. Supreme Court opinion, which determined that presidents aren't immune from civil actions in federal court but had a footnote where Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that it was "not necessary to consider or decide whether a comparable claim might succeed in a state tribunal".
As Trump was under fire for his comments, Zervos came forward to accuse him of kissing her twice in 2007 and attacking her in a hotel room.
Trump's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, has argued that Trump's comments were just political rhetoric, and said he will appeal the decision.
