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.

The report said lawyers would ask a NY state judge to toss the lawsuit, which was filed by Zervos three days before Trump was inaugurated.

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.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to prove that defendant falsely branded Ms. Zervos a phony for telling the truth about his unwanted sexual groping", Wang said in an email.

Former porn star Stormy Daniels said she was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about her relationship with Trump.

In a stinging January interview with The Daily Caller, diGenova accused the top leadership in the Obama Justice Department of "plotting" against Trump.

Zervos made the accusation while Trump was campaigning to become president.

President Trump is also discussing adding other lawyers to the team, according to one person with knowledge of the matter. He called her claims a hoax and fabrication, and she sued for defamation.

Daniels shared her story with InTouch magazine in 2011, but the interview was not published until the Wall Street Journal reported on the affair and payout earlier this year.

Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, a frequent guest on Fox News, has endorsed claims that a secretive group of FBI agents concocted the Russian Federation investigation as a way to keep Trump from becoming president. Attorneys for Trump pushed back on multiple fronts, arguing that the suit was "politically motivated" and was built around "allegations of events that never occurred".
