Donald Trump is accused of grabbing a married woman by her genitals at a New Year’s Eve Party at his club Mar-a-Lago in the early 2000s, while then-girlfriend Melania was upstairs.
Karen Johnson claims she was groped by the future president during the party at Trump’s club in Palm Beach, Florida, which she says she attended with her terminally-ill husband who was suffering from multiple sclerosis, and a relative.
Johnson said she was in her late thirties when the incident took place but did not make clear which year it occurred.
She would only say it took place between 2000 and when Trump became engaged on April 29, 2004 to Melania, then Melania Knauss. The pair were married on January 22, 2005.
Former dancer Johnson made the accusation to authors Barry Levine and Monique El-Faizy in their upcoming book ‘All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator’, an excerpt of which appeared in Esquire Wednesday.
She told them, ‘When he says that thing, ‘Grab them in the p****,’ that hits me hard because when he grabbed me and pulled me into the tapestry, that’s where he grabbed me.’
Describing the New Year’s Eve party, Johnson said she had been dancing in a black Versace dress when, shortly after the stroke of midnight, her husband, who suffered from multiple sclerosis, said he was feeling unwell and the relative was also ready to go home.
Johnson claimed the incident happened when she made a quick trip to the restroom before going home.
She said, ‘I hadn’t seen [Trump} that whole entire night. I was just walking to the bathroom. I was grabbed and pulled behind a tapestry, and it was him.
‘And I’m a tall girl and I had six-inch heels on, and I still remember looking up at him. And he’s strong, and he just kissed me.
‘I was so scared because of who he was…I don’t even know where it came from. I didn’t have a say in the matter.’
Johnson told the authors Trump then grabbed her hand and asked her to help him say goodbye to guests at the front door because Melania was upstairs.
The book claims to reveal 43 fresh allegations of alleged inappropriate behavior, including 26 instances of unwanted sexual contact.
The accusation made by Johnson is the only one the authors have currently disclosed before the book is published on October 22.
