Ex-model Amy Dorris alleges Trump sexually assaulted her in 1997 at U.S. Open tennis tournament

WASHINGTON — Former model Amy Dorris alleged in a new interview that President Donald Trump sexually assaulted her at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York in 1997 by forcing his tongue down her throat and groping her body. And then that's when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything," Dorris said in an interview published Thursday in The Guardian newspaper. Dorris said that the incident occurred outside the bathroom in Trump's VIP box at the open on Sept. Trump's lawyers noted that Dorris didn't report it to police at the time and suggested the timing of her coming forward now, less than two months before the election, could be politically motivated, The Guardian said. The paper said it corroborated the alleged assault with Dorris' mother and a friend, both of whom she immediately called after the incident, and with other friends and her therapist.

However, Trump's lawyers said Binn told them that he had no recollection of Dorris telling him that anything inappropriate had happened with Trump or that she felt uncomfortable around him, the paper reported. She spent time with Trump on at least two occasions after the alleged assault, The Guardian said. Dorris said she thought about coming forward in 2016 when other women were accusing Trump of similar behavior, but she ultimately decided against it because she thought it would harm her family, the report said.

Ms Dorris, who is now 48 and a mum to twin daughters, said she had considered speaking publicly about the incident in 2016, when several women made public similar accusations against Mr Trump when he was running for president. His lawyers also said it seemed 'incredible' that Ms Dorris would voluntarily choose to be in the vicinity of Mr Trump, at the US Open and the Versace memorial, in the days following the alleged assault. They added Ms Dorris had never raised the allegations with a law enforcement agency or to Mr Trump, and said the timing of the claims so close to the November presidential election 'suggested they might be politically motivated'.
