A complaint filed by a former campaign staff member who accused Donald Trump of having forcibly kissed him was filed Friday by a federal judge.
According to Politico, Judge William Jung of the US District Court
dismissed Alva Johnson's complaint, claiming in his 15-page order that "the complaint is a political trial, not a tort and a pay trial".
Jung added, "If the plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or make a claim for political purposes, it is not the forum."

Johnson was director of outreach and coalitions for the Alabama GOP Group's primary in 2016, then did similar work in Florida.
The former employee told MSNBC in February that "in August 2016, she had briefly chatted with Trump in a motorhome during a Florida campaign stage. Before getting off the bus to talk to the trainees in the campaign, she told him to "smash her mouth" and said she had not seen her family for a very long time. Johnson said Trump was holding his hand and was getting closer.
"I knew it was inappropriate because I worked in human resources. So I knew that it was completely inappropriate, "Johnson told MSNBC host Chris Hayes. "It was rude and scary. As if I could still see those lips. "
"This accusation is absurd at first sight. This has never happened and is directly contradicted by many highly credible eyewitness accounts, "said Sarah Sanders, White House press secretary, in February.

The judge also said he criticized the complaint for including "immaterial and impertinent" allegations against Trump.
"Although this simple pile seems to have lasted perhaps 10 to 15 seconds, the plaintiff spent 29 pages and 115 paragraphs in the complaint. Many of these allegations describe 19 unrelated incidents involving women on whom the accused Trump allegedly committed non-consensual acts over the past four decades under different circumstances, "Jung wrote in his order.
Jung said that he would allow Johnson to file a cropped complaint within the next 30 days.
