Trump’s Lawyers Again Arguing Against Taking Seriously What He Said as a Candidate, This Time About Sexual Harassment

First it was that anti-Muslim statements were irrelevant to the travel ban.

Now, it is that Trump statements about Trump sexual harassment accusers cannot be defamatory because they were made in a campaign:

During the campaign, Trump said the women who accused against him of inappropriately touching them were putting forward “made-up stories and lies” and “telling totally false stories.” Kasowitz argued those statements and others could not be considered defamatory but instead were “nothing more than heated campaign rhetoric designed to persuade the public audience that Mr. Trump should be elected president irrespective of what the media and his opponents had claimed over his 18-month campaign.”
