Trump claims he's immune from lawsuit over inciting violence at rallies
18 April, 2017, 02:56
A Donald Trump supporter who allegedly assaulted young woman during a campaign rally a year ago is claiming the president is to blame in his response to a lawsuit against him.
"If Bamberger is adjudged liable to Nwanguma for his actions, Trump and/or the Trump campaign should be adjudged liable to Bamberger in an equal sum, because Trump and/or the Trump campaign urged and inspired Bamberger to act as he did", read the lawsuit. "Bamberger would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or the Trump Campaign's specific urging and inspiration". WDRB-TV reported that 75-year-old Alvin Bamberger said he was only following Trump's directions when he helped remove her.

"I'd like to punch him in the face", Trump once said of a protester at a rally in Las Vegas, for example. During the altercation, Trump shouted at them to "get out" and "get 'em out of here!" However, they say Trump was instructing his security team, not the crowd.
They gave 15 defenses of the president, among them, the president "is immune from suit because he is president of the United States"; that the protesters waived their claims by getting tickets to the rally; and that the protesters "suffered no actual injury" while also being "responsible for their own injuries".

According to the report, Bamberger's lawyers also argued that their client "admits only that he touched a woman", and not "that he assaulted that woman".
Attorneys for Kashiya Nwanguma, Molly Shah and Henry Brousseau have said they were peacefully protesting at the Kentucky International Convention Center when Trump stopped his speech and told his supporters to "get 'em out of here".
Bamberger, Heimbach and a third man, Joseph Pryor, were charged last summer with misdemeanor harassment by Louisville police.
In that response, attorneys for Trump asked that the lawsuit be dismissed and the president be awarded costs, expenses and attorney's fees. The lawsuit alleges Nwanguma was called racist and sexist slurs and repeatedly assaulted.
Criminal summonses have been issued for Heimbach, Bamberger and IN resident Joseph Pryor.
