Kirsters Baish’s Opinion| Recall back to February of this year when 43-year-old Alva Johnson, a former staffer for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, claimed that Trump had kissed her without her consent during a gathering prior to a Florida rally. She claimed that the alleged incident left her in anguish, causing her daily trauma.
Johnson was looking for cash.
Johnson made an appearance on MSNBC in February, crying her eyes out while she spoke about the alleged encounter with the President.
“MSNBC’s Chris Hayes spoke to Alva Johnson Tuesday evening and she broke down in tears as she recounted how she felt after the Billy Bush tape was released,” the Gateway Pundit explains.
Johnson stated, “So when I heard the audio (Billy Bush tape) I was screaming in my car, I’m like ‘oh my God that exactly what he did to me.’”
“I never went back to work…I was afraid,” Johnson continued.
"I never went back to work…I was afraid."

Johnson’s case was tossed out by Judge William Jung on Friday.
Fox News reported:
A lawsuit filed by a former campaign staffer who accused Donald Trump of forcibly kissing her was dismissed by a federal judge on Friday.
According to Politico, U.S. District Court Judge William Jung tossed out Alva Johnson’s complaint, saying in his 15-page order that “the complaint presents a political lawsuit, not a tort and wages lawsuit.”
Jung added, “If plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or bring a claim for political purposes, this is not the forum.”

Johnson was director of outreach and coalitions for the Alabama GOP primary in 2016 and later did similar work in Florida.
Johnson’s attorney made a statement to the Hill, in which he said that Jung’s ruling “would force Johnson to fight in court with her hands ‘tied behind [her] back,'” according to the Hill.
“While we are pleased that the Judge said that Ms. Johnson ‘will receive a fair day in Court,’ today was not such a day. This erroneous ruling forces us to fight this lawsuit against the most powerful sex predator in the world with our hands tied behind our back,” attorney Hassan Zavareei stated, continuing, “But that does not deter us. We are used to fighting tough fights and will continue to do so here.”
