Trump Fan Want's Trump To Pay His Lawyer

A Donald Trump supporter who allegedly assaulted a young woman during a campaign rally last year is claiming the president is to blame in his response to a lawsuit against him.

Alvin Bamberger, 75, who is accused of shoving protester Kashiya Nwanguma at a Louisville, Kentucky, rally on March 1, 2016, alleges in a cross claim filed Friday that he would not have touched the woman had then-candidate Trump not urged his supporters to remove protesters from the venue.

"Bamberger had no prior intention to act as he did," reads the response to the suit filed in U.S. District Court for Western Kentucky. "Bamberger would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or the Trump Campaign's specific urging and inspiration."

Three protesters at the event — Nwanguma, Molly Shah and Henry Brousseau — alleged in the original suit against Trump, Bamberger and Matthew Heimbach that audience members pushed and shoved them after being incited by Trump.

In a widely shared video of the incident, the president is heard saying "get them out" and pointing at the trio. The plaintiffs argue they were just there to "peacefully protest."

In his cross claim, Bamberger's attorney Stephen Pence wrote that Trump "promised to pay the legal fees of those who — following Trump's urgings — removed the protesters" at multiple rallies." As such, he claims Trump should be held liable.

The latest legal move comes two weeks after federal judge David J. Hale ruled (external - login to view)that the lawsuit against Bamberger, the Trump campaign and Heimbach can proceed. The judge also rejected Trump's free speech defense against allegations that he incited violence.

"It is plausible that Trump's direction to 'get 'em out of here' advocated the use of force," Hale wrote in an opinion filed March 31. "It was an order, an instruction, a command."

Trump's attorneys responded to the suit on Friday suggesting that while he did say "Get them out of here," the words were not directed at the crowd and that he told security not to hurt the protesters.

Trump also claimed he is "immune from the suit because he is president of the United States."
