If Donald Trump follows through on his threat to sue the women who have accused him of sexual assault, the nation’s top lawyers are ready to jump to their defense pro bono.
“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign,” Trump claimed during a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday. “Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”
Trump has also threatened to sue publications such as the New York Times for publishing the accusations, which is their right because of the First Amendment.
So whether Trump becomes president or not, his first act after the election will be to file lawsuits against those who have accused him of sexual assault. That is, if he has the balls to actually do it.
But if he does, some of America’s best lawyers are stepping up to the plate to represent Trump’s accusers free of charge.
Leading the effort is Ted Boutrous of the law firm Gibson Dunn.

He then repeated his vow nine days later and informed everyone that other lawyers are joining him.

And those other lawyers include Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe.

Donald Trump is in serious trouble. He can’t sue people for exercising their First Amendment rights and he would certainly lose in open court if he tried. And with several prominent attorneys willingly representing his accusers for free, Trump would not only lose in court, he’s lose a ton of money as well.
