Lawyer claims she was groped by Clarence Thomas in 1999
The Trump phenomenon of sexual predatory behavior has now reached the Supreme Court.
Moira Smith told the National Law Journal the incident happened when she was 23-years-old during a dinner party she attended as part of the Truman Scholars program.
“He groped me while I was setting the table, suggesting I should sit ‘right next to him,’” Smith said. She further accused Thomas of grabbing her buttocks several times during the evening.
The National Law Journal says it spoke with three of Smith’s roommates from back in 1999 and they recalled her mentioning the inappropriate touching incident at the time.
However, a Supreme Court spokesperson released a statement Thomas’s behalf, vehemently denying the claims.
“This claim is preposterous and it never happened,” Thomas said, through the spokesperson.
