A legal expert said while he's in office, President Trump will have to answer charges he defamed a woman who said he sexually harassed her when she was a contestant on the TV show he formerly hosted.

The precedent was set by a lawsuit brought against Bill Clinton by Paula Jones, said Delaware Law School-Widener Dean Rod Smolla.

"The Supreme Court has held in a federal court case arising from alleged sexual misconduct while the President was Governor of Arkansas, before Mr. Clinton was President, that there is no immunity--that the case goes forward," said Smolla.

Summer Zervos, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," claimed President Trump kissed her, touched her inappropriately and tried to get her to lie on a bed and watch TV--the President claimed the charges aren't true, and Zervos is suing him in a state court for defamation.
