Man countersues Trump, says he urged Ky. protesters' removal

The attorney representing 75-year-old veteran and Trump fan Alvin Bamberg said that his assault of a protester was directly caused by the inflammatory comments made by then-candidate Trump.

The president's lawyers contend that Trump was not ordering them to harm the protesters.

The response filed by Trump contradicts the argument of a co-defendant, a Trump supporter accused of shoving a young black woman at the rally. During the altercation, Trump shouted at them to "get out" and "get 'em out of here!"

U.S. District Judge David Hale ruled on April 1 that there's ample evidence that could be seen as supporting allegations that the protesters' injuries were a "direct and proximate result" of Trump's actions.

Tottenham keep up Chelsea chase with 4-0 rout of Bournemouth
Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side are now four points behind Chelsea, who face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday. Swansea fell 1-0 to Watford to stay in the drop zone when Etienne Capoue scored the only goal of the game in the 42nd minute.

According to the report, Bamberger's lawyers also argued that their client "admits only that he touched a woman", and not "that he assaulted that woman".

Trump's team also denies that he was urging the crowd to take action against the protesters when he repeatedly said "get them out of here".

Bamberger, a member of the Korean War Veterans Association from OH, "would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or the Trump campaign's specific urging and inspiration", Bamberger's lawyer wrote. "Bamberger would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or Trump campaign's specific urging and inspiration".

The case being pursued against Trump was lodged by a group of three protesters who were shoved, punched, and assaulted by a Trump mob during a rally in March of 2016.

Laurie's message on filling the void in your life led more than 6,000 people to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. There are many things that can be believed about Jesus. "You see the best and the worst of human nature".

In that response, attorneys for Trump asked that the lawsuit be dismissed and the president be awarded costs, expenses and attorney's fees.

"Mr. Trump is immune from suit because he is President of the United States", his lawyers wrote Friday, rebutting a complaint filed by three protesters who claimed Trump incited a riot against them at a Louisville, Ky., event in March 2016.

"Plaintiffs' claims are barred by their unclean hands", the lawyers concluded.

Lawyers for Trump have requested a jury trial and the protesters are seeking an unknown amount of damages. He admitted that he "physically pushed a woman down the aisle toward the exit" in the letter, according to the lawsuit.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday launched BHIM-Aadhar platform - a biometric-based payment system - in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Already, 27 major banks are on board along with 7.15 lakh merchants who will start accepting payments using Bhim-Aadhaar.

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.
