Donald Trump and Natasha Stoynoff
Now here is an interesting case against Trump. The first two cases (Case 1 and Case 2), there was question on the credibility of the witnesses and nature of the abuse. The Natasha Stoynoff testimony again sounds really damaging to Trump. Is this evil man an old sex hound, or he is just a normal guy with a billion dollars? This case sounded really interesting and really damaging to Trump
First off, there are witnesses to this case. This is different than in the other two cases. 6 people came forward to help verify the witness testimony. 3 of them were colleagues as well as 2 friends a journalism professor. This is where the waters get muddy for Donald Trump.
Paul Mclaughlin was her professor at college, a journalism professor and verified her story. He advised her not to come forward. This is not good for Trump. In this case we have 6 witnesses and one being a professor at college.
He is a Toronto-based professor and writer, Paul McLaughlin believes former Toronto Star journalist Natasha Stoynoff is telling the truth – saying her story hasn’t changed since she first told him about it shortly after the alleged 2005 attack.
I was her former jlsm prof/mentor. She didn’t know what to do and wanted advice. She was crying and angry. #natashastoynoff.

Melania Trump was said to have seen Natasha Stoynoff in a situations after the assault and denies this encounter ever took place. So either Melania Trump is lying or she doesn’t either remember the encounter, or the encounter didn’t happen.
It has been claimed that Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in 2005, while she was on assignment for People magazine.
McLaughlin says that he was a mentor to Stoynoff, so she came forward at the time to seek his advice about what to do about Trump. The Huffington Post says Stoynoff was a former student of McLaughlin’s, and she decided not to report the incident after speaking with him.
“The reason I’m speaking about this — and it is with her blessing, by the way – is that she is being accused by a man running for the presidency of the United States of being a complete liar, of fabricating a story about something that for her was quite horrible,” he said.
In 2005, Natasha Stoynoff phoned me, distraught, crying. Said Trump assaulted her. She is telling truth. #natashastoynoff

“Now (Trump’s) got to say that I’m a liar, too, and I’m not. I’m telling the truth,” said McLaughlin, who recalled Stoynoff being deeply disturbed by her encounter with Trump.
“It really shook her and she didn’t know what to do, and among the people that she would turn to, I was one that she would call and ask for advice and that’s what she did,” said McLaughlin, a former journalism professor at Ryerson University who now teaches at the York University.
McLaughlin said he told her not to go public with her accusation at the time, in order to protect her career.
“Here he is with his very pregnant wife in an adjacent room; he is not the type of person who is going to admit what he did. And I thought that because there was no evidence other than her word versus his word that he could easily turn around and accuse her of hitting on him and he could destroy her career,” McLaughlin recalled.
“What saddens me more is that someone of Donald Trump’s prominence is waging war against a young, talented, writer and saying things he knows are 100-per-cent wrong,” he said. “He knows he is not telling what happened accurately and I just … it seems to be a pattern with him.”
On Wednesday October 26th 2016, Stoynoff published her story online in People.
She wrote that when traveling to visit Donald and Melania Trump to write a feature about the couple’s first wedding anniversary, Trump “shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.” Stoynoff wrote that Melania, who was pregnant at the time, was changing upstairs in preparation for a photo shoot.
Trump has denied the allegations and tweeted a suggestion that the story was made up: “Why didn’t the writer of the twelve year old article in People Magazine mention the ‘incident’ in her story. Because it did not happen!” he wrote.
Trump has fired back, forcefully denying the claims of all of the women and alleging the election is being rigged.
Nothing ever happened with any of these women. Totally made up nonsense to steal the election. Nobody has more respect for women than me!

According to CBC, McLaughlin says that Stoynoff told him how Trump “had come onto her very strongly, very aggressively, and that it could have been much worse if someone who worked for him had not come into the room and interrupted them.”
It is very possible that no one came forward because Stoynoff told them not to come forward, which has been claimed by all parties, so this is very damaging to Donald Trump. McLaughlin said Stoynoff, who was a student of his when he taught journalism at Ryerson University, called him, upset, shortly after it happened, and that he stayed in touch with her over the years.
Stoynoff is one of several women who have gone public with allegations that Trump sexually assaulted them. This follows a leaked video from 2005 that show Trump bragging about groping and kissing women without their consent.
McLaughlin didn’t know Stoynoff was going to go public with her story before she did this week, but said he recognized her story when he read it. He said it is the same as the one she told him years ago.
So this story is corroborated by 6 people and all of them are independent to the witness. This is not good for Donald Trump.
“I think that it’s terrible that she had to go through that. That someone who she thought admired her work turned on her that way, and destroyed what was a good professional relationship,” McLaughlin said. “Not only do I have compassion for Natasha but for anyone who has gone through this in their life.”
McLaughlin said if he could go back in time, he’d stand by what he told Stoynoff. He thinks she made the right choice in no longer covering Trump.
In her published account of what happened, Stoynoff said she only told a few close friends and family about her experience in Mar-a-Lago.
“In time, I chalked it up to one of the hazards of a roller-coaster ride of celebrity journalism: I’d danced barefoot in Cannes with John Travolta, sang with Paul McCartney, talked about Bogie with Bacall, quoted Shakespeare with Brando and Prince Andrew yelled at me until I cried,” Stoynoff wrote. “Oh, and Donald Trump forced himself on me. I tried to make myself believe it was no big deal. Now he’s running for president of our country.”
Some of McLaughlin’s previous tweets are political in nature and anti-Trump, although more of his tweets are about journalism, writing, and other issues. So let’s examine Paul McLaughlin. Some examples of the political tweets are:

So who is Paul McLaughlin ? According to his own website … “I’m a highly experienced freelance writer, broadcaster, interviewing and performance trainer, communications consultant and university teacher.”
Over a long career I’ve written virtually every kind of publication for the media and the corporate world, including magazine and newspaper features, books, plays, radio, TV and video scripts, speeches and brochures.
I’ve also done extensive journalism teaching at university and interview training for media outlets such as the CBC and in the private sector.
In addition to writing and producing, I do a considerable amount of public speaking, especially about interviewing and other aspects of communication.
Although most of my work is conducted in Canada, I enjoy traveling and am available for assignments in any location. I’ve been fortunate to have had projects in numerous countries, especially throughout the U.S., but also in Asia, Europe and the Caribbean.
So he is linked to the CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting system. If you look at any of the articles he has wrote over the years, there is none regarding Donald Trump. So it’s not as if he has a real political agenda or anything really against Trump.
He has no wikipedia page and if you search for any type of affiliation, he is Canadian and unaffiliated. So this clearly shows that he is most likely not politically motivated. His story along with 5 others, corroborates Natasha’s story, so …
This account is most likely true. The Donald may have been involved in this one. So out of 3 of the cases so far, 2 have been a bit shady, with no witnesses and subjective accounts, but this case is not too good for the president of the United States.
Did we just elect another Kennedy? 🙂 Only time will tell.
