Joy Villa on Sexual Assault Claim Against Corey Lewandowski: I Want ‘Justice to be Served’
— Good Morning America (@GMA) December 29, 2017
Joy Villa gave an interview today on Good Morning America in order to talk about her claims that Corey Lewandowski acted inappropriately towards her during a recent get-together.
The pro-Trump singer has filed a complaint against the president’s former campaign manager, accusing him of getting drunk and repeatedly slapping her butt at a party last month. Villa told Paula Faris that she originally meant to pursue a harassment complaint, but after several hours of speaking with law enforcement, she was told that Lewandowski’s actions amounted to sexual assault.
“It is a crime and that is something that I had to come to terms with,” said Villa. “A crime was committed against me. What I want is for justice to be served.”
Villa went on to say that she wants Lewandowski to say he’s sorry, though she’s not sure if she’ll bring any charges against him because she doesn’t want to generate any negativity or complications for Trumpworld.
“I would rather not go there. I really want an apology,” Villa said. “I want this to be resolved in a manner that all of us can come out feeling good about it. I don’t want to keep dragging his name through the mud.”
Villa also punted asked if she believes the multiple women who came forward during the 2016 election and accused Trump of sexual misconduct throughout the years.
Lewandowski was recently asked about Villa’s accusations during an interview with Charles Payne on Fox Business. Lewandowski said his innocence would be proven as the legal process plays out, and he also awkwardly invoked the time Payne was accused of sexual harassment.
