    Man accused of attacking rally protester says Trump inspired him

    Donald Trump supporter Alvin Bamberger is accused of assaulting a protester at a 2016 campaign rally in Kentucky.

    But if the 75-year-old veteran lost his cool at the Louisville rally, he did so at the "urging and inspiration" of his President, Bamberger alleges in a lawsuit against Trump.

    "Trump and/or the Trump campaign urged and inspired Bamberger to act as he did," according to the Ohio resident's claim, which was filed in Louisville federal court on Friday.

    ....

    'Urged and inspired' by Trump

    Now Bamberger is coming after Trump, with a claim filed by Louisville attorney Stephen Pence that alleges the then-candidate and his campaign "repeatedly urged people attending" his rallies to "remove individuals who were voicing opposition to Trump's candidacy."

    At some rallies, the lawsuit says, Trump and his campaign "promised to pay the legal fees of those who -- following Trump's urgings -- removed the protesters."

    Bamberger admits he "touched" a woman but denied the assault, according to court documents.

    "To the extent that Bamberger acted, he did so in response to -- and inspired by -- Trump and/or the Trump campaign's urging to remove the protesters," the lawsuit says.

    "If Bamberger is adjudged liable to Nwanguma for his actions, Trump and/or the Trump campaign should be adjudged liable to Bamberger in an equal sum, because Trump and/or the Trump campaign urged and inspired Bamberger to act as he did."


    'Immune from suit because he is President'

    In court documents, Trump's attorneys denied the allegations, asked the court to dismiss the case and argued their client is "immune from suit because he is President."

    Trump's legal team also asked that the President be awarded costs, expenses and attorney fees.

    The President's attorneys admitted their client said "Get them out of here" during the rally -- referring to the protesters -- but said he was not directing his comments to the crowd.

    And, they said, Trump instructed his security, "Don't hurt them."

    ....

    The negligence claims arise from the plaintiffs' allegations that Trump knew his supporters would attack protesters. In particular, Trump's directive to eject a black woman was reckless, given the presence of a white nationalist group in the audience, the complaint says.

    White Nationalist Blames Trump in Campaign Rally Assault Suit

    A white nationalist accused of assaulting three protesters at a Donald Trump campaign rally last year alleged the president authorized him to remove disruptive people when he said "Get 'em out of here," court papers filed Monday say.

    Matthew Heimbach, of the Traditionalist Worker Party, became the second defendant named in a March 30 lawsuit alleging Trump incited the assault to use the president's own words as a defense.

    "Heimbach relied on Trump's authority to order disruptive persons removed and that Trump was legally within his rights to ask other attendees to assist in defending their constitutional rights," the documents say.

    If Heimbach is found liable in the suit, the documents say, Trump should indemnify him.
