Trashelle Odom statement police Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski unwanted sexual advances


A Donald Trump super PAC donor who claims former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski made unwanted sexual advances towards her last weekend has  sent a statement to police outlining the allegations.

Trashelle Odom, of Boise, Idaho, the wife of construction company executive, claims in the police report that the married Lewandowski touched her repeatedly while seated next to her at an event, followed her around, touched her leg and buttocks, and ‘stalked’ her throughout the evening.

According to her statement to Idaho cops, Lewandowski repeatedly remarked about the size of his genitals. He also ‘described his sexual performance and showed Odom his hotel room key.’

She said the Lewandowski swore while speaking about sex as he repeatedly approached her.

‘Those statements, coupled with his demeanor and aggressive behaviors,’ made Odom ‘intimidated and frightened and fearful for my safety and that of my family members,’ Odom said in a statement to police.  

‘It was as if he thought he had a sense of ownership over me, from the start,’ she added. 

A lawyer for Lewandowski, who has been married since 2005 and has four kids, blasted the allegations as ‘rumors’. 

Odom also alleges Lewandowski claims he wielded enormous power thanks to his connections to the former president and said he had committed violent acts earlier in his life. 

Odom was one of around two dozen major Republican Party donors at the event which took place during an event at the Westgate Las Vegas hotel for the Victoria’s Voice Foundation, which focuses on substance abuse.

Odom is said to have appeared uncomfortable at the event while Lewandowski appeared to be intoxicated. 

The statement was sent to police in Boise, Idaho, where Odom lives, with the intention of having it delivered to their counterparts in Las Vegas.

The three-page statement, which was seen by Politico, estimates that Odom rebuffed Lewandowski’s physical advances 10 times.  

She accuses Lewandowski, 48, of following her around after leaving the dinner and that he remarked how she had a ‘nice ass’. 

The married Lewandowski is then alleged to have continued his pursuit at a post-dinner reception. 

Earlier in the week, Odom made a similar statement as she went public with the allegations. 

‘I am coming forward because he needs to be held accountable,’ Odom said. ‘I am blessed to have a loving husband and family behind me. I want other women to know that you can be heard, too, and together we can stop terrible things like this from happening.’ 

Odom wrote how she was afraid upon reaching her hotel room because  Lewandowski’s room was right next to hers. She tells how she timed her departure the following day to ensure she did not run into him. 

‘I went into my room crying and trembling as I did not know if I had just ruined everything that my family had worked so hard to grow,’ Odom said in the statement.

Lewandowski’s attorney, David Chesnoff refused to comment on the statement, saying he has yet to see it. 

‘It’s premature to respond to something that hasn’t been filed up until now and that we haven’t seen and we will respond if appropriate,’ Chesnoff said. 

Trashelle Odom’s husband, John Odom, has also released a statement after the Trump team said they were cutting ties with Lewandowski, one of his longest-serving advisers and his first campaign manager. 

‘We believe in law enforcement, and are hopeful that the police and prosecutors will use this information to pursue justice,’ John Odom wrote. ‘For all others with information regarding this man’s violent, harassing, and traumatizing behavior, we encourage you to speak up. Accountability is sorely needed.’ 

John Odom’s statement came after Lewandowski was fired from his role as head of the pro-Trump super PAC Make America Great Again Action earlier in the week.

‘Corey Lewandowski will be going on to other endeavors and we very much want to thank him for his service. He will no longer be associated with Trump World,’ Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich wrote on Twitter. 

Lewandowski was removed from the former president’s orbit earlier after he was fired as his campaign manager in 2016. 

He would appear to return in 2017 when Trump offered him a job with his administration, which he rejected, telling friends that it was ‘beneath him,’ the Daily Beast reported. 

Three years later Trump appointed him to a Pentagon advisory board in the final weeks of his presidency, which President Joe Biden would block in early February.
