A lawyer for a former Trump campaign aide who accused the president of sexually assaulting her says he is hoping to have the name changed to Mr. Williams.
The lawyer for Jason Williams, who is accused of groping a woman and assaulting her in a hotel room, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the name should be changed from “Jason” to “Williams.”
Williams is being represented by his former campaign manager, Jill Filipovic.
Filipovic said her client is not a racist and believes that Trump sexually assaulted her in an inappropriate manner.
Williams was a political consultant for the Trump campaign and the president’s personal lawyer, Mark Corallo.
He was fired from Trump’s Washington office last month.
The Associated Press has chosen not to name the lawyer for Williams who was charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault and one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct on Feb. 17.
Williams is due in court on April 7.
