Corey Lewandowski accused of sexual assault by Joy Villa

A US singer has filed a sexual assault claim against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.

Joy Villa says Mr Lewandowski hit her twice on the backside during an event in Washington last month.

She told the US media she spoke to the police on Christmas Eve, having been persuaded to launch a formal complaint by friends.
