Donald Trump&rsquo;s campaign on Friday released a friendly email from a woman who had accused him earlier in the day of sexually accosting her, as well as a statement from the woman's cousin questioning her motives.The disclosures came hours after Summer Zervos, a former contestant on &ldquo;The Apprentice,&rdquo; tearfully described darting around a hotel room in 2007 to avoid Trump&rsquo;s kisses and wandering hands as she sought employment from him.In the April 14 email to Trump&rsquo;s assistant released by the campaign late Friday, Zervos described&nbsp;operating a restaurant in Huntington Beach and asked to get in touch with the businessman-turned-reality television star.&ldquo;He has witnessed both my highs and lows operating a small business and I am pleased to report that business is good,&rdquo; Zervos wrote. &ldquo;&hellip; I would greatly appreciate reconnecting at this time. He will know my intentions are genuine.&rdquo;The GOP presidential nominee&rsquo;s campaign also released a statement from John Barry, who is identified as Zervos&rsquo; first cousin who lives in Mission Viejo. Barry said he is &ldquo;shocked and bewildered&rdquo; by Zervos&rsquo; allegations&nbsp;and noted that she repeatedly made &ldquo;glowing&rdquo; statements about Trump after appearing on the fifth season of &ldquo;The Apprentice.&rdquo;&ldquo;I think Summer wishes she could still be on reality TV, and in an effort to get that back she&rsquo;s saying all of these negative things about Mr. Trump,&rdquo; Barry said. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s not how she talked about him before. I can only imagine that Summer&rsquo;s actions today are nothing more than an attempt to regain the spotlight at Mr. Trump&rsquo;s expense.&rdquo;During a news conference earlier Friday, Zervos said that in 2007, Trump invited her to dinner but then had her ushered to his bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where he kissed her repeatedly against her will, placed his hand on her breast and thrust his genitals at her.She also repeatedly spoke about her past admiration for Trump&nbsp;and having spoken&nbsp;positively about him when diners at her restaurant inquired about Trump&nbsp;during the GOP primary. But she said she grew increasingly anguished and reached out to him by phone and email in April, hoping for an apology.&ldquo;Mr. Trump, when I met you I was so impressed with your talents. I wanted to be like you. I wanted a job in your organization,&rdquo; Zervos said during the news&nbsp;conference. &ldquo;Instead, you treated me as an object to be hit upon. I was incredibly embarrassed by your sexual advances. &hellip; You do not have a right to treat women as sexual objects just because you are a star.&rdquo;Trump responded by denying Zervos&rsquo; allegations and saying he &ldquo;vaguely&rdquo; recalled her from the reality-television show he hosted for more than a decade."To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I&rsquo;ve conducted my life,&rdquo; Trump said in a statement.Zervos is one of several women who have alleged sexual misconduct by Trump in recent days.
