Melania Trump's lawyer, Charles J. Harder, sent a letter today to People Magazine writer Natasha Stoynoff and Editor-In-Chief Jess Cagle asking for them to retract and apologize for a recent article in which Stoynoff claims that Donald Trump forced himself on her.
Stoynoff claimed that Trump had kissed her without consent while she was writing a piece about the Trumps' one-year wedding anniversary.
Melania Trump posted the letter to Twitter.

Some online have tweeted about how Melania's request is oddly specific.
In the letter, Melania draws attention to false statements in the article. However, she takes issue with statements that don't pertain to the accusations of sexual assault, but rather an encounter between Stoynoff and Trump that supposedly took place on Fifth Avenue.
"At the time in questions, Mrs. Trump would not have eve recognized Ms. Stoynoff if they had encountered one another on the street," writes Harder in the letter.
