A former reality-TV contestant who claims Donald Trump sexually assaulted her at a private dinner meeting more than a decade ago said newly unsealed phone records disclosed as part of her defamation lawsuit against the president corroborate elements of her story.

Summer Zervos, who appeared on Trump’s “Apprentice,’’ sued the president the month he took office, after he called her a liar and denied her claim that he kissed her inappropriately in his Trump Tower office and later groped her in his bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
