WASHINGTON, Oct 16 - A woman who has said that US President Donald Trump groped her during a 2007 meeting has subpoenaed his presidential campaign for any documents concerning similar allegations, according to a subpoena filed in New York State Supreme Court.

Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality TV show "The Apprentice," sought all documents from his campaign pertaining to "any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately," identifying nine by name, the subpoena said.

Trump has denied Zervos' accusation in the past. On Monday, asked about the subpoena at an impromptu White House news conference, Trump called it "totally fake news."

"It's just fake. It's fake. It's made-up stuff, and it's disgraceful, what happens, but that happens in the - that happens in the world of politics," he said.

The Trump campaign did not immediately return a request for comment on the subpoena.

Last October, shortly before the Nov. 8 presidential election, Zervos held a news conference to say that Trump kissed her, touched her breast and tried to get her to lie down on a bed with him during a meeting about a possible job.

The accusation came a week after a 2005 video emerged showing the Republican candidate bragging about groping and making unwanted sexual advances.
