The campaign team member who accused prominent conservative leader Matt Schlapp of groping him sued a conservative fundraiser Tuesday over comments made on Twitter after he made his allegations.

According to the lawsuit filed in DC district court, Caroline Wren, a top fundraiser for Trump’s 2020 campaign who was involved in planning the rally at Ellipse before the January 6 riots, tweeted statements » false and defamatory» about Schlapp’s accuser after the Daily Beast first reported the allegations against Schlapp.

Wren claimed the staffer was «terminated from multiple campaigns for lying and unethical behavior» and «for being a habitual liar,» according to the lawsuit.

Attorneys for the accuser said in the lawsuit that they sent a letter to Wren asking her to remove the statements she made on Twitter. Wren «did not remove or retract them, and continued to maliciously post statements» about him, according to the lawsuit.

Court documents show a letter addressed to Wren dated January 12, referring to tweets she made about the accuser the previous day.

The lawsuit seeks more than $500,000 in damages from Wren.

In a tweet in response to the lawsuit, Wren called it «pretty absurd» for the staffer to sue for defamation, claiming his employment history supports his earlier statements.

NBC News has reached out to Wren for additional comment.

The lawsuit comes weeks after the plaintiff accused Schlapp, president of the American Conservative Union, of groping him while he worked as a staff member for then-Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker. The staff member sued Schlapp and his wife, Mercedes Schlapp, for $9.4 million.

A lawyer for Schlapp has denied the allegations.
