We’re about three weeks away from the presidential election and the stacks are against rebuplician nominee, Donald Trump. The New York Times recently published a story about two of the women who accused Trump sexual abused this week and Donald Trump threaten to sue the publication.
Trump claims the story which was published on Wednesday was based on the false accounts. Trump called the article “entirely fiction” and his lawyers demanded a retraction. The Times is refused to pull the article and are welcoming the lawsuit. “We did what the law allows,” said an attorney for the newspaper in a written response. “We published newsworthy information about a subject of deep public concern. If Mr. Trump disagrees, if he believes American citizens had no right to hear what these women had to say and that the law of this country forces us and those who would criticize him to stand silent or be punished, we welcome the opportunity to have a court set him straight.”
The article includes the accounts Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks. Leeds claims Trump groped her repeatedly during a flight in the 1980s, while Crooks alleged that he unwantedly kissed her when she was working as a receptionist in Trump Tower back in 2005. Trump’s camp says they have evidence to disprove both accounts and plan to make it public soon. Trump is accusing the NY Times of libel and promised to move forward with the suit as he mentioned at a rally in West Palm Beach, Florida. “These vicious claims about me of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false and the Clintons know it,” said Trump. “These events never ever happened and the people that said they meekly fully understand.”
