Women accuse Trump of groping, forcibly kissing them

Women accuse Trump of groping, forcibly kissing them, by AFP.

A barrage of accusations that Donald Trump groped or inappropriately kissed women have rocked the race for the White House, with the Republican nominee angrily denying the reports and his campaign branding them “character assassination.”

Claims by at least five women in accounts reported by The New York Times, NBC, People Magazine and other outlets came to light after Trump said in Sunday’s presidential debate with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton that he had never sexually assaulted women. …

“This entire article is fiction, and for the New York Times to launch a completely false, coordinated character assassination against Mr Trump on a topic like this is dangerous,” senior communicators advisor Jason Miller said in a statement.

ABC News reported three senior-level sources as saying Trump is drafting a lawsuit against the newspaper for defamation. “Your article is reckless, defamatory and constitutes libel per se,” Trump lawyer Marc Kasowitz wrote in a letter to the daily. “It is apparent from, among other things, the timing of the article, that it is nothing more than a politically-motivated effort to defeat Mr Trump’s candidacy.”

Meanwhile there are videos of Bill Clinton doing similar things and rumors of much worse videos floating around the web — let’s see if any of them get shown on mainstream media.

There is a slew of US news as this presidential race heats right up, fueled by damaging material stored up and now released — round after round of embarrassing emails for Hillary, and videos of Bill Clinton and Donald Trump behaving poorly. Who stored the lewd video of Trump for 11 years then released it now? Some are pointing to the Republican establishment and the Bushes, others to the Democrats.

The polls are flying around (see below), and the establishment Republicans are pretty open about their support for Clinton (below).
