Mike Pence said more evidence is coming that will discredit the now 11 women that have accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting them. The billionaire has also made similar comments.
On Friday, Pence was a guest on TODAY, he sat down with Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, and he spoke at length about the women, who claimed that they were groped, kissed or sexually assaulted by Mr. Trump.
In several letters, the business mogul has denied the allegations and took things a step further by saying on the campaign trail that some of the women, who are attacking him, would not be his first choice.
Many of the alleged sexual assault survivors, who have stepped forward, said they decided to do so after seeing the horrific Access Hollywood tape where Trump made disgusting comments about women while talking to then co-host Billy Bush.
Pence, who is an evangelical Christian, defended his running mate by saying that he expects more information about Trump’s accusers to be released to the media in just “hours.” Pence explained to the hosts:
“Before the day is out, [there will] be more evidence publicly that shows and calls into question these latest allegations.”
The Republican vice presidential candidate added:
“Stay tuned. I know that there’s more information that’s going to be coming out that’ll back his claim that this is all categorically false.”
Pence has also claimed the women accusing Trump are in cahoots with Hillary Clinton‘s campaign to take the focus away from the disturbing Wikileaks emails. Pence stated:
“The difficulty is that at this point in the campaign, it’s astonishing to see the enormous coverage of these unfounded allegations, un-established allegations, compared to an avalanche of emails coming out of Hillary Clinton’s years as secretary of state.”
Since Pence made the comments, the campaign has not released any documents or videos to discredit the accusers. However, a 54-year-old British man named Anthony Gilberthorpe, has come out as a witness. The man, who says Trump is innocent in this case, was involved in a major sex scandal in 2014. He blasted Jessica Leeds‘ story and said:
“I have only met this accuser once and frankly cannot imagine why she is seeking to make out that Trump made sexual advances on her. Not only did he not do so (and I was present at all times) but it was she that was the one being flirtatious.”
Gilberthorpe based his statement on his great memory, he explained:
“What she said about Trump is wrong. I mean, no decent human being could sit by and have a woman go on television and tell the United States of America — accuse an individual of sexually molesting. It’s wrong for Trump, it’s wrong for me. But you know something else? It’s wrong for the American people.”
Experts say that more women are planning to come out and share their stories with the world.
