A British man named Anthony Gilberthorpe, 54, is countering claims that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump sexually groped a woman on a cross-country flight back in 1980. In an exclusive interview arranged by the campaign, Gilberthorpe said he was present on the flight where Jessica Leeds claimed Trump groped her.
Gilberthorpe says he was sitting across from Leeds and contacted the Trump campaign when her publicly made account was at odds with what he witnessed.
“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 claims.
