Witness Refuting Trump Accuser Once Admitted to Supplying Underage Boys to Pols

trump-18The Donald Trump campaign has finally produced evidence to supposedly refute one of the harassment claims against him. The only problem is the first thing that comes up when you Google this guy.

Jessica Leeds claimed to The New York Times that Trump groped her on an airplane decades ago, but the Trump camp has provided Anthony Gilberthorpe as their character witness to say this didn’t happen.

And, oh boy, the things he told The New York Post:

Indeed, Gilberthorpe claimed, Leeds was “trying too hard” in her attempt to win Trump over.

“She wanted to marry him,” Gilberthorpe said of Leeds, who apparently made the confession when Trump excused himself and went to the bathroom.

There was no kissing, but the “shrill” Leeds was “very much in your face” with the real estate developer.

He explained, “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.”

But, see, there’s that pesky little thing that comes up when you Google Gilberthorpe.

In 2014, he made this confession:

Former Conservative activist Anthony Gilberthorpe said he told Margaret Thatcher 25 years ago about what he had witnessed and gave her names of those involved.

His allegations that he saw top Tories having sex with boys comes after David Cameron launched a Government inquiry into claims of a cover-up.

Anthony, 52, said: “I am prepared to speak to the inquiry. I believe I am a key witness.”
