Trump: Evidence Disproving Sexual Assault Allegations Will Be Released "At The Appropriate Time"

At a rally in West Palm Beach on Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump described <a href="">reporting in Wednesday's <i>New York Times</i> accusing him of sexual assault</a> as "slander and libel." "It is part of a concerted, coordinated and vicious attack," he said. "It is not a coincidence that these attacks come at the exact same moment, and all together, as WikiLeaks releases documents exposing the massiv einternational corruption of the Clinton machine -- including 2,000 more emails just this morning." "These vicious claims about me, of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and aboslutely false," he said. "And the Clintons know it." "These claims are all fabricated. They are pure ficiton and outright lies. These events never, ever happened, and the people that said them meekly fully understand. Take a look at these people. Study these people, and you'll understand also. The claims are preposterous, ludicrous and defy truth, common sense and logic. We already have substantial evidence to dispute these lies, and it will be made public in an appropriate way and at an appropriate time -- very soon." "These lies come from outlets whose past stories and past claims have already been discredited," he said. "The media outlets did not even attempt to confirm the most basic facts, because even a simple investigation would have shown that these are nothing more than false smears," he said. "These people are horrible people" he said. "And horrible, horrible liars. And interestingly it happens to appear 26 days before our very important election -- isn't that amazing." "This invented account has already been debunked by eyewitnesses who were there. The very witness identified by the author has said the story was absolutely false." He concluded: "I will not allow the Clinton machine to turn our campaign into a discussion of their slanders and lies, but will remain focused on the issues facing the American people."
