All these sexual allegations suddenly coming out again….I guess the Democrats’ narrative on the Trump-Russia collusion didn’t work, so now they have to try a different one. Since sexual harassment allegations seem to be the trend these days, and it’s like one big ‘coming out party’, it looks like Democrats are now trying to nail Trump with sexual harassment allegations. I mean let’s face it, whether Judge Roy Moore was guilty or not, the Democrats pushed the narrative that he WAS and it worked for the election in Alabama. So, why not try the same on Trump?
Two months ago former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly revealed the existence of a tape that he claims shows what he described as “an anti-Trump attorney” offering a woman $200,000 during the presidential election last year to issue false sexual harassment claims against then-GOP nominee Donald Trump.
“It exists,” he said to Newsmax at the time. “We have urged the person who has the tape to hand it over to the U.S. attorney, because my investigative team believes there are three separate crimes on the audio tape.”
On Friday, O’Reilly doubled down on that claim during an interview with conservative talk show host Glenn Beck, though he declined to offer a deadline for when the tape might finally be released.
“There is an audiotape of an anti-Trump person offering $200,000 to a woman to accuse Donald Trump of untoward behavior,” he said.
When Beck asked whether this tape will ever be released, O’Reilly replied by maintaining that he “may have to go to the U.S. attorney” himself.
“I don’t want to have to do that and inject myself into the story … but I had my lawyer listen to the tape,” O’Reilly said. “There are at least three crimes on the tape. So as a citizen, I may have to do this.”
He cautioned, though, that the tape isn’t in his possession but rather with “someone who knows the seriousness of this situation.”
Then, Beck asked, why won’t this mysterious someone simply release the tape to the public?
“I can’t really get into that at this point, but I can tell you, Donald Trump knows about the tape,” O’Reilly said. “And I, for the life of me, am sitting here going, ‘Why on Earth are you allowing a movement to try to smear you when you have such a powerful piece of evidence that shows this is an industry — that there are false charges and money changing hands?’”
But Trump doesn’t “have such a powerful piece of evidence” at his disposal; the actual owner of the tape does, and until he or she chooses to release the tape, there might not be much the president can do about it.
Listen to O’Reilly’s full statement to Beck below:
O’Reilly: There is a tape, Beck, an audio tape of an anti-Trump person offering $200,000 to a woman to accuse Donald Trump of untoward behavior.
Beck: Is this tape going to be released?
O’Reilly: I may have to go to the US Attorney myself. I don’t wanna have to do that and inject myself into the story, but I had my lawyer listen to the tape. He’s listened to it. There are at least three crimes on the tape. So as a citizen, I may have to do this.
Beck: I will tell you Bill, the first thing that you say – well I’m trying to get it, I’m trying to get it so it can be released. You weren’t talking about getting it for YOU to release it, but it had to be out there. And I think the first time I said to you, I mean, if they don’t – you’ve gotta bring it to the US Attorney.
O’Reilly: Again, it’s in the hands of someone who knows the seriousness of the situation.
Beck: What is their hesitancy?
O’Reilly: You know, I can’t really get into that at this point. But I can tell you that Donald Trump knows about the tape. And I’m, for the life of me, sitting here going “Why on earth are you allowing a movement to try to smear you when you have a powerful – and I mean it’s powerful – piece of evidence that shows that this is an industry. That there are false charges and money changing hands.” It’s so frustrating but I wanted your listeners to know it, it’s there, it’s amazing, and it will change the whole discussion if it ever gets out.
Keep in mind that the former Fox News host first mentioned this tape two months earlier, and yet it still remains unpublished.
I think O’Reilly should take a copy of this tape and post it all over social media. Post it far and wide for the world to see. Let it go viral!
It’s time to put this narrative to sleep.
Trump is our president and the crybaby liberals and Democrats need to deal with it! The rest of us dealt with 8 years of Obama! Get over it! Deal with it and move on!
