A day after Jessica Leeds accused Donald Trump of sexual assault in a story reported by the New York Times, Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs used his large audience on Twitter — roughly 797,000 followers — to advertise the woman’s New York address and telephone number.
This is the Dirtiest Campaign in our History: #MAGA #TrumpPence16 #AmericaFirst https://t.co/5pPUrgfM0P My Retweet,My Mistake,My Apology to Jessica Leeds Lou Dobbs tweets Trump accuser's address and phone # https://t.co/iOP6MJvCEx #MAGA #Dobbs The post claimed that Leeds’s phone number matched one listed for the Clinton Foundation in WikiLeaks releases, though only five of the 10 digits were the same, reported Business Insider, and three of those overlapping numbers included an area code for New York.
Leeds, 74, was one of two women who accused Donald Trump of groping and kissing them without permission in a story published in the New York Times this week.
After their accusations hit the Internet, several more women stepped forward to report similar behavior, including a People magazine reporter who wrote in an essay in the publication that Trump pinned her against the wall during a 2005 interview at his Florida estate, “forcing his tongue down my throat.” In the Times story, Leeds accused Trump of groping her breast and trying to shove his hand up her skirt while they sat side-by-side on a first class flight.
Trump and his supporters spent the day Thursday seeking to discredit the accusations of Leeds and the other women who have stepped forward, calling their claims “vicious” and “totally and absolutely false.” He called the women “horrible, horrible liars.” More about badges | Request a badge More about badges | Request a badge More about badges | Request a badge More about badges | Request a badge More about badges | Request a badge More about badges | Request a badge More about badges | Request a badge More about badges | Request a badge Comments our editors find particularly useful or relevant are displayed in Top Comments, as are comments by users with these badges: .
