Trump Sexual Assault Accuser On ‘Pussy Grab’ Tape: ‘See? This Is What I Was Saying!’


Jill Harth (Inside Edition promotional still) Jill Harth, who has accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in the past, including during an interview with LawNewz, has resurfaced with her thoughts on the tape of Trump talking about how he can “grab” a woman’s genitals without consequences. After the recording surfaced on Friday, a good bit of the response on social media pointed out that Harth had accused Trump of just that, arguing that this confirmed her story. Harth agrees, telling “Inside Edition” in a new interview airing Monday and Tuesday that this vindicates her.

“It made me feel like, ‘See? This is what I was saying,” Harth says in the new interview. “He’s saying in his words what he does. How can people not believe me now?’” However, her anger was reignited when Trump denied during Sunday’s debate that his comments reflected anything he had actually done. She said that “He lied. He lied and it made me angry that he did that.”

On “Inside Edition,” here’s how Harth describes the alleged attacks:

  1. “Donald placed me right next to him, and that was the time when he started to go for it. He had his hand on my leg, moving forward, went for it, touching my private parts. I got up and I just said, ‘I got to go to the bathroom.’ My way of dealing with this was to flee the area.”
  2. “He is pushing me up against the wall, forcing a kiss on me, and again with his hands all over my body and up my dress with his hands.”
  3. “It turned into a wrestling match. He started to kiss me, had his hands all over me, and again had his hands up my dress.”

Her ex-husband, George Houraney, backs up her story.  “She said, ‘He kept trying to grope me under the table,’” he recalled. “And I said, ‘What are you talking about? I said, ‘Maybe he was just…’ and she said, ‘No, no, no. He wasn’t playing a game. This was just dead serious.’”

The Trump campaign denied the allegations, telling “Inside Edition” that “Mr. Trump denies each and every statement made by Ms. Harth as these 24-year-old allegations lack any merit or veracity.” The campaign also sent over emails from Harth offering her services as a makeup artist to the campaign, which she justified by saying that “I’m a freelance makeup artist trying to get work and I was being nice.”
