MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Attorneys for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are demanding that the New York Times retract an article which claims he groped and kissed two women decades ago.

In the article Rachel Crooks, a then 22-year-old receptionist for a company located in Trump Tower, claims the billionaire kissed her on the cheeks and mouth.

Jessica Leeds said Trump touched her under her skirt as she sat next to him on a flight 30 years ago.

“He was like an octopus. It was like had six arms. His hands were all over the place,” said Leeds.

In a letter to the New York Times, Trump’s attorneys called the allegations “reckless, defamatory and constitutes live per se.”

It went on to say that the timing of the report was nothing more than a “politically-motivated effort to defeat Mr. Trump’s candidacy.

On Wednesday Hillary Clinton’s campaign seized on the New York Times report.

“This latest incident about you know how he treats women. Well he’s doubled down on his excuse that it was just locker room talk,” said Clinton during a campaign stop in Las Vegas.

Reports of forcible touching and kissing at the hands of Trump emerged in other publications Wednesday including People Magazine and the Palm Beach Post.

Mindy McGilvary, a photography assistant, told the Palm Beach Post that Trump groped her at Mar-a-Lago 13 years ago. Former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon claims Trump would walk into dressing rooms unannounced.

“He just came strolling right in, there was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing, some girls were topless others were naked,” she said.

The new bombshell allegations come as an average of polls nationwide show Trump trailing rival Clinton by six points with the election less than a month away.

    This is a bogus story and the NY Times is going to be sued by Trump for libel and the American people are now going after yellow journalism by also filing a class action lawsuit against the Times and other crooked bias media.

    1. MRLN says:

      It isn’t libel. Those women did in fact make the accusations. The women may be lying, but the Times isn’t reporting that. The Times is reporting that accusations were made, publicly, which is true.
