A woman prominently featured in a New York Times piece claiming she was sexually assaulted by Donald Trump thirty years ago appears to be running into real trouble with the truth. It turns out that businesswoman Jessica Leeds may have never been on an airplane with Donald Trump — on a commercial flight during which she says the New York businessman repeatedly groped her.
Trump has categorically denied Leeds’ explosive charge.
The phony story in the failing @nytimes is a TOTAL FABRICATION. Written by same people as last discredited story on women. WATCH!

Both sides are scouring records to try to confirm whether Leeds and Trump ever sat next to each other in first class. As of now, the FAA cannot confirm her to have been on any passenger or crew manifest with Trump.
However, we can confirm that Jessica Leeds has been in a long-running property dispute with Donald Trump since at least 2007. Leeds, herself a millionaire, is quoted in the New York Daily News in 2007 complaining about Trump’s (then new) Rancho Palos Verdes Golf Course in California: “We can watch the whales go by, the pelicans go fishing, the kite surfers. It’s an idyllic life…and now Donald Trump comes along and takes that away.” Leeds is quoted in the article.
In yet another story, this one run by the Associated Press, Leeds complains of the trees on Trump’s golf courses.
Identifying herself as the “Vice President of the Portuguese Bend Club East Homeowners Association,” Leeds is quoted in 2007 as frustrated with the real estate developer: “This is a very tenuous situation,” she says of negotiations between her group and the Trump Organization.
In fact, Leeds’ complaints about Trump reached the City Council. Quoting the Huffington Post, which ran with the New York Times piece on sexual harassment claims leveled against the Republican nominee, Leeds continues her complaints. Primarily, she is angered at the relocation of trees and bushes (fauna) in the area.
In 2008, the Los Angeles Times ran with a similar story. Framing their piece as a random property dispute, the Times reported: “A Rancho Palos Verdes woman says the Donald Trump organization summarily ended a property dispute by sending a construction crew and bulldozers to rip down and relocate the fence in her backyard. The homeowner, Jessica Leeds…”
In summary, the dispute over whether or not Donald Trump groped the now 74-year-old woman has degenerated into a he said-she said. But with even the simplest online search, the New York Times could have put the controversy into context and offered a possible reason that Leeds would want to diss The Donald three decades after the alleged incident so upset her. The newspaper could easily have found that Leeds may or may not have ever been on an airplane with Trump, but she has a nearly ten-year-old beef with the real estate mogul over a property dispute.
We already know how the New York Times has openly declared its aggressive opposition to the candidacy of Donald Trump — going so far as to suspend the long-respected rules of good journalism in its effort to take down the GOP nominee.
By perpetrating a possible lie, the Times manipulation of serious sexual assault allegations to support the candidacy of Hillary Clinton and achieve its radical, leftist political agenda does a disservice to real victims of sexual assault. They are now forced to climb over an even higher bar to have their stories heard and justice served.
Typical of the left’s cynical whatever-it-takes approach to winning the political war — do lasting damage to the cause of the very “victims” they’re claiming to champion.
