Falwell Jr.: Trump Has 'Email Evidence' Disproving Sexual Assault Claims
Jerry Falwell Jr., the high-profile evangelical leader and president of Liberty University, said today that Donald Trump has "email evidence" to disprove sexual assault allegations reported last night by The New York Times.
Falwell said he spoke to Trump last night, describing the GOP candidate as "beside himself" and in disbelief that the media was running with the story.
"He was telling me all the evidence he has - email evidence - that these accusations from these ladies are untrue completely," Falwell said on America's Newsroom.
He was also asked about how the new allegations and the release of a vulgar tape that showed Trump boasting in 2005 about grabbing women "by the p****" might affect Evangelical voters.
Falwell said he believes Evangelicals "understand that Christianity is about forgiveness, it's about repentance."
"They've seen the change in Donald Trump. I've seen it personally. He's not the same person he was one, two, three, four, five years ago. He has learned so much from the people. Since he's become a politician, he's seen the suffering of the American people and it's positively influenced him," said Falwell.
Meanwhile, students at Liberty are breaking with Falwell Jr. over his support for Trump.
"We must make clear to the world that while everyone is a sinner and everyone can be forgiven, a man who constantly and proudly speaks evil does not deserve our support for the nation’s highest office," the students wrote in a letter.
Falwell also discussed with Martha MacCallum the recent emails, released by WikiLeaks, that show Clinton aides mocking the Catholic Church and Evangelical Christianity.
