NBC Insider: “Trump was leading in the polls, so the tape was leaked to derail his bid”

Gee, a network news outlet conspiring to destroy a GOP candidate? Imagine that.

NBC execs are rumored to have leaked the despicable Donald Trump “grab ’em by the p - - - y” tape to the Washington Post in a bid to influence the presidential race, sources tell Page Six.

But NBC News is also holding back a potentially damaging tape of Hillary Clinton.

Bill Clinton’s rape accuser, Juanita Broaddrick, claimed during a 1999 “Dateline” interview that Bill allegedly forcibly had sex with her while he was governor of Arkansas.

Broaddrick then described how she was at an event weeks after the alleged rape, and Hillary made a beeline for her. She claims Hillary had grabbed her hand and thanked her for “everything you do for Bill.” Broaddrick added that when she tried to pull away, Hillary looked her in the eye and firmly repeated the same line, “which she assumed was a threat. Hillary wanted her to keep her silence.”

The NBC insider said Broaddrick’s account of the alleged rape was aired in 1999, but not the section where she claimed Hillary threatened her. The head of NBC News at the time was Andy Lack, who is now back in the same role.

Fast forward to this month, when an NBC “Access Hollywood” recording of Trump making vile comments about women with Billy Bush was leaked by someone in NBC to WaPo.

We’re told “Access” had planned to air the tape ahead of the Oct. 9 debate, but prevaricated, causing internal NBC News concerns and an eventual decision to leak the tape to antagonize The Donald at the debate. Plus, the leak allowed NBC News to sidestep concerns at legal about the ethics of airing a tape that was recorded without Trump’s consent.

According to an NBC insider, “Trump was leading in the polls, so the tape was leaked to derail his bid.”

Meanwhile, Washington Post clown Chris Cilizza says the media would never choose sides. OK, champ:


Perhaps we could ask the “reporters” who had dinner at John Podesta’s about their impartiality.

Here is the current RSVP list to the Thursday Night (4/9) dinner at Podesta’s. As a reminder, this is with the 25 reporters more closely following HRC (aka the future bus).
