Campaign-Arranged Interview Is 'Evidence' Claimed By Pence

The Trump campaign Friday evening pointed to an interview published in the New York Post which was set up by the campaign as the "evidence" it claimed rebuts the claim of a woman who recently accused the GOP nominee of groping her on a flight.

In the article, British man Anthony Gilberthorpe says he was sitting across the aisle from Jessica Leeds on the flight in the early 1980s, and didn't see Trump do anything inappropriate.

Leeds was one of two women who told the New York Times about Trump's alleged inappropriate sexual behavior in the past. Since then others have come forward as well.

Gilberthorpe told the Post he couldn't offer any evidence but claimed he has "good photographic memory." He told the paper, "What she said about Trump is wrong."

Trump's running mate Mike Pence said earlier Friday that evidence would come out by the end of the day that would disprove the allegations.

A campaign aide told NBC News that evidence was the New York Post story but added there's "more to come."
