Jerry Falwell Jr.: ‘Establishment Republicans’ Intentionally Leaked Trump Tape

Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University and a supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, claimed in a radio interview that “establishment Republicans” intentionally leaked a video of the candidate making lewd remarks about women in an effort to torpedo Trump’s campaign.

Falwell argued during an interview with WABC-AM Host Rita Cosby on Sunday that the “video tape thing” was “planned” by Trump’s Republican detractors.

The evangelical leader also alleged that he’s hearing from “sources that I believe are reliable” that it “wasn’t a coincidence” the tape became public right before Trump was supposed to campaign with House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

“It conveniently gave Paul Ryan a way to disinvite Trump,” Falwell said.
