Oprah gives tape of Puzder’s abuse allegations

Senators in both parties have viewed an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in which President Donald Trump’s Labor Secretary nominee Andrew Puzder’s former wife leveled allegations of physical abuse against him, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The decades-old video, which is not easily found, has been provided by the Oprah Winfrey Network, those sources said. The video has been provided to senators in a Capitol Hill office building, according to people who have seen it.

“I’ve arranged for senators on the committee to see that … I thought that was a reasonable request. No reason not to see it,” said HELP Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.). “That happened 27 years ago. His former wife has said it was all not true. She has reiterated that in a heartfelt letter to members of the committee and has been willing to talk to members of the committee so I don’t think that’s an issue. “

The episode is called “High-Class Battered Women,” according to a source familiar with the matter. It aired in March, 1990.

Alexander said he supports Puzder’s nomination. But Patty Murray (D-Wash.), the top Democrat on the HELP Committee that will vote on Puzder’s nomination, said she was “deeply troubled” by the video.

“It was important for us to know all of the information about any candidate that comes before us,” Murray said in an interview.

Last month POLITICO reported that Puzder’s former wife, Lisa Fierstein, appeared in disguise on Oprah to discuss her abuse allegations, which she has since retracted, most recently in a letter to the Senate HELP Committee.

    Oprah is nothing but a talk show host that has made millions off the backs of cry babies.
    She does have a right to her opinion, however so do I and I believe that she Oprah is way over rated.
    I really don’t give a Damn, what opinion she has one way or another.
    it is in fact just her opinion not the truth necessarily, maybe a over stretched truth as many on TV an the main street news.
    It is what it is, the illegal Aliens deliberately destroying this country. They have no intention of assimilating into our way of life, but they bring there culture into a free society just to change us. Not going to happen.

    People of America that voted President Trump into office to fix Obama’s deliberate destruction of this Country, using the Political arena of the Democrat Party of Socialist,Progressive to the far far left and admitted Communist .

    You need to stand up and flood the streets in Protest like the thugs and criminals that are leaking information.
    It is not only Criminal but in my opinion it is TREASON and it is not just by the ( SPOOKS (intelligent sector. But the SHADOW GOVERNMENT OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA stirring the pot, in my belief he Obama is a Communist / Muslim, liar and a out and out Dictator trying to destroy us and our Country from within.
    Obama appears to either want to retake the White House or put some kind of puppet into the White House, that he and Soros as well as others behind the scenes, will be able to rule the Legal Citizens and turn our Country into a WORLD COUNTRY. We can’t let this happen.
    Every legal loving citizen in each State must rise up and stop this deliberate try at a take over of our country, before it is to late.
    Do not wait because the illegal criminal aliens and the professional hired thugs are already on the march and it may be just to late to turn this around. Once this country is gone it is gone forever there is no turning back.
    STAND UP AMERICANS STOP THE TAKE OVER OF OUR COUNTRY.
    Just one person’s opinion !!!!
