Michele Bachmann suggests Hillary Clinton's involvement in release of Trump tape

On Saturday, Michele Bachmann suggested that Hillary Clinton's campaign was somehow involved in the release of a 2005 tape in which Donald Trump can be heard making sexually inappropriate comments about women, notes CNN.

The former congresswoman and Trump supporter was a call-in guest on CNN; after she was asked about the controversy surrounding the Republican candidate, she responded, "The Clinton campaign had to change the conversation because she had a lot of really bad news this week. And so this 11-year-old bad boy locker room talk, this is how she wanted to do it. She's trying to tell the media what she wants them to focus on, the questions that she wants Anderson Cooper and people in the room to ask her on Sunday night, that's what this is really about because she had some very bad news."

Despite her claims, she reportedly admitted to Chris Matthews during a program on MSNBC that she did not have proof about Clinton's involvement in the tape.

Meanwhile, Trump released a video apology online, saying in part, "I've never said I'm a perfect person. Nor pretended to be someone that I'm not. I've said and done things I regret and the words released today on this more than a decade old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am. I said it. I was wrong and I apologize."
