From CBC - December 4, 2017

Billy Bush saysit was indeed Donald Trump's voice captured on a 2005 Access Hollywoodtape talking about fame enabling him to grope and try to have sex with women.

"Of course he said it," the former Access Hollywoodand Todayshow personality said in an op-ed published Sunday in The New York Times.

The video shows Trump, who at the time was the star of The Apprentice,riding on an Access Hollywoodbus with then-host Bush. At one point, Trump describes trying to have sex with a married woman. He also brags about women letting him kiss and grab them because he is famous.

"When you are a star, they let you do it," Trump says. "You can do anything."

"Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act,"Bush said in the op-ed."He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real. We now know better."

The recording of the lewd conversation between Bush and Trump emerged during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump later said he never did any of the actions described on the tape, and dismissed his words as locker room talk.
