Trump Accusers Call On Congress To Investigate Sexual Misconduct Claims

Donald J. Trump on Twitter:

A group of women, who have accused United States president Donald Trump of sexually inappropriate behavior on Monday, demanded that Congress open an investigation.

"No one is above the law", Representative Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) told Newsweek on Tuesday. Their opening came after the #MeToo movement began to spread to Capitol Hill.

The ranking member of the committee, Representative Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), is calling on Gowdy to consider the request for an investigation into the president more carefully than that earlier request, considering that members of Congress have resigned recently amid sexual misconduct allegations.

Three women have joined the ranks of accusers against US President Donald Trump.Mr Trump and the White House have denied the allegations. Jeff Merkley have also called on Mr Trump to resign. "I demand an investigation", McGillivray said. But the number of Democratic voices calling for a hearing is growing.

Democrat Chris Coons, a member of the Senate Judiciary panel, said it was unlikely the Republican-controlled Congress would act on the accusations, which were known before the November 2016 presidential election. "The American people, I think, spoke very loud and clear when they elected this president". "The Oversight Committee is charged with examining similar allegations against Executive Branch employees and the President. They deserve a bipartisan review, and I hope Chairman Gowdy will launch an investigation immediately". He's likely to do neither.

"And I think we heard from them before the election".

The president took to Twitter appearing to hit back against those accusations, writing, "Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russian Federation - so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don't know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!"

Meanwhile, the White House has denied allegations of sexual misconduct against the U.S. president by saying that it took place long before 2016 elections.

"This is about undermining the credibility of the person in the White House", McMahon said.

At least one of them knows a congressional investigation is a long shot, so she has her sights set on a bigger goal. Haley's comment also diverges from her Republican Party, which has been more than enthusiastic asking Democrat senators accused of sexual misconduct to resign while they protect Trump and Roy Moore, the former Alabama state judge who is the Republican nominee in the December 12 United States Senate special election in Alabama against Democratic nominee Doug Jones.

Booker also used Franken's resignation to criticize the president.

"I wanted people to know what kind of person that Trump really is", Leeds told Kelly about why she chose to come forward regarding an incident on a plane that took place more than 30 years ago as well as a derogatory name he had called her. "But it's important enough to me to bring this up and hope we can get some sort of change in our culture that will improve the situation going forward".
