Women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct seek congressional probe

The women, who first aired their stories before the November 2016 election, also held a news conference later Monday to call for a congressional investigation into Trump's alleged behaviour.

Three women have joined the ranks of accusers against US President Donald Trump.Mr Trump and the White House have denied the allegations.

"These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts", the statement said. The statement dismissed the allegations as part of a "publicity tour" and said they were driven by "political motives".

And aside from his own administration's claims that Trump has, in fact, been in the same room as at least some of the women, he has also been personally and professionally involved with others.

On Monday, some Democratic lawmakers began calling on Trump to resign because of the allegations, including New York Democratic Sen. And Samantha Holvey, who was crowned Miss North Carolina in 2006, once again spoke of a time when Trump had entered the backstage area of the pageant he ran and unexpectedly asked to personally inspect the young contestants, who were in various states of undress.

"President Trump has committed assault according to these women", Gillibrand told CNN. All of them urged the president to step down following the announced resignations of Senator Al Franken and Congressman John Conyers over sexual harassment allegations.

Three women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual assault will appear on Megyn Kelly's NBC show at 9 a.m. on Monday before they have a national press conference at 10:30.

The allegations come in light of the growing "Me Too" movement across America which has seen men from the very public worlds of entertainment, media and Government outed and often punished for sexual misconduct.

"I know that he was elected", she said.

Rachel Crooks said she worked in Trump Tower in her early 20s and said Trump kissed her when she introduced herself to him one day. "They are numerous. I've heard these women's testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking".

Since winning the White House, Trump has largely avoided the topic.

"It was just this silent groping going on". "And we should all be willing to listen to them".

"Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for [fellow New York Democratic Senator] Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office "begging" for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump".

But what the reemergence of Trump's accusers, the Haley comments and the overall culture at the moment seem likely to do is force Trump's hand to go beyond his original statements on his accusers.
