Donald Trump Evades Inquiry of Sexual Harassment Allegations

Published

on

The White House led by Donald Trump on Monday evaded calls for a congressional investigation of allegations that Donald Trump sexually harassed women, saying the American people had lent their support in the matter by electing Trump as the president.

Asking Trump to resign, Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand echoed a similar demand made the previous day by two other Senate Democrats, while a group of 54  Congresswomen voiced their opinion for a probe against Donald Trump.

Three women demanded a national level investigation from the Congress of Trump’s behavior and misconduct. They claim that they were sexually harassed by Mr. Trump before he ran for president.

Donald Trump Tried to Grab and Kiss

The trio, Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks, recounted their allegations, which President Trump has denied, in a live interview with Megyn Kelly on the NBC News.

Ms. Kelly met Mr. Trump during the election when she asked him about the offensive language he had used against women while hosting a live televised debate. On Sunday, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley broke from the White House’s official line saying of the accusations against Mr. Trump: “Women who accuse anyone should be heard.

“I know that he was elected, but women should always feel comfortable coming forward. And we should all be willing to listen to them.” In a statement, the White House denied all the claims as “false”.

The statement read: “These false claims, totally disputed most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory.

According to Ms. Leeds claims, she was grabbed “like an octopus” on the pretext of lifting the armrest by the current president when she was seated next to him on a particular flight in the 80’s. Ms. Crooks told the same newspaper last October that, while she was a receptionist, Mr. Trump shook her hand, refused to let go, and kissed her on the lips.
