Trump’s Accusers to Demand Probe at Monday Press Conference

Several women who have accused President Trump of sexual harassment and assault will call for a congressional investigation into the allegations at a press conference Monday. A press release from Brave New Films late Sunday said the women will share firsthand accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The event will be streamed live at 10:30 a.m. ET by Brave New Films, which released a video last month detailing allegations against Trump. NBC News host Megyn Kelly is also due Monday to host three women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations made against him during his presidential campaign, but the issue has taken on new relevance in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday said all women accusing men of sexual misconduct “should be heard”—even if the accusations are leveled against the president. “Women who accuse anyone should be heard,” Haley said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “I know that he was elected, but you know, women should always feel comfortable coming forward. And we should all be willing to listen to them.”
