Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Three women who've accused President Trump of sexually harassing or assaulting them before he came to the White House demanded a congressional investigation Monday, following a week in which lawmakers from both parties were forced into resignation amid harassment allegations. "People are being held accountable, except for our president," said Jessica Leeds, who said Trump tried to force himself on her, including reaching under her skirt, during a plane ride more than 30 years ago. Yet "his staff made a big point of calling us all liars," she said. More than a dozen women accused Trump of sexual misconduct during his presidential campaign last year.

Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks said the national discussion over sex harassment has felled powerful men across major industries including entertainment and on Capitol Hill.

Meantime Trump "has escaped his past unscathed" and "our stories seem to fall on deaf ears," said Crooks.

The women also appeared in an earlier interview with Megyn Kelly, prompting the White House to issue a statement saying Trump has denied all of the accusations and that the women were making "false claims."

For Trump, a 2005 tape from the show Access Hollywood, in which he is heard bragging about grabbing women in their privates, is the evidence many cite.

"Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., suggested Sunday that Trump should resign. "Here you have a president who has been accused by many women of assault, who says on a tape that he assaulted women," Sanders said on Meet the Press.

"He might want to think about doing the same." On Vice News, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said "The fact pattern on him is far more damning than the fact pattern on Al Franken."

This should be in Muller's purview and unless he gets Flynn to testify that Trump told him to lie to the FBI, this could be Trump's undoing.

The Republicans are ushering in a child molester into congress

Trump is beyond safe from any chance of investigation or impeachment.

Trump boasts about grabbing pus?

Moore literally grabbed a 14 year old by her pus. It's common knowledge. Everyone is aware he's a predator.

Forget the swamp. The Republican Party is a cesspool.

"Yeah, but there's a picture of Franken."

There's video of Trump doing 2 of the things Franken was accused of (squeezing a woman's waist, touching a woman's breast):

NEW..... NOT FAKE!....Trump Attacks Gillibrand and Blames Democrats for Women's Allegations

WASHINGTON -- President Trump forcefully entered the national debate about sexual harassment on Tuesday, again dismissing his own accusers as fabricating their stories and saying that a prominent Democratic senator, a woman, "would do anything" for campaign contributions and calling her a "lightweight."

The president's attacks came in early morning Twitter posts after several of the accusers had come forward on Monday to renew their charges that Mr. Trump had sexually assaulted them before he was president. His Twitter attack also came after the senator, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, had called for him to resign.

By inserting himself directly into the discussion, the president ensured that calls for revived scrutiny over the women's allegations would gain new energy and prominence.

For her part, Ms. Gillibrand was quick to fire back, saying she would not be silenced by a president whose comments she described as "a sexist smear."

"It was a sexist smear attempting to silence my voice, and I will not be silenced on this issue. Neither will the women who stood up to the president yesterday," she said.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for 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. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!
