Trump Accusers Call for Congressional Probe Into Sexual Harassment Allegations

| DEC 11, 2017 | 4:50 PM

Following an appearance on “Megyn Kelly Today” on Monday, three of the more than a dozen women who've accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct called for a congressional investigation into their claims.

Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey, and Rachel Crooks have chosen to come forward again publicly in light of the wave of sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men, including Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, and Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who announced his resignation last week.

“It became apparent that in some areas, the accusations of sexual aggression were being taken seriously and people were being held accountable — except for our president,” Crooks said. “We’re at the position now where in some areas of our society, people are being held accountable for unwanted behavior, but we are not holding our president accountable for what he is and who he is?”

“If they were willing to investigate Sen. Franken, I think it’s only fair that they do the same for Trump,” she said. ”We shouldn’t let politicians get away with this."
