Two Republican senators claimed that President Donald Trump should be questioned about the recent rape allegations.

As IJR Blue reported, E. Jean Carroll came forward with allegations of rape against the president. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) claimed that she would like additional information, saying that both Carroll and Trump should be questioned.

“I think anybody that makes an accusation like that, they should come forward,” Ernst said to CNN. “But obviously there has to be some additional information. They need to interview her. They need to visit with him.”

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said that he wanted an “evaluation” but that he was not sure who would oversee it, “whether it’s Congress or whether it’s another setting, I’m not sure.”

“It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”

While he did not say whether he believed there should be an investigation, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) claimed that the truth would be difficult to obtain.

“I think anytime you have a situation like this where nobody knows exactly what the truth and exactly what the facts are, it’s hard to draw any hard-and-fast conclusions,” said Thune.

During a recent interview, Carroll claimed that she wanted to add her voice to the others who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

“With all the 16 women who have come forward, it’s the same — he denies it, he turns it around, he attacks, and he threatens,” Carroll said on CNN. “Then everybody forgets it, and then the next woman comes along. And I am sick of it.”

However, the president was adamant that Carroll was not telling the truth.

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK,” said Trump to The Hill.

Mitt Romney is crazy as Carroll! Just listen to her. Why haven’t her family or her doctors found help for her? The Kavanaugh investigation was a total witch hunt! Is that what Romney wants; a witch hunt?!?!?

Mitt, do you think that by denouncing this president enough times, they may draft you as a presidential candidate fill-in to run in his place? I voted for you before, but if that were the case, I would not vote for you . You are such a disappointment!

It’s He / She said, no witnesses despite a public place, and ancient history. Romney just trying to stir up trouble rather than doing his job. «  The devil has work for idle hands. » Try being a Senator, Mitt, instead of a disappointment!

Mitt, if she accused you should we believe her? I probably wouldn’t because if it were true she would have brought it up a long time ago. What is wrong with you and Ernst.

WHY did this supposed “rape victim” wait for more than 30 YEARS before remembering she was “raped”? Has she run out of money and decided Trump – the billionaire President – was an easy target?

Move on. No story here.
