Donald Trump needs to be held accountable for his actions.
On Monday, several women who’ve accused the president of sexual misconduct gathered together to speak out about their experiences and called for Congress to conduct an investigation into POTUS’ inappropriate behavior. In a press conference, hosted by Brave New Films, the president’s alleged victims demanded that the reality TV personality-turned-politician be held accountable for the misconduct he inflicted on them.
The three women — Samantha Holvey, Jessica Leeds, and Rachel Crooks — who appeared in person during the live stream also sat down with Megyn Kelly on Today Monday morning. One other accuser, Lisa Boyne, participated via the phone. Brave New Films chose to host the press conference after three separate senators suggested that Trump should resign.
One of the accusers, Miz Crooks, highlighted that sexual misconduct is not a partisan issue and called for Congress to “put aside party affiliations and investigate Trump’s history of sexual misconduct.” She noted that the Trumpster’s actions were that of “serial misconduct and perversion.”
It seems the group was inspired by the Me Too movement to once again vocalize their claims. They had previously spoken out last year, ahead of Trump’s election to the presidency. Accuser Miz Leeds added:
“I am hoping that this will come forward and produce enough pressure on Congress to address it more than just for their own members but to address it with the president.”
Holvey echoed her peers’ sentiments as she too called for a non-partisan investigation:
“They’ve investigated other Congress members so I think it only stands fair he be investigated as well… A non-partisan investigation is important not just for him but for anybody that has allegations against them, this isn’t a partisan issue, this is how women are treated everyday.”
While a different Trump accuser, Summer Zervos, has sued Donald for defamation, the women in the press conference said they’d leave Donnie’s fate up to the court of public opinion. Although the three ladies hope Trump will resign, they note that realistically their hopes will not come to fruition.
“I believe other folks have resigned so I think he should, I don’t think he ever will, but I think it’s the public that needs to be aware this is the type of person he is.”
In regards to how the ladies feel about Donald’s endorsement of Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore, they unanimously said they felt horrified and disgusted.
All three women were featured in Brave New Films’ video about the many assault allegations (at least 16) brought against the president. As we previously reported, the White House has already responded to this update on the scandal as they’ve called the women’s respective statements “false claims” and a “publicity tour.”
