Nearly two dozen women came out before the 2016 election to accuse Donald Trump of various types of sexual misconduct. Three of those women went on Megyn Kelly’s show to tell their story.
Andrea Ruth over at RedState expounded on this development:
Megyn Kelly Interviewed Three of Trump’s Alleged Sexual Harassment Victims, Here’s What They Had to Say
Megyn Kelly interviewed three of the women with allegations of sexual harassment and other misconduct on her NBC morning show Monday. Rachel Cooks, Jessica Leeds and Samantha Holvey each described their encounters with Trump that left them “confused” and feeling “awful.”
The worst of the three allegations is also the oldest and stems back to a flight in which Jessica Leeds says she sat next to Trump in the 1970’s. Following the meal service, Leeds said Trump began to grope her and kiss her, but when his hand started going up her skirt she managed to get away.
Will this turn into anything? There’s no way to know at this point, but pressure appears to be mounting for something to happen. Some accusers are calling on Congress to investigate the President.
The women — Jessica Leeds, Rachel Crooks, and Samantha Holvey — appeared at a press conference in New York City on Monday to detail their experiences with Trump, all of which occurred before he was elected president but spanned decades.
“They’ve investigated other Congress members, so I think it only stands fair that he be investigated as well, and I think also a nonpartisan investigation is very important, not just for him but for anybody that has allegations against them,” Holvey said. “This isn’t a partisan issue. This is how women are treated every day.”
If the current trend of investigating and punishing powerful men accused of sexual misconduct holds for the President as well, it’s likely we’ll keep hearing about this leading up to the midterm elections.
