They're Baaaaack: Trump Accusers Call On Congress To Launch Ethics Investigation

Long before Rep. John Conyers and Sen. Al Franken bowed to pressure from their fellow Democrats and opted to leave their positions, a handful of conservatives were warning that the ostensibly altruistic motives of Nancy Pelosi and her fellow party leaders were, in fact, a ploy to try and force Republicans in Congress to turn on President Donald Trump.

After all, only weeks ago Pelosi took to the Sunday shows to defend Conyers, claiming he was an “icon” in the fight for women’s rights and minority rights. Of course, that was probably before the Democrats realized the political opportunity on their hands.

 

 

While some of these warnings were swiftly dismissed as conspiracy theorists, it looks like they, too, might ultimately be proven to be a conspiracy “fact.” To wit, as the Hill reports, three women who have accused President Trump of sexual harassment are calling on Congress to launch an investigation into the allegations against him.

As one of the women put it: "If they were willing to investigate Sen. [Al] Franken [D-Minn.], it’s only fair that they do the same for Trump,” said Rachel Crooks, one of the president’s accusers."

None of the women who appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show this morning raised new allegations against Trump. Instead, they’re reiterating allegations that were emphasized during the campaign – a clear sign that Democrats see this as their “moment” to go after Trump, and are grabbing the brass ring with both hands.

The women held a press conference Monday to demand that the president be held accountable for his actions...Crooks has accused the president of forcibly kissing her 12 years ago at Trump Tower, where she was a young receptionist.

 

Samantha Holvey, a former Miss USA contestant who says Trump walked into the dressing room to inspect the women, said the president should step down over the allegations.

 

“Other folks have resigned. I think he should. I don’t think he ever will,” she said at the news conference arranged by Brave New Films, a progressive nonprofit group.

 

The three women appeared earlier Monday morning on NBC News’s “Megyn Kelly Today.”

 

The women are trying to return the spotlight to Trump’s alleged misconduct at a time when other politicians, media figures, entertainment executives and businessmen have been forced to leave their jobs over accusations of sexual harassment or assault.

 

The group, which also included Jessica Leeds, who said Trump groped and kissed her on an airplane, did not make any new allegations against the president.

During the interview, the women expressed hope that the shifting cultural mores might increase the likelihood that Republicans in Congress will kowtow to their Democratic rivals in the hopes of retaining the moral high ground. The possibility that Republican senate candidate Roy Moore might win tomorrow’s special election in Alabama has only served to further emboldened them – especially after Richard Shelby, Alabama’s senior senator, said this weekend that he wouldn’t vote for Moore, and that an ethics investigated might be ordered should he win. Polls show Moore neck-and-neck with Democratic rival Doug Jones. Trump, of course, has backed Moore, saying he believes Moore’s “total denial” of claims that he engaged in inappropriate sexual contact with high school girls when he was an assistance district attorney forty years ago.  

 

 

Jessica Leeds, who once accused Trump of forcibly kissing her on an airplane, reiterated that the national reckoning with sexual harassment in the workplace just might be able to take down Trump.

“So we're at the position now where in some areas of our society, people are being held accountable for unwanted behavior,” Jessica Leeds said. “But we are not holding our president accountable for what he is and who he is.”

As the Hill pointed out, at least 16 women during the 2016 campaign accused Trump of sexually harassing them. Trump has denied all of the allegations and the White House has said its official position is that all the women were lying.

“These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory,” a White House spokesperson said Monday.

The White House said the women were motivated by politics in trying to revive their accusations against Trump.

“The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them," said the spokesperson, who declined to be named.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has cut ties with Moore, and some GOP senators say he should be expelled if he wins, but Trump is backing him, saying that he doesn’t want the seat to be held by a Democrat.

“It’s really horrifying and it’s confusing because you would think that the good people of Alabama could see through this, but we’ve gotten so polarized with the politics they want to keep a Republican seat even though it’s a pedophile,” Leeds said.

But as Democrats and some Republicans set their sights on Trump once again by bringing up Trump’s accusers and, of course, the infamous Access Hollywood tape that many believed should’ve sunk the Trump campaign, it’s worth remembering that many Democrats initially defended not only Conyers and Franken, but also former President Bill Clinton, who has faced accusations of sexual assault and harassment for years.

In other words, Democrats were willing to ignore these issues when it was politically convenient. But now that they see an opening, they’re more than willing to throw a few of their own under the bus if it might allow them to take down Trump.

Any woman who, instead of acting when evil is done to them, waits 10-20 years until that man has achieved some measure of success to lay down accusations of misconduct is

A FUCKING COWARD, and should be questioned intensely as to their motives.

Imagine if a man failed to act when they saw their wife being raped, and instead waited 10 years until that man was rich before accusing him. Wouldn't you question his motives?

Same goes for those with a vagina.

One accuser claimed Trumps assault was to brush her cheek with his fingers, which in saner times was an act of endearment, and commented how beautiful she was. Maybe the next time someone gives me a hug or shakes my hand I'll have them arrested.One thing I love about the locker room sex tape was all the dumb asses, male and female, coming out of the woodwork claiming they never do that kind of thing and don't know anyone that does either. On the real planet earth 99% of the men and women do talk like that in private with their buds. Amy Shumers whole act is built on raunch and sex and she had the gall to stomp on Trump. From what I've seen, watching comedians and in real life, women are far worse than men in locker room raunch.

Willy,

It's a Global Massive Sex Compromised Intelligence Operation ring run out of the Deep State headquartered in Israel by the ZioNeoConFascist.?

Donald Trump has been on Epstein's "Lolita Express" and has had Jeffrey on his private jet. Trump has publicly named Epstein "a very good friend" and that they have something in common "We both like our ladies on the younger side."

This "sting" is only to arrest those that are not on the inside of the much larger circle of goats. Trump is not going to put an and to this practice. he is only going to put an end to unapproved operations. The FBI collects blackmail data on all the puppets that are in positions of power. That is how they are able to keep secrets and control politicians.

This story makes me sick, because it has more to do with desensitizing people to lawless practices of privacy invasion, than it does to actually putting a dent in the much larger scale problem that Trump himself is deeply entrenched in.

Notice how none of the high level Washington politicians have been arrested, nor the ambassadors of the largest nations in the world. This whole thing is a diversion.

The manifest you speak of is shown in this Brendan O’Conell video at the 19:00 min mark.

Its about damn time we started getting serious about these disgusting, abusive, misogynistic perverts and start bringing them to justice- along with all of their crooked supporters and apologists!! Lets get the low-hanging fruit/documented cases out of the way first and celebrate some wins: How about Bill Clinton inserting cigars into Monica Lewinsky's vagina wile his wife and daughter were in the same house? Lets get that bastard and his enablers into the spotlight! Megyn, Rachel- your move...

I don't give a shit what any of these idiots accuse Trump of doing, he's staying, period. It's such an obvious fucking ploy that no one is going to buy this shit. We all watched them set this shit up the past couple of weeks, guilty until proven innocent, no due process, etc. Fucking democrats are the biggest assholes ever for pulling this crap. Just unreal.

I remember what was said very clearly. Trump said, "And they let you do it."

If adult women let you do something, it's not sexual assault. It's not even molestation. Their body, their choice. If they choose to not act and instead welcome a mans hand based on that mans wealth or fame, that is female stupidity, but it is not assault.

Their sick, Twisted, Psychopathic, Sociopathic Logic dictates that, if they can demonize & ostracize Trump to Clinton’s level of sadistic exploits. Then, they’ll be somehow vindicated.

Socially Engineering & attempting to Gas Light the masses into thinking that Sick, Twisted, sadistic behavior as acceptable.

Pedofilia included.
