As Trump's accusers step up, Democrats call on him to resign

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand D-N.Y. answers a question about

Crooks, Holvey and Leeds, who claims Trump jumped on her and started pawing her whole the two were seated near each other on a plane, are the first to publicly renew their claims amidst a new, national reckoning with sexual assault.

Just hours later, at a press conference at the Lexington Hotel in New York, Holvey said that lawmakers should extend the same scrutiny to Trump they did to Al Franken, the Minnesota senator who faced an ethics investigation before he resigned his seat over claims of unwanted kissing and groping.

Frankel told ABC News that Democrats should take up an investigation of the allegations against Trump in the Oversight Committee - which has broad jurisdiction over the federal government as well as subpoena power - if the party retakes the House in 2018. "If they were willing to investigate Sen". That's the part that was missing from what Nikki Haley said and from what Sean Spicer said a few weeks ago.

"President Trump should resign", New York Sen.

On Twitter, Trump struck back - and seemingly accused Democrats of egging on the women who addressed reporters about the alleged harassment. The White House has continued to assert that all these women are lying - with Trump even beginning to privately promote a conspiracy theory that it wasn't him on the tape (it was).

"In an objective setting, without question, a person with this record would have entered the graveyard of political aspirations, never to return", Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist who accused Trump of forcibly kissing her outside an elevator in 2005, said Monday at an event with other victims.

"But we are not holding our president accountable for what he is and who he is", she said.

Meanwhile, Trump is not taking the news of a potential investigation lightly. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., calling it "grotesque".

Trump wants to shift NASA resources to exploring the moon and Mars
Mr Trump also said the program would lay the foundation for an eventual mission to Mars, although he did not give a date for this. In September, Trump nominated Representative Jim Bridenstine , a Republican from Oklahoma, to be the next NASA administrator.

"Congress is in the midst of a critical and long-overdue examination of allegations against its own Members-both before and after they were elected to Congress", Cummings said in a statement to Newsweek. "Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!"

"Those people that hate Trump will hate him more, those people that love Trump will think that this is business as usual, that this media is out to get him, that the Democrats are out to get him and it won't change their opinion", Uhlmann said.

Gillibrand responded on Twitter, saying: "You can not silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office".

In a press conference, Gillibrand referred to Trump's comment as "a sexist smear attempting to silence" her, adding, "I will not be silenced on this issue, neither will the women who stood up to the president yesterday, and neither will the millions of women who've been marching since the Women's March to stand up against policies they do not agree with".

"The American people are really grappling with this "Me Too" movement", Frankel said.

"These women are right", Wyden tweeted December 11. They - and we - are going to need it. "Moral values are not exclusively Republican, nor are they reserved only for Democrats", he says in his statement.

He also went on to talk about the importance of listening to women's stories and not being so quick to dismiss them.

It's time we take these women seriously. Among their ranks are his ex-wife Ivana, who once described her husband raping her in Trump Tower in a fit of rage after a botched scalp surgery.
