Sen. Merkley: Trump Must Resign Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

Trump and his administration have denied these claims repeatedly.

"Let's try round two", said Holvey on Monday, appearing on NBC's Today Show.

"The environment's different", Holvey said. "And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up".

The 56 representatives sent a letter Monday to Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy and Democrat Elijah Cummings of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Jeff Merkley have also called on Mr Trump to resign.

"President Trump should resign", said Gillibrand. "These allegations are credible; they are numerous". "And I think we heard from them prior to the election".

9NEWS political editor Chris Uhlmann, whose searing analysis of the US President earlier this year went viral, doubts this latest attack will lead to the impeachment of the leader of the free world. "Trump has grown increasingly angry in recent days that the accusations against him have resurfaced, telling associates that the charges are false and drawing parallels to the accusations facing Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore".

The press secretary was unable to provide any evidence to discredit the allegations, instead relying on Trump's denials.

"He was like an octopus", she said.

The aftermath of the sexual assault investigations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has seen powerful men getting toppled from their positions after several women have come forward. But, you know, women should always feel comfortable coming forward.

The complainants claimed that Trump kissed them and touched them against their will while he was a famous businessman, before deciding to enter politics. "And I think the time has come".

"I thought maybe he didn't mean to do it, but I was kind of making excuses", she added. That's the part that was missing from what Nikki Haley said and from what Sean Spicer said a few weeks ago. "And again, the American people knew this and voted for the president, and we feel like we're ready to move forward in that process". "You know when a gross guy at the bar is checking you out?"

In addition to yesterday's letter, there are now five senators calling for the president to resign over the sexual misconduct allegations: led by Sen.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Congress shouldn't investigate the allegations against Mr Trump.

Many of Trump's accusers, contrary to the statement, were not publicly contradicted by eyewitnesses.

"I am hoping this will produce enough pressure on Congress to address it more than just for their own members, but address it in the presidency".

A senior figure in the US Democratic party, Minnesota Senator Al Franken is accused of forcibly kissing radio personality Leeann Tweeden and groping her while she slept during a 2006 tour to Afghanistan to entertain US troops.

"We are private citizens and for us to put ourselves out there, to try to show America who this man is, and especially how he views women, for them to say, 'Meh, we don't care, ' it hurt".
