Should President Trump be investigated for sexual assault?
According to the New York Times, at least 30 high-profile men have been accused of sexual misconduct in the weeks since the Harvey Weinstien story broke, and for the first time, accusers are being believed. While many are happy to see progress being made on this front, some wonder why President Trump, who has been accused of harassment and assault by 16 women, has yet to be investigated.
It's absolutely stunning to realize that the sitting president of the United States, Donald Trump, continues to evade any consequences for the numerous accusations of sexual assault and sexual harassment made against him by women who had nothing to gain by going public. His press secretary continues cheerfully deflecting questions by suggesting that Trump's accusers, all 16 of them, are liars.
If Congress holds an "ethics investigation" for Al Franken, as some Dem leaders propose, comprehensive inquiries into Donald Trump and Roy Moore's many sexual misconduct allegations should be held as well. Americans deserve a complete picture, not a Benghazi style witch-hunt.
