Trump says accusations of sexual misconduct 'fabricated'

Trump has denied all allegations of misconduct, but Democrats are pressing on him to resign as they expel members of their own ranks accused of similar behavior. It said "the timing and absurdity of these false claims speak volumes".

The president has taken a hard line in defending himself and Roy Moore, the US Senate candidate in Alabama accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct.

The women, who first shared their stories before the November 2016 election, were holding a news conference later Monday to call for a congressional investigation into Trump's alleged behavior. She did not provide the list by late Monday.

After the downfall of media mogul Harvey Weinstein prompted a national discussion - and reckoning - numerous more the more than a dozen women who had previously come forward to accuse Trump of sexual improprieties felt anguish that the same standards of behavior did not seem to apply to the president.

"President Trump has committed assault according to these women", Gillibrand told CNN.

Over the weekend, a chorus of well-known Democratic senators called for Trump to resign over sexual-harassment allegations.

On Sunday, Megyn Kelly Today's official Twitter account revealed Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey, and Rachel Cooks - three of the at least 19 women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct - would appear live on Monday's program.

Israel says it destroys Hamas tunnel using new techniques
It now seems that there is a possibility to discover additional terror tunnels, which challenges Hamas from restraining itself. The discovery was made several weeks ago with the help of advanced technology, the IDF statement said.

The allegations come in light of the growing "Me Too" movement across America which has seen men from the very public worlds of entertainment, media and Government outed and often punished for sexual misconduct.

One of the accusers, Rachel Crooks, called the White House statement "laughable".

Democratic Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of OR called over the weekend for Trump to quit. The allegations dated from "long before [Trump] was elected president", said Sanders, adding that: "The people of this country, in a decisive election, supported President Trump".

Leeds said the accusations surfacing in the wake of the allegations against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein were evidence that some sexual predators were now being held accountable. The video shares the stories of 16 women who have come forward with their experiences of Trump allegedly assaulting or harassing them.

"He stands there as I'm handing him his table assignment and he says, 'I remember you".

Not only have several of Trump' s accusers re-emerged to make the same claims they did before the election, but there are increasing signs that the President won't be able to simply dismiss the claims this time around.

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