CBS reports that women who have publicly accused President Trump of sexual harassment and assault will hold a news conference this morning at 10:30 EST. The event is hosted by Brave New Films, which previously produced a video telling the stories of Trump’s accusers.
Trump has been accused of misconduct by at least 16 women and bragged about getting away with sexual assault on a tape that was released shortly before the election.
Here’s the press release from Brave New Films:
Three of the women also appeared on the “Today” show with Megyn Kelly this morning.
CBS asked U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley about Trump’s accusers yesterday. Her response:
Women who accuse anyone should be heard. They should be heard and they should be dealt with.
I think we heard from them prior to the election. And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up.
Meanwhile, Politico reports today that Trump has “complained privately that the avalanche of charges taking down prominent men is spinning out of control.”
