In Post-Weinstein Era, Trump Sexual Assault Accusers Await His Downfall

Later, when more than a dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct, including unwanted physical contact, he threatened to sue his accusers.

But the U.S. president appeared unwilling to pass up an opportunity to attack a Democrat who has been hyper-critical of his conduct as president. Some critics charged Trump's attack on Franken was hypocritical after his denials of his own sexual misconduct, as well as in the face of Trump holding his fire on Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama.

Roy Moore has been accused of trolling teenagers for sex by nine women, who could testify at Al Franken's Ethics hearing. But Chatty Cathy has remained conspicuously silent on the serious charges leveled against Roy Moore.

"For Trump and his press secretary to continue to push the false agenda that the women are liars and continue to so cavalierly defame private citizens is outrageous and improper", Stoynoff said.

President Trump lashed out on Twitter on Thursday night against Sen. Trump has denied these allegations.

Mocking Franken's name in a misspelling, the president wrote: "The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words". But, according to Bill Maher, there's a big different between someone like Franken and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (accused by nine women of sexual harassment and assault) and President Donald Trump (previously accused of similar behavior).

Meyers then showed various clips of reporters attempting to ask Republican congressmen about the accusations against Moore; in the case of Mo Brooks, he fled a reporter's questions while running down the stairs.

"I think that's a very clear distinction", she said. At the second presidential debate, days after the tape was released, he appeared with several women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual misdeeds decades ago. "I didn't think he'd be as bad as he turned out to be", she said of Trump.

"He's anxious about the conversation moving to his past accusers", the Republican familiar with the matter said, noting that the President believes his accusers were unfair and some of Moore's may be, too. Sanders said Trump does support the Republican National Committee's decision to pull its financial and field resources from the Alabama race.

Sanders did say, however, that a Senate investigation into the allegations against Franken were an "appropriate action".

In a statement Friday after BuzzFeed News published its story, Winston did not deny that his Uber account had been suspended, but called the groping accusation "false" and said that he believed Kate "was confused as to the number of passengers in the auto and who was sitting next to her".
