Gillibrand calls on president to resign over misconduct allegations

Gillibrand calls on president to resign over misconduct allegations

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) on Monday afternoon called on President Donald Trump to resign as accusations of sexual misconduct against the President have seen renewed scrutiny.

Gillibrand is the third Democratic Senator to call for Trump's resignation. "These allegations are credible".

If Trump refuses to resign, Gillibrand told CNN that Congress should launch a sweeping investigation into the President, who stands accused of sexually harassing or assaulting almost two dozen women. And so Congress should have hearings, they should do their investigation.

If Trump doesn't resign immediately, Congress "should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable", Gillibrand said.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) also thinks it's a head-scratcher.




"This was serial misconduct and perversion on the part of Mr. Trump", said Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist for a company that had offices in Trump Tower who accused Trump of kissing her on the mouth without her consent in 2005.

"I think the point she's making is this very powerful moment in America's history", Gillibrand said of Haley's remarks.

"Al Franken felt it proper for him to resign".

Trump Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated Monday that the White House's position is that the women accusing the president are lying. Also Monday, a group of the women who have leveled charges against Trump called for a Congressional investigation.

During his 2016 campaign, he promised to sue his accusers.
