Trump accusers reiterate claims in 'Megyn Kelly' appearances for new documentary

Trump accusers reiterate claims in 'Megyn Kelly' appearances for new documentary

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.

Holvey was joined Monday by Jessica Leeds and Rachel Cooks, who also came forward previous year to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.

Mr. Trump had previously vowed to take legal action against the numerous women who have already leveled accusations of misconduct against him during the 2016 campaign.

Holvey, Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks detailed their interactions with Trump, which ranged from groping to forcible kissing and making lewd propositions, in an exclusive interview on "Megyn Kelly Today".

A Miss America contestant who accused President Trump of looking at her "like a piece of meat" in 2006 said Monday that his election was "heartbreaking".

Three years after the incident, Leeds said she ran into Trump when she was working at a fundraising gala in New York City.

For those who have accused Crooks of simply trying to take Trump down or get her 15 minutes of fame, she said that she never would want to be known for something awful like this that happened to her.

"These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eye witness accounts, were addressed at length" a year ago the statement claimed.

The appearances come one day after Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said anyone who claims they were victims of sexual misconduct should be heard, even if Trump is the alleged perpetrator. Kelly asked. "I wanted people to know what kind of a person that Trump really is".

"The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them", the White House said.


"He held onto my hand, and he kept kissing me", she said.

Holvey said that no other director of a pageant came backstage to ogle the contestants.

She said that she didn't make a big deal of it to her employer because she feared losing her job as her company, a development firm, did extensive business with the Trump Organization. "Kissing and groping, and groping and kissing", she said.

Trump and his administration have denied these claims repeatedly. I called my sister and said, 'I don't know what happened. "It hurt", she said.

"I'm automatically attracted to beautiful women - I just start kissing them, it's like a magnet", Trump told former host Billy Bush.

During the segment, the White House issued a statement to Kelly regarding the allegations against the president.

What happens next? The women are calling for Congress to conduct an ethics investigation of President Trump.

Crooks said the Trump tales span many states and years, yet all remain "eerily similar". You were that woman from that airplane. And I think we heard from them prior to the election.

More than simply airing out accusations on TV, Trump may also face a defamation lawsuit from one of his accusers.
