At a press conference, hosted by the documentary organization Brave New Films on Monday, it was announced that a group of more than a dozen women plans to demand Congress investigates their allegations of sexual harassment against President Donald Trump.
This will be the first time the women unite in their efforts to call for the probe and share details of their allegations against Trump, according to a press release.
Brave New Films released a documentary about the allegations against Trump in November.
The President has denied the reports, and the White House has said its official position is that the women are lying.
Sexual misconduct has emerged as a major topic nationwide, as prominent men in politics and entertainment have been accused of sexual harassment or abuse.
Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, actor Kevin Spacey, and comedian Louis CK are among the men who have been accused of sexual misconduct, while, during the past week, three lawmakers have resigned or announced their resignation over similar claims.
Trump-supporting Twitter users are accusing the women of a political “witch hunt,” while his critics think the “victims” should be believed.
