The White House dismissed a new attempt to revisit accusations from three women that accused Donald Trump of harassment during the presidential campaign.
NBC’s Megyn Kelly featured an interview with three Donald Trump accusers prior to a press conference by Brave New Films, a leftist company releasing a documentary of the accusers.
A White House spokesperson said:
These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory. 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 three accusers — Rachel Crooks, Samantha Holvey, and Jessica Leeds did not make any new accusations against Trump, but appeared heartened that the country was now taking harassment of women seriously.
“For us to put ourselves out there to try and show America who this man is and especially how he views women, and for them to say, ‘Meh, we don’t care’ — it hurt,” Holvey said during the interview with Kelly, calling it “heartbreaking.”
“So now it’s just like, alright, let’s try round two. The environment’s different. Let’s try again,” she continued.
Holvey, who competed in the Trump led beauty pageant said that Trump “personally inspected each woman” prior to the pageant. Leeds accused Trump of groping her breasts and trying to put his hand up her skirt over 30 years ago. Crooks accused Trump of forcibly kissing her outside of an elevator.
Crooks called for Congress to investigate Trump’s actions.
“I think if they were willing to investigate Sen. Franken it’s only fair that they do the same for Trump,” she said during the press conference.
During the press conference, one reporter asked the accusers what they thought about Trump’s endorsement of Roy Moore.
“I think the endorsement is disgusting. Absolutely disgusting,” Holvey replied when asked about Moore.
