Alyssa Milano Calls on Congress To Investigate Trump’s Sexual Assault Allegations



Following the release of then candidate Trump’s Access Hollywood tapes, a number of women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct. The conversation concerning these accusers has mostly died down in the two years since Trump has been President.

Democrats, however, are now in control the House and can make calls to begin investigations. Actress turned activist, Alyssa Milano, took to her Twitter feed to request that Democratic Congresspeople do just that.

Milano shared a Business Insider profile on the 23 women who have made claims against the President. The actress wrote, “23 women have credibly accused Trump of sexual misconduct. Congress should open an investigation and hold hearings on all of the accusations immediately.”

Many of the women had appeared in beauty pageants that had involved Trump in the early 2000’s. The President had owned and operated the Miss USA Pageant from 1996 to 2015.

Trump’s attorney’s argued, “that, as president, he can’t be sued in state court and that his remarks about his accusers are political speech.” A panel of judges in Manhattan rejected the claim, writing, “We reject defendant President Trump’s argument that the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution prevents a New York State court — and every other state court in the country — from exercising its authority under its state constitution.”
Neither the White House or the President has commented on Milano’s tweet.
