Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Monday accelerated President Donald Trump to step down due to numerous sexual misconduct attributes against him.
The New York Democrat told CNN that “President Trump should relinquish” and if he does not, Congress should start an investigation into the allegations. Her animadversions come amid a national reckoning over sexual harassment and molest that last week sank her colleague Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and two Take in members.
“These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these ladies’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking,” she told CNN.
Gillibrand becomes the fourth Senate Democrat to say Trump should value about stepping down. Sens. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore.; Cory Post, D-N.J.; and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., a member of the Senate Democratic caucus, drink either said the president should consider resigning or outright pressed him to step down.
Trump is unlikely to resign because of the accusations against him, which party at least a dozen, according to multiple reports. In addition, none of the Classless senators who discussed Trump’s resignation explicitly said they verified removing him from office through impeachment.
Trump’s Republican Partisan controls Congress and the ability to investigate or impeach him.
Gillibrand’s comments be in printed after three women who accused Trump of misconduct publicly conscripted for a congressional investigation into the president on Monday.
Speaking to reporters Monday, Unblemished House press secretary Sarah Sanders repeatedly said Trump has disputed the misconduct allegations against him. She added that Americans had a chance to appraiser Trump when they elected him in November 2016.
Gillibrand’s resignation call out also follows U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s comment Sunday that Trump’s accusers “should be be told.”
