Trump lashes out at accusers, denying alleged Trump Tower sexual harassment incident

Rachel Crooks told the Washington Post on Monday that Trump had kissed her without her consent in Trump Tower in 2006, an experience she has reported multiple times before.

But this is nothing new.

In Tuesday's Washington Post story, she offered as evidence of the encounter in the form of an email she sent her mom later that day on January 11, 2006.

Political hopeful and candidate for the OH state legislature Rachel Crooks, who has accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, called on Trump to release video footage from the day the alleged incident occurred outside an office at Trump Tower in New York City.

"Never happened! Who would do this in a public space with live security cameras running", Trump said in a tweet on Tuesday. Why doesn't @washingtonpost report the story of the women taking money to make up stories about me? He wouldn't let go of my hand, and then he went right in and started kissing me on the lips'.

But that didn't prevent him from winning the election.

Crooks also told the Washington Post that she is running for office in part so she can speak out and share her story more widely with Ohio's voters.

We'll see in November if enough voters agree to upset the status quo in Washington.

He went on to describe the report as "fake news" and claim that the kiss "never happened!".

The hostess shook her head and then reached for Crooks's hand.

Trump denied the incident Tuesday after a Washington Post feature about Crooks detailed her efforts to draw attention to serial accusations of sexual harassment and assault against Trump. "Nobody has more respect for women than me!"

Crooks is among 14 women who have accused Mr. Trump of past inappropriate behavior.

Crooks says that in 2006, when she was a 22-year-old receptionist working for an investment firm located in Trump Tower, she introduced herself to the then 59-year-old real estate tycoon as he waited for an elevator outside her office.

In another tweet, Trump questioned the motives of the accusers.

The President angrily refuted her latest claims on Wednesday morning, which allege he forced himself on her and kissed her on the 24th floor of Trump Tower in 2006. I don't need a lawsuit.

"Trump should not be immune to this, he should be held accountable", she told Inside Edition as to why she came forward. "What will it take to get a response?"
