Trump On Sexual Assault Accuser: 'Never Happened'

Trump On Sexual Assault Accuser: 'Never Happened'

Rachel Crooks, a secretary working for another company in Trump Tower, told The Washington Post Mr Trump repeatedly kissed her in an elevator just moments after she introduced herself.

She repeated her story to The Washington Post this week, which splashed her picture on the front page on Tuesday with the headline "Is anyone listening?"

The Washington newspaper The Hill reported in December that attorneys for some of Trump's accusers arranged for donors to pay legal, security and other expenses, including paying off one woman's mortgage.

"You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them".

She said she approached him with her hand out, and he grabbed it and started kissing her. The incident lasted about two minutes, according to Crooks.

Ex-Netanyahu spokesman arrested in Israeli corruption probe
Last week, police recommended that Netanyahu be indicted for fraud, breach of trust, and bribery in two other cases. The suspects, all close associates of Netanyahu, were first arrested on Sunday.

Rachel Crooks came forward in 2016 after Trump boasted to an Access Hollywood correspondent of aggressively fondling women in a leaked recording from 2005.

Ms Crooks has told her story many times - to The New York Times, to CNN, at political rallies and at a press conference - and her story has remained consistent throughout.

And yet Trump appeared to generically verify her story in the infamous Access Hollywood tapes when he told Billy Bush: "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women]". Many congressional Democrats have called the behavior alleged by Trump's accusers disqualifying for a president of the United States.

Meanwhile, Crooks, who is a candidate for state representative in OH, wrote in a tweet that she'd be happy to have the footage of the incident released, reiterating that the assault did not happen in the lobby, but rather in the hallway outside the 24th floor elevator bank.

The Washington Post cited emails Crooks allegedly sent on the day of the incident, including one to her mother in which she alluded to a "weird incident with Mr. Trump".

South Korea, US to hold postponed military drills "as planned": USFK
Forces Korea, which oversees the 28,500 servicemembers stationed in the South, also reiterated the drills will be held as planned. The US and South Korea announced on Tuesday that drills would resume after the Olympics .

President Trump targeted women who have accused him of sexual assault Tuesday, denying a claim that he forcibly kissed a woman in Trump Tower in 2006. She alleges that while she and Trump waited for an elevator, he held her hand and began kissing her against her will.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them".

"Please, by all means, share the footage from the hallway outside the 24th floor residential elevator bank on the morning of January 11, 2006", Rachel Crooks, who is running as a Democrat for the OH state legislature, tweeted.

'And when you're a star, they let you do it.

Crooks' accusations date to the same year Trump made those comments.
