Leigh Corfman, the first woman to come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, said in a new interview Monday that she feels a "weight's been lifted" after finally speaking out about how Moore allegedly preyed upon her when she was a teenager. "I've looked at his record- it's awful on crime. I can tell you, we do not need somebody that's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad with the Second Amendment". "And you know, you have to listen to him also".
"He denies it, look he denies it", Mr. Trump said.
"We'll have to let you know next week", he said before getting into a helicopter with First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron. So, I think there are question marks as to is this part of a, I hate to say, Washington conspiracy, or is it the truth?
McConnell and other establishment Republicans, such as National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman Cory Gardner, have called on Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore to drop out of the race due to allegations of sexual misconduct with minors.
Moore has denied all allegations against him.
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Monday that the President believes "the people of Alabama" have to decide Moore's fate. And by the way he is a totally denial. "Long afterward, I would learn that Kayla had, in fact, performed a special dance routine at Gadsden State years before", he wrote. He's run eight races, and this has never come up.
In the same breath, Trump praised women as "very special" and said he's "very happy" about the recent wave of sexual harassment allegations against powerful men in media, politics and showbiz.
Though he wouldn't say whether he finds Moore's denials convincing, the president also weighed in on the larger cultural moment for women in general, as several of the most powerful men in the US have been forced to account for their shoddy treatment of women.
The woman, Lindsay Menz, told CNN that while she posed for a picture with Franken at the 2010 Minnesota State Fair, he "pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear". "There's a lots of things that are coming out and I think that's good for society".
