Launch an investigation into claims of sexual assault against Donald J. Trump
We request that Congress and the Justice Department open an investigation into the sexual harassment and assault accusations against Donald Trump.
Why is this important?
Now, twenty-two women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment or assault against Donald Trump.
Most recently, a renowned columnist, E. Jean Carroll has come forward and shared her own account of sexually inappropriate behavior from Donald Trump in the 90s. According to E. Jean, Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in the fitting room of Bergdorf Goodman. In her own words, "The minute he closed the door — boom — he threw me against the wall and tried to kiss me. I fought," she said. "It was shocking. It was against my will."
As is expected, Donald Trump has denied any such allegations, but how can we trust a man that has been caught on video gloating about grabbing women by their private parts?
E. Jean Carroll is the 22nd woman to come forward and describe her own experiences of sexually inappropriate behavior from the sitting president. It is long past time to just listen to women. Action needs to be taken by those in power.
The Justice Department, Congress, and NY Attorney General's Office need to open up an investigation looking into the sexual assault and harassment allegations against Donald Trump.
**This petition was launched in November 2017 but has been updated as women have come forward with new allegations.
