GOP/SEX ABUSE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WOMEN: “Two Republican senators said Tuesday [6-25-19] the rape allegation made against President Donald Trump by writer E. Jean Carroll should be explored to determine the veracity of the allegation against the President — even as many Senate Republicans sidestepped questions over the matter and defended Trump. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa said both Trump and Carroll should be questioned about the alleged assault…Many other Republican senators questioned by CNN in the Capitol said they were unaware of the allegations revealed in a book by Carroll and first made public by a New York Magazine story of the account that came out late last week, or the press coverage since, including a lengthy interview on CNN’s ‘New Day’ Monday [6-24-19] when Carroll spoke in graphic detail about the alleged incident 23 years ago in a fitting room of a Bergdorf Goodman department store in New York. Trump has denied the allegations, resurrecting an old defense in telling The Hill that ‘I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?’”
