These Are the Women Who Have Accused President Trump of Sexu
Writer E. Jean Carroll says Donald Trump assaulted her in a dressing room in the late 1990s, making her at least the 19th woman to allege sexual misconduct by the president.
In a cover story for New York magazine, Carroll, the author of five books known for her advice column in Elle, detailed violent encounters with six men, including Trump and former CBS chairman Les Moonves. The article includes a photo that appears to show Trump and Carroll together with their then-spouses at an NBC party in 1987.
In a statement, Trump said #8220there is zero evidence#8221 for the accusation, adding that he#8217s #8220never met#8221 Carroll.
The allegation was the latest mdash and most serious mdash accusation against Trump of sexual misconduct in the past. Since he launched his campaign, other women have come forward to say that Trump came into women#8217s dressing rooms, kissed them without consent and groped them.
While dozens of other men have lost or left their jobs over alleged sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, including Democratic Sen. Al Franken and Rep. John Conyers, some of Trumprsquos accusers have said that theyrsquore frustrated their allegations havenrsquot had the same effect on the President.
These are the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct on the record, in chronological order from when their accusations surfaced. 1. Jill Harth
Years of alleged incidents: 1992-1993
Allegations: Harth, a makeup artist, filed a lawsuit in 1997 that claimed Trump repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances toward her. She told The Guardian in a July 20, 2016 article that he groped her under a table at a dinner with beauty pageant contestants in 1992. In January 1993, she told The Guardian, he #8220pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again#8221 in one of his children#8217s rooms at Mar-a-Lago.
Harth dropped her lawsuit weeks later after her then-romantic partner George Houraney settled a separate business lawsuit with Trump.
Trump#8217s response: Trump has denied the allegation. Michael Cohen, then-special counsel to Trump, told The Guardian at the time: #8220It is disheartening that one has to dignify a response to the below absurd query. Mr Trump denies each and every statement made by Ms. Harth as these 24-year-old allegations lack any merit or veracity.#8221 2. Bridget Sullivan
Year of alleged incident: 2000
Allegations: Sullivan, a former Miss New Hampshire and runner-up for Miss USA 2000, told BuzzFeed News for a May 18, 2016 story that Trump would hug #8220you just a little low on your back#8221 and that he once walked through dressing rooms while many contestants were undressed.
