White House says it will provide list of eyewitness reports refuting Trump's accusers

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday promised to provide a list of eyewitness reports refuting the claims of roughly a dozen women who say President TrumpDonald TrumpGraham: 'I could not disagree more' with Trump support of Afghanistan troop withdrawal GOP believes Democrats handing them winning 2022 campaign Former GOP operative installed as NSA top lawyer resigns MORE sexually harassed them. 

"I can say that the president has directly responded and said that these allegations are false and that’s what I’m doing and relaying that information to you. In terms of the specific eyewitness accounts, there have been multiple reports, I’d be happy to provide them to you after the briefing," she said.

More than a dozen women came forward during the 2016 presidential campaign to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct; three of them appeared earlier Monday on “Megyn Kelly Today.” 


During the show, as the women recounted the alleged incidents involving Trump, Kelly read a statement from the White House.

The claims were “totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts,” the statement read.

“The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them,” said the statement that Kelly read.

The same three women who appeared on NBC earlier in the day — Samantha Holvey, Rachel Crooks and Jessica Leeds — also held a press conference Monday morning in which they called for Congress to investigate the allegations against Trump.
