Footage shows Trump with some accusers after he claimed he ‘never met’ women
Videos and photos showing President Trump with some of the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct are resurfacing after Trump in a tweet Tuesday said his accusers are “women who I don’t know and/or have never met.”
“Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia — so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!” Trump tweeted Tuesday.
People magazine published a photo later in the day showing Trump standing alongside Natasha Stoynoff, a former foreign correspondent for the magazine, while at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in 2005. People said that the photo was taken the same day that Stoynoff, in 2016, accused Trump of forcibly kissing her.
Another photo surfaced following Trump’s tweet Tuesday showing him with another accuser, Jill Harth.
Harth, who did business with Trump and later dated him, last year accused him of groping her in the early 1990s. According to a New York Times column published last year, Harth filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Trump in 1997, but withdrew it when settling a separate lawsuit with Trump.

Another high-profile Trump accuser, Summer Zervos, was a contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” which Trump hosted. The woman, who accused Trump of groping her in 2007, is seen in video sitting across a boardroom table from Trump on the show.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday afternoon that Trump’s tweet earlier in the day was referring specifically to three other women who held a press conference the previous day about their accusations against Trump.
Rachel Crooks, Samantha Holvey and Jessica Leeds called on Congress to investigate the claims against Trump at the Monday news conference.
Nearly 60 Democratic women in Congress also called on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee earlier this week to open an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump.
In a letter, 59 members of the Democratic Women’s Working Group ask Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to open an investigation into the matter after more than a dozen women have “publicly accused the President of sexual misconduct.”
