Surprise! Gillibrand Calls for Trump's Resignation As His Female Accusers Reappear

Impatient to get President Trump out of the office to which the American people elected him a year ago, media liberals on Monday re-introduced some of the women who have accused Trump of harassing them sexually years ago.

The women first spoke to Megyn Kelly on her cable show, then they held a news conference organized by a group called Brave New Films, which produces liberal propaganda on issues such as "justice," "inequality" and "gun violence."

The re-emergence of Trump's female accusers fits neatly into the script written by Democrats, including Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), who said after the complainants' news conference that President Trump simply must resign.

Gillibrand made her call for Trump to resign on CNN, one of the anti-Trump cable networks, which heralded Gillibrand's comments as an "exclusive."

"President Trump should resign," Gillibrand told CNN:

"These allegations are credible, they are numerous," she said. "I've heard these women's testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position. Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something, you know, you really can't hold your breath for. And so Congress should have hearings, they should do their investigation, they should have appropriate investigations of his behavoior, and hold him accountable."

(It should be noted that impatient Democrats didn't wait for Congress to do an "appropriate investigation" into Sen. Al Franken's behavior, although Franken said he would welcome an investigation by the ethics committee.)

Gillibrand also tweeted her call for Trump to resign.

It's no coincidence that Gillibrand was the first Senate Democrat to demand the resignation of her fellow Democrat Franken. Because how could she demand Trump's resignation if she didn't demand Franken's first?

President Trump called out the "fake news" in his first tweet on Tuesday: "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's female accusers were among the topics at the White House press briefing on Friday, as spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders fielded questions she's answered before.

Asked for her "specific reaction" to the call for a congressional investigation into Trump, Sanders replied:

"Look, the president has addressed these accusations directly and denied all of these allegations. And this took place long before he was elected to be president. And the people of this country, at a decisive election, supported President Trump, and we feel like these allegations have been answered through that process."

Sanders said the president "thinks it's a good thing that women (in general) are coming forward," but Sanders also said Trump "feels strongly that a mere allegation" is not sufficient without evidence to back it up.

One biased-against-Trump reporter insisted that Sanders answer her question about Trump's accusers, "because this is spinning and it's focused on him now and--"

Sanders interrupted, noting that Trump has already addressed the issue directly with the American people.

The reporter persisted: "But will he -- it's coming up new and afresh and more people are now speaking out. Will...the president address the nation on this? This is a huge issue, Sarah," the reporter insisted.

As Trump himself noted, that other huge issue -- the special counsel's investigation into the Trump campaign's possible coordination with Russia -- so far has produced no clear evidence implicating the president, which seems to be the point of the investigation.

So cue the Trump accusers...
