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 “pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again” in one of his children’s 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’s response: Trump has denied the allegation. Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, told The Guardian at the time: “It 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.”

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 “you just a little low on your back” and that he once walked through dressing rooms while many contestants were undressed.

Trump’s response: Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks told BuzzFeed News that the stories mentioned in the article are “totally false.”

3. Cassandra Searles

Year of alleged incident: 2013

Allegations: Searles, Miss Washington 2013, wrote in a June 2016 Facebook post: “Do y’all remember that one time we had to do our on stage introductions, but this one guy treated us like cattle and made us do it again because we didn’t look him in the eyes? Do you also remember when he then proceeded to have us lined up so he could get a closer look at his property? Oh I forgot to mention that guy will be in the running to become the next President of the United States. I love the idea of having a misogynist as the President.”


She added in a comment, according to Rolling Stone: “He probably doesn’t want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room.”

Trump’s response: Trump has denied all allegations, but hasn’t commented on the specifics of Searles’ accusation.

Year of alleged incident: 2001

Allegations: Another Trump accuser, Dixon, a former Miss Arizona, told a Los Angeles CBS affiliate for an Oct. 11, 2016 story that Trump came into the dressing room at the 2001 Miss USA pageant while the women were “half naked changing in our bikinis. … There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything.” Dixon was 18 at the time.

In a 2005 interview with Howard Stern, unearthed by CNN during the campaign, Trump said that he went backstage during his pageants. “I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump told Stern. “You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good.”


Trump’s response: The campaign said in a statement to the Washington Post: “These accusations have no merit and have already been disproven by many other individuals who were present. When you see questionable attacks like this magically put out there in the final month of a presidential campaign, you have to ask yourself what the political motivations are and why the media is pushing it.”

Year of alleged incident: 2005

Allegations: Trump accuser Crooks told the New York Times in an Oct. 12, 2016 story that Trump kissed her without her consent while she was working as a receptionist for the Bayrock Group, which had an office inside Trump Tower. Crooks, who was 22 at the time, said that she encountered Trump outside an elevator, where she introduced herself. She said he began kissing her cheeks and then kissed her on the mouth. “It was so inappropriate,” Crooks told the Times.

Response: Trump told the Times: “None of this ever took place.”

7. Mindy McGillivray
Year of alleged incident: 2003

Allegations: McGillivray told the Palm Beach Post in an Oct. 12, 2016 story that Trump groped her behind at Mar-a-Lago. She was 23 at the time. She said that he had flirted with her at his Florida estate two years earlier.

Year of alleged incident: 2005

Allegations: Stoynoff, a former writer for People, which is owned by TIME’s parent company Time Inc., wrote an essay for People published Oct. 12, 2016 that alleged Trump “forc[ed] his tongue down my throat” during an interview at Mar-a-Lago. “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?” Stoynoff said Trump told her at a time.

On Dec. 12, after Trump claimed he hadn’t met his accusers, People published a photo of Stoynoff with Trump and his wife Melania from the 2005 interview in Mar-a-Lago.

Trump’s response: At an October 2016 rally, Trump said: “She’s a liar. She is a liar… She’s writing a story — check out her Facebook page, you’ll understand.”


9. Mariah Billado
Year of alleged incident: 1997

Allegations: Billado, the 1997 Miss Vermont Teen USA, told BuzzFeed News for an Oct. 12, 2016 story that Trump walked into the dressing room while contestants were changing. She claimed that Trump said: “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”

Trump’s response: Trump has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct, but BuzzFeed News said Trump did not respond to Billado’s specific allegations.

10. Temple Taggart McDowell
Year of alleged incident: 1997

Allegations: Taggart McDowell told NBC News in an Oct. 13, 2016 story that Trump kissed her on the lips twice while she was representing Utah in the 1997 Miss USA pageant. She was 21 at the time. She said that a pageant chaperone witnessed the second alleged encounter and that it made her so uncomfortable that she advised Taggart McDowell not to be alone with Trump again.


Trump’s response: Trump told NBC News: “I don’t even know who she is. … She claims this took place in a public area. I never kissed her. I emphatically deny this ridiculous claim.”

Trump’s response: Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks told HuffPost: “Mr. Trump never heard of this woman and would never do that.”

Year of alleged incident: 2007

Allegations: Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice, said at a press conference on Oct. 14 that Trump kissed her without her consent at his office in New York after she reached out to him for business advice. She said that he later groped her and kissed her “very aggressively” before a dinner in Beverly Hills.

In January, Zervos filed a lawsuit against Trump alleging that he defamed her when he said she fabricated her account.


Trump’s response: In a statement, Trump said: “I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. … That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I’ve conducted my life.”

13. Kristin Anderson
Year of alleged incident: Early 1990s

Allegations: In an interview with The Washington Post for an Oct. 14, 2016 story, Anderson said Trump put his hand up her skirt and touched her vagina at a Manhattan nightclub when she was in her early 20s.

Trump’s response: Trump’s spokesperson Hope Hicks told the Post: “Mr. Trump strongly denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity. It is totally ridiculous.”

My point is that men will lie about sexual assault. Most of the women were accused of being liars.

Scott didn't even care.

Commonsense said...

In everyting you posted there was never a finding of guilt, even with the lower standard of the proponderence of the evidence.

Just to name a couple, boys at the University of Virgina and Duke University were falsely accused of rape and sexual assult and not one of their false accuses, not the women, the University officials, and not the media who demonized them ever apologized.

Where do they get their reputations back?

Where does Brett Kavenaught get his reputation back?

The accuser has now apparently offered 3 different versions of who was there.

There were four guys plus her at this party.

Two guys and her.

Four guys, her and another girl.

You'd think she would have gotten her story straight... Hope she wears a pink pussy hat to the hearing.

How about the six convicted in Central Park that Trump threw them under the bus?

Roger Amick said...

The President is the one on line here. If he's going to withdraw the nomination his base will not be happy. The Democrats will be even more motivated to get out and vote.

".@SenBobCorker tells me he does not have any outstanding questions for Judge Brett Kavanaugh: "I’ve been impressed with all that I’ve heard about him and again it’s unfortunate. I mean I can’t imagine the horror of being accused of something like this."

Roger Amick said...

Why isn't the economy the burning issue in the off year election?

doesn't take a political genius to see the writing on the wall here for Republicans. The 2018 election is shaping up as a straight referendum on a deeply unpopular President Trump.

Grassley Statement on the Supreme Court Nomination

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley issued the following statement regarding the nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.



“Anyone who comes forward as Dr. Ford has deserves to be heard, so I will continue working on a way to hear her out in an appropriate, precedented and respectful manner.

“The standard procedure for updates to any nominee’s background investigation file is to conduct separate follow-up calls with relevant parties. In this case, that would entail phone calls with at least Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford. Consistent with that practice, I asked Senator Feinstein’s office yesterday to join me in scheduling these follow-ups. Thus far, they have refused. But as a necessary step in evaluating these claims, I’ll continue working to set them up.

“Unfortunately, committee Republicans have only known this person's identity from news reports for less than 24 hours and known about her allegations for less than a week. Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do our jobs. The Minority withheld even the anonymous allegations for six weeks, only to later decide that they were serious enough to investigate on the eve of the committee vote, after the vetting process had been completed.


“It’s deeply disturbing that the existence of these allegations were leaked in a way that seemed to preclude Dr. Ford’s confidentiality.

“Over my nearly four decades in the Senate I have worked diligently to protect whistleblowers and get to the bottom of any issue. Dr. Ford’s attorney could have approached my office, while keeping her client confidential and anonymous, so that these allegations could be thoroughly investigated. Nevertheless, we are working diligently to get to the bottom of these claims.”

She's a "flake" according to Senator Orrin Hatch.

Ford received her Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, master's degrees from Stanford University and Pepperdine University, and her bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

The economy is far more popular at kitchen tables across the country than the media is admitting. Particularly for minorities.

Hate to burst your bubble there Roger (not really). But is was a Democrat control DA's office in a Democrat run city that falsely accused and convicted them.

They are far more culpable than any private citizen who took out a full page ad in the New York Times. After all he only knew what the Times told him and they told him the six were guilty as sin.

The DA's office however, knew the truth.

Do you really think a degree is immunization from being a vicious, crazed, vindictive person.

If you do, please rewatch Melissa Click's video.

The pu***y grabbing son of a bitch
All of the Central Park Five, accused of rape, we’re YOUNGER than 17: Trump said he hated them and called for their execution.

KD said...

Lol, fake outrage from man whore alky never ever gets old.

Commonsense said...

And mysteriously, all you want to do is blame Trump who did nothing more than take out an ad while giving the facist Democrat asshole of a DA a free pass.

The same asshole DA Democrat by the way who gave Harvy Weinstien a free pass. (well not totally free, old Harv gave thousands of dollars to the DA's election campaign. Investments pay off).

You have a serious case of TDS, sprinkled with a liberal dose of hypocrisy.

no sane person would care. did any of those women pursue a case, or were they all just cheap shot allegations against trump? we know the answer to that question.

and why does every woman reserve the right to be believed, except for bill clinton's victims? for some strange and inexplicable reason the "right to be believed" stops right there. how convenient.

always remember one thing alky -

in the war on women, it is a democrat - ted kennedy - who has the only confirmed kill.
