Gillibrand calls on president to resign over misconduct allegations”

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand believes that President Donald Trump should resign due to what she believes are credible accusations that he engaged in sexual misconduct dating back to the 1970s.

But in her interview with CNN, Gillibrand said Congress ought to show some interest in the allegations if Trump won't resign.

"These allegations are credible; they are numerous, " said Gillibrand, a leading voice in Congress for combating sexual assault in the military. In addition, none of the Democratic senators who discussed Trump's resignation explicitly said they supported removing him from office through impeachment.

Other Democrats in the Senate have called on Trump to resign, including Ron Wyden of OR and Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of Oregon.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) also thinks it's a head-scratcher. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of OR have also said Trump should step down. Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Jeff Merkley (D., Ore.) in calling on Trump to step down during an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

"Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you can't really hold your breath for", Gillibrand said. "I bet you there are sitting Democratic senators, and many on the Republican side too, who are guilty of far worse things than him".

The New York senator made the statement the same day three of Trump's accusers - Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks - called for a congressional investigation into Trump's alleged misconduct. "Al Franken (D-Minn.) over sexual harassment allegations".
