MP Jackie Speier calls to investigate allegations of sexual assault as her colleagues shrug



When another woman accuses President Donald Trump of sexual assault, a Democratic member of Congress is now calling for a formal investigation into the approximately two dozen similar allegations against Trump.

Rep. Jackie Speier, a Californian Democrat who sits on the Parliament's Regulatory and Reform Committee and is a leader in sexual harassment, said Congress should address these allegations after writer E. Jean Carroll published a book in which she described a violent sexual encounter with Trump over 20 years ago.

"We have a lot on our plate, so I can not talk about when it will happen," Speier said Tuesday in a brief interview with The Daily Beast. She reiterated that it was worth the time of the legislature, especially given Carroll's story.

"This particular case is particularly outrageous, and there is no reason not to believe the woman," said Speier. "I think his problem is, he sees it as a way to woo a woman, and women see it as a sexual assault or rape."

A House Democrat aide told The Daily Beast that in Carroll's allegations, some party legislators are considering an investigation into their history and the many others. According to the adjutant, however, questions remain as to which committee could be responsible for such a matter.
