Donald Trump's accusers, and their sexual-assault allegations, return to spotlight

They also serve a distinct political goal: expanding the focus from alleged sexual actions by a Republican candidate to Democrats as well, effectively making the topic of sexual harassment a bipartisan liability.

Trump even bragged about groping women, kissing them without permission and "grabbing them by the pussy", in an infamous open mic conversation with TV personality Billy Bush. At the second presidential debate, days after the tape was released, he appeared with several women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual misdeeds decades ago. The first accusations of misconduct against him - namely, allegedly making sexual advances on a 14-year-old when he was 32 - were reported by the Washington Post on November 9.

Multiple women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct in recent weeks, including one woman who accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was 16 and another who said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was 32.

Roy Moore has been accused of trolling teenagers for sex by nine women, who could testify at Al Franken's Ethics hearing.

Specter of Menendez retrial could haunt US Senate Democrats in 2018
Defense attorneys sought to show jurors that the two men are longtime friends who exchanged gifts out of friendship. The presiding judge declared the mistrial Thursday after interviewing all 12 jurors involved in the case.

Maher called the claims against Franken "very disturbing" and joked, "I was so shaken I called Bill Cosby to see if he had anything to calm me down".

The woman, now 55, said she was attending a fund-raiser for Mr Bush's re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her bum during a photo-op. America is extremely polarized and many people are now siding with abusers along political party lines.

Moore has repeatedly denied all the allegations against him.

"The President has been clear that those allegations were not truthful", he said.

New rules say 46 percent of Americans have hypertension
Aznaurov said the only way people in this range would have to start medication is if they have another underlying cardiac disease. The new standard means almost half (46 per cent) of the U.S. population will be defined as having high blood pressure .

"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words". Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps? Trump tweeted, misspelling Frankenstein. Leeann Tweeden, a newscaster and former model, wrote on a post on the KABC website on Thursday in which she said Franken kissed and groped her without her consent during a 2006 USO tour.

The "Lesley Stahl tape" Trump mentions is a reference to a 1995 NY magazine story about Saturday Night Live depicting Franken telling a joke about raping 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl.

Franken's alleged misconduct occurred not long after he had moved home to Minnesota from NY, and was already positioning himself to run for Senate in 2008, a race that he narrowly won after a recount. But he left it to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday to offer a bare-bones comment.

Moore won the Republican Senate primary on September 26. However, he has remained silent on the allegations facing Moore. McConnell, Moore's establishment nemesis, is a subject of disdain to conservative media outlets such as Breitbart and Trump's most fervent backers, giving Trump reason to stay out of their fray.
