A group of women who have accused Trump of sexual harassment and assault are coming together for the first time to call for a congressional investigation into their claims against the president.

The women will detail their allegations at a press conference Monday morning hosted by Brave New Films, the progressive organization that released a short documentary last month detailing 16 different women's stories about the president's alleged pattern of inappropriate behavior.


During Monday's conference, the women will "share their firsthand accounts of President Trump groping, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women," according to the press release, and call for Trump to be held accountable for his alleged actions.

Three of the women will also appear on TODAY before the conference to discuss their experiences with Megyn Kelly, according to USA Today.

Brave New Films announced the surprise press conference late Sunday night, days after three senators separately suggested that Trump should resign and only a few hours after US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley told Face the Nation that "women who accuse anyone should be heard," including those who have accused Trump.

For his part, the president has repeatedly denied the numerous claims against him and has reportedly suggested that the infamous "grab them by the pussy" tape was fake, even though it's very clearly real.
