On Dec. 12, the Gazette-Times printed an article by the Associated Press that Bernie Sanders did not support an investigation into the sexual allegations against Trump because it states that it had already been done and the House and Senate don't investigate presidents. What?! The story does not include one quote from Sanders to support the headline, and since when is the president above the law and any investigations by our own form of checks and balances? All this on the very day that Sanders had, in fact, supported an investigation along with Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley into "the allegations."
The facts are these: they are not allegations, they are confirmed abuses of power, and although Trump claims he had not met one of the women, he has in fact met all 16 of them. Jessica Leeds, one of the accusers, states that when Trump saw her two years later at a fundraiser in New York, with a pregnant Ivana in tow, he blatantly said "you're the c--- on the airplane!," and walked off.
