Allred: Women are contacting me about Trump misconduct
Attorney Gloria Allred’s phones are ringing.
Allred, the civil rights lawyer who takes on high-profile targets, like Bill Cosby, Roman Polanski and, yes, Trump, confirmed to us that since the Access Hollywood tape’s release, she has been “contacted by women who allege inappropriate contact by Mr. Trump.”
More to the point, Allred discussed how Trump’s words suggest criminal behavior. “If there is an unwanted or unconsented to touching of a person’s intimate parts such as the genital areas or a woman’s breasts, that could constitute a sexual assault or a sexual battery,” she explained yesterday. She added that “when Rudy Giuliani was asked” on Sunday’s political programs “if Donald Trump was describing a sexual assault on the recently released 2005 video, he responded, ‘That’s what he was talking about.'” Allred said, “I am disgusted by what Donald Trump said and admitted that he had done on that video. An apology is not enough.”
