Over 50 Democratic lawmakers on Monday asked the House oversight committee to investigate sexual misconduct allegations made against President Donald Trump.
The Democratic Women’s Working Group wrote that the country deserves "a full inquiry into the truth of these allegations" in a letter to committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.
“At least 17 women have publicly accused the President of sexual misconduct,” said the letter, which was signed by 56 lawmakers. “We cannot ignore the multitude of women who have come forward with accusations.”
The letter added that Trump should be allowed to present evidence in his own defense.
In a tweet Tuesday morning, Trump denied he knows or ever met his accusers: "Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia - so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!"

A man with an ISIS-inspired suicide plot went into one of New York City's busiest subway corridors and detonated a "low-tech" pipe bomb strapped to his chest with Velcro and zip ties just as Monday's morning commute got underway, setting off mass evacuations but leaving no one but himself with serious injuries, according to city and state officials.
NYPD officials have detained and identified the suspect as Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old man of Bangladeshi descent living in Brooklyn. Commissioner James O'Neill said Ullah "did make statements" about ISIS following the blast in a block-long tunnel between the Times Square subway station and a stop under the bus terminal around 7:15 a.m.

As part of the crew digging a subway extension under the streets of Los Angeles, Ashley Leger always keeps her safety gear close by.
When her phone buzzes, she quickly dons a neon vest, hard hat and goggles before climbing deep down into a massive construction site beneath a boulevard east of downtown.
Earth-movers are diverted, and Leger gets on her hands and knees and gently brushes the dirt from a spot pointed out by a member of her team. Her heart beats faster because there's a chance she'll uncover what she calls "the big find."

The family of the man accused of detonating a pipe bomb in a busy subway corridor near Manhattan's Port Authority Bus Terminal blasted law enforcement's response in the aftermath of the attack.
The family of Akayed Ullah claimed officers forced a 4-year-old girl in the cold and pulled another teenage relative from his high school class and interrogated him without a parent, guardian or attorney present.
In a statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the legal director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations in New York, the family said it was "outraged by the behavior of law enforcement" following the bombing.
