'Megyn Kelly Today'
Three women who have publicly accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct shared their stories with NBC's Megyn Kelly Monday and spoke of the backlash they faced after coming forward with their claims.
"It was heartbreaking last year. We're private citizens and for us to put ourselves out there to try and show America who this man is and how he views women, and for them to say 'eh, we don't care,' it hurt," said Samantha Holvey, who claims Trump walked into the contestants' dressing room during the Miss America pageant in 2006. She competed that year in the pageant.
Holvey, Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks detailed their interactions with Trump, which they said ranged from groping to forcible kissing and making lewd propositions, in an exclusive interview on "Megyn Kelly Today.” The interview came hours before a news conference where the three women demanded that Congress investigate their claims.

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.
Pedestrians and early morning commuters were evacuated from New York's Port Authority Bus Terminal after a suspect detonated an IED in an underground passageway. The terminal is the world's busiest, according to...
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."

When the violent rumble of a crude explosive detonating sent hundreds of commuters running in a crowded tunnel near Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal, four officers did what they were trained to do: They headed to the source of the sound.
Port Authority Police Department officers Jack Collins, Anthony Manfredini, Drew Preston and Sean Gallagher were credited with saving dozens of lives after the blast in a tunnel between the Port Authority/42nd Street subway station and the Times Square/42nd Street stop on Monday morning by jumping on the suspect in the attack, Akayed Ullah, as he reached for his cellphone.
"These police officers are among the most highly trained police officers in the nation, as are all Port Authority police officers,” said Paul Nunziato, the president of the PAPD’s rank-and-file union.

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.

Transgender recruits will be allowed to enlist in the military beginning Jan. 1, the Pentagon said Monday, as President Donald Trump's ordered ban suffered more legal setbacks.
The new policy reflects the difficult hurdles the federal government would have to cross to enforce Trump's demand earlier this year to bar transgender individuals from the military.
Three federal courts have ruled against the ban, including one Monday in Washington state.

For Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a passionate, liberal Democrat of Puerto Rican descent, there is no more important issue in the year-end budget showdown than protecting from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children — and who have only known America as their home.
The fate of these "Dreamers," as they are commonly known, is one of the trickiest issues to resolve as the White House and Congress seek to avert a Christmas government shutdown that nobody says they want. House Democrats, and their leader, Nancy Pelosi, insist that the Dreamers be dealt with as part of a broader package that combines unfinished legislative business, including military spending, disaster aid and low-cost health care for children.
Three women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct came together on Dec. 11 to share their stories. The White House denied the accusers’ claims.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is trying to piece together what transpired inside the White House over a critical 18-day period that began when senior officials were told that National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was susceptible to blackmail by Russia, multiple people familiar with the matter told NBC News.
The questions about what happened between Jan. 26 and Flynn's firing on Feb. 13 appear to relate to possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, say two people familiar with Mueller's investigation into Russia's election meddling and potential collusion with the Trump campaign.
Multiple sources say that during interviews, Mueller's investigators have asked witnesses, including White House Counsel Don McGahn and others who have worked in the West Wing, to go through each day that Flynn remained as national security adviser and describe in detail what they knew was happening inside the White House as it related to Flynn.
