Trump sexual assault allegations

With only three days before he takes office, President-elect Donald Trump's legal woes are far from over. Attorney Gloria Allred announced Tuesday a new lawsuit against him for sexual misconduct, filed in Los Angeles, on behalf of former "The Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos.

Allred and Zervos will hold a press conference at 2:30 p.m. EST Wednesday, where they will provide details of Trump's alleged sexual misconduct and the lawsuit.

In October 2016, the New York Times reported Trump had been accused of "inappropriately touching two women." Trump demanded retraction of the story and denied all claims, calling his accusers "horrible liars" and threatening to sue them after the election.

At least a dozen women have previously accused the president-elect of sexual assault and he has denied all such claims. Most of the allegations arose after the leak of a 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape, which showed Trump bragging to host Billy Bush about grabbing women's genitals and saying he could get away with it because he was a "star."

Allred has previously represented several women who made claims against Trump, including former Miss USA contestant Temple Taggart and adult film performer Jessica Drake.

With all the legal drama Trump is embroiled in, and the nature of the allegations, many people have wondered if he could be impeached.

The grounds for impeaching a president are listed in Article II of the United States Constitution, which says an official must be convicted by a majority vote in Congress over “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Several lawsuits filed against Trump, accusing him of sexually assaulting women, if proven, could qualify as grounds for impeachment.

However, even if he was impeached, it will not mean Trump would immediately be stripped of the presidency. If the House of Representatives were to agree he should be impeached, Trump would also have to go through a Senate trial, where two-thirds of the senators would have to agree to remove him from office. And even for the House to impeach him, there would first have to be a debate on whether his behavior amounts to "other high crimes and misdemeanors."
