Email #47, Subject: “grabbing a woman by her genitals”?

When asked if “grabbing a woman by her genitals without consent” would be sexual assault, future attorney general Senator Sessions answered: “Certainly it would be.”  As you of course know President Trump was recorded bragging that he committed sexual assault in 2005. Over one dozen complainants came forward during his campaign to accuse him of other incidents of assault. Do you believe any of these accusations are true? Do you believe the President fabricated his own account? If President Trump is an assaulter, he is not the first in the White House. There are documents accusing President Kennedy of identical behavior. May I assume we agree that it was criminal behavior then, and that it is criminal behavior now? As Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, what are you doing in response to this array of accusations and evidence? May I trust that you consider sexual assault an impeachable offense?
