A woman who accused President Trump of sexual misconduct is calling for him to share footage from the day she alleges he forcibly kissed her in 2006.

"Please, by all means, share the footage from the hallway outside the 24th floor residential elevator bank on the morning of January 11, 2006," Rachel Crooks, who is running as a Democrat for the Ohio state legislature, tweeted.

"Let's clear this up for everyone. It's liars like you in politics that have prompted me to run for office myself."


Trump on Tuesday denied the accusation from Crooks, who came forward with her allegation in 2016. His tweet came after The Washington Post published a profile on Crooks.

"A woman I don't know and, to the best of my knowledge, never met, is on the FRONT PAGE of the Fake News Washington Post saying I kissed her (for two minutes yet) in the lobby of Trump Tower 12 years ago," the president wrote on Twitter.

"Never happened!"

Crooks had accused Trump of forcibly kissing her on the 24th floor of the residential tower, not the lobby of Trump Tower.

In a subsequent tweet, Trump questioned why he would do this "in a public space with live security cameras running," calling the allegation "Another False Accusation."

Crooks was one of multiple women who has come forward to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.

Trump has repeatedly denied the accusations against him.

During a past news conference, Crooks had called for Trump to release the security videotapes from the day she alleges the incident took place, but he didn't respond, The Washington Post reported.
