Why didn't these women that are coming forward file charges against Trump

    Why didn't these women that are coming forward file charges against Trump


    Trump is a billionaire so if he did this the women should have filed charges and they would have been paid to keep their mouth shut.  The tape is a different story because he said those things but did not know he was being recorded.  Saying is not doing it and some men like to brag especially rich ones and celebrities but it is all talk.

    Maybe because some women care more about drawing attention to and holding their accusers accountable than they do about money? Can't quite put my finger on it but using the words "paid to keep their mouth shut" makes me want to vomit in the context of sexual assault.

    Legal fees also cost a lot and the verdict, especially when it comes to celebrities, does not always go in the victim's favour. Sexual assault cases are often a battle of he said/she said and guess whose voice tends to be louder when a rich celebrity is involved?

    Why give him the benefit of the doubt when he literally said that he did those things himself? How do you know that it's "all talk"?

      Very good answer.  But why wait until now.  Sorry my remark offended you.  I did not say it was all talk.  If what you say is true why are they coming forward now?  A persons opinion of women has nothing to do with running the country.

      Aime Fposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      Because a woman coming forward with a claim often goes nowhere & many feel it's not worth it. After the video of him saying those things someone probably thought "here's something to back me up" & as one woman comes forward so do others

      So who is paying them off now?
      Trump has been running for over a year and a half and now they come out? Who cares, are you getting a priest. We elected Bill Clinton twice as pres. Get serious, this is a pathetic red herring from the liberals.

      Aime Fposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      It's not even remotely uncommon for women to come forward after years only after other women or some other form of support comes up. In this case, the video where he admits to behaving that way. This literally happens all the time.

      They are now being proven to be false and he should put them all behind bars where they belong along with the corrupt candidate that put them up to it. One was photoed with Hillary...please...and of course we already know she should be in jail.

    Unbelievable. Same thing said about Bill Cosby 51 accusers. And (so far) Trump's 13th accuser Summer Zervos.  80% of women don't report rape or takes years to come forward.  Are you being willfully ignorant with this Q?  Defense lawyers have will impugn the credibility of the victims. Clinton is hated for defending a rapist she knew was guilty but you don't believe 13 (so far) woman?

    Because most don't get justice, putting the victim on trial unlike any other crime such as robbery. Because my family will slut shame and victim blame me.

    Trump continues to deny the veracity of the females but doesn’t come up with evidence disputing the claims. Trump Still doesn't get it: Trump on the woman who claimed he assaulted her on a plane: “She would not be my first choice ... That would not be my first choice.” pic.twitter.com/o7VMgtvVMx

    “A lot of it comes in the form of, ‘Well no woman asks for it, but…What was she doing? What was she wearing? Why was she behaving like that? What did she expect?’ It’s the ongoing shaming. And dealing with that while you’re dealing with the trauma of sexual assault can just be overwhelming.”

    One in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before they reach 18.

    I think Americans should be more as as much concerned with the 12 year old victim Hillary ruined the life of and tried to act like she deserved what she got. I think that is so horrible and no one wants to talk about that.

    The same (why now?) argument was used regarding Bill Cosby.
    According to reports the women speaking out against Trump claim they were moved to do so after he claimed in the debate that what he said was on the bus with Billy Bush were  "just words" or locker room talk and that he (never ever acted that way in reality).
    Having said that it is a tightrope to walk between believing accusers and subscribing to the belief that one is innocent until proven guilty.
    The court of opinion often trumps the legal system. Even when folks are found "not guilty" in court the public may feel they got away with it.
    O.J. Simpson was found not guilty. He spent $10 Million on attorneys!
    In the case of Cosby and Trump you have a situation where these men are very rich, powerful, and admired. It's not hard to accept the possibility an ordinary citizen might feel no one would believe them.
    A rich and famous person can always say an accuser is out for money. On the other hand if Trump was a mailman or mechanic he wouldn't nearly be given the same presumption of innocence.
    However history has shown there is strength in numbers. Once one person steps up another gains courage to do so and so on.
    Nevertheless if someone likes or dislikes an individual they will find a way to justify their feelings towards them with or without facts.

      OJ was found not guilty because the police didn't do their job. BTW, how much money did Los Angeles and California spend on prosecuting the case.
      There is also a difference in being accused of murder, and what is the sex assault here?

  6. tamarawilhite profile image91
    tamarawilhiteposted 19 months ago

    Because the charges are false.
    There are already many holes in these stories from citing concerts that did not happen to flying on planes not on service on the routes they were taking.
    The other aspect not reported enough - BOTH accusers are Clinton donors, which is more than a mere supporter. And sitting on sexual allegations about a billionaire that you don't bother to report until he's a Republican front-runner, right after a tape of him saying sexist things comes out?
    Political. It is all political.

  7. Ken Burgess profile image88

    FIRST I would like to clarify what I am arguing about.

    I have read SOME of these articles and accusations, they are about him seeing young women nude at a pageant in a common area dressing room, they are about inappropriate touching, and vulgar language.

    I have seen nothing about rape, or attempted rape.

    With that said, I look to the possible motives... some have already been tied to the Clinton Campaign in some fashion, others have been countered by eye-witness accounts... the key to me is how neatly this was all packaged, to hit 30 days before people went to vote.  Not six months ago to destroy him and help get Rubio or Cruz  the nomination... but 30 days out, when the goal is to weaken the voter's belief and support of him so that Clinton can secure a victory.

    The goal ISN'T to get 'justice' so much as to thwart his campaign and ensure Clinton's victory.

      True. There have been no allegations of rape re Trump whereas Cosby drugged & raped. Trump is accused of groping. As for the "octupus" on an airplane allegation, that rang false. My point is, any sexual misconduct is unacceptable & must be de

      Women are the worst in manipulating men, and women don't consider sexual assault from a women. They think of it as a good time. So just because men don't tell, it doesn't mean that it doesn't happen. How many women use their sex to get their ways?

    3. savvydating profile image97
      savvydatingposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      The worst? No. Throughout the ages, women have been manipulated by men. As for women who manipulate men, I have no respect for them. That being said, those women either have no soul, (like Hillary) or they sadly think sex is all they are good for.

      Ken, I do understand what you are saying. The supreme court issue is huge. Still, Trump needs to reach out to women by at least acting like a gentleman. It could make all the difference.

      Which is more important, the future of our country or the sensitivity of the women in it? I understand how it affects women and how they feel. But, I also know that women are a lot stronger than to let words destroy our country.

    7. savvydating profile image97
      savvydatingposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      They are both important. Keep in mind that 4 to 8 years of watching a president talk like a teenager will get old fast, even for men. More than half the population is asking him to act like a grown-up. That shouldn't be so hard to do.

    Some did file charges and the police did not believe them.  He married Ivana, his first wife after she filed rape charges because a wife can't testify against her husband. 
    Most of the women I am sure are scared for their life and the life of their families.
    Trump could ruin them financially and I am sure he will.  And he could even do them bodily harm and get away with it, just like he bragged about how he could shoot someone and not lose any voters.

      Unfortunately this is where we are at, an emotional topic that has the majority of women irate, and caring less about the other issues.
