House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that there is a “course of action” regarding the investigation into claims of sexual assault regarding President Trump.

“The committee should allow the investigation to go forward. The court should allow the case to go forward, and the due process work its will,” Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said at a press briefing on Capitol Hill.

When asked if Mr. Trump should resign from office, Mrs. Pelosi deflected the question.

“I don’t think he ever should have been president,” she answered.

Mr. Trump has been accused by several women of sexual harassment or lewd behavior, stories which were made public during the 2016 campaign. The recent wave of women coming forward in various industries — dubbed the #MeToo movement — has inspired some of Mr. Trump’s accusers to come forward again.
