Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday that he does not support investigating accusations against President Trump for sexual assault because the voters have already cast their ballots.

Trump’s problems were vetted during the campaign,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said on CNN. “The American people elected President Trump.”

The senator said that if a new accusation were made during Mr. Trump’s presidency, then Congress should investigate that claim, but the senator said the voters have made their judgment with these allegations out in the public.

Four women have come forward in recent days to retell their stories of sexual misconduct regarding Mr. Trump. These women all came forward during the presidential campaign as well, but said they needed to tell their stories again in wake of the new national conversation about sexual harassment.

Democratic lawmakers have already called for a formal investigation into the claims.
