Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women since before taking office; he has denied the claims.

The lawmaker, who asked not to be identified, told NBC Democrats would be "no better" than Republicans if they chose to "retaliate" at the State of the Union address.

"This is a culture change that is sweeping the country, and Congress is embracing it", Representative Jackie Speier - the politician who spearheaded Congress' own #MeToo movement - said on CNN.

It remains to be seen how fast and how fully lawmakers will open their arms to reforms in the midst of a national reckoning on sexual misconduct that has rocked Capitol Hill, state legislatures, Hollywood, Wall Street and the news media. Trump has said that the accusations are "100% fabricated and made-up charges".
