Can Congress investigate sexual assault allegations against Trump?

A wide array of congressional committees conduct oversight hearings on presidential administrations.

But an investigation of Trump’s personal conduct in the years before he took office — more than a dozen women have accused him of sexually inappropriate behavior ranging from voyeurism to assault — would likely fall under impeachment proceedings for alleged “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The Republicans who control Congress have shown no interest in impeaching Trump.
