On Tuesday evening, People magazine named six friends and colleagues who corroborated writer Natasha Stoynoff's account of being sexually assaulted by Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in 2005, and printed their own recollections. On Fox News Tuesday night, Megyn Kelly was impressed by People's "extraordinary response." "It's not just, 'we trust our writer' — it's 'Here are six people who she told the night of the alleged attack, the day after the alleged attack, an independent witness who says she was there for the Melania Trump exchange,'" she told guest Howard Kurtz. "I mean, if this is a conspiracy, wow, it's a really well organized by People."

"Well, I don't think the election's gonna turn on this," Kurtz said, but the fact that these six people can give a "detailed account" of this decade-old story "adds credibility to her account, because why would she make this up 10, 11 years ago?" This is mostly still in the news, he added, because Trump himself keeps on attacking his accusers as liars and attacking the media for carrying their allegations.
