Two women in North Carolina have been accused of sexually assaulting a transgender woman at a bar.

WRAL reported that the sexual assault began in the bathroom at Milk Bar, a popular spot in Raleigh.

The assault continued into the bar area, where a bartender told the women to stop, authorities revealed.

“Amber Harrell, 38, and Jessica Fowler, 31, are both charged with second-degree kidnapping and sexual battery in connection with the incident,” according to WRAL.

The report stated that the victim contacted 911 dispatchers the day after the incident, which happened last month. She accused Harrell and Fowler of exposing themselves and touching her in the bathroom. She said the two also assaulted her at the bar.

“One of the girls is still touching all over me. She would not let go. I asked her numerous times. She (bartender) could see I was visibly uncomfortable,” the victim explained to a 911 dispatcher.

Witnesses claimed that it was obvious the victim was being assaulted because she was transgender, WRAL said.

The owner of the Milk Bar, Bunch of Fives Hospitality Co., said in a statement that it was committed to assisting authorities in this investigation.

Bunch of 5s and Milk Bar seek to continue to welcome all patrons into a safe environment.”

The two suspects, who have been released on bond, will have to register as sex offenders if found guilty.

And according to a report by Eli Yokley for Morning Consult’s website, things aren’t getting any better for incumbent GOP senators who are considered vulnerable in the 2020 election.

While the House Intelligence Committee is spearheading impeachment with its investigation into President Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal, it seems Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California can’t stop obsessing about the Steele Dossier.

According to the Daily Beast, the ranking member of the committee launched into an exchange during the closed impeachment inquiry hearings about the dossier on Thursday with Gordon Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union who is at the center of the Ukraine scandal. He was a point person in Trump’s efforts to get the Ukrainians to announce an investigation into the 2016 election as well as former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for favorable treatment from the White House.

CNN correspondent Jamie Gangel reported Thursday that Republicans at the contentious White House meeting the previous day featuring President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were deeply alarmed by the GOP leader’s behavior and demeanor.

Citing a Republican source, who reportedly conferred with others who attended the meeting, said they were “completely shaken” and “shell shocked” by the president.

Pelosi and fellow Democrats had tried to make that point publicly on Wednesday, saying that Trump had a “meltdown,” went on a “diatribe,” and was insulting to the House speaker. Pelosi added that she was also concerned about the president’s “health.” But at least in public, some Republicans tried to turn the tables on Pelosi, saying it was she who behaved inappropriately by walking out of the meeting. However, even these Republicans didn’t really deny that Trump was acting bullying and insulting toward the speaker.
