Pressure mounts to unmask Hill harassers

Lawmakers in both parties say members of Congress shouldn't be allowed to use taxpayer money to settle harassment claims without being named.

Pressure is mounting on congressional leaders to release the names of lawmakers who have secretly settled sexual harassment claims at taxpayer expense — a move that some members of Congress are loath to make.

President Donald Trump told reporters this week that he believes Congress should disclose the settlements. A handful of House members from both parties are calling on Republican leadership to do the same.

A simple way to "drain the swamp". I'm all for it!
Bottom line is that we - the taxpayers - paid our hard-earned money for these settlements, so it goes without saying that we should know what we paid for.
I can't believe there isn't a HUGE outcry to know the details of these payments!
It OUR money!
