Wife of NHL Hall of Famer tweets about elevator encounter with Trump

Three of the 16 women who have accused President Trump of Sexual Misconduct have spoken out on the Today show. Veuer's Sam Berman has the full story.

Stacia Robitaille, whose husband, Luc, is an NHL Hall of Famer and president of the Los Angeles Kings, wrote on Twitter on Monday night that President Donald Trump, "told me I was coming home with him" more than two decades ago in an elevator at Madison Square Garden.

"I was once on a elevator alone with [Trump] (& a man w/him) at Madison Square Gardens (sic)," Stacia Robitaille wrote. "He was aggressive & told me I was coming home with him. I laughed, stating I was married to a Ranger. He guaranteed me my husband didn’t make as much money as him. #ThisIsOurPresident"

Luc Robitaille, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009, played for the New York Rangers for two seasons, from 1995-1997. The couple was married in 1992.

Stacia Robitaille added in a second tweet that, "I’m not a liberal lefty and I’m not looking for attention. Just felt bad keeping it to myself." 

More than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual harassment, with four of the accusers this week calling for a Congressional investigation into the president. Trump -- who bragged about groping women on a 2005 Access Hollywood tape -- has denied the allegations.

Luc Robitaille spent the majority of his 19-season NHL career with the Kings. He spent 10 years as the franchise's president of business operations before being promoted to team president earlier this year.
