The report revealed several alleged unwelcome advances from Trump in the past

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Sunday saidDonald Trump would have to “answer for” a series of unwelcome advances on women highlighted in a recent report.

Priebus weighed in on theNew York Times story aboutTrump’s treatment of dozens of women in private during an appearance on ABC’s This Week.

“Look, I mean, these are things that he is going to have to answer for,” Priebus said. “But I also think there are things from many years ago and I think that, you know, as Christians, judging each other I think is — is problematic. I think it’s when people live in glass houses and throw stones is when people get in trouble.”

The Times interviewed several women who had worked with Trump, dated him, had social interactions with him or knew him since he was an adolescent. The newspaper report revealed several unwelcome romantic advances and “unsettling workplace conduct” over a span of decades.

Priebus added that he doesn’t think voters are judging Trump by his personal life. “I think people are judging Donald Trump as to whether or not he’s someone that’s going to go to Washington and shake things up. And that’s why he’s doing so well,” he said.

Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions shared the same sentiment, telling This Weekthat “people have not expected purity” from Trump.
