Sen. Kamala Harris told an Iowa crowd on Wednesday that "we have a predator living in the White House," Politico reports.

The big picture: Fresh off her poised confrontation against former Vice President Joe Biden on debate night and a subsequent bump in the polls, Harris is falling back on her prosecutorial experience to make a unique attack against President Trump. There are varying reports of the exact number of women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

The latest: Author E. Jean Carroll accused Trump of raping her in a dressing room in New York's Bergdorf Goodman department store in the mid-1990s, per a New York Magazine cover story.

Flashback: Harris told NPR's Politics Podcast in June that her potential administration's Justice Department "would have no choice" but to prosecute Trump after his term in office.
