Franken resigns from Senate
amid new claims of sexual
misconduct, backlash from Dems

Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2017 12:27:32 PM

DEVELOPING: Calling it “the worst day of his political life,” Sen. Al Franken said Thursday he will resign from the U.S. Senate following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him. Minnesota Public Radio reported late Wednesday he would resign, though Franken’s office pushed back saying it wasn’t a done deal yet. It will be up to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a successor. (Snip) Multiple sources reported that the likely candidate could be Democratic Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, a close ally of Franken. Any successor, if he steps down, would serve until a special election is held in

Comments:
That headline is misleading. Franken said he would ´resign in the coming weeks.´ He did not give a date, nor did he say when that will occur. He will still be there to vote and cause mischief until he actually resigns. Who knows, he could change his mind couldn´t he?

Hopefully the odious Franken has bloviated from the US Senate floor for the last time.

Remarkably horrid speech. All about him...how great he is, how he has done nothing wrong, etc. Paul Wellstone is so proud!

And yes, he did not resign. Said he "will be resigning..."

A jerk, a creep, an embarrassment.

Rush thinks this "resignation" is contingent on whether Roy Moore wins and is seated. He thinks that if Roy Moore takes a senate seat then Frankenstein will change his mind and stay on.

I find all of this laughable, that the party of The Clintons, with all of their sexual scandals and shrillary´s vicious handling of Bill´s accusers, is suddenly deciding that such behavior is no longer acceptable.

They are not doing this because they are repenting of past indiscretions and turning over a new leaf. They are up to something that will ultimately bring them more power and benefits if successful.

I noted that in the list list of things Franken had faith in that faith in God was notably absent. Perhaps that is one reason he finds himself embroiled in these circumstances.

He grew up in Minnesota then left for decades until he decided to carpetbag a Senate seat. Election fraud got him in office first time around.

The man is a piece of filth who disgraced the Senate. Rumor has it that he´s being paid off to resign (and yes, he´s staying till Jan to get another year on the pension.) Having resigned but not admitting guilt, he will be free to pursue entertainment and other political opportunities as none of the women accusers have the resources to bring charges against him.

The payoffs to help him resign but not deny his harassment likely came from big lefties like Soros, Tom Steyer, or Tides (Teresa Heinz)

Franken should be gelded and put in a dirty stable. Having said what he did about Trump and Roy Moore, it should be done without anesthesia.

My guess is that if Roy Moore gets elected and seated in the Senate Franken will not resign due to Moore´s election as the reason. He will piously declare that what he did was nothing compared to Moore so need to resign.

OP, #21 are correct and clarification much appreciated. Rush Limbaugh discussed the verbiage of Franken’s “resignation” that allows him to stay long enough to vote on some key issues and it also allows time for him to possibly, possibly, decide he is not going to resign.

RE #5: I think Rush is wrong on this one. I think Franken’s resignation is to add impetus to NOT seating Judge Moore (should he win), but more importantly setting up grounds to impeach President Trump for sexual mis-conduct.

Franken is a shallow minded failure as a Senator, yet his speech was one of self-aggrandizement and unearned praise. I guess no one else, including fellow Senators, could find nothing Franken has done worthy of praise.

Al, do America a favor and go quietly into the oblivion you rightfully earned.

I agree with poster #5, if Moore ends up in the Senate Franken will not resign. There is a difference between the allegations being faced by Franken and Moore, Franken’s problem stems from from occurances that happened when he was an elected Senator, and Moore’s problems stem from occurances that took place about fourty years ago. Chances are that Moore will be elected in Alabama, a Bible Belt State that does believe In “redemption”. Franken is just too arrogant to simply resign.

The House Intelligence Committee is set to interview Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and British publicist Rob Goldstone on Monday as part of its ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, CNN reported. Wasserman Schultz resigned as head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) last July after leaked emails showed party officials appeared to favor Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Wasserman Schultz has also denied knowing about an arrangement for the DNC to help fund a dossier containing salacious allegations about President Trump. Clinton’s campaign and the DNC reportedly paid millions to a law firm involved in the compilation of the dossier.

PART I A GLOBAL THREAT EMERGES How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion. In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation. The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was

McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week.

There is widespread opinion that many of the officials enlisted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller are ethically challenged. Critics point to Mueller team members like DOJ Attorney Andrew Weissman, Jeannie Rhee and Aaron Zebley as specific examples of players within Mueller’s investigative team who have a history of gross ethics violations and also carry jaw-dropping conflicts-of-interest.

In a letter obtained by Fox News and sent to House and Senate committees on Saturday, the transition team’s attorney alleges “unlawful conduct” by the career staff at the General Services Administration in handing over transition documents to the special counsel’s office.

An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading

I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) suggested Thursday that Americans need to have more babies or risk a collapse of popular entitlements like Medicare and Social Security. “This is going to be the new economic challenge for America: people. Baby boomers are retiring — I did my part, but we need to have higher birth rates in this country,” Ryan, a father of three, told reporters as he riffed on how Republicans will tackle entitlement and welfare reform in 2018. “Baby boomers are retiring and we have fewer people following them in the workforce.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is returning to Arizona and will miss the final vote on his party’s tax bill this week, CBS News reported Sunday. McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week. Republicans have won over two key votes for the measure, meaning they should still have the razor-thin majority needed to

For much of the year, Kirsten Gillibrand’s critics — sensing a presidential aspirant in their midst — had assumed that the New York senator could not hear enough about herself. For one day at least, it appeared she had. It had been about 10 hours since President Trump accused her of “begging” for campaign contributions that she “would do anything” to secure, and the Ms. Gillibrand, driving with her 14-year-old son on Tuesday evening, flipped on the radio looking for an update on the Senate race in Alabama. The top story, instead, was her. The radio went off again. What, exactly,

Democrats hate her (#Tolerance)... Feminists despise her (#GlassCeiling)... Progressives want her silenced (#Diversity)... And the liberal media dreads her. Who is she? She’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In case you’ve been hiding under a freshly broken shard of glass from one of the ceilings being broken all over Washington D.C. lately - keep reading, it gets better. She’s the 3rd female to ever hold the office of the White House Press Secretary. - Dee Dee Myers was the first under Clinton (1993-1994) - Dana Perino was the 2nd who served under Bush in 2007 And it’s no surprise that Trump put her there because she’s perfect for the job.

Spurred by the multitude of sexual abuse scandals, top Hollywood executives have tapped Anita Hill to chair the newly formed Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace. The commission made the announcement Friday following a meeting convened by Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, Nike Foundation founder and co-chair Maria Eitel, Nina Shaw, and venture captialist Freada Kapor Klein. “The Commission will not seek just one solution, but a comprehensive strategy to address the complex and inter-related causes of the problems of parity and power,” said Kennedy.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is “worried” the House Intelligence Committee is about to pull the plug on the Russia investigation. In a Friday Tweetstorm, the Committee’s ranking Democrat fretted about the future of the probe — which Schiff believes is something of a sham. “Republicans have scheduled no witnesses after next Friday and none in 2017,” Schiff wrote. “We have dozens of outstanding witnesses on key aspects of our investigation that they refuse to contact and many document requests they continue to sit on.” The California Democrat added, “It appears Republicans want to conduct just enough interviews to give the
