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?

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.

Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano said today it’s still to early to declare the Mueller investigation biased over the anti-Trump texts sent by FBI agents. (Snip) On Outnumbered Overtime today, Napolitano told Harris Faulkner, “The issue is not ‘Do FBI agents have political opinions and can they express them?’ The answer to that is yes and yes. The issue is ‘Do those political opinions in any way influence the outcome of their investigation?´” And he noted the DOJ and FBI have “a lot of procedures to keep that from happening.” He agreed with Rod Rosenstein’s assessment today that it’s “too

Fox News announced Wednesday that Neil Cavuto — who already hosts two shows every weekday — will add a Saturday show to his packed schedule.

The text messages between FBI Agent Peter Strozk and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, have been released to both Fox News and CBS. SEE HERE and SEE HERE. The messages reflect a strong bias against President Trump. However, the bigger story is not the anti-Trump bias within the text communication, the BIGGER story is why the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (OIG), began even looking at Agent Peter Strozk’s communication in the first place. Remember, the original mandate by the Inspector General’s office was initiated to review and discover any politicization of the FBI and/or DOJ officials.

The Justice Department provided congressional committees with hundreds of text messages between Peter Strzok — the agent on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team who was demoted for critical messages about President Trump — and his alleged mistress Lisa Page, a lawyer also assigned to the probe. Those text messages were obtained by the Washington Examiner, and show extreme political opinions shared about the two dating back to 2015. One message from Page to Strzok is a link to a story about Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin, with the text “What an utter idiot.” In Nov. 2015, Page said she hopes House

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the

President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and

A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work. "I have deep respect for the career Foreign and Civil Service staff who, despite the stinging disrespect this Administration has shown our profession, continue the struggle to keep our foreign policy on the positive

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good

President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul - as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle. Trump said that the U.S. ´must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people´ into the country. The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place. And he called on Congress to end ´chain migration,´ in which family members are permitted to join relatives

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were. "It´s no mystery why Trump doesn´t trust U.S. intelligence agencies," Bloomberg´s Eli Lake wrote last month. "As the old saying goes:
