Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) Will Resign Today Amid Multiple Sexual Harassment Allegations … Franken Says “Not Accurate.”
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST, FRANKEN IS GONE NO MATTER WHAT HE TWEETED …
According to MRC News, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) will resign today following multiple allegations of sexual harassment and assault. Franken claims that there has been no final decision. However, today at a planned press conference it is all but certain that he will announce his resignation from the U.S. Senate. More than 30 Democrat senators have called for Franken to step down. Female Democrats Sens. Kamala Harris (CA), Claire McCaskill (MO), Patty Murray (WA), Mazie Hirono (HA), Tammy Baldwin (WI.) and Maggie Hassan (NH) each quickly followed Gillibrand (NY) in saying Franken should resign. Democrats are ready to eat one of their own as it is being filled with another Democrat and gives them two years to win back a seat that Franken would never have with these many scandals. His departure would require Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, to name a successor who would fill the final two years of Franken’s term. The Senate seat would be up for reelection in 2018.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand On Senator Al Franken: ‘Enough Is Enough’
A Democratic official who has spoken to Al Franken and key aides says Franken will resign his Minnesota Senate seat on Thursday, the official tells MPR News.
The official spoke to Franken and separately to Franken’s staff. A staff member told the official that Franken had gone to his Washington home to discuss his plans with family.
MPR News agreed to withhold the official’s name because the official wanted to give Franken the chance to talk about his decision in his own words.
Franken faced a cascade of calls Wednesday from fellow Democrats and other political allies to leave office in response to multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
After MPR News reported the planned resignation, a tweet from Franken’s official account said it was “not accurate.”
“No final decision has been made and the senator is still talking with his family,” the tweet read.
12/5/17 Sean Hannity: FBI – DOJ Fix Was in With Hillary Clinton Email Scandal and Trump Witch Hunt (VIDEO)
FBI AND DOJ TO BE HELD IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS FOR STONEWALLING …
The case against President Trump by Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been a bias political witch hunt. If the same was ever done to a Democrat president the liberal, MSM and Dems would be up in arms and rioting in the streets.
Enough is enough. When is the Special Counsel going to be investigated by a Special Counsel?
There needs to be a shake up at the FBI. The Deep State swamp needs to be drained.
Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) Announces the Inevitable … His Retirement Following Sexually Harassment Scandals
WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING …
On Tuesday, Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) has resigned from office. Sorry, he is calling it a retirement. One too many women came forward to sexually harassment allegations he knew to be true. The end was near when Conyers went into the hospital for stress. This was an obvious way to have an out. I guess this is one way to drain the swamp. What is probably most troubling and becomes obvious to the out of touch nature of Conyers is that in the midst of the sexual allegations of misconduct, some of which settlements were made, he said the following in his retirement, “My legacy can’t be compromised or diminished in any way by what we’re going through now. This too shall pass.” Really? That’s how flipped this Democrat man is with sexual misconduct against women. Also, in some vision that Michigan is a monarchy, Conyers endorsed his son to run for his seat. To the people of Michigan, why don’t you try a fresh start.
Embattled Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan, has announced Tuesday that he is retiring and has endorsed his son, John Conyers III to run for his seat. Conyers’ lawyer confirmed that the retirement is effective immediately.
“My legacy can’t be compromised or diminished in any way by what we’re going through now. This too shall pass,” said Conyers on a local Michigan radio station Tuesday morning.
He added, “I want you to know that my legacy will continue through my children. I have a great family here and especially in my oldest boy, John Conyers III who incidentally I endorsed to replace me in my seat in Congress.”
Shortly after the announcement, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, took to the House floor to read a statement from Conyers. She said he asked her to read his statement announcing his decision and that he’s notified House Speaker Paul Ryan, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder of his plans to step down.
“Given the totality of the circumstance of not being afforded the right of due process in conjunction with current health conditions, and to preserve my legacy and good name, I am retiring. I hope my retirement will be viewed in the larger perspective of my record of service as I enter a new chapter,” the statement from Conyers read.
While Conyers maintains he would be retiring immediately, CBS News’ Steve Chaggaris reports that Conyers’ resignation from the House will trigger a special election to replace him to be called by the governor, per Michigan law. That will take place as soon as the Michigan governor’s office receives his letter of resignation.
Sean Hannity 12/5/2017: The Mueller Deep State Witch Hunt … Hillary Clinton Double Standard and Trump-hating FBI Agent Peter Strzok (VIDEO)
THIS IS UNREAL HOW CORRUPT THE FBI IS AND WAS …
Watch and learn and you will begin to see how all the pieces fit together. The fix was in from the start with the Hillary Clinton investigation and subversive, Trump haters in the FBI paved the way for the current Mueller witch hunt. Sorry, Mueller’s investigation has zero credibility at this point. Maybe it is the FBI, James Comey and Mueller who need to be investigation for obstruction of justice, collusion, covering up and corruption?
ANOTHER WIN FOR TRUMP …
Yesterday, in a 7 -2 decision the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration travel ban by residents of six mostly Muslim countries. This is a huge victory for Trump, the rule of law and the safety of American citizens. This is a tremendous loss for Democrats and liberals who have no want or need to protect its citizens from outside hostile individuals. So much for all of the liberals who said Trump could not do such things like protect the United States of America. Although the decision is not final, it means that the ban can go into place while the cases are heard. With a 7-2 decision, it is most likely the ban will be upheld when the case is finally heard. The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.
The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries.
This is not a final ruling on the travel ban: Challenges to the policy are winding through the federal courts, and the justices themselves ultimately are expected to rule on its legality.
But the action indicates that the high court might eventually approve the latest version of the ban, announced by President Donald Trump in September. Lower courts have continued to find problems with the policy.
Just two justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, noted their disagreement with court orders allowing the latest policy to take full effect.
The new policy is not expected to cause the chaos that ensued at airports when Trump rolled out his first ban without warning in January.
The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a “bona fide” relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country. Grandparents, cousins and other relatives were among those courts said could not be excluded.
