Postado Dezembro 08, 2017

Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has called on U.S. President Donald Trump to considering resigning to address allegations of sexual misconduct levied against him during the 2016 election.

Sanders stated, "What I worry about right now, as we speak, in restaurants and in offices all over this country where you have bosses who are not famous, there is harassment of women and women are being intimidated".

However, Franken might be the most prominent leader to find himself accused of sexual allegations in recent months, but he's not alone.

"We have a president of the United States who acknowledged on a tape widely seen all over the country that he's assaulted women", he said, referring to the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape leaked a year ago.

During the interview, the senator also noted that there are countless women throughout America whose stories will never be heard as their harassers "are not famous". "I would hope that he pays attention to what's going on and think about resigning", the senior politician tweeted. Franken apologized to some of his accusers while denying several of the allegations, according to Time.

The chamber sat in silence as Franken exchanged handshakes or hugs with his Democratic colleagues. Sanders recommended that the people of Minnesota should be the ones to decide if Sen.

"Moore may be possibly joining the Senate and he has been accused of far worse than what Senator Franken is accused of", King said. Franken resigning, how can Republicans justify a "Sen".

On Dec. 7, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked if Trump would address the allegations against him following Franken's resignation.
