Sen. Al Franken announces resignation date

Sen. Al Franken announces resignation date

"Before I go, I want to spend some time sharing what I have learned in a series of speeches focusing on the challenges I came to Washington to address", he added. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, said that Sen. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found fewer than one-quarter of Americans think the tax plan is a good idea, while two-thirds of those surveyed say it's designed mostly to help corporations and the wealthy.

Al Franken "may un-resign" amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. "It really did. And I've said this", Manchin said. And whatever the outcome is, I will live with that. "The Ethics committee should have been allowed to investigate and make its recommendation".

Franken announced his resignation on December 7, after a majority of Democratic senators called for him to leave office. And the only thing I'll ask for is expedite, put extra investigators, do whatever you have to, to go through this investigation, through the ethics.

This is a startling confession for a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where a lack of regard for due process ought to be disqualifying. The rhetoric of "justice" will be employed, while simultaneously vowing to hunt down real "anti-woman" offenders (i.e., Republicans).

Gov. Mark Dayton confirmed last week that he'd chosen Smith to replace Franken. Expect her to gain a speaker slot at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

Franken declared not long ago that he would leave from the Senate despite inappropriate behavior affirmations.

A special election will be held in Minnesota to permanently fill the seat timed to next year's midterm elections in November.

Franken's promise to resign "in the coming weeks" was an obvious move to hedge against the possibility of Moore being defeated.
