Trump takes aim at Sen. Al Franken over groping claims

Hollywood’s #MeToo wave engulfs Washington

CNN's politics website now features a clock tracking President Trump's promise to address the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R).

Trump has not mentioned Moore in public comments and tweets, and has ignored reporters' questions about the allegations.

Senate President Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) has already announced that the Senate Ethics Committee will investigate the charges against Franken. "That they can't seem to come to terms with the reality that their president is just as guilty as Roy Moore".

"Al Franken was a brand-new news story yesterday, and the president weighs in, as he does, on the news of the day", she said.

Sanders did say, however, that a Senate investigation into the allegations against Franken were an "appropriate action".

Moore, who is running to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has faced accusations over the past week that he pursued sexual and romantic relationships with teenage girls while he was in his 30s. The White House said Trump supported the RNC's decision, which came as the party absorbed polling data showing Moore trailing Democrat Doug Jones in the Republican stronghold.

O'Neill also said he would not hear new cases but will decide on the ones presented before he announced his candidacy. He's amended his initial post - which offered information that could reveal the identities of his past partners.

When asked about Moore, who has been accused by five women of sexual misconduct, Hillary said he does not appear to be someone who will bring respect and honour to the state of Alabama. When asked last month if it "was the official White House position that all of these women [who accused the president] are lying", Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded: "Yeah, we have been clear on that from the beginning and the president has spoken on it".

Moore, now 70, has also denied any wrongdoing and said he will contest the December 12 poll. Both had said they believe Moore's accusers.

Real Time host Bill Maher on Friday used his monologue to defend Minnesota Senator Al Franken, who earlier this week became the latest politician to be accused of sexual harassment. "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?.", Mr Trump tweeted.

More than a dozen allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct were levelled against Trump in the waning days of the 2016 presidential campaign. "He still firmly believes that", Sanders told reporters on Thursday, noting, "This is a decision people of Alabama need to make, not the President". Trump was caught on tape in conversation with "Access Hollywood" boasting in graphic detail of sexually harassing women.

Smith pointed out that Menendez "was not tried for sexual assault" and that those are "two different things we're talking about".

"And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women", Trump said in a second tweet.
