WH on Franken, Trump Accusations: Franken 'Admitted Wrongdoing'

Al Franken and those made against President Donald Trump during last year's campaign is that the Minnesota Democrat "has admitted wrongdoing", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday.

"Senator Franken has admitted wrongdoing and the president hasn't; I think that's a very clear distinction", she continued.

"The American people spoke very loud and clear when they elected this president", she added.

In a statement, Franken apologized, explaining that the photo showing him placed his hands on Tweeden's breasts through a flak jacket while she slept was a joke that ended up not being amusing.

During the 2016 campaign, the president said he planned to sue the women who've accused him of sexual harassment, but when asked on Friday why he hasn't followed through with that threat, Sanders said she wasn't sure. Sanders was asked repeatedly by reporters about Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct.

Senators are now calling for an ethics investigation into whether Senator Al Franken. a comedian turned politician, should keep his seat ― a probe that Franken himself says he supports.

Asked Friday why Trump hasn't kept his pledge to take his female accusers to court, Sanders demurred. But she has refused to spell out what specific evidence Trump would require to be convinced that the nine women are telling the truth.

Sanders also appeared to argue that media coverage of Trump's alleged misconduct during the election, and his subsequent victory, showed he was innocent. The president, she reiterated, finds the allegations against Moore "extremely troubling" and if the allegations are true, he thinks he should step aside.
