'Sudden Case of Feverish Morality': Ingraham Calls Out Dems' 'Political Calculation' on Franken

Tucker Rips 'Fraud' Gillibrand for Bill Clinton-Al Franken Hypocrisy


Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced today he will resign from the U.S. Senate in the coming weeks amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

But on "The Daily Briefing," Ben Shapiro questioned whether Franken will follow through on that if Roy Moore becomes a U.S. senator. 

"I'm not sure he's even gonna leave. ... Let's say Roy Moore is elected and is seated without an ethics investigation and then Franken turns around and says, 'Well listen, Moore is here. You're gonna throw me out but you're gonna keep Moore?'" Shapiro explained.

Speaking on the Senate floor, Franken said some of the allegations against him are "simply not true" and others he "remembers differently."

He said he was prepared to cooperate fully with an ethics investigation in Congress and was "confident in the outcome."

He took a parting shot at President Trump, lamenting the "irony" that he is resigning while "a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office."

Franken also bashed the GOP for supporting Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who is alleged to have "repeatedly preyed on young girls."

Shapiro said Republicans who have come out against Moore are making a political sacrifice, but Democrats have yet to make any sacrifice, since Franken and Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) are likely to be replaced by Democrats.

"The RNC endorsed Roy Moore, Trump endorsed Roy Moore and suddenly the entire Democratic Party decided Franken would be the sacrificial lamb so they can grab the moral high ground," he said.

In the latest allegation, journalist and radio host Tina Dupuy claims Franken groped her at a Media Matters party during President Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009.
